Bite me: a mini burger pop-up is coming to London

Bite me: a mini burger pop-up is coming to London

What’s better than one burger? Two burgers, duuuuh. And better than that? A box of 12 burgers, of course! That’s just what chef Adam Rawson is set to supply with his Bite Me Burger Co pop-up, launching in Holborn in a couple of weeks.

OK, we realise that mini burgers – aka, sliders – have long been a thing. But Rawson’s got credibility, having seen off bods from top joints Hixter, Ember Yard and Nanban when he won last year’s Slider Decider contest. These mad skillz are reflected in the natty menu at Bite Me: from The BC, his riff on a bacon cheeseburger (featuring cream cheese aioli and brie!), to a Pluck Me chicken burger with yuzu mayo, or the Lambtastic (with smoked yogurt, cumin, jalapeño, stilton and aioli). That’s not to mention a veggie aubergine burger, a non-burger hotdog and a range of thick, Yank-style shakes.

The burgers will be available in twos (£9), threes (£12.50) or fours (£15) – as well as in said 12-burger box, with four portions of fries and four drinks for £59. Perfect for a group (or a determined/demented glutton).

Bite Me Burger Co will be popping up within the really-very-good mash-up Hong Kong café Cha Chaan Teng from Monday June 5 (for a three day soft launch) before opening proper on Thursday June 8, and then getting a permanent site in west London later this year. Oh, and to get your mitts on the soft launch's half-price food and shakes you'll need to register on their website. KER-CHING.

Not burgered senseless yet? Check out our list of London’s top patties, then.

If like me, you like burgers but find them too filling at time, Bite Me Burger may be for you. The concept is simple - mini burgers in a variety of flavours. However, even though the size may be small, you flavour is not at all diminished. I tried the Lambtastic, which was succulent and had a great kick at the end. The Jack Daniels was also lovely and the beef patty was beautifully cooked. I thought the fries were fab - they were crispy and well-seasoned. The sweet potato fries were cooked slightly differently and were soft rather than crispy - I like this, but it may not be everyone. The staff were friendly and genuinely wanted our feedback so that they could make any necessary improvements. A great little find. There are also some fab deals on making this place an inexpensive choice.

Honestly, the pop up was a disaster. They have made us wait for 30 minutes to sit down despite we've had a reservation for two weeks, then they have lost our order (twice!!) and therefore we had to wait for a further hour to get our food. Eventually, we haven't even received what we had ordered. The waiter was very kind though and at least he gave us some fries and 4 mini burgers for free while waiting. 

The mini burgers are pretty and tasty and I found clever the idea of being able to taste all the flavours - if only they had had all the flavours on the menu. Unfortunately, that trial night was a mess, the guys in the kitchen were visibly freaking out and the service was rubbish (how can you loose a simple order TWICE??)

It's a shame, I hope they can improve cause I would like to go back and try the lambtastic and the duck me!!
