Cut & Grind Burgers has recently opened near Kings Cross station (about a ten minute walk) and as a burger lover I was keen to check them out after seeing some impressive Instagram posts!
Cut & Grind is a modern and spacious restaurant, it’s actually really big. You can see the big cuts of beef hanging in the chillers which shows exactly what’s going into your burgers. We liked the music and the staff were friendly and chatty, recommending their favourite menu items and twisting our arms to order extra food!
Wow! We had some epic burgers. I went for the Vegan, which was so so tasty. It had miso glazed aubergine, sesame slaw, sweet pickles and spiced ketchup. Not only was it great to see a vegan burger on a meaty menu, but you can tell how much effort has been put in to make it a really tasty burger – not just your standard bean burger! I really loved the fiery kick to the ketchup and the aubergine was soft and juicy. It came with triple cooked chips which were tasty and crunchy, and as they’re normally cooked in dripping they have the option to change this to veggie oil which was great.
My friend went for the Juicy House which certainly was juicy! The meat is freshly ground daily – you can choose from the daily combination of juicy or skinny cuts of beef and you can really taste the difference in the quality of the meat. The daily juicy cut was rump, rib and brisket and it made a great combination. The patty was well seasoned and cooked perfectly – with the addition of the maple bacon and pickles it was an awesome burger. The ketchup and pickles are made in house – and you can taste the difference. He was also persuaded to try the halloumi fries which were really something special – I mean you can’t go wrong with deep fried halloumi but the mint yoghurt was a great addition.
Accompanying our delicious food was a delicious Oreo shake – so good!
A great spot for a juicy tasty burger and great veggie and vegan options for your plant based friends! The staff are lovely and you have to try the halloumi fries – they’re to die for!
