The Burger Bros Canterbury

This week’s review comes from one of our many trips to Canterbury – when we discovered a little burger place tucked away inside another venue. The Burger Bros brand appears to be steadily expanding, even if they don’t always have the largest facilities, which usually indicates quality, so we were happy to give them a try.

We took a seat where we could enjoy some fleeting gorgeous sunshine and settled in for our food to come. We went for a starter, which consisted of some cheesy bites with a tomato dip to smother them in, described thus: 

Mac ‘N Cheese Wedges

These sharers are crumbed Mac ‘n Cheese which are deep fried and served with a smokey ketchup dipping sauce £5.95

There weren’t many on the platter, but they were very rich and melty (and hot), so that’s probably a good thing. The crunch of the outside and the soft, dripping insides were a great match, and the tomato dip was the perfect accompaniment.  The fact that it was mac and cheese inside was just fabulous, really. The one thing that did worry me was the rather tired wooden platter, bearing many a knife mark from previous diners.

Here’s the burger details: 

Dirty Vegetarian

Our vege patty made with shiitake mushrooms, wild rice, white beans, gram flour & umami flavours is topped with onion, beef tomato and a miso mayonnaise. It’s messy baby! £8.95

The burger had a very soft bun, which held a quite dry burger. The good news is that it was paired with melty cheese and mayonnaise to make it moist again. It had a taste and style reminiscent of falafels. The American-style singles cheese was just delicious, and the burger seemed to be quite carefully spiced.
 
Inside the bun was a nice salad with onions, despite the very large tomato hiding in the lid which I was forced to remove immediately (almost taking half my cheese with it). This was combined with a very rich vinaigrette, onions, and gherkins to complete the picture.

Burger Bros CanterburyIn general it was quite a nice little place, though emphasis on the little. It was so small that when one other customer came in and started talking to the bartender, we could barely hear our own thoughts above it. It was lovely when it was just the two of us, but quickly turned into something different, and I imagine it would be hard to hold a conversation if the venue was full.
