You’re no Prince Akeem, but you’ll feel a little like ‘80s royalty eating at Mélange Burger. This Shaw carryout-only spot is in the same location as Doro Soul Food and has a short but sweet menu: four smashburgers with thin, crispy patties that will satisfy any fast food craving you’re having, plus a side of fries. The McDowell, based off of the restaurant in Coming To America, is the best of the bunch and is full-on special-sauce-lettuce-cheese-pickles-onions-on-a-sesame-seed-bun, but better than McDonald’s ever could. It doesn’t come with two patties, but get it that way, otherwise the toppings can be overpowering. And order ahead so you're not crammed in the tiny waiting area with everyone else who isn’t in the know.
