The Welsh Medium Rarebit | Available only tonight at Rex 1516
Tonight, Tuesday, September 2nd, Rex 1516′s Justin Swain is taking my idea for a Welsh Rarebit burger and turning it into a reality.
The Welsh Medium Rarebit is stuffed with a fontina, mustard, Worcestershire mix and then topped with caramelized onions and a caraway beer cheese. Get it, a beer and shot of whiskey for $15.
The Welsh Medium Rarebit kicks off another month of special Tuesday night burgers at Rex. Next week will feature a burger created by Philadelphia Eagles first-round draft pick Marcus Smith. September 16th's burger will be by Zagat's Danya Henninger. September 23rd will have Jonathan Deutsch, Professor and Director of Drexel's Center for Hospitality & Sport Management coming up with a burger and on September 30th, Mike Jerrick of FOX 29 will be taking his shot.
