Honest Burger

Among the many things that I hate is when people don’t mean what they say.

When things are “literally” this way but they are speaking in metaphors, I am tempted to ask them to stop lying to me.

When things are “obviously” a certain way, then that word is redundant if things are as plain as day.

However, I find the most annoying phrase to be “to tell the truth”.  As does that mean you were lying to me all that time before?

In another riveting diversion, I remember that saying that a picture counts for a thousand words.  Trying to take this in mind, I have finally decided to upgrade my phone (as the old one is on its last legs, wheezing and flickering in and out of life) and one of the specifications I was looking for was passable photography capabilities. The below is what came out and it was actually not bad.

This is the tweaked photo straight off my pixel 6.

This is the photo then tweaked by lightroom.  A heavier bit of tweaking on my desktop photo tweaking machine definitely resulted in something more appetizing!

In any case, not to lose track of the food commentary (this is quiet eating after all), this was the Tribute, honest beef, bacon, American cheese, burger sauce, French’s mustard, pickles, onions and lettuce with homemade rosemary salted chips.  First the good, it was a decent serving of fries.  Next, the not so good.  The burger was kind of small, the American cheese (what is that stuff?) was rather tasteless and I hunted in vain for the promised mustard.  The patty was ok but nothing special.  The fries were sadly salty even if liberally salted.  Couldn’t really taste the rosemary though.

So be truthful, in my humble and honest opinion, could have been much worse, the upside was tantalizingly in reach but it was fairly average.  Seems that post covid, the menu has also undergone a fairly substantial bump up. All things considered, I honestly, truthfully and for the betterment of humanity should stop here.  So let’s leave it at that.


A quiet eating 5/10.

Lunch (a burger and fries) was GBP13 excluding drinks and service.
