Gourmet Burger Christmas
Classy Christmas Eats at GBK
I'm sure you'll agree that one of the highlights of the festive season is the food. Oh, the food. Just the thought of toasty marshmallows, crispy pigs in blankets and sticky, honeyed carrots makes my mouth water.
As a self-appointed burger afficianado, one of my favourite parts of the Christmas chaos is the competition for the most ludacris Christmas burger. I'm talking foot-high mountains towering with turkey, stuffing and all the trimmings, edible glitter, flashing lights, the works. (I'm looking at you Almost Famous and you, Solita!)
Gourmet Burger Kitchen have only gone and done one better though- an actual edible burger that you can actually eat. This is the creme de la creme of Xmas offerings. Its slick, sheek and streamlined. This is the type of Christmas burger that would wear a velvet smoking jacket and a fez rather than a santa hat and a pair of novelty reindeer antlers.
Behold: The O Christmas Three:
Choose your meaty filling from a trio of delectable options- juicy beef, fancy venison or the Holy Grail of all food- deep fried chicken (I bet you can guess which one I went for). Top that with a hash brown good enough to rival the golden arches, smoked applewood cheese, cabbage, bacon and tarragon mayo and you've got yourself a cracking Christmas offering that doesn't fall in to the tired old trap of style over substance.
Fortunately, the side orders are just as understated and delicious as the main event. I washed down my O Christmas Three Burger with a pot of the world's skinniest skinny fries (honestly, look at them) and an absolute bucket of chocolate milkshake filled with teeny chocolate chips and a swirl of whippy cream. If you're fully in the mood you can get yourself an Eggnog one-tis the season after all!
If you fancy a festive feast with a bit of substance that won't leave you incapacitated then get yourself down to GBK Liverpool One.
Don't forget your fez!
