Isn’t it funny, that in London we lust for a no messin’ New York style Burger, yet in New York they lust after sandwiches – alright, not quite the crusts-off twee triangles we have here. It seems like we all want what we ain’t got? BRGR. CO in Soho, whom are Lebanese chain, look to the Upper East Side for their patty styling, with last week’s burger celebrating all things Irish – get your head around that one for an international case of keeping up with the Joneses.
Residents of Wardour Street were treated to 7 days worth of the Doubl-in burger, which gave two helpings of the 4oz patty, a layer of mature Kings Irish cheddar and a stacking of Galtee bacon, crispy kale, lettuce, onions tomatoes and pickles.
Whether you’re a leg man or a boob man, BRGR. CO make their baps and buns fluffy on the inside and glazed like a raincoat on the outside, with their succulent patties slotted inside – served preferably medium rare.
Burgertorium sides are trumped, with parmesan truffle fries, messy chilli cheese fries and flaming chilli fries – which are suggestively dunkable in BRGR. CO’s periodic tables of sauces. Dunk your dip-sticks into cajun aioli, horseradish mustard yogurt, malt tarragon aioli or the sweet BRGR CO house dip.
On the quest to find the pot of gold at the end of this burger flavoured rainbow, you’ll be needing ample liquids and what more appropriate than a Lucky Charm milkshake, or if you’re looking for something with a bit more of a buzz, the Irish coffee will be just the ticket to make you feel as blessed as a shamrock.
In this not so sleepy town we call London, the butchers, bakers and candlestick makers have steadily been replaced by gourmet burger joints, concept stores and apple stores – which sell products far from organic. Yet unlike many gourmet burger bars BRGR. CO really are producing some thing fresh; keeping up with the Jones in London, New York, Ireland and Lebanon.
