The American-style burger joint, which currently has five sites across Iceland, is the creation of Icelandic entrepreneur Tomas Tómasson, who has launched nearly 20 restaurants and hotels in his native Iceland, including the Hard Rock Cafe. The menu will be simple; based on a selection of burgers including beef, chicken and vegetarian. Meat will be carefully sourced from the UK, and course ground by hand on site to the recipe Tommi has perfected over several decades in the business. As with all sites in Iceland, burgers will be cooked on an American gas grill to enhance the charcoal flavour, and garnished in the classic diner style with iceberg lettuce, tomatoes, chopped onion and Ketchup. A selection of alternative American classics will also be available, such as the Rib eye steak and Chicken in a honey sauce. Fries, Béarnaise and cocktail sauces plus a selection of interesting soft drinks, complete the offering.
Back-to-basics, with a cardboard menu and paper bag signage, Tomas Tomasson has brought Scandanavia and a rather large portrait of himself to our fine city. The burgers here are chunky, with red onion and lettuce and the fries are skinny with plenty of homemade sauces to choose from. At £9.40 for a cheeseburger, fries and a soda can, the ‘Offer Of The Century’ is aptly named. The steak burger however, is a serious contender so don’t be too quick to jump on the offer wagon! Knowing full well that some of us like gherkins and others prefer gherkouts, Tommi’s has a DIY saucy station so you can fine-tune your burger just how you like it.
