The next time you are in the mood for some giant and delicious burgers, give The Burger Brasserie a thought. Heck no, not just a thought, make sure you drive/walk/crawl/fly/teleport there and give yourself a chance to taste some great burgers!
The Burger Brasserie (we call it TBB, for my convenience ) is a recently opened joint in Andheri. TBB is a brainchild of two friends, both chefs by profession. One can thus imagine the delicious perfection in every preparation.
The place is done up minimally with decent decor and comfortable seating, the focus is, as should be, on the food. The walls are lined with pictures from Marine Drive and Sea Link. There are both, an AC and a non-AC section. TBB is not only burgers, as one might think from the name and has quite a decent spread, with Tacos, Poutine and other grub to offer. Most of the dishes have been prepared with a slight twist, to make them more Indian. However, we were here for burgers and burgers we had!
The partner had done his research and had picked Paneer Tikka Galore, even before the menu was handed to him. I, on the other hand, was clueless as usual. And then I saw Pav Bhaji Burger on the menu. Intrigued, I went for that.
Paneer Tikka Galore – Soft juicy paneer piece, few marinated in coriander based chutney and others, in tikka gravy, topped with lots of grilled onions, capsicum, and chilli mayo, this one is a delight for all paneer lovers.
Pav Bhaji Burger – Soft patty with lip-smacking pav bhaji on top. The onions give the exact Pav Bhaji feel. Mayo and veggies and a soft bun just make a wholesome burger. Not on the spicy side, just perfect. The patty is just delicious, not very juicy but thankfully not totally dry,it just oozes out with the mayo as you bite in. A must try burger here!
The burgers are huge and served with fresh salad dressing. Oh, and the patty (except a select few, probably fish based, if I remember correctly) is not deep fried!
We also tried Lemon and Kokam Iced Tea, both of which were refreshing and flavourful.
We missed out on other burgers ‘coz they were freakin’ huge (nope, I am not complaining, this is me, exclaiming ). But I am soon going here to try more! They have different offers for different days of the week and are planning to come up with sliders as well. All the more variety!
TBB is not very difficult to locate, but Google aunty went a little crazy for some reason when we were trying to get here so I will sort it for you(in case she pulls a crazy one on you as well) – you have to take the left next to the Mercedes showroom (in the lane of Kokilaben Hospital) and then the first right and then keep following the lane. The place is on the right after a few blocks. There is sufficient parking space available in the lane, so that is a plus. They also deliver to quite a few locations, just confirm with the outlet if they can deliver to yours.
Overall Experience : Amazing. Lip-smacking burgers, totally worth the price. Courteous service and a good place to hang out.
The Battle : If you have not fought with the patty and the cheese and the veggies that threaten (and succeed) to ooze out as you bite, you have not enjoyed your burger. And with the burgers here, the size just adds to the fight!
