Burger Battle at LCB Depot Leicester
One of the midlands’ leading food events hits Leicester on Saturday 26 November at the LCB Depot in the heart of the city’s Cultural Quarter. The event, which sees 2 top burger teams competing for your votes, has pulled together a strong lineup for the event with Cured taking on Grays. UK Burger Battle was previously crowned Best Event in the DesignMyNight Awards and has taken many cities by storm. The concept is simple; 1 ticket, 2 burgers and a great party! Which burger wins depends on your votes!
So who are the teams?
Cured @ Brewdog
Cured home cure all their meats in BrewDog beers for maximum flavour. Their burgers are fresh minced and handmade on site and have been receiving top accolades including gaining high marks in a recent newspaper review. Located at Brewdog on Friars Lane, expect one awesome burger from this new outfit.
The Cured Stack: Handmade secret recipe Beef Patty, 14 day cured treacle and barley brisket, Punk IPA maple bacon, Pickles, Swiss Cheese, Brioche Bun.
Based in the cultural quarter, Grays has been bringing fresh, seasonal food to Leicester since 2013. They believe diversity is the spice of life, and no-one deserves the stagnation of choice that has become synonymous with city centre dining. With a daily changing menu based on seasonal local produce the team love to give your pallet a chance to experiment! If you are in the know then you will agree that Grays has one of Leicesters best kept secrets – which is their burger!
The Euro Burger: Grays Handcrafted Beef Patty, Nduja Butter, Smoked Lyonnaise Onion, Camembert, Grays Ketchup, Sun-dried Tomato Crouton, Rocket, Toasted Kaiser Roll
As with all burger battle events – there will be a burger eating challenge! Leicester can welcome competitive food eater Emma Dalton who has been featured on ITVs This Morning and Japanese TV with her food challenges. Just recently the daily mail covered her wedding. She will be attempting to beat her own record set at a previous battle of eating 6 burgers in the shortest time possible.
Parts of the event will be streamed live on Facebook.
Tickets are on sale now, priced at just £15, which includes a specially crafted, top quality burger from each team, entertainment and entry to the after party. The first 50 tickets sold will also receive a free Sailor Jerry cocktail.
