So one of my greatest sadness's about the move up to Gauteng from Cape Town, was losing my beloved local burger joint, Easy Tiger Burger Bar. I should not have worried! On one of our date nights, Mr Moo surprised me by taking me to a place about 15 mins from home in Clubview, called, Burger Bistro. Oh be still my beating heart is all I can say!!!
The milkshake menu at Burger Bistro is that old school paper number game
(I cannot for the life of me remember the name) with everything from usual vanilla to apple pie, Avo, Candyfloss to pineapple. (Ps: ALWAYS drink the milkshake second to activate and put it in your dessert stomach cause the burger is FILLING and I will bet that if you do it the other way round....you will be taking a doggy bag home, lol)
And then, there are those burgers....and those crunchy, perfectly fried chips! Burger Bistro gets it right with their burgers. Prices are fair, patties are succulent and everything is fresh. We have been twice in the last month and my spare time is spent thinking about their burgers....yeah...they are THAT good. The menu has something for everyone, from a simple plain burger, right to crazy yumminess with Strawberry, balsamic and black pepper jam (winner!!!)
A big part of what makes a visit to the Clubview branch so great is Donald and his team. Yes, being a food blogger does make me more picky with what I look at, but honestly I have no complaints. Donald is a hands on owner who has a fantastic team who very obviously have passion and want the customer to enjoy the visit. The decor is quirky, the venue isn't pretentious, its clean and it all just works really well. In short, I was seriously impressed at both visits (one at night and one for lunch) of both the food as well as the management and running of the place.
So, (and I suggest you don't take my word for it, but try for yourself) go on a date, or just shove a hoodie on and go slum it in the corner while nomming on a burger at one of the Burger Bistro Branches.
I can pretty much promise you that you will see, it's that place where you go, and then on the way home discuss what burger you going to try on the next visit!
Till next time, happy adventures
