Gourmet Burger Kitchen Manchester Spinningfields Review: October 2017
The Gourmet Burger Kitchen brand began in 2001, when world famous chef Peter Gordon along with three kiwi guys set up their first Gourmet Burger Kitchen site in Battersea South London. Now, fast forward to 2017 and they now have over 80 restaurants across the UK. The focus is on quality handcrafted burgers using the freshest ingredients and creating all their burger sauces daily from scratch.
Located Left Bank along the River Irwell, in the heart of Spinningfields is Manchester’s Gourmet Burger Kitchen. The delightful outdoor terrace is great for some al fresco dining in the sun. Décor is light, airy loft feel with contemporary light fittings and table sections. There is a selection of help yourself condiments such as the red and green hot sauces. Service is casual with a relaxed vibe.
Welcomed warmly by the team, we got settled and while perusing the menu, we enjoyed some liquid refreshments including the Meantime London Pale Ale, which has both Kentish and American hops, that give a citrus flavour with a bitter finish. Also, the non-alcoholic Strawberry and elderflower fizz which visually looked lovely and refreshed the taste buds.
Fly the flags and bring on the brilliant burgers and why not take life in the fast lane and order the tasty ‘Taxi Driver’ whipped up with American cheese, house onion ring, Cajun relish, smoked chilli mayo, dill pickle and salad or keeping things chilled with the vegan ‘Dippy Hippy’, which has a homemade & pan-fried bean patty, beetroot & mint hummus, avocado, piquillo pepper, salad and relish all squeezed into a sourdough bun. Served with sides such as the halloumi bites with a lovely kiwifruit & habanero hot sauce, house onion rings, Skinny Fries, Garlic Mayo, Blue Cheese Mayo, smoked Chilli mayo and Chilli Salsa makes for a tasty bite.
Beautiful burgers, brilliant beers and super sides served by a friendly team in a lovely location what is not to like.
