So yesterday was fun at Bundance on NationalBurgerDay in the U.K. (the USA one is in May). Being global burger fans, we get to celebrate this twice a year, but truly, whenever you fancy a burger 🤷🏼♀️
Anyway, yesterday I managed just four sliders, clearly out of match practise, but here they are:-
1. The Mark Tuckaburg 2.0, 50-day aged beef (100g), American cheese, bacon jam, mayo, roast roast garlic butter toasted bun, served with pickles on the side. Thoughts: pickles could be sharper to cut through the sweetness of the bacon jam but lovely beefy flavour. Definitely want to try a regular sized burger now.
2. The Cheeseorito from @bleeckerburger 50 day aged beef patty (85g), Dorito house sauce, Doritos, American cheese, Dorito crumb Bleecker bun 😎 Thoughts: If you have been following me a while, you know I love Bleecker. What’s not to love about this fun slider? Beef on point as always 🙏🏼
3. The Deal Breaker by @handsomeburgergalway Brady’s Irish Beef (100g), candied bacon, Derg cheese, Buckie onions (Slow braised w/Buckfast wine) & Celtic pickles. Thoughts: bun was too dense but considering they brought everything including the buns, that may have added to the texture but enjoyable nonetheless and that cheese is wonderful & the star of the slider.
4. A Tasty Little Mouthful by @fourlegs_ldn, Aged Dexter beef patty (80g), Emmental, lettuce, tomato, onion, pickle, bacon & liquid smoke burger sauce. Thoughts : so this was interesting. I’ve heard fantastic things about their in-house, pared back burger, but for the slider they threw in salad, which may not have been needed. So now I’m in two minds ☺️
Regardless, it was great to see some genuinely lovely people out & about last night meet some new ones!
