Off to watch Strictly Come Dancing (the live tour) yesterday in sheffield, we paid a visit to Meadowhall and decided to visit the Handmade Burger Company for lunch. We were first met with a "please queue here for a table" sign but were greeted within a few seconds and taken to a spare table. The surroundings were clean and open - no tripping over shopping bags here! we were given a three page menu and allowed time to browse. Two thirds of the menu was devoted to burgers - a range of beef, lamb, chicken and fish with a stunning array of toppings, mayo and side salads. The menu also includes a number of salds and side orders. the chips, for example, are all freshly cut each day and the burgers are avaliable to see being cooked - this is fresh food - not fast food.
After placing our order the wait was barely ten minutes and the largest burger you have ever seen arrived. I had ordered beef with cheese and bacon - the burger was around an inch thick and the chips were just like mum makes.
Let me make this clear - this is not macdonalds and the price reflects this - my burger was £6.95 and the chips were an extra £2 or so. But this is quality food, from responsibly sourced animals - and you can really taste the difference. There are offers around to reduce the price (the meadowhall web site currently has a 2 for 1 offer on the burgers) but this is a grown up meal that simply takes you away from the stresses of shopping. I, for one, will be going back again.
Summary: Half an hour away from the stresses of shopping - yummy!
