Haché Burgers – Steak le Triomphe des Truffes

Burgertown

It’s a known fact that adding french words makes anything sound more intellectual. “Le London”. “La joyeux restaurant”. I mean, I could call this blog something as simple as “Le Blog” and I bet I would double my audience (which, as of now, is still just my mom and a whole bunch of Russians, for no apparent reason).

Ciabatta makes anything fancier

But when someone does it on a burger, well, they better mean business. Because you don’t call a burger something as sophisticated sounding as Steak le Triomphe des Truffes, unless it is, indeed, a very sophisticated burger. Thankfully, in the case of Haché Burgers, the sophistication is guaranteed.

Touch the truffles!

This fancy schmancy burger comes with truffled Gruyère cheese and glaze (I’ve already expressed my adulation to truffle burgers before). It is a burger for the seasoned burger lover. The one who wants to get his hands dirty, but dirty with expensive sounding ingredients. I wouldn’t be surprised if Haché released a burger with caviar one of these days.

Truffles from above

But until then, truffles will do. Plus, you can order it with ciabatta bread. Fancier than imaginable.

 

Slimy? That truffled glaze is as slippery as they come.

Satisfying? Thankfully, the glaze is fingerlickingly good, and so is this outstanding burger.

Meat and Shake – Truffle Shuffle Burger

Burgertown, Sponsored

My parents always said “everything gets mixed in the stomach anyways” when we tried to keep veggies as far away from the “good stuff” as we could. That very same feeling rings now more true than ever as Meat & Shake has made me appreciate the art that is having a Burger with a Milkshake as your drink. Dessert and main, combined.

Perfect for downing burgers

No alcohol in the menu? No problem. You get deliciously creamy milkshakes, like the Oreo Milkshake I got early on, to help you bring the upcoming burger down your digestive system. I struggled not to drink it straight away. Go ahead and try to stop drinking a milkshake halfway. It’s the hardest thing I’ve ever done.

Partners in crime

But thankfully, I did save some, as it would certainly be needed once the mighty Truffle Shuffle came along. A beauty of a burger if I say so myself, it sports truffle mayo, some great meat, gruyere cheese, and even more truffle action with a honey & onion truffle glaze. Before you start going “Truffle? Sounds like a poshburger to me”, you need to understand that truffles on a burger are a magical thing, that just needs to be tried to be understood. They just give it a special taste. Add some really nicely spiced fries, and it’s a perfect meal.

Truffles, glorious truffles

This is a great example of how a burger doesn’t have to be massive to be tasty, and how there are some great burgers to be had when venturing into “The Wasteland”, AKA “after zone 2 in London”. You just need to know where to look. And if you are looking, Meat & Shake is a good place to start. Specially if you want a milkshake with that piece of meat.

You should see how messy the other side is!

 

Slimy? So runny and gooey it puts bigger burgers to shame.

Satisfying? The Truffle Shuffle will most certainly shuffle your truffle. That’s meant to be a good thing!
