One LA's biggest burger chains, The Counter Custom Burgers, has opened its doors in Glasgow. Here's the lowdown....
You can sample a custom-made burger of your choice from 11am today at The Quay
In a nutshell, whatever you'd like. Counter Burgers are made by you thanks to a checklist of over 100 ingredients meaning a range of different combinations are available. Apparently over a million, so get creative!
The base of the burger comes from 100% responsibly raised and handled angus beef, natural chicken, turkey and a special veggie/vegan burger, all grilled to order.
From this, diners can choose from over 80+ ingredients: from 14 gourmet cheeses, 23 unique sauces, 34 toppings and 4 kinds of greens, which will be put together in one of six different buns (all freshly baked).
The indecisive among us can relax as there's also a range of signature burgers available as well as sandwiches.
Pair your creation with side of sweet potato or shoestring fires and onion rings. Drinks will include handmade ice cream shakes, floats, craft beers and wine, cocktails, mocktails and ‘spiked shakes’, including Frozen Mexican Hot Chocolate, Red Velvet or Minted. Or in true The Counter style you can ‘create your own’ shake.
Sunday – Thursday 11am -10pm and Friday and Saturday 11am – 11pm
The restaurant which can seat up to 100 covers is designed to reflect the brand’s LA roots. With the focal point of course being the counter, booth style seating, USB ports and plug points available at all seats, and an open serving hatch offering a ‘live’ experience into the kitchen.
The restaurant is industrial in decor with bold neon-style signage and graphics, while a wall-long façade featuring Santa Monica Beach pays homage to The Counter’s LA roots.
