I’d asked my cousin if he wanted to take a drive down to Alfred’s Kitchen to try some of their burgers on a Sunday afternoon. He was more than happy to make the trip. I’d been to Alfred’s Kitchen once before and had misunderstood the menu. To my understanding, a burger contains a meat pattie with salad, however, Alfred’s menu allows you to design your own burger so if you want meat, ask for the steak. I wasn’t making this mistake again so I ordered steak, bacon and cheese. I also picked up more burgers for both of our parents. After placing an order we joined the already waiting crowd which grew and grew by the minute. It wasn’t a very bright day, but the hot open fire provided a little bit of extra light and atmosphere to the place. Obviously the place is very popular as it’s a bit tricky getting a car parking space but people find a way and come from all around. I haven’t yet tried their famed pea and ham soup, but several people had ordered a serve and sipped on that while in conversation with their friends and family, eagerly awaiting their orders.
After about 25 minutes or so, our ticket number was called out and we finally collected our burgers and headed home. I really enjoyed my burger with each mouthful presenting a different experience. The melted cheese, the slightly toasted and buttery bun, the slight sweetness of the BBQ sauce, the tender slices of steak and the flavour of the bacon all make for a delicious burger. I must admit, while the burger was delicious, I don’t think it was as good as last time. I’m not sure why, but my bacon burger the first time around had far more flavour and taste. Regardless, the wait is worth it. Why else would so many people come and wait?
Alfred’s Kitchen Food Review Summary
Verdict: If you want meat in your burger, order “steak”. Alfred’s Kitchen is nothing fancy from the outside but they draw a crowd and after eating their burgers, you know why. You have the choice from choosing what you want and can design your own burger. The steak, cheese and bacon burger was delicious.
