Right, London. You’ve had burgers. You’ve had doughnuts. You may well have had a burger wedged between two doughnuts. But have you ever eaten – or, er, desired – a burger INSIDE a doughnut? Anyone? Bueller?
Well, dream no longer. Covent Garden’s self-styled American diner Maxwell’s – they’re old hands at this kind of kerazy stuff – have done the decent thing and created the bacon cheeseburger doughnut. For better or worse (better) it’s as it sounds: a beef patty, some Monterey Jack cheese, chopped gherkins, bacon and a squirt of ketchup jam are encased in doughnut batter, deep fried and served with chips. For a not-at-all despicable £14.95. It actually looks rather marvellous; also, there’s no bun, so the carb-conscious can gorge without guilt.
In any case, interested parties should get themselves to Maxwell’s from tomorrow (Thursday September 28).
