I’m BEYOND flippin’ excited that the @beyondmeat patty is finding its way into more restaurants 🍔 (Invite)
The latest spot to welcome it is brand new 100% vegan @flipside_food in Farringdon 🙌🏼 This place is what would happen if Pret merged with Five Guys & Chipotle, then went vegan 🌱 How cool that we have places like this opening!
My friend and I tucked into:
🍔 Two Flipside Quarter Pounders with @beyondmeat patties, pickles, grilled onions, little gem lettuce, mustard, ”cheese”, ketchup, mayo & a soft glazed bun
🍔 The ‘Who Ya Callin’’ with a grilled “chicken” patty with pickle, aioli, little gem lettuce & a soft glazed bun
🍗 Buffalo Tenders with hot sauce ,
🌯 Chipotle burrito with lightly roasted “chicken”, 5 grain mix, grilled pepper & jalapeño salsa, pinto beans, mixed leaves, chipotle mayo & chipotle sauce
🧀 Macaroni cheese with “bacon” bits .
🍟 Air-baked fries
🥤A thick malty shake
The Quarter pounder was everything you want in a little fast food burg 👏🏼 The proportions were perfect so you could taste that divine patty but also the sweetness from the tomato & gherks, the crunch of the lettuce and the creamy cheese 🧀
The mac wasn’t especially similar to real mac but it was alright although I’d probably pass on the “bacon” bits next time as they were a bit tough and didn’t add anything 🥓 .
The “chicken” didn’t do it for me. I liked the idea of the burger resembling a McChicken but the “chicken” lacked flavour and was dry (same with the wings) 😞
The burrito had beautiful flavours but I didn’t like the use of a 5 grain mix instead of rice and the “chicken” was overcooked & tough. All in all, I’d go back for the quarter pounder, mac & fries and I’d like to try the salads & sandwiches as I’ve heard great things ♥️
The lovely team were kind enough to invite me and gave me this food on a complimentary basis. No payment was received and all opinions, as always, are honest and my own.
