I have been meaning to finish this post off for a while now and have never really got round to it. It was intended as one of the original posts taken from trips this summer but new reviews soon started flowing in. As it was a most enjoyable evening of indulgence I thought it deserved to be finished and shown the light of day!
This is a short but seriously sick (good version of the word) review of the amazing MEATLiquor! This is probably one of the first experiences I had of the burger revolution that is going on in London at the moment. It is also one of the many memorable meals we have enjoyed that got the We The Food Snobs cogs turning.
The name is simple, all one word, MEATLiquor, why you ask? Cause that’s what they do best! Big doses of tender juicy meat and a long list of hard hitting cocktails! It’s not for the faint hearted though. As you walk inside there is very much a feel that you have walked on to a Quentin Tarantino set. With butcher’s pvc curtains, an emphasis on the colour red, grungey graffiti, cool music and dark mood lighting, I was just waiting for Mr. White and the boys to walk in at any moment, guns spraying!
My foodie companion for the evening was my sister as she was treating me to a birthday dinner and then a performance of the The Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain! Celebrations therefore required some cocktails! The menu made interesting reading, with no punches being pulled. I went for the “Donkey Punch – Finlandia vodka, fresh lime juice & ginger beer, built over rock ice with an absinthe rinse.” and Kate chose the “Time Of The Month – Gin shaken with red wine, fresh strawberries, lemon juice & a dash of fresh pineapple juice, served long over crushed ice!” Regardless of their names they were absolutely lush and packed a fair old alcoholic punch, especially the absinthe kick!
For our meal we ordered Dead Hippie burgers, a plate of their infamous onion rings and a whole load of cheesey fries. How good does it all look! No point trying to count calories, this order was off the scale for sure.
Like all great burgers, you needed about 10 napkins and a whole load of finger licking to try and control the mess these boys made. The juices from the two patties and the dead hippie burger sauce made a great combination and the cheese was perfectly melted. Unfortunately no brioche bun if I remember rightly, which at the time wouldn’t have made a difference but after my encounters with this heaven sent creation, I may think differently next time. The onion rings lived up to their hype as they were ginormous and literally the best onion rings I have ever tasted! The cheesey fires simply added to the indulgence with a huge mound of molten cheese, making this one filthy dirty experience!
After devouring our order we rounded off the meal by searching the cocktail menu again and ordering some more liquid headaches! These were so good, I definitely need to try to recreate some of these myself!
If you find yourself in London and are craving some meat and booze and fancy a really cool experience, then head on over to MEATLiquor! Choose your time wisely though as this place is always packed and they don’t take bookings! Trust me, you will be repeating the very same words as Jules Winnfield in no time, “Mmmm, that IS a tasty burger!”
