A few weeks ago we were invited to try out Burger and Lobsters new extended menu. We are both massive fans and have been a few times. You can read about our first visit here. After listening to feed back Burger and Lobster Cardiff have expanded they’re menu to include a Lamb Burger, Children’s Burger, Brisket Roll and different versions of their Lobster Roll as well as still doing the original options. They’ve also added a great new selection of sides and we couldn’t wait to get stuck in. We were treated to try out the new meals!
They’ve also added more drinks. We didn’t taste the proper cocktails cocktails but L did order and undercurrent as she was driving. The bar staff really do know how to make a great cocktail!
First up we shared a blooming onion. If we’re honest we ordered it out of curiosty but we’re glad we did as it was so tasty! It’s an onion deep fried served with an amazing garlic dip!
We also took L’s brother with us and he tried the brisket roll. I’m a huge brisket fan but couldn’t resist the lobster so he let us try some. The meat is soft and full of flavour like you’d expect from brisket and a great addition to the menu.
For mains I ordered the California Lobster Roll. L and I shared our mains just because it’s what we do. This was amazing, I love the lobster rolls as they come on the most amazing brioche roll. This also has avocado in. It’s so light and fresh tasting!
L went for the Lamb burger. This comes with amazing relish and like they’re original burgers can be cooked how you like it. We went for medium rare and it was great. I love how the burgers are jam packed with flavour and salad and sauce that compliment it.
For sides we opted for chucky cheesy chips, definitely add cheese if you try these as it’s definitely worth it!
The lobster mac and cheese which was perfect. I love mac and cheese and the lobster adds a great flavour to it.
Lastly we had sweet potato fries as who can really resist them. These were great, crispy and not soggy as sweet potato fries can sometimes be.
As if pigging out on all that food wasn’t enough we sampled the new desserts too. Below is the bakewell tart. Something I would never pick but L’s brother tried it and it was delicious. The fresh raspberries and mint add great flavour to it.
I was the pig that ordered the Eton mess even though it’s meant as a sharing dessert. I’m a huge Eton mess fan and this didn’t disappoint, chewy meringue, ice cream, berry sauce and fresh mint and raspberries. It was amazing and I’d definitely order it again.
L went for brownie that was also amazing, chocolatey and slightly gooey!!
Me and my huge dessert!!
We loved trying out the new food and it’s great to see the company listening to what customers want. The new additions are certainly tasty but definitely make the decisions of what to order harder as so far we love it all. The only thing I’d suggest would be the addition of a vegetarian option as I’d love to take my parents here!
Love L and M
