We started off with a run around Victoria Park in South Bristol, before heading off on an adventure to Cotham Hill to check out a much talked about pop-up at 40 Alfred Place. I'm not sure how long 40 Alfred Place has been open for business, but it's the cutest little event space ready to hire out for private events or restaurant pop ups.
Each burger is made with brisket, short rib and chuck beef, hung for 21 days and then minced by PBK themselves in a very particular way. Adventures in Gastronomy went into more detail about this, so I'll just keep it simple and say that it worked - this was something very special indeed. A shout out also goes to Wriggle, as we managed to get an absolute steal of a deal!
I opted for the 6oz burger smothered in cheddar cheese, chipotle mayonnaise and a range of salads, served with sweet potato fries (and a gluten free bun), whilst T stacked his up with onion rings too and dunked them in some Southwest BBQ sauce. Such a satisfying lunch! It was also really good to talk to Jem, Daniel and Andrew about their creations and what the future holds, as they are obviously so passionate about what they do. Unfortunately no more Bristol just yet, but we will be able to pop over the bridge to see them (and taste more burgers) at various venues in Cardiff around the time of the Rugby World Cup. Do check them out!
So, whilst there is absolutely no pretentiousness about the burgers, I thought the name is a good enough excuse to leave you with this...
