Our friend Carol in Hereford suggested we go to her sons' friend's Burger Shop for our last dinner with her. She warned me that knives and forks were not used! In case I could not cope she took a fork with her! (As it turned out she needed a fork for her dish but she was provided with a fork.) On seeing the menu I could see that flatware would be a nonsense. It is a limited menu but it has been the best food experience so far on this trip. The address is: 32 Audrey Street, Hereford. They do takeaway as well. They will be opening up a restaurant as well next door in the near future. Food will be 'plated'.
Philip and I shared the Wigmore Pheasant Burger - this was confit of pheasant with beef patty, bramble ketchup, walnut & chervil mayo, fennel & watercress on a brioche bun. We also had rabbit croquettes (I want to replicate these) with smoked tarragon mayo, cauli cheese croquettes with a hot sauce and rosemary potatoes. All so memorable.
This was Carol's choice - Lentil Burger - this was puy lentils with a soft cheese patty, burnt red pepper chutney, celeriac & yoghurt slaw, roast garlic mayo, ketchup, leaves - Carol asked to have this without the brioche bun - hence the need for a fork! I had a couple of mouthfuls of this delectable dish.
Philip and I had a Spiced Pear Crumble. This was a Black Hole Lane Pear compote with an oat crumble served with an apple and blackberry icecream.
Carol said I had to pay a visit to their loo! This is what I saw!
A friend of Dorian and Edwin's (the two brothers who own this enterprise) painted these murals for them. I did write down her name on a slip of paper and now that scrap eludes me. The lads have acknowledged her as the creator of the murals in the loo.
