The Old Biscuit Mill, revered for its Saturday epicurean delights, will soon be known for more than its market. Redemption, a burger joint with a twist, has arrived – find it right next to the lift heading up to The Pot Luck Club.
The space boasts cool urban decor with a hint of retro flair – the vinyl player is a nice touch as they only play records for background music. Sit on low chairs at colourful tables as you take in the cosy, yet vibrant setting. The owners and manager are as hospitable as they come, always encouraging you to ‘crush’ another CBC, Darling Slow or Bone Crusher craft beer.
Now lets get down to the food.
Choose from veggie, chicken, beef or ostrich (this changes from time to time). I tried The Low Flyer chicken burger. Moist, succulent, grilled organic Cajun Chicken breast with creamy mozzarella, Peppadew, basil pesto and homemade pineapple chutney. Enjoy it with French fries and garlic and basil-pesto mayo paired with a CBC Amber Weiss – at R90, it’s a steal.
Next time, I’ll be trying The Homegrown veggie burger – a lemon and herb mushroom creation served on a bed of rocket, balsamic reduction, homemade roasted tomato relish, grilled halloumi cheese and a rustic olive tapenade.
