I usually try to visit burger places straight away but it's not always so easy. It was Bobo Social's first birthday this past week and this offered me the opportunity to go for the first time.
With rare breed beef, this small restaurant aims to please its customers with a new dining experience. They do this with their experimental club, where they invite diners to invent their own burger creation and if it's good enough it will be on the menu. This sounds like a great idea but is only on Mondays and Saturdays and is £35.
How new was the experience for me? I mean it was different a bit, but experimental, not really for me. As a caveat, this visit was a special one due to their £1 offer and therefore was restricted to the burger and a quick bite for me. Sherwin and I got a seat outside which was nice, until it started raining but by then we had quickly devoured our burgers and chips.
The burger was good and i did enjoy it, however, the wow factor was not there for me. You could taste that rare breed quality in the meat, but the juicy flavours you would expect from that did not materialise. The chips were tasty and any time is see that there is beef dripping on chips i get really excited. The extra seasoning from the fat is amazing and doesn't really need any dips or sauces with it.
I will go back, because i want to try the full dining in Bobo experience. As important as the burger is and the food, the atmosphere and dining is vital to enjoying a restaurant and burger event (having a burger is now an event). Also the visit to their experimental night i feel is a must, at £35 it is not too expensive and I am sure you would have a good time. If there is anything i must try, it is to make my own burger.
Who is with me?
