BURG: A FOOD REVIEW

Remember when I asked if you wanted me to tell you about my visit to Burg on IG Stories but most of you voted for here instead? Well, here it is.

The first time I heard of burg was when Atim (@afrolems) popped in during a lunch break and put it on her IG stories. The first thing I said to her was OMG, why do they look like they borrowed Shake Shack's vibes? Like, that was all I was seeing. But if they taste as good as, then I'm good. 

The first time I went to Burg, I was going to see my friend after, so I ordered 2 Burg OG burgers, 2 Spike fries and 2 Oreo Nut Milkshakes for the both of us and a Pink Lemonade for me. Then I saw the bill. N23,500. My heart was beating so fast. N23,500 for junk?

Let me tell you the truth. Burg is PRICEY! See break down below:

Burg OG Double: N4,500 x 2 = N9,000
Oreo Nut Milkshake: N3,000 x 2 = N6,000
Pink Lemonade: N2,500 
Spike Fries: N3,000 x 2 = N6,000 

I ended up taking out the fries (like who eats a burger sans fries? Who???), so I paid N17,500 which is still a whole lot! I guess you can do a Single instead of Double Burg OG and pay N3,500 or N4,000 (I forget) and do the lemonade @ N2,500 so your bill comes to about N6,000/N6,500. I still call that pricey and I know that someone looking for an affordable treat won't want to spend that much for that little variety. 

I can forgive the burger prices, but why is a milkshake N3,000? And a regular cup of lemonade N2,500? Why are fries N3,000? I can't get over those. 








Space: Burg is located at the beginning of Isaac John street, Ikea GRA, before you get into the traffic areas...that's the best thing about its location. It's a nice spot to chill as well, with an outdoor area both in front and behind (secret garden, which is more like a bar for shisha and drinks).

Food: The burger is good, I admit. 6.5/10 good. I've had the burger 2 more times and the bun remains soooooooo soft! The Oreo Nut milkshake is maaaad! 10/10 mad. The lemonade was good too.

The staff at Burg are really courteous and helpful! They also let me pay via transfer (no idea where my Debit card is) which is a +++ in my books.

I go back to Burg pretty much for the milkshake; it's kinda on my way to the airport (if you take a very slight detour and pass GRA instead of MBA) and because of my recent trips I've had reason to be in the area, so I stop by. I won't go to Burg often because I don't want to be broke or fat (read: fatter than I already am), but it's worth a visit if you've never been.

Have you been to Burg? What else is nice to try? Will you be eating here soon? Let me know.
