I love burgers. Really – pink meat, glistening cheese, a delicious assortment of toppings all sandwiched between bread and accessorised with deep fried potato – what’s not to love? In fact, one of the only thing I like as much as burgers is a good excuse to eat them – and trying out the new Christmas burger at GBK, combined with a bit of a hangover, gave me the perfect excuse!
I (obviously) ordered the new burger, amusingly named ‘Bah Hamburger’ – beef, smoked cheese, crispy bacon, Ebenezer pickle, crispy onions and mayo. I have to admit, it doesn’t sound really particularly festive – but surprisingly, it did taste it! The beef was soft and juicy, and the pickle kind of tastes like cranberries, giving it a really nice flavour without being overly sweet. And it’s not bad to look at, either.
There’s a really good deal at GBK at the moment where you can get a burger, fries and a drink for £14.95. I was so tempted by the Christmas milkshake but I’ve ordered the milkshakes before at GBK and literally never managed to finish one, so I went with a diet coke and sides of sweet potato fries and sweetcorn, my one true love. Oh, and free monkey nuts, obviously!
The fries were perfectly cooked – some crispy, some soft, the best combo – and served with baconnaise. Bacon mixed with mayonnaise. Possibly the best invention since a spiralizer, if a little less good for you – who knows? It’s like…calcium and protein. Right?!
All I can say it was one of those Friday lunchtimes that are good for the soul! Have you tried out GBK’s Christmas offerings yet? What’s your favourite Christmas burger?
