Byron fail to explain why they cannot cook a rare burger
Last week, in an interview, a London based restaurateur cited Byron – the chain that claims to create “proper hamburgers” – as one of his favourites in spite of the fact that they now refuse to cook burgers rare.
In response to a tweet that asked: “Why does anyone still reference @byronhamburgers as great? They won’t even cook them rare. I like almost raw, hardly cooked. #justsaying”, the firm answered:
“Hi Matthew – unfortunately red tape means we can’t serve rare hamburgers. We’re all about choice, but it’s not always up to us”.
I subsequently sent two replies:
“Why can other restaurants serve rare hamburgers then?”
“And why can you can not use meat of a suitable quality to serve rare?”
That Byron failed to answer either speaks volumes. It is most disappointing that this initially fine – and accommodating – restaurant chain has sunk to such a low. The Steeple Times, therefore, urges burger loving readers to avoid it and to henceforth support smaller restaurants (who are all happy to cook burgers to a customer’s specification and are confident enough in their quality to proudly serve them rare).
