K to burger basics
burger, served with pesto, mozzarella and rocket and a flat mushroom was added. We also ordered side dishes of flamegrilled vegetables, which included peppers, courgettes and onion rings. Vegetarians are wellcatered for with a range of patties, such as spinach and lentil or spicy vegetable and bean. Desserts are limited – it’s a choice between ice-cream or real-fruit lollies. The staff were prompt and efficient, but then the customer is the one who does the queuing. We returned to the counter for a second time for a tea and coffee, having ordered a Diet Coke and sparkling water with our food. The restaurant lacks any character, but the simple decor – no Americana on the walls, for example – is in keeping with the good old burger in a bun recipe.
