Today I love: Squeezed @ Wapping Wharf.
What: Squeezed is a tiny burger joint, which prides its self on creating incredible dirty burgers, well seasoned fries and refreshing lemonade. They source high welfare beef, make their own patties on site, then hadn’t craft all their amazing toppings themselves and squeeze them all in to an epic brioche bun for your delectation.
They make their home in Unit 23 of Cargo, which is a cool little strip of independent shops, restaurants and well-being spaces that is nestled behind the M-Shed on Bristol Harbourside.
Where: Unit 23 Cargo, Museum Street, Wapping Wharf, Bristol, BS1 6WE
Why: The difference between an average burger and a burger that you would sell your family for (I am serious – probably), is that little bit of tender loving care. Alex, the chef and chief burger maker extraordinaire loves his burgers and each bite lets you know that. He worked previously at legendary local venue Magic Roll, before moving over to Rebel Roll, where he perfected the St Werburger – his classic burger.
Each burger combination is carefully thought through, built, tested and re-built better, all with homemade sauces, pickles and hand grown vegetables (Okay, maybe that last one is a lie, but it might as well be true) Then add to that some of Bristol’s finest fries and a wash it down with their homemade lemonades and you are a proper winner! My favourite current order is the Ee Chee Wa Ma, Fries and Classic Lemonade, occasionally backed up with a hoppy, citrusey IPA from next door neighbours Beer Necessities.
How Much: You can get Burger, Fries and Lemonade for just over £10, which in my book is proper good value.
