I was fortunate to be invited to go to Stax Diner last week. Stax has recently opened in Kingly Court off Carnaby Street and was opened by Bea Vo. Bea has opened this place to be an all day place. I went as I was tempted by the Stax Burger.
Very interesting take on the onion rings here. The light batter and onion formed like a flower break in your mouth with a gentle crisp. It looks delightful and is recommended for about 2 people which I think is ideal. Works as a side and as a starter.
This was an interesting burger to say the list. The options are a normal cheeseburger, a bacon burger, a bacon and cheese burger, a caramelised onion burger. OR just get the whole lot in the 'Big Stax' burger. So I did.
The burger was nice, but the strange topping of glazed beef bacon just didn't do it for me. I like my bacon but beef bacon and especially its texture just didn't add anything to a beef burger. Besides that the burger went down quickly and was a messy affair, just not my favourite.
I will be back to Stax Diner to try their signature chicken and waffles, the atmosphere was friendly and jovial and staff really helpful too. I think for first time burgers always stick to the simple option; that is the true test of a burger. Thanks Bea.
