Square Meal Review of Burger & Shake ?

This Bloomsbury addition to the unstoppable indie burger scene is a low-key joint across from the Brunswick Centre – just a stroll from touristy Russell Square. Wood floors, deep-blue leather booths and rows of wall tiles set the set the scene for a tight menu offering half-a-dozen variations on the burger theme bolstered by pulled pork sandwiches, classic chicken Caesar salad and four sorts of hot dog with fried onions, sauerkraut and dill pickles. There are also the usual sides (stuffed jalapeño ‘poppers’, mac ‘n’ cheese, buffalo wings with blue cheese dip), while sweet hits are confined to slabs of peanut butter cheesecake. As for the ‘shakes’, choose something ‘soft’ (chocolate, salted caramel, strawberry) or go for a ‘hard’ Ovaltini (coconut, rum, Tequila and malted liquor). Speedy service and keen prices are plus points.

    Samphire and Salsify :: Burger & Shake

    So what happens if you’re near Russell Square and you desperately need a burger but don’t want to travel into town and then queue for a few hours? Well, panic not little ones as Burger & Shake has opened and it’s just a short walk from Russell Square tube station. It’s a small, simple but pretty restaurant with booth seating on the right and close packed tables for two on the left. It’s a bit like sitting in a posh pie and mash shop – in a good way. We arrived at about 8ish on a Monday night and got a seat no problemo...
