Fancy some food for thought? Then satisfy that craving by biting into MEATliquor’s succulent and juicy Brain Burger.
Yes friend, you read that correctly. The brainchild (get it?) of Fergus Henderson, acclaimed chef and co-founder of St. John restaurant, the dish is in honour of the upcoming Parkinson’s Awareness Month this June. Up to 127,000 people suffer from Parkinson’s disease in the UK, meaning that it affects roughly one in 500 individuals. Henderson was diagnosed with the condition in 1998, and is launching the Brain Burger to help raise funds and awareness of this degenerative disorder of the nervous system.
For £30, you hungry and adventurous readers can savour the flavour of sliced calf-brain sauteed in panko breadcrumbs, lathered with sauce gribiche and homemade mayonnaise, and finally, hugged between a potato and onion bun from the St. John Bakery. Everything comes with fries, but the good times don’t stop there. Diners will also be rewarded with an apron specially designed by Henderson.
All of the proceeds from this limited edition menu will support research on Parkinson’s disease. To help make history, and get an unconventional dose of your daily B12 (a vitamin that aids in increasing mental functions), start booking your ticket now. 15 burgers a day will be offered at MEATliquor W1, MEATliquor N1, and MEATmission throughout the whole of June.
