Meatcure is one of the newer establishments of the brilliant burger restaurants that have come to Leicester. With a well received Market Harborough location, you can imagine the local chatter around the new indie eatery. A few month since the launch back in September, I returned to try the latest burger specials and their famous hardshakes.
We went for a Smokey and the Bandit (£9.50) and Royale with Cheese (£8.75) with extra bacon (+50p) - of course the cheeseburger made famous by Vincent and Jules in Pulp Fiction. Alongside this we tried the beetroot slaw and spare ribs in mother sauce, with all sides at £3. The burgers come with a generous portion of fries too, which is excellent value for money. You really don't need any sides, unless you're greedy like me.
The burgers themselves were delicious and surprisingly juicy for saying they were cooked through, and not slightly pink like some gourmet burgers are. The patty was well seasoned and for me, the crispy bacon and oozing cheese were a delight. My boyfriend's was, as the name suggests, a more smoked version of mine, with some hella awesome mother sauce. Veggies will be pleased to know that there a two vegetarian options (The Italian Job and Field of Dreams) whilst seafood fans will enjoy Fish Called Wanda. You're loving the film references, aren't you? Me too.
So onto my new favourite dessert option; milkshake. Since I wasn't driving, it was the perfect excuse to try one of their alcoholic hardshakes. I'm not exactly sure on price as the drinks menu isn't online but I went for The Dirty White - a mix of Oreo, amaretto and vanilla milkshake, whilst my boyfriend had classic banana. Alcoholic dessert through a straw? Um, yes please!
