*The Cardiff branch of Burger and Lobster has closed*
Burger and Lobster has always offered exactly that, burgers and lobster, but in their Cardiff restaurant they have recently launched a new menu expanding their range whilst still sticking to their roots. They invited me to come try some of the new menu items which I was more than happy to do!
I ordered their new Welsh lamb burger to be served medium with sweet potato fries on the side. I’d say my burger was more on the rare side but I like my meat rare so I was more than happy. I went with an earl grey, watermelon and lemon ice tea to drink as it was a warm day so something refreshing was very welcome.
I really enjoyed my meal and was impressed with the chick lobster, brisket roll, cowboy caviar and blooming onion that I got to have a taste of from my friend’s meals. I adored my ice tea and their alcoholic South Carolina ice tea goes down very easily too!
For dessert I went with a passionfruit creme brûlée. I adore creme brûlée and this was a good one. The sugar was nice and hard on top without tasting burnt. It was the perfect end to such an indulgent meal.
I was really impressed with the new expanded menu and I think the prices reflect the Cardiff food scene perfectly (with the lamb burger being £9). I also think it’s great they are now sourcing some of their meat from Wales. I’m already planning to go back to have the lamb burger again and try the lobster mac and cheese side with some South Carolina ice tea to drink.
