If you’ve kept up with our food eating adventures, you’ll know that we’re big fans of Burger & Lobster. So when we heard of their new branch in West India Quay, we had to go and check it out.
It’s not just about the new premises and the swanky outdoor bar by the waters. This Burger & Lobster are pioneers for the future of the chain!
When seated, we were handed a menu. Yes that’s right, a menu! Apparently, Burger & Lobster has received an overwhelming amount of queries from customers asking why there isn’t a menu. To be honest, there isn’t really a need for a menu if you’re only serving 3 items.
But at this new branch in West India Quay, there’s more than 3 items to choose from! Our friendly waiter explained the new additions and also the specials unique to this branch.
With a new menu, also comes new prices. Since Burger & Lobster was founded in 2011, they’ve been known as the place to have a lobster meal at a bargain price of £20 and the price has stayed the same ever since. However, fast forward to 2016, the cost of the lobster has gone up and that also means Burger & Lobster need to keep up with the times too. Whilst the lobster options are more expensive, the burgers are cheaper. You can also get smaller versions of the burger or lobster meal. So lots of variety indeed!
To mark the special occasion, we opted for the Canary Wharf Combo.
This consists of a small 6oz burger (the usual size is 10oz), small lobster, fries, pickle and their signature lemon butter sauce.
The Mayfair burger – despite this not being our first time to Burger & Lobster, it was our first time having the burger! The verdict? Let’s just say we’ll stick to the lobster in future! It wasn’t bad to eat, it just didn’t wow us.
The Pounder lobster – a small lobster but with enough meat to get you by. Cooked perfectly as usual – nuff said!
Just having the burger and lobster alone is enough to make you feel content. But after having the chips, you’ll feel really satisfied! Fried and then simply seasoned with chips – but should probably be called fries considering their size.
If you’re in the area, then we’d definitely recommend you try out this new Burger & Lobster. Especially now that it’s summer and we have longer days! Unlike their other locations, this Burger & Lobster takes reservations. So there really is no excuse to not come. The outdoor seating area is really cool and there’s even sharing cocktails available. The waterside view is also perfect for a relaxing night out. We’re going to give them 3.5 yums, what would you give? 🙂
