The One With The Butchers Club Burgers – It’s No Place For A Diet

I couldn’t remember the last time I had burger this good.

The Butchers Club Burgers

Imagine this – a packed corner shop with hard, tall stools and sharp edged tables. A roaring kitchen doing a brisk trade and a bustling crew of waiters serving trays of burgers and fries. I was eating standing up – partly because I figured I would use less space that way, and because I expect my waistline to dangerously expand after some serious burger-guzzling.

Which I did. And it did.

The burger was a work of genius. Dry-aged for some 20+ days, the Angus beef from down under was pounded, blended and seasoned in house, and then made into these huge patties for the burger. The taste was down right funky (in a very good way), and I couldn’t decide if I should be loving the delicious meat served with cheddar cheese, bacon, onions, pickles and tomatoes, or to worry about what it would do to my diet.

What diet? Forget that you are on one when faced with this. I even saw one guy who chomped down on not one but two of these beauties. Oh my….

As if the burger is not bad enough, we had a serving of fries each. And it’s no ordinary fries – chunky wedges of potatoes tripled fried with duck fat (yes you read that right!), and then sprinkled with sea salt. The result was an amazingly delicious “fries” which was so good, no additional sauce needed. Though if you needed some, there were a selection of bottles to choose from, from the sweet to the spicy.

Butchers Club Burgers was self-service only, and turnover was quick, prompt and cheerful. Not exactly a place for dates nor cosy conversation, but you would be hard pressed to find a friendlier place. I bet they do some custom order at the kitchen too – I saw one of the chefs double up the burger with some fries, generously drenched with mayonnaise. Oh god…

Verdict? Bad ass burgers had never tasted so good. Damn fries!
