SquareMeal Review of
Meatliquor King's Cross
‘Come hungry, leave wobbly’ is the motto at Meatliquor, a 21st-century burger joint with edgy urban swagger. “Reliably crowded, dark and loud” sums up the vibe, and devotees don’t care one jot about the long queues. Culinary inspiration comes from the red-blooded southern states of the USA, and the menu’s core appeal resides in its purist butter-grilled cheeseburger, mustardy ‘Dead Hippie’ double-decker, house chilli dogs and extravagantly pimped sides – including the now-famous deep-fried pickles with blue cheese dip, complete with paper towels for wiping those sticky fingers. Otherwise, specials such as char-grilled prawns ring the changes. To drink, all manner of gin- and whisky-based cocktails served in jars keep customers fuelled up as a table-shaking blues soundtrack rocks the joint.
