London LOVES its burgers.
Not that we’d globe up any old Mickey D’s classics, though.
The delightful mix of juicy patties, weirdly addictive plastic cheese and magic ‘secret’ sauce might taste like our childhood, but us Londoners now love our buns to be a touch more elaborate, with provenance’d and pedigree’d ingredients.
And then some day (this week) the best thing happened.
And by the best thing, I mean one of London’s best burger spots, BRGR.CO launched their own take on McD’s Big one.
Named ‘The Founder’ as an hommage to the soon-to-be-released movie, it comprises of two of BRGR’s signature Blade steak patties with melted cheese, shredded iceburg lettuce, pickled gherkins, and of course, the secret recipe BRGR.CO sauce, all inside a triple layer sesame bun.
With carefully sourced ingredients, it’s the best of both burger worlds and a thing of true meaty beauty, and very, very close to the original.
Except better, because the meat is cooked properly (and incredibly marbled). Nothing dry or chewy about it; it’s pure juiciness in a (soft) bun. And because the fries are approximatively 100 billion times better.
Unfortunately, it’s a limited edition sort of burger, which will only be on sales 13th-26th February from both BRGR.CO locations.
BRGR.CO Soho: 187 Wardour Street, London W1 8ZB
BRGR.CO Chelsea: 127 King’s Road, London SW3 4PW
I have just one piece of advice: get your hands on The Founder BRGR soon.
Even better yet, pair it up with a trip to the cinema.
Burger (movie) + Burger (& fries) = the perfect combo!
