A few nights ago I went to try Gourment Burger in Long Street which I menioned in the May newsletter. It’s a small place (less than 10 tables) and the decor is very modern and funky. There must be about 25 different burgers on the menu, some sound delicious, others less so. It’s little disappointing to see a long list of burgers and none of them have bacon. We had 3 different burgers. I had the chilli burger, but it should be called a relish burger because there was no heat at all. The patty was quite good, prepared according to my requested medium. The roll had been lightly toasted which I always like. The chips on the side were pretty good too. The other burger we tried was the camembert and cranberry chicken burger, very good. I can’t remember what the third one was. The prices were in the R27 to R35 range with the ‘special’ burgers being a bit more.
I would say that my overall impression was that it was average. I think I prefer the burgers at Royale.
