Crafty Burger returns

May 6, 2015

Just a quick heads up about Crafty Burger. As I wrote here last month, chef Chris Ellison and his partner Andrea have joined the business to upgrade the cafe’s daytime offering and run Crafty Burger on a permanent basis from 6-9pm Thursday, Friday and Saturday evenings.

I joined some other bloggers at the launch night and was mightily impressed by the burger. I’ve had quite a few  “better burgers” recently as readers of my Mercury column will know and I’d say for pure meaty taste this shaded it.  I was also impressed by some of the sides, including beautiful little breadcrumbed cubes of pork belly.

I’ll save writing more when I’ve been back for another review visit but it’s definitely good stuff. If you are partial to the patty watch out too for the June launch of Meat Cure on Highcross Street. This will be their second branch and I hope they recreate what was on offer at the first venue in Market Harborough. It’s not easy to prise the masses out of Highcross, but these two should give Byron a run for their money.
