Not only for Burger lovers
Yes this place is ‘Burger Heaven’ where you can come and design your own burger just the way you like it. But there is also a great range of salads, mains, a selection of wines and cold beers so all can come and enjoy the Mr. Gourmet Burger experience.
So for indecisive me (I do have a problem choosing what to eat on occasions!) I asked Dario our waiter to help me pick a fantastic burger and eventually went for the “Wall Street Burger.” If you like your beef medium, rare or well done make sure you tell them exactly how you like it and they will get it spot on. I opted for a Sesame Bun although there are five different types of bread and if you are gluten intolerant there is a choice for you too free of any additives as well as healthy, low cal options. Inside the Wall Street Burger was delicious smoked mozzarella cheese, crispy bacon, mushrooms, tomato, red onion, rucula salad and BBQ sauce. Just as grand as the name Wall Street this towering burger looked and tasted equally impressive – the beef was tender and juicy and cooked medium rare to perfection.
For the second burger we chose “Le Brie” with lashings of beautifully ripe French cheese to this burger providing a perfect taste combination. We opted for a breadcrumbed chicken filet instead of beef this time – although there is also plain grilled chicken filet on the menu for health conscious diners. The breadcrumbed chicken filet was succulent and of a generous size – much to my hungry lunch companions pleasantly surprised face. We chose a Tomato Bread Bun to accompany the chicken – an interesting bread made with tomatoes and yes the bread is pink a sweeter taste to it – but perfect for this burger which also contained mayonnaise, tomato, salad and caramelised onions.
For our sides we picked French Fries and Hand Cut Fries. I do really recommend the hand cut fries – being one of the best hand cut fries I’ve tasted – not too thick, very crisp and appetising. Even your sides get the gourmet treatment at Mr Gourmet Burger. We picked two accompanying dips; the Tzatziki dip was really fresh with Greek yogurt, cucumber and fresh mint and the second Lemon Aioli is perfect for garlic lovers with the lemon also complimenting the flavours of the chicken.
After the burger and sides if you have any room left I can wholeheartedly recommend trying Mr Gourmet Burger’s impressive desserts. Our friendly waitress Estel recommended the Hot Chocolate Nut Brownie with Vanilla Ice-cream which was not too sweet a choice and not too big to fit in after the burger mains. A must is the carrot cake, this was really beautiful; the sponge was soft and fluffy and the vanilla icing was creamy and plentiful. In case you didn’t know Mr Gourmet Burger is owned by the same restauranteur as Passion Café in San Pedro. The restaurant, which is a mainstay for locals, notoriously serves the best food and desserts in the area and has done so for 15 years now. You know you are in good hands with this professional team.
So all in all my overall experience off Mr. Gourmet Burger was very good; delicious food, a great atmosphere with the outdoor terrace for al fresco dining coupled with friendly staff makes it a comfortable and enjoyable experience.
The food is also highly recommended and you will walk out feeling very satisfied and – another plus point if you need it (!) – is you will have money left in your wallet as a meal at Mr. Gourmet Burger is extremely affordable.
So don’t wait – come and design your own burger today.
