By now, regular readers know that I am a huge fan of Mildred’s, so it’s probably no surprise that I returned in order to try yet another of their marvellous burgers. This one is the Polish Burger from the regular menu. It’s served in a focaccia bun with iceburg lettuce, mayonnaise, pickled cabbage and gherkin, and my favourite: vegan cheese! It’s a beetroot, white bean and dill burger, which sounds amazing even to start with.
I chose sweet potato fries as my side – this is probably the one thing that lets Mildred’s down, in that you don’t get your burger with fries or salad as standard. It does rack the price up a bit, which is annoying. But it’s all really amazing food, and even if they don’t change the menu often, I’ve still managed to have something different on three different visits, so there is a lot of variety.
This was probably my favourite burger from Mildred’s so far. The tangy dill against the beetroot is always such a great combination, and the ratio was just right here. The smooth taste of the pesto mayonnaise went beautifully, and it was just so so good with perfectly balanced flavours. It was big too and very filling, which means it a) took me ages to eat and b) was really satisfying. And yes, I managed to eat it without a knife and fork. I will not be defeated by a huge burger!
On the VegBurge scale, I give this…
Taste – 9/10
Price – 6/10
Rest of experience – 8/10
