Last weekend I ventured down to BRGR.CO on the King’s Road. I’ve been curious about this place since it opened a while ago. Perhaps it’s because I’m a creature of habit but it wasn’t until I was invited in to review the kids menu with Little Man that I finally stepped through these doors.
I love burgers and up until quite recently I’d be there at the opening of a new burger joint. And up until last weekend I thought I had tried it all (almost) in London …
… seen it all …
… and that there were very few surprises left for me to discover. As I learned last weekend, I was wrong. (Don’t you love this cow? I loved the décor in this place.)
So to start with the reason why I was here in the first place: Little Man’s first official review – the kids menu. The pressure was on. Was he going to like the food or not? Little Man is already used to eating out so restaurant etiquette didn’t concern me. He’s not shy to ask to press the green button on the card machine or to call for the ‘lady’ if he wants his ice cream ‘please’, at the tender age of two. But what I hadn’t expected was that Little Man was just on the verge of coming down with an awful bug that he is still suffering from and so his appetite was on its way out when we visited BRGR.CO.
What arrived in front of him were these two cute sliders and some fries. Little Man picked at the fries but struggled with the burgers and later, the old fashioned mac n’cheese. What he didn’t have a problem with was the …
… Oreo cookie milkshake, which he talked about the next day – asking for it, all morning.
The OH and I on the other hand did eat our burgers and I can testify that I was surprised, I clearly haven’t seen it all and this was a brand new experience I hadn’t expected.
Mine was the rump steak burger, which was truly divine. Melt in your mouth succulent and so tasty, I actually forgot to add any sauce or relish. I did ask for guacamole to be added to the burger, which had a smoothness that complimented the whole experience. The OH loved his Hanger Steak Burger too.
We also had some parmesan truffle chips, which were gorgeous as well as …
… matching his and her bubbles.
I am certain that the quality of the grown ups’ food is consistent with the kids’ because as the early evening proceeded, we saw quite a few children come into the restaurant.
As for Little Man, bless his foodie heart, we left with a doggy bag in case he felt a little peckish later.
