My Perfect Birthday Meal at The Handmade Burger Company

When Simon asked where I wanted to go for my birthday, I knew almost immediately that I wanted to try the The Handmade Burger Company in the Trinity Centre. We had seen it previously on a shopping trip and I'd joked to Simon at how he'd be too fussy to go there. But he agreed to give it a try too and so taking to have a nosey on their website, I had a look at the range of burgers they did.
I noticed that they had some social media pages and popped along to their Twitter @HandmadeBurger to, well first of all see what others had been saying about them, and secondly to Tweet them and say that we were coming in. 

At that point they asked if they could book a table for us on my birthday so that we would have a seat reserved and were really lovely to chat to, I couldn't then wait for our night out.

We arrived at the Handmade Burger Co. and was greeted by the assistant manager (for the life of me, I cannot remember his name) and was told that since it was a special occasion and our first visit, we would be served at our table. Choosing what to have was quite hard as they had so much choice but eventually we chose and then sat and had a chat whilst we waited for the food to be cooked. 

I knew that it may be a bit of a wait for our food as not only was it packed full (which I took as a good thing as it means that it must be a popular place!) but everything is also made fresh by hand so I guess it will take a bit longer to get everything done. 

Then the food arrived... WOW!!!

Simon chose the cheese and bacon burger on brioche and I went for sliders which are three smaller burgers, 2 burgers, one with cheese and the other smoky barbecue and then a barbecue chicken one too. We also chose chips as a side order although we probably only needed one portion of these as they were massive. 

They were the most amazing burgers. You know they are good when the fussy hubby exclaims 'this is the best burger I have ever tasted' ! My jaw hit the floor when he said that. This man that usually hates everywhere we eat has just come out with that. Well that confirms how good the food is.

Such juicy succulent burgers on yummy brioche which was sweet but actually complimented the burgers quite well. Fresh salad on the burgers and chunky chips on the side made a fantastic meal. 

I was so stuffed after the burgers that I couldn't manage a pudding which was a shame as they all sounded so lovely and I'm not one to usually pass up a good gooey dessert.

And that was not it, they had also got me a present, 2 lovely spa products from Lemongrass House. I cannot believe that they had got me a present and the items are lovely. A gorgeous mandarin orange shower gel and body cream that smell so lovely. I have actually walked past LemonGrass House and mentioned how lovely their shop smells and am so happy to have received something like this from such a lovely company. 

We were just so shocked that they had gone to all this trouble to make our first visit and my birthday so special. 

Not only was the food amazing but the customer service was impeccable and the atmosphere in there was so nice. I am still so happy that we chose to try the Handmade Burger Company and now cannot wait to go there again and try more burgers from their menu.
