Dip & Flip : Review

New week, new review, this one is for Dip and Flip in Brixton. Now this review was a last minute one, me and my girl were drawling over their IG pictures at church (yes at church, lord forgive us) and checked and saw it was in Brixton where we currently were. So of course our fat girl instinct’s was to go and order their biggest and baddest burgers, so here it is. This restaurant is known for it’s heart warming twist to their juicy burgers, they pour gravy onto them, yes gravy and as strange as it may sound, it really works, it gives the burgers a Sunday roast taste. Warning these flip and dip Burger’s can lead to a heart attack! Flatlay picture of our order: Chicken burger & sides –> £10:20  The chicken fillet was crisp but not dry, this burger was dipped in the gravy, everything in the burger complemented each other, everything was very satisfying to the taste buds. We give this burger 8/10 Bacon double cheeseburger​ with extra cheese & …

Five Guys: Review

There’s no point tackling McDonald’s or Burger King when the new breed of “artisan” burger’s waiting to be devoured. Five guys restaurant is every teen’s version of heaven and with shakes & burgers, its probably most peoples version. The American style restaurant has taken london by storm, with more than 40 restaurants in the UK and more in the pipeline, so lets just say Five guys is le creme de la creme of burgers. So you can see why this review had to happen. Spicy fries vs Salted fries The spicy fries, were not spicy, it tasted more like seasoned fries, because I could taste more seasoning than pepper. It still didn’t knock any points because you could have given me these fries alone and I would have left smiling, so I give these 10/10, and lets just add I ordered small fries and they gave me a bag full of fries (there goes my diet). The non spicy fries just as good, it had just the right amount of crisp, alot of craftsmanship went …
