– 13 Back Swinegate, York, North Yorkshire YO1 8AJ
Spending a few days in York city as celebrations for my girlfriends birthday meant many opportunities to experience a proper Yorkshire burger.
On our last night in York we found a quaint restaurant set away in the back streets with chairs spilling out onto the cobbles with many satisfied faces and aromas that you could smell from a distance. Seated, jug of an exotic cocktail on the table and good conversation meant the wait for the food was close to non-existent which is always exactly what you hope for.
The most hideously ginormous piece of meat sandwiched between two inadequate pieces of bread was delivered along side chunky chips, onion rings and generic salad (nobody cares about that). The most interesting trait that this burger holds is the lamb. The lamb made it for me, it’s truly nothing like I’ve tasted before.. Giving you a similar taste to a kebab which was very strange.
Huge, but still succulent meant the meat was easy to enjoy but was too much to handle aswell as the counterparts. The burger felt like it was missing something, maybe a tasty sauce? Just didn’t quite blow me away. Burger rating; 5 out of 10.
