Beer: Butcombe Brewery - Haka
Each Thursday is @meateasyexeter night in The ODDFellows. On hand is a special burger menu with some interestingly titled Burgers, and by far this one had the best name, so it had to be the one for me.
It is an 8oz beef pattie with sausage, bacon and cheese and mushroom brought together in (on this occasion) a Brioche bun. The whole meal came with a really stonking fresh side salad, whips (cross between wedge and chip) and some 'slaw.
So far, since starting this blog, this has been the best cooked burger which I have had. Perfectly done with a bit of pink in the middle to give it a perfect meaty taste. Accompanied by one of The ODDfellows real ales, a pint of Butcombe Brewery's Haka
Some others on the menu that got my fancy included The BC (Bun, 8 0z local beef pattie, pulled pork, BBQ sauce) 'You've Pulled' (Bun, 8 0z local beef pattie, pulled pork, BBQ sauce) and The Pineapple Express VI (Bun, 8 0z local beef pattie, pineapple ring, onion ring, cheese) to name but some.
The beef patties are made in house with steak mince sourced from West Devon Meats in Okehampton.
