    Jesus, that sounds good. Really nice menu there and pretty reasonable prices too.

    Schoolboy error. Thought that Burger Bros "Hello Me" halloumi burger would be a nice meaty burger topped with halloumi.

    It was infact a massive wedge of grilled halloumi and not a sniff of meat in sight. It was the goddam veggie option. Sick bastards!

    Always pays to read the menu properly.....

    I welcome this! Then you can see what you're getting or be jealous of what others have made themselves. The downside being that it always makes me hungry.

    Plus, I love the topic of food.

    I had a pork and black pudding burger last night. It was really good and surprisingly light.

    I have no pictures though, sorry nick.

    In other news I also picked up some chilli 'jam' from a local company that I have been adding to my burgers recently. It's great.

    I still want to find some of this fabled bacon jam that was mentioned many pages back.

    @Razz I've been meaning to go there for ages as it sounds and looks amazing but I've always wondered...do you get one or two with one serving?

    You get one, each mini burger is 6.50 o_O But they are worth it, best non beef burger I've ever tasted. :)

    Oh man...were two filling enough or did you have to order more other delightfully tasty sounding tapas from there?

    Definitely one to go to with the wife rather than lads from work then!

    Yeah, we had the chips, they use a very lovely season salt, some padron peppers, olives, Crispy Ibérico pig's ear (tasted a bit like gourmet pork scratchings :D), marjoram and chilli salami and some bread with aioli, All very tasty!

    That's a tiny bun! I'd imagine when you smash it all together it gets pretty messy. Not as though that's necessarily a bad thing.

    gf made some buns the other day so I'd like to make a chicken based burger this week.

    Any ideas/Tips?

    Went to Meat Liqour recently.

    Best burger I have ever eaten. Their chilli challenge looks immense.

    Chilli burger, chilli dog and chilli fries - if you manage it in 10 mins you eat for free.

    Really not sure about the monster munch in that combo.

    That's exactly what I thought - no they seem pretty normal. I think I'm gonna try it next time im in london - prices are reasonable too, only £15 if you cant manage it.

    @Goodfella They are quite big, deceptively so, but it is doable if you've got a big appetite. Te record is something silly though

    I've heard good things about almost Famous from my northern chums, but I would also hesitate at a burger containing Monster Munch. It just seems gimmicky and plain wrong.

    Yeah, what's the point in effectively dumbing down all that good quality meat and the way it's been cooked? You may as well sprinkle shit on it.

    Sorry, looks horrible and sounds horrible. Monster munch? The bun and patty ratio is ridiculous. The patty doesn't look good, either. It looks burnt on the bottom and the side looks strangely pale.

    Read quite a few bad/mediocre reviews of it from burger sites, too. This is going on be at meatopia the but can't say I'm tempted at all.

    It's a very rare burger that bob turns his nose up at!

    Yeah, you're right about the bun/meat ratio too Bob. Looks bloody stupid and I bet they ran out of the right size buns.

    @wobbly_Bob Dunno, rare burgers can be pretty darn decent if the meats good quality...though medium rare is my preference for bunned glory.
