I should blog about Brewery's. Okay boss, I will do. A brewery that has a burger residency too, even better. I tweeted motherflipper burger recently to come to North London so I could try their burger. They didn't respond because they've always been in North London- at Kentish Town West under the arches of the station.
The venue is slightly hidden but this doesn't stop many punters coming along. To be honest I think most were there for the drinks and not the burger and there was a real good atmosphere. The drinks were flowing and i went for the recommended Hells Larger, unfiltered Hells larger and the Pale Ale. All were really tasty and a good change from the usual Buds etc.
The real reason for going however, was for the above. The Motherflipper burger. If the beer didn't make me happy then the burger did. Thankfully, both more than succeeded and i was more than happy to walk an hour from work for these two.
The burger above was the double bacon candy flipper and the secret here was there maple syrup covered bacon. The first bite into this burger just oozed a load of juices and the melted cheese and medium cooked patty were excellent and delightful. Added to this, the glazed bun and crispy but sweet bacon make this burger one that i will definitely be revisiting. Sometimes too many words are not needed and a breakdown isn't needed to. Trust me on this one; you need to go to this pop-up and have their burgers. Like Bleecker St Burger, it is one of those where you won't fill full after but you will be very happy. I was contemplating having another one after half an hour, but that would have been greedy.
A notable mention is also the BBQ wings which i had with the burger. These were amazingly tender (think patty & bun wings) and the BBQ sauce all over them were very tasty. I still the thing ones from patty & bun are better but the meat just fell off the bones and made this a messy , yet pleasant experience. I am looking forward to going again, a beer and a burger on a friday night. AWESOME.
