Every month, Mixtape Couture will be showcasing and shining a light on the talent that can be found in Sheffield. From bands to fashion brands, shops to restaurants, events to exhibitions, if it’s in Sheffield and it’s worth you knowing about then I will be letting you know. Whether you are a Sheffield resident yourself or are planning a visit one day [which I highly recommend] then hopefully this feature will help you to know where to visit, what to do and what’s going on in the Steel City.
Some of you may be taking part in your January detoxes but I’m here with a mouthwatering Sheffield Showcase feature to completely break all your diets and I am definitely not sorry for it. The Twisted Burger Co. is one of the highlights of Sheffield’s culinary scene with its extensive menu full of everything any burger lover could ever require. From chicken to beef and plenty for the vegetarians as well, there is something for all tastes on offer, especially now that they have recently added a vegan burger to their menu.
Twisted Burger can be found at two of the best haunts in Sheffield: The Harley in the city centre and The Riverside down by Kelham Island and The Wicker. Both pubs which are hugely popular already in Sheffield with their great drinks range and passion for live music have become even more of a staple on the best places to visit scene with the addition of Twisted Burger.
Having started out back in 2011 at The Harley, they have been serving quality burgers for years earning the Best Casual Dining award at the EatSheffield awards in 2013. The Harley itself has become a real hub for foodies in Sheffield with their long opening hours, with their Twisted Burger Breakfast Club being served from 7:30am on weekdays which features breakfast burgers to huge breakfasts, through to their late night diner from Sunday-Wednesday where they serve up until 4am.
They opened their doors and started serving at The Riverside last summer and it has already become a huge success at that out of town location too. The thing that makes Twisted Burger so special though is its collaborations and its special offers. A couple of years ago, Twisted Burger teamed up with Drop Dead Clothing to create the Double Stuffed Falaf-hell Burger. It is not only a great bringing together of two great Sheffield brands but the burger itself is huge, delicious and by far one of the most best veggie burgers to be found in our fair city.
The rest of the menu features 9 burgers altogether, with at least 1 or 2 veggie options, all of which never skimp on the filling with cheese, mushrooms, homemade patties, fresh ingredients and delicious sauces on every single one. For the meat eaters there is plenty of choice whether you are after a simple chicken burger with a decent sauce or a double beef patty with bacon/sausage, cheese and all the trimmings. They take the best ingredients from all over whether it by chorizo or mac and cheese to make their burgers a truly unique experience with the food itself becoming quite the spectacle to withhold.
If all that is not enough then there are huge American style shakes, plenty of extras for your burger from hashbrowns to cheese and a selection of sauces to choose from and don’t even get started on the many side orders they have from a range of slaws to at least 5 different types of fries, I recommend upgrading to sweet potato fries they are heavenly!
If you are looking for some showstopping and truly great burgers made from wonderful locally sourced ingredients then look no further than Twisted Burger. Their need to push the boundaries with their menu is a great thing for the culinary scene in Sheffield and the fact that they hole up in some of the best independent music venues just makes them even more special. Whether you are after something off their main menu, simple or elaborate, or you’re after one of their new monthly specials which are limited edition to only 15 serves a day[!], they really do deliver. A true highlight of Sheffield cuisine.
Twisted Burger can be found at The Harley, 334 Glossop Road, Sheffield, S10 2HW and at The Riverside, 1 Mowbray Street, Sheffield, S3 8EN.
