The Counter Custom Burgers
The first UK outlet for the US create-your-own burger specialists, boasting over a million combinations to dither over.
This American chain specialises in create-your-own burgers. There are over 90 choices – from salmon patties, to English muffin buns, to truffle Gloucester cheese and quinoa toppings – leading to over 1 million possible combinations. You get a stubby little pencil and a tick box form to make your choices – a bit like at the bookies. The beef burgers are made from all natural, antibiotic-free Angus meat: the thin patties are charred and served pink, and you can taste the quality so it’s worth doubling up. Opt for a ‘sauce flight’ like horseradish aioli or spicy tomato jam because they’re unusual, delicious, and great for dipping your golden sweet potato fries in, or smearing on your already-overflowing burger. Signature burgers are also on offer, which sound fabulous but feel like far less fun than creating your own. However, be warned – don’t come here when you are really hungry, or else you could tick too many boxes and end up with a big freak of a burger and some strange flavour combos (note: alfalfa sprouts and salt and vinegar crisps go as badly together as expected). However, if that’s the case then you only have yourself to blame.
