Being a food blogger often has its perks and this was definitely one of those occasions - an invite to their launch party. So, with Charlotte in tow (I gave Vicky a night off!) I headed over there a few weeks ago to see what was on the menu.
There was a choice of 3 burgers but there are more on the main menu. We opted for the Farmyard Jam (beef patty, maple onion & bacon jam, crafty sauce and red Leicester) and the Krispie Klucker (buttermilk chicken, spiced rice krispie crumb, slaw and BBQ mayo). Because we're greedy so and so's we also went for both options of pimped fries. Macho (pulled beef, sour cream, cheese, french's mustard & jalapenos) and my ABSOLUTE FAVE Green Nacho (avocado, spring onions, cheese, sour cream, French's mustard & jalapenos), I said to Crafty Chris that the Green Nacho fries were his greatest side triumph and he agreed and even admitted that he'd come up with them when he was drunk. I say buy that man a beer and lets see what else he comes up with...
The burgers were both equally delicious - the buttermilk chicken was so moist but perfectly crispy (or should I say 'krispy' on the outside. The beef patty was pink in the middle and juicy- chuck in some bacon jam and we're talking pure burger porn. In all, these are great burgers cooked to perfection by a passionate team.
Follow Crafty on twitter, instagram and facebook and visit them at St Martin's Coffee House in the centre of Leicester - they are open every thursday, friday and saturday night from 6pm.
