The 20oz Tinseltown (Non) Challenge Burger 1

After my defeat at the steak challenge, I decided to take on an easier challenge.  Tinseltown is a chain of American themed restaurants.  They have several restaurants in London (Bayswater, Farringdon, Gants Hill, Gt Portland St, Hampstead). They also have restaurants in Birmingham, Leicester and Watford.

The challenges are as follows.

Challenge Burgers
Homemade NY style 5oz 100% beef char grilled and served in a toasted sesame bun with crispy lettuce, sliced tomato, chopped onion and Tinseltown sauce.
Served with 2 regular sides and a free dip.
The Empire State Challenge Burger
20oz (4xburgers) of homemade 100% beef stacked with 3 slices of Swiss Cheese, gherkins and Smokey BBQ Sauce. £12.99
The Towering Inferno Challenge Burger
20oz (4xburgers) of homemade 100% beef stacked with 2 slices of Swiss Cheese, double Jalapeno Peppers and Fiery Piri Piri Sauce. £12.99

For the sides you get a choice from plain fries, salad, mashed potato, vegetables and bbq beans.

I went to the one in Bayswater. Its within easy walking distance from Paddington where I was the previous night for the steak challenge.

It wasn’t the biggest of burgers. I had chips and vegetables as sides. Not really much to say apart from it was a nice burger but no challenge at all.

The funny thing is that I ended up in the Tinseltown in Farringdon later that day. I had the The Towering Inferno Challenge Burger. That place is open to 4am in the morning and I’d happen to have been drinking around the corner. I can’t remember whether it was hot or not but I demolished it.

For people seeking out a challenging burger to eat, I’d look elsewhere. The burgers themselves are really nice and the milkshakes are gorgeous too. If you want a nice meal at a reasonable price, its the place to go but if you are looking for a challenge in London, then try the Terry Tucker Burger Challenge or Goldiehops and the 3 Grizzly Bears Challenge.
