Black + Blue – Borough Market

We were out having drinks around Borough Market last night and wanted somewhere nice and cosy to eat some hearty, winter-warming food (it was really chilly outside).

The huge red cow on the roof of Black & Blue won us over. Yep a roof-top cow lured us in. Oh and the steaks and gourmet burgers on the menu appealed too.

Inside Black & Blue, Borough Market

The restaurant was packed, with a 40 minute wait for a table (not surprising on a Friday night in the City) which we spent in the busy bar with a bottle of rioja @ £26.00, reading the menu.

Burger with bacon + cheese + fries

K was slightly tempted to order the foie gras starter. But after a conversation about how much we like geese and don’t like the idea of force-feeding – or any form of cruelty to – animals, he soon went off the idea.

We both ordered a classic hamburger prepared by Black + Blue’s own butchers (Jefferies of Kingston) made with prime Scottish beef, grilled medium rare with crispy bacon and melted cheese, and served with fries @ £14.00

It was a nice enough burger with bog-standard fries (nothing out of the ordinary but it ‘hit the spot’ and filled us).
