Monday 20th January 2014 is said to be the gloomiest, most depressing day of the year 2014.
Not to mention my critical issue fashion assignment was due in that day. BOO!
So let’s do some maths and calculate that as a double gloomy, and double depressing day shall we?
But not to be feared, the day was bearable for one reason, well five…
Five Guys in Covent Garden, that is!
Having opened in the summer of 2013, (I remember it like it was yesterday, I was a fool for not going in when it first opened. I was literally walking with my family to Covent Garden station and I saw Five Guys, but I shamefully admit, I had no idea what it was, I just walked passed…)
Okay sad moment over… Where was I..
Having opened in the summer of 2013, it has gained a great reputation for it’s generous servings and its likeliness to food in the USA.
It’s about time U.K.!
I love Five Guys. Seriously, their burgers are juicy and full of flavour. Their chips, arghh never a bad chip in the pot ok. I also love the way that unlike other restaurants, Five Guys gives you a plain brown bag with your food in it, regardless if you’re eating in or taking away.
I guess it gives it that ‘American Feel’
Plus, I cannot be the only one who loves seeing the oil from their food coming through the brown bag. ITS REAAAL FOOD.
Five Guys also offers complimentary peanuts still in their authentic shells when you enter, simply get a small box, scoop up the peanuts and enjoy!
Now, on this occasion I ordered a normal cheeseburger with these toppings: mayo, tomato sauce, grilled mushrooms, jalapeño peppers, lettuce and bar-b-que sauce..
hey hey hey. don’t judge me yeah, the menu said ALL TOPPINGS FREE.
My burger? My way.
I also had a little Cajun style fries and a bottle of water.
Opening my brown bag, I can see the small pot of fries with a whole heap of fries toppled on top of a my burger wrapped in foil. See FOIL. Anywhere else would wrap it in paper, but foil keeps the juices and it hot hot hot!
All you need to know about my meal was that the burger was juicy, the chips were fluffy and the food got absolutely demolished.
Seriously, typing this has made me consider when is my next date with Five Guys.
