The Victoria, is a theatre pub, on John Bright Street in Birmingham City Centre and if legend has it, has its own ghost. Dating back to the 19th Century it’s stood the test of time and has loads of character, and offers a considerable drinks selection from cocktails to hand picked wines and cask ales.
The other week I was invited by Vicky from Bitters N’ Twisted who own The Victoria to attend a burger tasting to help launch their 2 burgers for £10 deal which is available on a Monday evening every week.
As a vegetarian and a keen veggie burger fan this was a cool opportunity to revisit one of my favourite burgers of the last year. See previous review below.
Though in this case the veggie burger had changed. Could it be better?
The Vegetarian burger is called Can’t be beat and consists of salted courgette, beetroot, carrot, rolled oat patty with lettuce, tomato, sliced avocado, and Humous, served in a buttermilk bun, handcut chips, and cirrus set slaw.
The Animal friendly burger was lovely the flavours of the beetroot, courgette came strongly through with the patty setting the mixture into a top veggie burger. With a good bun holding it all together.
With the added refreshing addition of the Humous and the avocado which was sat on the burger , it felt more luxurious than the usual Halloumi style burger veggies seem to get quite often.
The added coriander slaw was delicious and had a good coriander flavour and again was different to the norm.
As a burger the can’t be beat was a lovely vegetarian burger and with a good crispy handcut chip made for a satisfying meal which in its 2 for £10! format is a bargain. You can add triple cooked chips to your order for £1 extra.
Ruth also enjoyed the veggie burger and felt it was an improvement on the previous recipe.
I also enjoyed a pint of Purity longhorn which complimented the burger well.
The two burgers for £10 deal on a Monday evening is excellent value and The Victoria is a pub with a lot of character and atmosphere. The Veggie Burger was well made and with a good bun kept its shape well and with some interesting flavours was an improvement on the one I previously reviewed.
Thanks to Vicky, And the Victoria for inviting me to the burger tasting evening. The burgers were complimentary though all drinks were paid for by ourselves. All opinions are my own and honest as always.
It was also good to see and chat to Joe from independent Birmingham who seemed to enjoy his meat burgers too.
The Victoria is on the IB card. All independent Birmingham card holders receive 20% off food all week.
The Victoria also offer 2 pizzas for £12 on a Tuesday evening: #2fortuesday with a delicious sounding squash the goat veggie pizza. Which I’m looking forward to trying.
