Goodman, City

Sitting in a heavyweight #3 spot on the youngandfoodishburgertop10, i'd been super excited for some time about visiting this place. The city venue is pretty much an upmarket steak & fine wine place, the clientele middle aged banker types, chatting over large slabs of pink steak. 
I love having only one burger on a menu, it makes life oh so simple. The burgers arrived and looked fairly unassuming. Chips were decent and included in the £13. Extra burger toppings are also included in the price which impressed one of our party greatly. 

The burger here is very simple, a brioche bun, a meat patty, cheese, a slice of lettuce, tomato and pickle. A classic recipe and just what i like. What sets this burger apart is the "Oh my god this is incredible" juicy meatiness of the patty. I could have eaten three of these in a row. They felt so light and delicious. I'm guessing the patty isn't very firmly pressed, yet it holds together perfectly and its certainly not squeezed to death on the griddle. Its full of delicious fatty juiciness. Perfectly pink inside and caramelised around the edges.
Without doubt a very memorable burger. I look forward to checking out the Mayfair venue, as the city branch was a little on the stuffy side for my liking. 
In the corner of the room they have a see through refrigerator where you can salivate over some tasty looking cuts of meat. Without hesitation a five star rating.
