As you may know, eating a burger every week is not the healthiest way to blog, but on a rainy Tuesday not more than a day since we last reviewed a burger, we devour a greasy Grubbs Malaysian all in the search for Brighton’s best. You’re welcome.

Having served burgers since 1976, Grubbs was the place to go before the recent surge of gourmet burgers in Brighton. We were interested to see how it compares to the new more expensive options. Me and Ashley had already tried the Grubbs Malaysian before on many a night out but James had to be convinced that peanut butter and chilli could work as a combination.

With only four Grubbs Burger grills in Brighton we are lucky to have one just down the road from our office. This could be seen as a downside however as walking for 10 minutes does not burn of as many calories as we would like. Two grilled beef patties, shredded lettuce, peanut butter and chilli sauce.

Please believe us when we say it’s nicer than it looks in the picture above. On it’s own the burger costs £3.40 as a single, £4.60 as a double and £5.90 for a triple. We opted for the double to take away and we came back to the office to chow-down. The burgers and fries came in paper bags with a few napkins like a lot of fast food places. It’s easy to get into on the go or sitting at home and we only had to wait 5 minutes or so for them to be ready.

The burger itself is greasy and overall tasty if you can get over the crude nature of it’s construction. The grease and chilli sauce soaks into the bun and makes it soggy and hard to hold but when you go to grubbs you shouldn’t expect to keep your fingers clean. Lastly, the burger stays together really well as the peanut butter and chilli sauce combine to make a gooey glue that holds the whole thing together.

We gave the burger a score out of 10 in 5 categories which are: Juiciness, Bun, Flavour, Stability and Value for Money. The flavour combination of chilli and peanut butter is probably its strongest aspect. As for a few things we think could be improved: The patties were a bit overdone and we think they could be a tad thicker, there was not much lettuce so there was not much of a crunch, and the paper bags they come in often gets soaked in grease which then soaks into the bun.

If you don’t like greasy food then perhaps don’t visit grubbs anytime soon, but if you’re with it then then hey this is the burger for you! Best enjoyed after a baker’s dozen pints. We hope that this post can tantalize your taste buds and if you give the burger a try please comment to let us know what you thought about it.
