Gourmet Burger Kitchen - Bath Food Review
Posted on: 2016-10-05
There aren’t many burger places in Bath and even few that do great burgers. I went to try Gourmet Burger Kitchen as their sole purpose is to provide the best burgers around, here’s my review just for you!
Based in Southgate, right next to Bath Spa train station it’s ideally placed not only for residents but for tourists travelling in from other cities. Stop off here and the funky retro music invites you in to the casual, almost diner-style, restaurant so you can kick back and relax.
As you would expect from a burger place there’s quite a range available to suit many tastes, there are even bun-less burgers for those who want something healthier. Chicken burgers are available, though there aren’t as many as the infamous beef ones, but there are lots of ingredients you can customise your burger with. Seeing as beef patties are the original classic, I chose the Blue Cheese beef burger which has onion jam, Cajun relish, house mayo and salad. There’s a choice to add even more cheese to it, so I asked for blue cheese sauce as I was hoping for that delectably strong cheesy taste. I am a big cheese lover, as I’m sure many of you are, so I ordered a side of Truffle Cheese Fries too!
Delving straight into the Truffle Cheese fries once they arrived, they were dripping with cheese and moreish. The Truffle Cheese sauce was rich and creamy, and there was a layer of grana padano cheese on top aswell. They were so rich I couldn’t finish them all, even though I wanted to because they were so tasty. Burgers are freshly made to order here and it shows because the patty itself did indeed taste fresh and wasn’t overdone. With the amount of blue cheese in the burger I was expecting to have a bit more of a stronger taste from the cheese itself, but it was enough to satisfy my craving. The sweetness of the onion jam was fantastic next to the other contrasting flavours especially the cheese. It was nice to have a mix of flavours and this meant that I didn’t get bored of the taste as I was eating it, which is of course what we all want.
You can’t beat a good burger and now I know that you probably can’t beat Gourmet Burger Kitchen if you want to get your hands on some of the best burgers in the city. It's fab value as the burger is only £7.95 and the fries £3.95. Well worth it if you want to leave very full and with a satisfied cheese craving.
