Burger Wars Episode XL: Jedi Elliot

I read about Elliot's in one of the now many top ten burgers in London recommendation blogs, and as curious as a cat I couldn't resist going to try it. Conveniently located and source by the Borough Market this cafe is a gem in the area. Nice atmosphere, brick walls, wood stove, modern look, a menu that changes daily, serving breakfast, lunch, and diner from Monday to Saturday, using ingredients available in the market. The burger in question was only served during lunch but I guess the buzz was so big they decided to make it available all day. 

The Place
Lovely Heating Device
The only option is a cheeseburger with fried potatoes, cooked medium rare. 

The Cheeseburger
The verdict, the burger was quite good, excellent flavour of the meat, cooked medium rare, some sautéed onions covered like secret ingredient by the two cheeses they use the Comte and Ogleshield. Nice touch but I wanted more of the cheeses, a little bit more of that couple melt over the patty, or maybe a more aggressive cheese will elevate the burger. The bun was perfect, toasted and then a drizzle of olive oil, just heaven. Potato fries were good, I used the home tomato sauce as a dip. 

The damage, 15 quid for the burger, potato fries, and lemonade. 

The conclusion, excellent burger, definitely one of the best around town, good flavours, and attention to details. I will give them a 9 in my scale. 

One more look at the beauty
Cheese reminds me the Seinfeld episode “The Foundation” 

George: I tell you, Jerry, I'm feeling something. Something I haven't felt in a long time
Jerry: Pride?
George: No, autonomy, complete and total autonomy
Jerry: Well, you're your own boss now
George: I want to go to a tractor pull
Jerry: Go ahead
George: I am staying out all night!
Jerry: Who's stopping you?
George: I want to bite into a big hunk of cheese, just bite into it like it's an apple
Jerry: Whatever
