That looks shit...
Not convinced about Yorkshire Pudding. Think it would go soggy, but I like the concept.
Now that is a proper burger
I like my chips to be chunky and all, but I've had roast potatoes smaller than those!
Tucked into a cheeseburger with the works from Bunsen, after the races yesterday. I must have looked very amusing, wolfing down a burger in my fur, satin and sheepskin!
Sounds like a lovely outfit... was it vintage?
I don't think any of it was real vintage: the rabbit fur was sold to me by my mates sister, the Isabelle silk headband is from Hong Kong, and the boots are Australian UGGs. I teamed it with a white leopard print coat with shiny black buttons (think I got it in TK Maxx many moons ago).
Bet it looked lovely.
It sounds very nice.
Byron burgers is rumoured to be in trouble - the Glasgow branch was closed suddenly on 4th January. Other branches being considered according to Evening Express newspaper (Aberdeen publication).
Had Wowburger tonight! The burger was succulent and juicy, with excellent wowburger sauce, pickles, plastic cheese and iceberg lettuce, while the garlic butter fries were crunchy on the outside, fluffy in the middle. The caramel milkshake was best of all. A sensational taste experience! And only €12.50 for the lot.
Mrs SFM is partial to a “posh” burger but I’m a BK Cheeseburger purist. Most will probably disagree but I think that the essence and purpose of a burger is cheap quick food on the move and once it becomes impossible to pick up and eat with one hand it ceases to serve that function and it’s just pieces of cooked meat piled up inside a woefully inadequately sized bun. Mind you, if you’ve got massive hands and a mouth that opens to a terrifying size then the posh burger might actually be a practical snack on the go
Made the mistake of trying a 'Five Guys' burger when I was in town after my last physio appointment.
Big, soggy and tasteless I'm afraid. The 'grilled onions' were anything but and they made it a cheeseburger when I'd only ordered a plain. Even the addition of cheese couldn't save it.
The chips however were excellent and even the smallest portion was a good solid feed but at thirteen-odd quid for a drippy-burger and chips, I doubt I'll be back.
I wasn't impressed when I tried five guys either, to be honest.
The other thing that pissed me off was that it was too soggy to eat one-handed - which was an important factor when I had an arm out of comission. Every time I took a bite, at last as much fell-off as went in my mouth, so I had to pick a lot of it from the bag, which at least I'd spread out.
I recall doing the same thing, and had spread the bag out too, as you say just as well as it went everywhere.
Haven't been back, much prefer local guys bread meats bread to be honest. Really good.
If it hasn't been mentioned yet, anyone in or near Bristol has to try Oowee, the burgers are amazing but also the dirty fries are next level.
Big Cheese burger with Chicken Kiev Fries standard.
Anywhere that sells 'dirty fries' gets a hard no from me.
You are seriously missing out if you don't want buttermilk fried chicken, mozzarella and honey mustard on top of garlic butter coated fries.
Yeah all this 'dirty burger' and 'dirty fries' bollocks just makes me think of poor hygiene practices
What's a 'hard no' as opposed to a 'regular no' SpookyFrank? Is it something like a 'dirty no'?
More dirt for me then
It's a no without the possibility of any amount of persuasion, cajoling or altering of parameters turning it into a yes at any point in the future.
Fries (n) (US): Shit chips.
Methinks the person doth protest too much.
It’s an awful expression - “dirty” should bugger back off to hipster world
That looks epic. Sadly I'm the wrong end of the country.
I'm ok with the term "dirty"
But not in the way they use it. For me it is reserved for things like a doner kebab. Or the sort of burger you'd get from a van in a dual carriageway's layby.
Yeah, that rings true for me. I've had some awesomeness basic food van burgers, partly because my expectations start low so I can be pleasantly suprised.
If I'm paying a tenner plus for a burger I expect it to be dam good.
Oh wow, that looks good. Want.
Going to new branch of bread meats bread tomorrow evening, will try to remember to take photos for thread.
Cajuns have been cooking authentic (and delicious) "dirty rice" for many decades before hipsters began to soil their fries.
