So it is all over. I swore I wouldn’t eat any bread with things in it for a while, that didn’t last. Just yesterday I had a Halloumi Burger at The Chippery and it was lovely.
My final two burgers were good ones. My last burger was my winner, it was mad, incredible and a brain teaser. Anyway, the final burgers.
This burger was good, the patty was really tasty and I could tell it wasn’t just beef. The halloumi could have been a bit thicker so that it tasted a bit more. I did enjoy it t.
I had the burger as part of the 2 course with beer menu. The dessert was a little odd, I love a good semolina cake but this was served with a chocolate ganache. The chocolate ganache was more like buttercream and didn’t go with the cake at all.
The main let down was how noisy The Borough is, I was there with a group of friends and we couldn;t hear each other. The service was also terrible. I felt like we were served by my stroppy teenage daughter. It did amuse us though.

These guys get a big title. They won my Burger Wars.
I know, a sweet burger? Yep. It was a very clever burger. It looked so much like a burger and that fact hurt my brain. My mouth kept expecting warm and meat but got cold and ice cream. When my brain got the sweet signals it was very happy.
I was stunned, as were my family. They were a bit silly and didn’t get one for themselves but I gave in and let them try mine. The Clareville Bakery doughnut bun was warm and this made it easier to eat the Cookie-crumbed burnt chocolate gelato patty. Everything about this burger came together, the sauces were great and the ‘cheese’ was the perfect thickness.
I finished Visa WOAP 2017 very happy.
