Psychic Burger: So Hungry I could Eat A…
Looking for a Saturday afternoon hangover cure luncheon of late, my boyf and decided to mosey our way just Eastward of our Stoke Newington base, and try out Kingsland Road’s most deliciously turquoise burger joint: Psychic Burger.
Received with a reassuringly Dalston-esque indifference, who informed us that crab was off (gutted, actually, crispy soft shell crab burger with chipotle mayo is basically heaven in a bun for me) we swiftly ordered 2 Brooklyn Lagers and settled down to peruse their simple, A4 printed menu.
Our attention was immediately grabbed by that day’s “Special Burger”: The Psychic Horse Burger. We went there, people. We went there.
Lean and tasty, and cooked to a perfect medium rare, I would describe it as a cross between a venison, and a beef burger: filling and satisfying but without the greasiness of a classic burger. Served in a soft brioche, with a square of melted american cheese, a slice of tomato, and a couple of lettuce leaves, the meat itself did all the talking.
Both the sides we ordered were noticeably better than your average too - simple fries, crisp, hot and salty; and a spicy, white cabbage slaw dotted with black mustard seeds.
All in all a great meal out, and can’t wait to get back there, not only to try that illusive crab burger, but to have a crack at their impressive cocktail menu, and maybe even sample a starter or two. Sticky chicken wings here I come.
