Burger Wars Episode XLII: Ramsay’s Bread

Since I started the vendetta to find a decent burger in London I wanted to try Gordon Ramsay’s version. The place I was thinking was Maze Grill, but for one reason or another and despite it is on my original list I haven’t visited the place. But a week ago I went to his new venture Bread Street Kitchen. A large warehouse space with industrial décor for a relax dining experience. 

Ramsay's new venture
The place
Went with a colleague, sat downstairs by the bar, quite quickly we were on to business. Tamarind chicken wings, crispy pig’s head, and the Bread Street short rib burger. 

The wings were quite nice, good sweet and Asian flavours, the tamarind with spring onions and coriander gave a nice balance. The crispy pig’s head, nice battered, with a touch of breadcrumbs, the green chilli mayo was nice, I even used it to dip my chips. 

Crispy pig's head
The Bread Street short rib burger comes with Monterrey Jack cheese, and a tomato ketchup. 

Ramsay's BSK burger
The verdict, nice burger, thick patty, really thick, perfectly cooked, the tomato sauce with a nice sweet touch spread on the bun, the short rib flavour was great, the Jack was nice, melted covering the patty, not too overpowering, probably they could go for a stronger cheese as the meat flavour is quite strong. The bun was almost collapsing but held until the end despite the juices. Chips were nice, perfectly cooked crispy outside soft inside. 

The damage, 15 quid for the burger, fries, and a coke 

The conclusion, another great burger, really nice place, is good to see a relax but still quite nice and high standards Gordon Ramsay’s restaurant. The patty flavour was the lead actor of the play, stole the show. A strong 9 in my scale, this is a serious burger Mr Ramsay. 

Burger Time
Bread reminds me the Seinfeld episode “The Rye” 

George: What is this? The marble rye? 
Estelle: We forgot to bring it in 
Frank: No, I brought it in. They never put it out 
George: You stole the bread? 
Frank: What do you mean stole? It's my bread. They didn't eat it. Why should I leave it there? 
George: Because we brought it for them! 
Frank: Apparently, it wasn't good enough for them to serve 
Estelle: People take buses to get that rye 
George: Maybe they forgot to put it out! Frank: Aw, they didn't forget to put it out! It's deliberate! Deliberate, I tell you!
