A huge range of tasty patties and lots, lots more.
Walking into this venue, we were immediately struck by the large space, perfectly suited for throngs of customers and families. We didn’t have high hopes, however, because the place was so quiet. Nevertheless, as we flipped through the picture menu, we had a glimmer of hope that the meal might be impressive. Among the usual suspects we found wraps and healthy turkey and chicken options, which seemed rather appetising.
The waitress soon came to take our order and we settled on curly fries, onion rings, and the Chopper and Sundance Kid burgers. The Chopper consisted of grilled chicken breast with fresh rocket leaves, sundried tomatoes, Parmesan shavings and pesto sauce. We chose brown bread with this concoction. The Sundance Kid consisted of beef with slices of beetroot, salsa and other adornments.
Not long after we had ordered, our appetisers arrived and we dug in. The curly fries were topped with melted cheese and were a tad oily. The same applied to the onion rings, which had a lot of batter on them. Despite the grease factor, they both tasted good. After nibbling on these starters, we were again a little apprehensive about the upcoming burgers.
Soon after, our smiling waitress delivered two plates with our mains. The burgers each came with a side of avocado dip and some nacho chips. The guacamole tasted nice and was a great accompaniment as a dip for the burgers. The mains surpassed the starters in execution and taste; with brown buns and fresh ingredients, they almost felt like guilt-free burgers. The Chopper was one of the best chicken burgers we’ve had, and the combination of the rocket leaves and the pesto sauce brought out the flavours really well. The Sundance Kid was equally impressive, the meat was cooked to perfection and not too spiced or greasy.
Both burgers were extremely satisfying and surprisingly light. While there are heavier options on the menu, it is clear that Burger Bureau intends to cater to all tastes. Having enjoyed the food, we were at a loss as to why we were the only customers in the venue.
We decided to undo any good work we’d done with the chocolate molten cake, a hot sponge cake bottom and a large scoop of vanilla ice cream slowly melting on top. We were immediately struck by the sweetness of the ice cream and the slight bitterness of the cake. The portion is excellent for sharing, so for those who have a sweet tooth, they should definitely leave some room for a bite or two of this dessert. We noted other interesting items on the menu as well, such as deep fried Mars bars with ice cream.
Overall, our experience was very positive. The service was friendly, the food came quickly and the meal was satisfying and definitely worth the trip. It’s a shame that the venue was deserted. Hopefully burger lovers
will soon venture out and discover this gem in the city.
