Last Friday after work I headed for burgers to Foxlow Soho, a seasonal British restaurant in the heart of central London. Guess how much I paid for a burger, fries and a glass of wine? Just £13! I know, I know.
I’ve recently become a bit of a voucher lady. As we are moving to Brighton, I’m saving everything I can for the house move, but at the same time want to see as many people before I leave the city (I’m making it sound so dramatic – it’s not like I’m going that far..!). My solution has been vouchers, especially Time Out’s ones as they choose really good venues for really good prices. I’ve done a bottomless brunch in Fulham before with a Time Out voucher, as well as a cabaret experience with cocktails, and both have been such bargains and really great experiences.
My deal for Foxlow Soho was £13 for a burger, fries and a drink (you could choose between a soft drink, wine and beer). As for the burgers, there’s four to choose from out of which one of them was vegetarian.
I, of course, went for the veggie burger, which was a triple cheese burger with paneer, mozzarella and St Swithin’s cheese topped with a green chilli relish and fresh herbs. It was such a different vegetarian burger from anything I’ve ever tried before and I really loved it! I’ve never had paneer on a burger before but it really worked, and I loved the green chilli relish so much too.
The burger came with a generous side of fries which I loved – they were crispy and thin (but still soft inside) and salted just right. The fries came with little pots of mayonnaise and ketchup, and I also got some tabasco because apparently, I can never eat a meal without adding a bit of chilli sauce to it..!
The yummy fries!
My three cheese burger was so yummy and the mint leaves added such a lovely flavour to it. I would have never thought to add mint to a burger, but it really worked!
The decor at Foxlow Soho was a mix of classic and quirky: the walls were made out of blue, blush pink and white tiles, and the lamps, as well as other little accents, were made of copper. My favourite bit, though, was the bar stand which gave me a New York vibe with its high chairs and a quirky Facebook-related quip on a big light board.
Overall I enjoyed my experience in Foxlow, and would love to head back to try more of their main menu too: especially the sweet potato dumplings and the chilli mac and cheese have caught my eye! They also do brunch which I eyed on over at Erica’s blog – definitely adding that to my list!
