Patty&Bun on Ship St Brighton. We go to see if Brighton’s newest burger venue can compete with the other main players. Does the Smokey Robinson burger land in our top 10? This was our first trip to Patty&Bun and we hadn’t seen or read any reviews so we had no idea what to expect.
We pay Brighton Burger a visit to see what gourmet gold they have to offer. After looking through the menu there was no doubt in our minds that the Smokestack was the best choice for us. Wagyu beef topped with smoked pork, smoked cheddar & onion rings, sat on raspberry jam, onions and chilli peanut spread.
We had visited Smashburger long before we threw our health and body weight to the wind, so we were eager to see if it would live up to what we remember. Turns out what we remember was about right. Smashburger is better than most chains but like most chains sadly can’t quite compete with independent gourmet burgers.
We visit 7Bone Burger Co. in Hove on opening day to see what all the fuss is about. We left with full stomachs having been served the best beef patties we have had since we started writing our reviews. The triple-b blew most of the burgers we have tried out of the water and you should go there and see why for yourselves.
We finally decided to include some chicken burgers on our leaderboard so we headed to The Bok Shop which we spotted from the windows of The East Street Tap. We wanted to know if chicken could really compare to beef in gourmet burgers, so surely a restaurant that specialises in chicken would be a great place to find out.
We set out for Seven Stars not really knowing much about Croustillant D and they only had one fixed burger on their menu; the 8oz flame grilled burger. The meal we received exceeded our expectations. We do have a few gripes but the burger and sides as a whole might be one of the best lunches in brighton under £11.
