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.
