Once it was vegan
Lockdown ruined it for us
Then came Chubby Burgers
My Haiku to introduce you to a new burger place in Enfield.
For more context, the corner opposite Enfield Town station was home to a Vegan fast food shop/restaurant. I had food there once (it was okay). Unfortunately, I think it became a casualty of the pandemic.
A little while later, the shop had new branding and my dreams of a new burger joint were realised.
Welcome to Chubby gourmet Burgers.
As per my usual test for a first time burger, I went for the cheeseburger.
As a lockdown treat, I went for a double, with some halloumi fries too.
How was it? Does Enfield have a go to Burger joint.
Well... for a beef burger, No. Sorry.
I can only describe this burger as 'Pub Like'. The patty had the taste and consistency of a frozen burger. I can fully understand why businesses do this, but when you describe yourself as 'Gourmet', then a frozen beef burger is not something you should do.
The accompaniments, of caramelised onion, tomato, lettuce, cheese, were good. However, the beef, especially the fact that I went double, let the whole side down. I believe, fresh patties with the rest of the package would elevate Chubby's to a really good local joint.
I hope this review is not seen as being harsh, but rather being useful. I have seen that their lamb burger has had good reviews. Therefore, a second try is needed.
I want Chubby to do well and for locals it already seems like a popular spot. I think post lockdown, if open late night, I can see myself going for a quick burger. See you soon and good luck Chubby Burgers.
GOOD TIMES: Good looking branded burger.
WATCH OUT: Overcooked patty, probably cooked from frozen.
OMG: Location works for me, that is it for now.
