thirteenth Aspect – Burgers/Vegan – Nottingham
thirteenth Aspect have been round some time, predominantly servicing the folks of Nottingham via avenue meals popups and deliveries. They’ve owned this website on Fort Boulevard for some months to service their supply providing, not too long ago opening it as a completely fledged restaurant. Apparently its probably not close to some other bars or eating places and a unit that’s struggled in different guises earlier than. I’ve greater hopes for thirteenth Aspect, them already having established robust following from increase their model over the previous couple of years. The restaurant itself is about up with a considerably sparse welcoming space and many of the tables tucked additional again. The partitions are adorned with fairly hanging artworks, a classy and up to date house. The menu follows their successes and retains it easy with a handful of burgers, a number of sides in addition to the, now obligatory, possibility of some extra small plates too.
It was one in all their first providers so I forgave a little bit slowness from the kitchen though what truly irked me extra was their flagship “factor of smoke” burger. It seems the half on their Instagram, a cloche crammed with smoke is eliminated tableside… a little bit of theatre sure however whenever you’re in intently packed tables it turns into a fairly overwhelming expertise each couple of minutes in case you get a waft within the mistaken path. I’ll put my grumpy outdated man routine to 1 aspect and say when meals did seem it was effectively introduced, with minimalist, trendy plates making each the burger and sides stand out on their matt black background. The buffalo burger itself (£11) was actually quite good. The “hen” patty a pleasant texture however most significantly the sauce had luggage of flavour, I’m a fan of preserving it easy and a handful of slaw and some pickles let me wanting nothing extra. Nice for a vegan burger, excellent for any burger (in Nottingham no less than). Corn ribs (£4.50) had a little bit smoked paprika for an additional depth of flavour and have been effectively cooked and candy, a pleasant foil to the wealthy buffalo sauce. I had additionally opted for loaded shawarma fries for £7.95. These felt a bit dear vs others I’ve had round Nottingham however the high quality was good. Their shawarma itself was effectively flavoured however didn’t really feel prefer it went significantly effectively right here, the salsa, aioli and chilli sauce wanted a softer factor than the fairly giant shawarma items. I’d advocate simply getting their regular fries for £3.50 until you’re feeling significantly hungry or decadent!
I actually loved the meals at thirteenth Aspect, they’ve refined their providing effectively and never fallen into the lure of providing an enormous menu or issues past their means. The setup was polished however felt a little bit missing in soul, the employees effectively drilled and suited however not but discovered their skill to be extra relaxed. It compares pretty favourably on value to the likes of Bohns and Fats Hippo however a little bit greater than the cheaper choices like Ohannes though actually it might solely be in comparison with the previous. It ought to be a spot for vegans and/or burger lovers, on the proof of my go to it might be onerous for anybody to not benefit from the providing right here.
