JUST SNAPPED @littleswallowchinadoll

Bar Boulud, Knightsbridge

This week has been mental, and expensive. Paying balances on wedding venues categorically blows. Friday night was a welcome relief, and Miss J and I made sure we were at dinner nice and early before everyone else so we could get a thank-feck-its-the-end-of-the-week drink in. And it tasted gooooood.

I've been reading about the burgers at Bar Boulud, so I rounded up the usual suspects and in aid of ensuring no one suffered from food envy, all six of us ordered burgers. I gotta say, if you're going to pay £14 - £20 for a burger, that burger better be pretty amazing. 

Frenchie burger - with confit pork belly, rocket, dijon tomato compote, morbier cheese, peppered bun 

BB burger - with foie gras, red wine braised short ribs, truffle, frisée, horseradish mayonnaise, confit tomato, black onion seed bun

Piggie burger - with BBQ pulled pork, green chilli mayonnaise, bibb lettuce, red cabbage slaw, cheddar bun

They were worth every penny. I'm pretty sure I'll never eat another burger again. I'd feel like I was cheating on the BB. Damn that burger was good.

It was a pretty good start to the weekend.
