Wood Winds’ Hawaiian Burger
By Kristi Kates | April 8, 2017
Winter might be taking its time departing northern Michigan, but you can get a sweet taste of warmer weather via one of the brand new selections arriving on Wood Winds Restaurant & Pizzeria’s menu, newly updated for spring.
Our pick, the Wood Winds Hawaiian Burger, starts with a flour–dusted telera roll, a bread similar to ciabatta with roots in Mexico, where it’s often used to make a sandwich called a torta.
But we digress. It’s back to Hawaii for this savory burger, which then stacks a patty of 100 percent ground chuck underneath a slice of grilled ham, a grilled pineapple ring, mozzarella cheese and a sweet red chili sauce made in–house.
As concocted by Wood Winds manager Les Tennant, the sweet and savory ingredients perfectly complement each other for a hearty and unusual lunch that hints at the flavors of summer on the way.
The Wood Winds Hawaiian Burger arrives with an order of super crispy Evercrisp French fries for $8.99 at Wood Winds Restaurant & Pizzeria, located at 20812 Washington Avenue in Onaway. For more information, dial (989) 733-2212 or visit online at woodwindsonaway.com.
