SquareMeal Review of Gourmet Burger Kitchen Brunswick Centre

GBK, founded in South London over 10 years ago, was ahead of the curve in as regards specialising in burgers & Antipodean flavours – which is what differentiates it from the now-plentiful competition. High-profile Kiwi chef Peter Gordon (of Providores & Kopapa fame) has consulted on the brand since the start, & his influence is felt across the menu of burgers & fusion salads, sharing plates & sides. Beef patties on a soft sesame bun are the starting point for most of the burgers, though you will also find bean, buffalo & chicken variants (try them with satay sauce or added Camembert & cranberry). Imports from the land of the long white cloud such as burgers with beetroot, egg & pineapple, alongside bottles of L&P (Lemon & Paeroa), will give cheer to homesick New Zealanders.

My first visit to a GBK six years ago (on the trail of a really good burger) meant making a trip out to West Hampstead. Since then, upmarket burger joints have sprung up everywhere and despite the stiff competition, the GBK seems to maintain its high standards. The Bloomsbury branch, tucked down one of the walkways at the Brunswick Centre, is spacious and relaxed and lacking the frenzy of some of the other locations. The staff were welcoming and drinks arrived promptly. A ‘starter’ of breaded mushrooms was accompanied by a piquant garlic mayo dip. Everyone raved about their respective burgers – the meat was well seasoned, juicy and cooked to perfection, served in fresh buns with just the right amount of relish. The chips were piping hot and generous. My only irritation is how much all these places charge for extra bbq sauce/mayo etc. but with the current 2 for 1 offers, the meal was very reasonable. For a reliably good burger, the GBK is hard to beat.
