Another weekend in Scarborough and we thought we would try somewhere new to eat.  I asked for ideas on Twitter and Yay Coffee suggested Cowshed for burgers.  We just managed to get an early evening table as it was booked up for the rest of the night.  A good sign that this is somewhere people want to eat.   Cowshed has a bit of a street food look about it,  almost as if they have parked their gourmet burger van next to a hipster coffee shop (by the way this is a good thing.)  minimalist decor and a small but perfectly formed menu. 

This is not a place for the health conscious, it’s about really tasty ‘fast’ food but using locally sourced high quality ingredients.   Mr Frivolitea and I both went for the burgers.  I had the ‘it ain’t easy being cheesy’, 2 beef patties, choice of cheese  (I chose Gruyere), beef tomato and shed sauce (described before it arrived as a McDonald’s style burger sauce which was a spot on description, seriously tasty sauce). Mr Frivolitea had the ‘Bacon BBQ’, 2 beef patties, ‘trotters’ smoked streaky bacon, tangy BBQ sauce, American cheese.  I chose to upgrade to he sweet potato fries as my side. Oh my these were the best sweet potato fries I have ever had. The seasoning was something else! It had Chinese five spice and a salt and pepper seasoning. Definitely trying that at home.  Mr Frivolitea also chose to get some deep fried gherkins to go with his burger which he said were very moreish.

This place is brilliant value with great quality food. We had mains, sides, drinks and coffee for £30.  It’s definitely worth a visit, I mean who doesn’t want really good burger and fries?!
