I had lunch in the Gourmet Burger Kitchen in Temple Bar this weekend, and got a very tasty burger indeed. They have a very extensive menu, and most burgers are around the €10 mark. Mine was a hangover-friendly Cajun burger
What was good:
The burger was really good quality, as were the condiments that were on it. Mine had an interesting and nicely hot Cajun relish.
The service was very good.
What was bad:
They charge you extra for chips. I know this is common practice with gourmet burger restaurants, but I still think it’s a bit of a swizz. The chips in the Gourmet Burger Kitchen were nice, but they weren’t hand-cut or skin on or any of the usual tricks that fancy burger places use to fool you into paying €4 for about two potatoes.
My meal came in at around €16 for a burger, chips and a large coke…do you think that’s reasonable? Are gourmet burgers generally too expensive?
