What’s better than one burger? Two burgers, duuuuh. And better than that? A box of 12 burgers, of course! That’s just what chef Adam Rawson is set to supply with his Bite Me Burger Co pop-up, launching in Holborn in a couple of weeks.
A two-time winner of London’s prestigious Slider Decider competition, Rawson has created a menu that combines well-loved burger classics with some more unusual flavour combinations. For example, the Beef Encounter (aged grilled beef patty, special burger sauce, American cheese, shredded lettuce, pickles) is a tribute to the Big Mac, while The BC (aged beef patty, cream cheese aioli, bacon, Brie, crispy onion) is Rawson’s version of a bacon cheeseburger.
Sharing a space with Cha Chaan Teng on Holborn’s Kingsway, the pop-up restaurant is the brainchild of David Michaels, who first designed the concept in Sydney back in 2007 and is also the author of burger bible The World Is Your Burger: A Cultural History (to be published in the UK on June 5). Bite Me Burger co. will open with a soft launch offering 50%-off food and shakes on June 5-7, with diners able to claim the offer by signing up at www.bitemeburgerco.com The restaurant will then fully launch on Thursday June 8.
