Having a burger with a friend means you can share and try more burgers which is great when you are in a tasty burger joint like MEAT. I was already excited about the first bite because the previous burger I tried was so good
How tasty is the Motherf*#$&r? – 9/10
The cheeseburger was almost as good as the MEAT burger that I tried but there were few things missing or different in the puzzle.
The burger had:
- Beef Patty
- Melted Cheddar
- Red onion
- MEAT Sauce
- Brioche Bun
The beef patty similar to the previous one I tried was bloody amazing. It was well done but was really juicy. It didn’t have the feel of your classic purist style burger. It had plenty of spices in the mix and the cut was fatty enough to have that beef flavour as the centrepiece of the burger
MEAT burgers are a good example of how to put cheese and balance it out. Frequently cheese tends to be overpowering when melted because it is too salty and the other ingredients don’t shine or missing in flavour at all. This wasn’t the case the cheese was in the cheeseburger and it was delicious
The benefit of eating in Bulgaria is that vegetables in burgers are amazing and are full of flavour. Even though it was December the tomato had so much taste and in combination with the smoky mayo, mustard MEAT sauce it was really tasty. One of my critiques is that the sauce wasn’t enough and some of the juices dripped away because the lettuce leaves even though slightly chopped were big and slippery. I do have to admit that the lettuce leaves were the right amount in terms of providing both texture and taste. Onions and pickles provided the acidity but I would have prefered more finely chopped onion because it was too dominant in some bites and not so much in others.
I love the fact that MEAT has its own homemade brioche. It has a great crust, soft on the inside. They toast it well. It is never soggy and the bread isn’t too much but just right!
Burger joint venue and overall experience? – 7/10
This is a great burger joint, especially in Bulgaria. Good, simple and classic burger recipes. Great fries and a very good selection of beers and other drinks.
Quirkiness level of the experience? – 3/10
Nothing quirky about the place. Just classic recipes done very well.
