Review – Handmade Burger Co.

A burger place that can do real gluten free burgers? Yes, you aren’t dreaming.

You can order it with a gluten free bun or without a bun and coleslaw or mixed leaf salad. But remember to mention that you are gluten free, whichever way you order your burger, as the beefy patties contain a non gluten free Worcestershire sauce – but as they make the burgers to order, they’ll do the gluten free one without the sauce.

There’s a wide range of burger choices and the gluten free options are specific to each restaurant, so ask for their gluten free menu when you get there.

I choose the New York Deli burger without the bun – I love coleslaw, so I happily replaced the bun with it, they’re good enough without the buns anyway, you don’t feel like you’re missing anything, and I’m not big on Genuis’s bread and that’s the usual one that restaurants use – and we ordered plain and peri-peri chips to share.

Note; you don’t get the chips with the burger, all you get is the burger on the plate, so don’t forget to order side dishes but the sides are big enough to share.

I love pastrami, so that really hit the spot for me, but the rest of the burger fell a bit flat. The American mustard doesn’t have much flavour and makes the burger taste like it’s missing something. It was so big, I ended up taking half of the burger home and put English mustard on it when I had it for lunch the next day, it was much much better, it really brought out the flavour of the rest of toppings beautiful.

I think my disappointment with the burger is more to do with the burger I chose than the restaurant because my parents loved the burgers – my first trip was there second becuase the restuarant in Manchester isn’t that far from the hospital, where I’ve been spending more time than I appreciate in the past few months – and they couldn’t praise them enough.

I definitely loved the chips and the coleslaw and would return just for them anyway. My slight disappointment with the mustard wouldn’t stop me from returning. If I go back, I’ll be choosing a differnet flavoured burger.

Life’s too short to eat bad food.

Happy Eating!
