Our Brooklyn Trip
November 16, 2023
We were lucky enough to hop over the pond on the hunt for NYC’s best burger – you could call it the burger trip of a lifetime. First, we visited Brooklyn Brewery to wash away the jet lag, tasting an array of beers alongside beer-legend, Garrett Oliver, who has been brewmaster at The Brooklyn Brewery since 1994. This set us on a journey to come up with a recipe featuring beer for the ultimate Brooklyn special.
We visited 5… yes 5 burger restaurants in one day (harder work than it sounds). The first stop took us out to White Mana in Jersey City, which has been serving burgers since 1946. Think old school American diner slider burgers priced from as little as $2.
We then walked our way around various burger joints (grateful of the exercise!) in Manhattan and Brooklyn. Shout out to 7th Street Burger, Smashed & Mighties, who are also cooking up some seriously delicious burgers and are well worth a visit.
But the winner and the burger that inspired this month’s special was Gus’ Chophouse in Carroll Gardens, Brooklyn. It’s all about the double onion magic – Gus uses caramelised onions and raw onions, which inspired our Brooklyn beer-braised onions featured in our Brooklyn special. The sweet and bitter slow cooked beer-braised onions and the crunchy, raw white onions are a match made in heaven… or in Brooklyn rather.
So, make our trip worth it and try our Brooklyn inspired burger which includes our Honest beef patty topped with candied bacon, double American cheese, Brooklyn Pilsner beer-braised onions, Dijonnaise, white onion & pickles. Don’t think about it for too long – it’s only available until 27th November.
Our monthly specials change every 4-5 weeks on the first Tuesday of every month, tag us in your Instagram pics and let us know how many you’ve ticked off so far this year.
