I recently ate this veggie burger while out meeting friends to celebrate Christmas, and of course a great night was had. There was Baileys, good food, and good company, and what more could you wish for? The sweet potato and mozzarella burger, as described on the menu, is served “with peppers and soya beans served in a floured bap with seasoned chips, homemade coleslaw, and a salad garnish”.
So how did it stand up to that description? Well, deliciously, basically. There was smooth sweet potato inside, so creamy and soft that you could barely tell what vegetable it had originated from. If you don’t like sweet potato, you could still love this burger. It was flavourful and a little spicy too, crammed full of lots of little pieces of vegetables like beans and carrots. This was all served up in a coating of crunchy breadcrumbs to make the perfect combination of textures. The bun was also nicely soft and floury, which contrasted well.
The chips and coleslaw were not anything special, but they were good enough. Simple pub fare with no thrills – they were finished off with the inclusion of a small section of salad in a vinaigrette dressing. This was a very filling and satisfactory meal indeed, such that all plans for dessert were abandoned (largely in favour of more Baileys). Please excuse my slightly wobbly phone pictures on this review… it seems the excitement had already got to me!
On the VegBurge scale, I give this…
Taste – 9/10
Price – 6/10
Rest of experience – 9/10
