Burger Wars Episode XLIV: Duke’s Travels

I’m back in London and back to the Duke of Wellington, this is my third time to try to have the burger, starting to become masochism, but I’m sure it has to be good. Same place nothing has significantly change since my first visit. Staff a little bit more friendly I have to say. 

Finally got there for Saturday brunch, listening Duke’s Travels from Genesis, how convenient, “I’m the one who guided you this far”, ordered Moules Mariniere for starter which were nice, I think they are some sort of best seller there, previous time they were sold out and I saw them in practically every table. Moules were nicely cooked, good seasoning, good flavour, not a surprise all I’ve had so far has been quite tasty. 

Then the beef burger with barbecue pulled pork, smoked applewood cheese, coleslaw, pickles, and frites. 

Burger time
Duke's creation
The verdict, the burger flavour was incredible, awesome, the melted cheese superb, and the pulled pork was glorious, it looked like a master piece, but the bun was my issue, it collapse after the first bite, basically disintegrated in my hands, probably from the juices, shame on you bunny. The frites were nice, I love the fact that they gave me a home made mayo, for me that is attention to details 101. 

The damage, 17 quid for the burger and a pint. 

The conclusion, we almost have a winner here, flavour is there, perfectly cooked, add on are great, melted cheese checked, pulled pork checked, but the crumbling bun, if they fix the bun situation, that my friends is in my top 10 definitely. I will give them a 8 because that’s a serious burger. 

Duke and burger reminds me the Seinfeld episode “The Frogger” 

Elaine: Guess what I ate 
George: An ostrich burger 
Elaine: No. A $29,000 piece of cake. Peterman got it at The Duke Of Windsor auction. It was the most romantic thing I've ever eaten 
Jerry: How'd it taste? 
Elaine: A little stale
