It’s a pretty simple formula at Parlour Burger, Sean Connolly’s offshoot of The Morrison and right next door to it. The burgers, each a tenner, a few sides, order at the bar and grab a number, then take a seat. He apparently decided to do this after noticing they were selling large volumes of The Morrison Burger a week, though I’m sure the much talked of success of Chur Burger – who has a similar formula – helped.
The menu is short and sweet – five burgers, four sides .
Pictured in order, we tried the chicken, fish and black widow burger (there is some kind of charcoal added to the bun to make it black). You’ll notice straight away that they aren’t big burgers, slightly bigger than a slider, so if you’re a big eater or very hungry one probably won’t do the trick. I liked the chicken and quinoa that I tried, but found the ceasar mayo too salty. My dining companions gave theirs the thumbs up.
The fries, I thought, were incredibly small for $8 – this photo is before we’d eaten any, they weren’t half finished (have a look at the photo on their website! Ours is not the heaped plate depicted!). And they were nothing special, so give them a miss.
So the verdict – it is “ok”. The burgers aren’t going to blow your mind, but for a quick, unfussy meal, it’s not bad, and I’d come here before Bridge Street Garage.
