Me and my Boyfriend, hopped on the train from Leicester to Birmingham to do some christmas shopping and grab ourselves a burger!
GBK is getting one up on Handmade Burger Co., who have ‘NGCI’ but don’t offer GF buns.
So I was very excited to taste the competition, and as you have probably read…I love BFree’s bread and bun selection!
So we arrived, and I asked to see the Gluten Free Menu (which unfortunately isn’t available online- which will put off a lot of coeliacs/GF’s), it looked pretty good…
So my voucher only extended to the basic cheeseburger, so I added bacon and gerkins just because I could…
Firstly the service:
I liked GBK, I liked the free lemony tap water, I liked the free nuts, I liked the free weird salt. I liked how the waitresses knew what was going on and its reasonably cheap (however, still on the every now and then price bracket)…ooooohhh and the refillable ‘Fresh and Fizzy’ was delcious…. I had the elderflower one!
I had a little trouble when they waiter came out with the food, the chips aren’t gluten free (I know! why do they do this too us) …So they had the chips on the same tray as my coleslaw and it was all touching and what not….
There was also an issue with my boyfriends burger (They brought the wrong one…but thats not GF related)
So I explained the issue and asked them to make me a new coleslaw…whether they did or not I’ll never know…
Secondly the burger:
The burger itself was very good, the bun delicious (a bit dry but that’s probably because it might have been sat out) but altogether great, and that jalapeño coleslaw was incredible….I don’t understand how it was so nice. Not as nice as chips- granted- but a pretty good alternative.
I’d certainly come again! Well done BFree and well done GBK… just get those chips GF and get an online menu!!
Next time…Watch out blue cheese burger…I’m coming to get you…
My views are my own and 100% honest, I don’t let the fact that I receive freebies get in the way of my reviews!
Today I went for the £5.95 lunch deal at the Chiswick branch. I’ve been a few times since this first post and it’s always been great. However, today the bun was the worst I’ve tasted in a long time. It was dry and really crumbly and nothing like the bread I had in this post! Lets hope it was a one off.
