I always like a bargain, so it was with great excitement I came across a voucher for the new handmade burger restaurant in Nottingham. The restaurant is situated in the recently revamped part of Victoria centre. So I was keen to give it a try
I downloaded my 50% of any vegan burger and I was good to go! All I needed was my meat-eating sister to accompany me
My review is now available on line via the Nottingham Post http://www.nottinghampost.com/Veg-veggie-nutrition-coach-Susan-Hart-Handmade/story-28783210-detail/story.html
We arrived on a Tuesday lunchtime and it was surprising busy, I would even say ‘buzzing’. We were quickly seated and as we were ‘Handmade’ newbies, the server spent some time explaining the menu and talking us through the options.
I had about 6 or 7 vegetarian or vegan burgers to choose from, my sister took slightly longer to make her choice because of the extensive 50 burger menu. A quick trip to the till and we’d ordered a small vegetable & bean burger for me (£4.25) minus the bun but with a mixed salad. My sister ordered a small beef cheese classic (£5,25), again minus the bun and with a salad (the other alternative is a bowl of freshly prepared coleslaw). And we shared a bowl of rosemary salt seasoned chips (£3.45) – recommend by our server
About 15 minutes later the dishes arrived and we weren’t disappointed. My vegan burger was really tasty with a good hit of spice and heat. My sister said her beef burger was one of the best she’s had; very moist and tasty. And the server was right to recommend the rosemary chips they were heavenly, and one portion was definitely enough for two
And that brings me on to why I like this place so much. You pay for what you want not what they want to serve you. All the burgers come with a small salad as standard and that’s it. If you want chips, toppings and other sides you have to pay extra. So it encourages me to really consider how hungry I am and to choose accordingly
However If I was really hungry and wanted the full works of a veggie burger, with extra toppings like cheese and mushrooms, a side salad (with toppings) and two sides it could possibly cost me upwards of £15. But I know I wouldn’t be able to finish it all and I wouldn’t need to eat for the rest of the day. What I had was more than adequate for a lunchtime meal
With my 50% off voucher, courtesy of Veganuary my meal came to under a fiver.
I will certainly be returning to handmade burger Co with or without a voucher!
By the way the voucher is valid until the 29th February, so what’s stopping you?!
