Yeah! Burger, The Star of Kings

"Wow!" i hear you say, "Now that's a tasty looking burger!". This is the double patty offering from not-that-newish popup YEAH! Burger in The Star of Kings boozer right over the road from KERB, a five min stroll up the road from Kings Cross Station. 
The pub has a quirky and grimey vibe, its fun and attracts a pretty cool young mixed crowd of folks. It strikes me as a good spot to get absolutely shit-hammered in on a Thursday night, for example.  
We ordered a selection of their burger offerings, the Yeah! (Aged Beef, Cheddar, Avocado, Sour Cream, Guacamole, Salad, Bacon £9.50) and the O.G. (Aged beef, American cheese, gherkins, Yeah! sauce, salad £7.95) - avoiding the quinoa option for obvious reasons. The buns were soft fresh and tasty, the melted american cheese and pickles great, the lettuce and tomato salad lacked excitement, but the beef patties let the whole package down a little. Not sure if it was a lack of seasoning, slight overcooking or just not amazing quality beef, but the patty was the element that could do with improving. All things considered a decent enough burger in a decent enough venue, but somewhat disappointing as that beef was bland af it could have been a lot better - Just look at the photos for god's sakes! They make some handsome burgers here!
To be fair, we visited Yeah! some months ago, and i can see they have updated their menu since. Perhaps things have improved, i'd be happy to try them again. They also now do a Scotch-egg burger, which looks ridiculous and must be worth trying.
