After spending a few hours at Wandworth Common taking photos of Egyptian geese we were starting to get cold and a burger sounded nice so we went to GBK where they had a Christmas menu including an interesting venison burger. I had to try it
We ordered one Christmas menu (with cajun chicken pieces, the venison burger, the portion of fries and the Christmas mince pie – £10.95) and a Kiwiburger (£8.15) with a side garlic mayo (£1.55). As drinks we had a Macs Gold beer and a glass of redberry smoothie (£2.95).
Cajun chicken pieces
Christmas mince pie
The chicken cajun pieces were great: hot, tasty and crispy. The sour cream and sweet chilli dip was also excellent. Probably not healthy but I am into anything with cream and butter… The venison burger was not good. First, it was not very warm and the spiced redcurrant and crumberry sauce was somewhat weird. It looked like a kind of gelatine on top of the burger. The kiwiburger was much better but here also it could have been warmer. The fries were quite hot and nice. The garlic mayo was not up to the one we used to have during our previous visits. It was less garlicky and on the bitter side. The mince pie was minuscule but very good. It wasn’t too sweet, probably partially because it was that small 😉
Cost and conclusion: it was £27. It was a little disappointing this time compared to our previous experiences there. Hopefully it was just an accident! The service was friendly as usual.
