Armed with the Timeout 2-4-1 burger offer, we visited Hache yesterday lunchtime on our own quest for the best burger in town. Hache is a little more upmarket in contrast to the likes of GBK, Ultimate Burger, The Fine Burger Company etc. and somewhere you can linger if you want to. The restaurant was pretty empty (thanks to the Marathon?) but we didn't mind as it was quiet and relaxed although I should imagine this place can get quite busy.
The burger menu is probably the most extensive I've come across; divided into beef, lamb, venison, chicken, fish and vegetarian, each section has a number of variations. For the carb conscious, there are a few salads or you can opt out of having a bun but where's the fun in that?
Not being in a ‘meaty’ mood, I chose the Jerk Chicken, a nicely seasoned chicken breast served with mango chutney while the other half went with a cheese and bacon burger and a side of frites. The food arrived promptly, was piping hot (I hate it when you get tepid fries) and it was all very good; the burgers themselves are certainly up there as some of the best I've had to eat recently. The ciabatta buns were fresh but not too doughy, an important factor when you're trying to eat a burger in a relatively civilised fashion and we were only sorry not to have any room left for dessert. A slice of banoffee pie did sail past us to another table and it looked pretty good as did the potato wedges which we also spied across the room.
If you want a good burger and like to sit and enjoy your meal at leisure then Hache is your best bet. It is a touch more expensive than several of the other chains but the presentation and overall package (lengthy menu, home-made mayo, really good burger buns) certainly gives this place an edge. Frankly, anywhere that gives you complimentary smarties with the bill gets my vote.
