Nothing says Easter like burgers, right?
Aah, burgers. I am a complete burger fiend, so when I heard Byron was opening in my local Camberley I did a little squeal with excitement. Last week Rich and I were lucky enough to be able to go along and see what they have to offer... and we left so full we felt we'd never eat again. The sign of a good meal!
We started by selecting a couple of beers from their pretty extensive craft beer menu - I went for a Camden Hells and Rich for their Byron lager. The Byron lager in particular impressed us both; fruity and delicious. With our beers we nibbled on nachos with cheese, jalapeños and hugely generous helpings of guacamole, sour cream and salsa.
Then for the main event. Alongside my B-Rex burger and Rich's Le Smokey, we filled up on home made skin-on chips, courgette fries and the obligatory mac and cheese. Our waiter helpfully recommended the ranch dressing to accompany our courgette fries which was an excellent shout! Crunchy, deep fried courgette strips dunked in a fresh, creamy sauce - perfection.
Don't worry, I'm coming back to the burgers. Cooked medium-rare (just how I like it), my B-Rex burger included an onion ring, streaky bacon, jalapeños, barbecue sauce... and the rest. Super succulent, flavoursome and punchy. Rich's Le Smokey also didn't fail to deliver - he was particularly bowled over by the crispy fried onions.
God, I'm salivating just thinking about it!
We were really impressed with Camberley's new Byron - the manager was so welcoming and talked through the menu with us, making excellent suggestions. We had a table booked for 7pm and when we arrived just before seven, the restaurant was packed and had a great buzz.
Oh blimey, I almost forgot about pudding! After what felt like a culinary assault on our stomachs, we were fit to burst by this point. After very little persuading on either part, we decided to share a caramel and honeycomb blondie. Like a brownie but made with white chocolate (duhhh) it really was the cherry on the top of the cake.
Byron can be found in The Atrium, Camberley, as well as in forty-nine other UK locations, and more to come! Get yourself down there immediately - you won't be disappointed. A must for all burger lovers.
