My friends were coming up to London from Bournemouth to see a concert so we arranged to meet for dinner beforehand. Handmade Burger have locations all around the country but only one in London which happens to be in Wembley. As I’m an East London lady I don’t get over to that side of town much so I thought I’d take this opportunity to try them out.
They offer five (count them!) vegan burgers and one veggie burger that can be made vegan.
Their milkshakes can also be made with soya milk and dairy free ice cream which I haven’t seen any other omni restaurants do this so if you know of any let me know!
I chose to have the banana milkshare. I asked for it with soya milk and the server asked if I wanted cream so I asked if the cream was vegan and she said no. I’ve noticed this in coffee shops when you order dairy free milk they’ll still ask if you want dairy cream. What is going on people?!
It was lovely, thick and made with fresh banana but I could only taste the banana when I got a chunk of that otherwise it was very vanilla due to the ice cream. I enjoyed it but would have liked a stronger banana flavour.
I chose the sweet potato and bean burger. The patty was really nice and I loved the mango relish. I had to cut it in half to eat as otherwise I would have got into trouble. I paid for the extra vegan cheese, I’m not sure what brand this is but it didn’t melt and didn’t have any flavour so it wasn’t worth it!
I had rosemary chips to go with it. The salt was in really big grains but apart from that these were tasty chips.
I wouldn’t rush back to Wembley to try HBC again but if you have one in your area it may be worth checking them out.
Have you had Handmade Burger? What did you think? Let me know in the comments below.
