The burger they entered for the burger week contest is the Lamb Royal ($10). It came with either fries or a salad, and I chose the salad option, since SexyNapkins ordered fries =P. First off, I must say the burger was ginormous. I couldn't fit it in my mouth! The deep fried eggplant added another layer to the whole burger, but it was a great addition! The lamb was so fragrant and lamby I loved it. The eggplant added some crisp and juice to make it less dry, without being overwhelming with the flavor. The bun itself was quite chewy (which I really like) and moist (not in a bad way). The salad itself was pretty good too, pieces were a bit large to fit nicely, would've been better if they had chopped it into smaller pieces =) It was smothered in a zesty vinaigrette.

SexyNapkins ordered their Morrissey Burger ($13) and it too, was HUGE! It looked super juicy and she said it was delicious. A bit more messy than mines because of the sauces, but worth it =) The fries were crispy and packed full of potatoey goodness. Nothing super exceptional, but they were made well.

I felt the ambiance and feel of the pub was very cozy and a great place for a relaxing evening of girl talk ;) Waitresses were very friendly, and I felt really comfortable there (even though I was messily eating a burger).

So adorable how she drew hearts around our totals <3 May try to get a foodie event to happen here! -- Sorry for the bad quality of pics, it was sort of dark in there! However, it didn't give me a dirty feeling as do many dimly lit establishments, which is a pro! =D
