From The Flavour Trailer

A gourmet butty wagon that occasionally does a pop up in our village. Couldn't refuse.

1 x Bacon Flavour (6oz beef patty, Swiss and American cheese, iceberg, pickled red onions, gherkins, smoked streaky bacon and burger sauce in a toasted potato roll)

1 x Brisket Flavour (6oz beef patty, Swiss and American cheese, iceberg, pickled red onions, gherkins, oak smoked beef brisket in barbecue gravy, chipotle mayo, in a toasted potato roll)

1 x Buttermilk fried boneless chicken thigh pieces in BBQ sauce

1 x House Fries

£34.10

I had the brisket, Mrs 48k had the bacon. Possibly the best burger I've ever eaten, but very very messy. Couldn't manage the chicken thighs.


Sounds very pricey from a roadside van to my mind.
It's the same price from their mobile outlets as their restaurant so yes you could argue it should be a bit cheaper from the roadside than sitting down in the restaurant. That said, as a take away it's still cheaper than eg. Dominos or a Chinese and the two of us will get a second meal out of it as we will have the buttermilk BBQ chicken with some salad today. So pretty good value for money IMO especially given the quality.

I'd eat that myself and be looking for more fries.

2 burgers and chicken wings is a snack!

It's not chicken wings mind you, it's thighs.

Had a burger in a nice Cornish pub yesterday, ordered a Pravha and a berries and cherries, £16

Anyhow two burgers and some sides later and the final bill was £65

Discovered a surprisingly good value burger from our local fish and chip shop. Mrs V. wanted F&C, I didn't, and I was ordering on their website, so I looked at alternatives.

6oz Cheeseburger £5.30, 12oz and extra £1.55 Total £6.80. I added Lettuce, Onions, Tomato and Ketchup for free. The beef patties were thick and juicy and served with brioche buns. This would be a £16 burger elsewhere. The problem with F&C shop burgers are that some just lob them in the fryer and you end up with a dried meat protein thing, and some use the el-cheapo flour buns which are dry.

I've never thought of ordering a beef burger from a chippy because they just don't seem set up for it with a decent grill.

Cheap burgers from chicken shops on the other hand can be good. It really is hit and miss, you pays your money and takes your chances.

It really depends on if they've a good meat supplier and don't have that cheap patty taste. This can change quickly so if you found a good one a week a go there's no guarantee it still is.

A local chippy does amazing flame grilled burgers, granted they use basic catering burgers but they are nice when done on the grill and the properly toasty the buns on the grill too.

One of our local kebab shops have just launched a smash burger joint, only been a couple of times but they are very good.

4 smash patties with cheese is like £8 and then £3 for posh chunky skin on chips and a can of pop.

I'll get a pic next time.

A 'cheeseburger' from a chippy is a guilty pleasure of mine.

Round these parts, if you ask for a Cheeseburger from a chippy you get 2 burgers with cheese slices in-between, and then deep fried, and then put in a buttered roll. It is absolutely delicious, but afterwards you feel absolutely shameful and dirty. Like you do after you've eaten a whole mixed kebab to yourself smile

Patty and Bun Marylebone on Friday so will report back

From what I recall last time (borough market), I reckon 40 quid for burger chips drink and sweet

This is what passes for a cheap meal in London nowadays unless you are prepared to venture into zone 4/5 hole in the wall served by Granny at 1030am on a Thursday!

It is a term used by the working class to refer to the Dessert course.

€21.50 for a chicken burger and chips at a local beach bar (Scheveningen, NL), nice breaded chicken and fresh roll and salad, but too much BBQ sauce.
