We are now fully in the throes of the festive season. Mince pies with brandy butter, mulled wine, whisky macs, the office party (!). Whilst all these things are rather glorious, an unfortunate (and inevitable) side effect is the dreaded December Hangover. Luckily for all of us, throughout the Christmas period, Byron is serving up the ultimate burger to stave off hunger and headaches: The Triple Cheesemas.
This monster consist of two 6oz patties layered with “the holy trinity” of Emmenthal, melted American cheese and Monterey Jack. As well as all this cheesy deliciousness, it contains onions, shredded iceberg, pickles and spicy burger sauce served up in a classic Byron glazed bun. Is it good…? The pictures speak for themselves.
Those wanting to indulge in a little hair-of-the-dog action can get stuck into the strong list of craft beers on offer. I decided to go for an Oreo milkshake (don’t think about the calories – it’s worth it) as it was still early in the day, and Byron’s ice cream is made especially for them, which will explain why their shakes are just soooo creamy and amazingly good. Having said that, I was neither able to finish the burger, nor the shake as the combination of the two was perhaps a little epic, but who cares? What is Christmas for if not a little overindulgence!?
The Triple Cheesemas is available from all of Byron’s restaurants for £11.95 until the 6th of January 2014.
