Burgers (in my opinion) could make for a good treat every now and then especially when its done right but finding the burger to give you that experience could be quite daunting especially when you’re in this part of the world (Port Harcourt, Nigeria). I recall an experience I had one of those moments I had a burger craving a couple of years ago and when I purchased one, I was literally looking for the steak in the bloody beef burger because it was just too tiny…you can’t even imagine how disappointing that was!!
Fast-forward to a few years later, a friend of mine recommended I look up an Instagram account of a new place in Port Harcourt (South 66) and on going through their feed, their flagship burger had me sold totally. Of course, I had to go check it out myself, so I could have a personal experience.
On getting there, what was striking was the aesthetics of the outfit. It was quite different from what I’m used to but in a good way. The way wood-work was infused into the entire design décor was done tastefully and was quite refreshing. Getting down to the burger, guys, to be very honest with you, I was jaw-dropped when I was served my burger. This is by far the largest burger I’ve set my eyes on in my entire life, I shit you not!!! Just as you can see in the pictures, they provide you a fork and knife to help you out which was very thoughtful of them because trust me, your first concern would be wondering how to get that huge burger in your mouth!! No jokes, this burger is huge and if you love meat as much as I do, you’re in for a treat. About how it tastes, I wish you guys could taste it through this post but sorry, you must go there yourself LOL!
Accompanying the burger was a basket of chips. Personally, I’m not big on chips to be honest but trying chips from South 66, I’d say it was amazingly different. The chips were done to perfection and it was seasoned in a way I’ve never had it before. Delicious! Staff were friendly and always willing to help if I had any needs which is something to always look out for really.
I know lately I’ve been an advocate for healthy/clean eating but even if you share this lifestyle choice, this amazing burger from South 66 is one I’d certainly recommend for your “cheat meal”. Yes, it’s that good. You really must try it out yourself and you can thank me later.
