I go there especially for their burgers. I mean, they’re just incredible. They’ve got a huge selection, and most of them are completely crazy.
Around the world influences, but especially from south america. I’ve tried their Gringo burger and it was just amazing. Beef, salsa, jalapeños, cheese, tomato, guacamole, red oinions and cilantro. And for a change, instead of serving it with fries, it came with jalapeño poppers (fried jalapeños and cream cheese), sweet potatoes and sour cream. I was so pleased.
I can’t wait to go back and try the rest. They’ve got here the most unlikely burgers which would convince any non-burger addict.
Classic american ones, italian influenced one, but also a pumpkin, nuts and mushroom burger (tough winter, that’s its name actually), two vegetarian burgers with spinach instead of meat, one lamb, sweet potato, harissa and tzatziki burger, and even one with calamari.
They actually have got their own special quotes, it would be a shame not to tell you about them.

I haven’t personally tried their famous banoffee pie yet, but with Sarah, we’ve tried a couple of brunch menus that were pretty good.
But it is not only a place to eat. Their cocktails are on happy hour every tuesday and wednesday from 6 to 8, and their week’s special cocktail is for 5 euros on tuesdays. Which I do find pretty great.
