Feeling very much the idea of burger and chips for lunch today, imagine my delight that today was the day a new branch of the Hand Made Burger Co. was opening not 100 yards from where I work. Yay!
So, come lunchtime and feeling sufficiently peckish, I set-out through the sunshine (yesterday forgotten) to sample it’s delights. Now, this isn’t McDonalds! It’s an eating place of the popular genre of themed chain restaurants like Nando’s, Frankie & Benny’s etc. I had not been to one of these before, but I was talked though the menu and system by the very helpful waitress.
This is not fast food either, I think they must have to go out to catch a cow AFTER you order. Fair do’s though, this was their first day and I guess the staff must be on a learning curve. It was real food, thank goodness; you know when after eating a McDonalds, you get that after taste that tells you what you have eaten was not strictly wholesome? And, afterwards you are also somehow not fully satisfied? Well, I am pleased to say there was no such sensations after eating the wholesome burger and chunky “hand cut” chips at this joint. It was a good job I didn’t have a glass of wine or beer with the meal, or else I really would have gone to sleep in the afternoon.
All in all, an excellent meal, very tasty and good service. They also do a very delicious line in skewers and I can’t wait to try a minted lamb burger. Mmmm.
I really needed my run this evening to burn off those calories.
