Like the East Street Tap boozer it calls home, Burger Kult’s wares are lively, juicy and dripping with good humour. Pick from a revolving roster of towering confections – from the classic Back-Flip Truck (maple bacon, melted cheese and mustard) to the Peanut Brittle Nymph with smashed roast peanuts, paprika mayo and shredded butter leaf.
The blue-haired barlady (astutely) steered us towards Swamp Thing: a moist mountain of ground chuck beef, crayfish tails, ‘swamp sauce’ and red chill jam, on brioche natch. Fries, served in a plastic tumbler, are rich and appropriately fatty. Pair with a pint and devour. A friendly, informal bite in the heart of town.
