Boy’s night

Last night Timol left me at home all alone. I had prior knowledge of this so I visited a local store for some supplies before arriving home. I was out of Famous Grouse so had to make do with red wine. Here is what went down.

The best & biggest beef burger in Durban

This morning, before our motorcycle ride, I said to my friend “I really feel like a big juicy & tasty beef burger”.

We went looking and I can now share a quick bit of valuable information about where to find the best & biggest beef burger in Durban (B&BBB).

I really fell compelled to share as I nearly fell off my chair today (shouting “wow!” a number of times) when the waitress brought the B&BBB (value for money) to our table.

It had colour, it was fresh (meat & other ingredients) and it tasted superb (I didn’t even have to add the usual chilli sauce). My friend and a couple of other patrons were hugely impressed with what they saw. The word “whopper” was used.

After eating the B&BBB, I went home for a lovely 2 hour power-nap; content knowing that breakfast lunch and dinner were now all taken care of in one foul swoop.

Although I only have a number of low quality Blackberry photos to get my point across; I believe they are of sufficient quality for you to be the judge.

I have photos of two major & well-known food outlets (Wimpy & Spur whose online photos look so lovely), as well as a contender from North Durban in Umhlanga: The George.

The George doesn’t seem to have a nice website with photos, but I’m sure the owner will soon let me know if there is one.

Not included in the “best & biggest beef burger in Durban” competition are Mc Donalds, Steers, Beach Bums (a very strong contender, if not 2nd place) and a few other joints.

You be the judge and be sure to let me know your verdict!

Mimmos “Making life good!”

Now those of you that know me well, know that I like a really hearty breakfast at a really cheap price.

Spur (especially Southway Mall) has always been a front-runner. Their Westwood branch (also in Durban) improved vastly after slight prompting.

So obviously Timol and I got hugely excited when we came across Mimmos in Umhlanga.

A lovely Sunday morning ride on the motorbike or in the Ford Ranger with Roscoe the dog on the back.

We have been there a good few times and the waitrons are always so accommodating (Roscoe get fed bits of bacon fat).

The hot-deal breakfasts have been yummy and yes.. good value for money. Good parking outside too!

Look what you get for R24.90; one of the best deals in town

And for under R20.00

 

Buffet costs more if you want to pig-out

 

 

For the sweet tooth

 

 

Up close and decadent

 

Coffee (now this is where it slips a little)

 

The coffee could have been warmer.

The breakfast below.. (well the eggs speak for themselves: should have been soft)

 

The chicken sausages were “rubber” (taste & feel) and I tried to bounce a section of one to show Timol, who does not want to return to Mimmos.

Other things that morning were not firing a 100% but we won’t go there.

Now this blog is for celebrating good food and not having a go at anyone.

So I will forward this post to Mimmos and I am sure (just like Spur WW); they will up their game so they can continue drawing customers like Timol and I (who previously had at least three top drawer breakfasts in a row).

Good luck Mimmos!

We will visit once more and hope all is back to normal (please – I have seen you draw more customers than your neighboring “competitors”).

You are the only ones who can challenge Spur.

PS – I don’t go to W…Y and all the other spots who have failed to offer value for money in the breakfast department.
