Shrimpy's Burger

Soft shell crab burger, avocado

You might or might not already know that I am just obsessed with food, and there is no denying it. I wouldn't call myself a fabulous cook, but i will say that I know a good burger when I … ahem… bite it. My raves about Meat Liquor got all my friends and acquaintances eating there.

And here I have something different. It is hard to compare it to a regular burger, as it's just simply not.

Ladies and gentlemen, Soft Shell Crab Burger.

After reading a couple of rather negative reviews, I have decided to come and see this place for myslef. I never dine alone, therefore I brought a very fussy french girlie with me. We loved it.

Run by the team behond Bistroteque, Shrimpy's is a tiny new restaurant located in the Kings Cross Filling Station, by the canal. Shame that gorgeous little view can not be enjoyed from the tables outside, but next week a bar is opening next door and those seats will be filled with pre-diners. Find them here.

My gorgeous Frenchie and I ordered a few more things, ya know, just to make sure we don't leave hungry. And hell we didn't! We could hardly finish our food. Indeed, we left 'packed'* and very satisfied.

Camomile Tea Cocktail

Roasted Calamari, Fennel, Tapenade    

Shoestring fries

Humita (Sweetcorn Chowder)  
Very lovely restaurant for a friend's catch up or a 5th date. Very bright and friendly atmosphere and funky decor on the walls create a cheerful atmosphere.

A walk by the canal and girly chats to end the evening. Utterly perfect.
