Lately I've been kinda obsessed with burgers. I feel like it kinda came out of nowhere, but for the past couple of weeks I've just been eating a lot of burgers. I recently popped down to Manchester, to pay a visit to Grill on the Alley, who have teamed up with Thomas Cook to produce 4 American inspired limited edition burgers, to celebrate Thomas Cook's new Stateside routes.
These went on the menu on the 4th of July, for one month only, so you've still got a bit of time to pop down and try them for yourself.
The offerings in question are as follows:
NY Deli Burger: Classic with pastrami, pickle and Lancashire cheese
Boston Burger: With prawns and crayfish, garlic butter and back bacon
The Miami Burger: Pickled watermelon, pineapple and horseradish coleslaw
The LA Burger: Onion rings, guacamole, chipotle mayo and beer battered pickles
I brought along one of my friends, and we settled down with some cocktails and the menu. I ended up going for the LAX burger, and she ordered a beef burger with bacon. We couldn't decide which starters/sides we wanted, so we opted for the platter to share, which turned out to be an excellent life decision.
Everything we had was absolutely delicious, I was a big fan of the involvement of beer battered pickles, and my friend said I should definitely mention how much she enjoyed her cocktail. They asked us how we wanted our burgers cooked, and we both asked for medium, and received burgers cooked to perfection.
If you do manage to pop down before the end of the month to try any of these, use this link to book to be automatically entered to win a flight out to America yourself, and be sure to tweet a picture of your burgers to @GrillManc and @TCAirlinesUK Twitter accounts, and use the hashtag #TCABurgerTakeover for an extra entry!
I've never actually been to the States before, so winning a flight to Miami or NYC would be amazing! You can read more about the destinations on the Thomas Cook blog.
