As it’s #NationalBurgerDay I just had to post about some of the Burger’s that I haven’t been able to post yet. If you want some burger further inspiration have a look at the ones I’ve already posted with the tag #HFGBurger Here we have the 6oz Frankster Beef Burger from @frankies_burgers in Batley. It tastes as good as it looks the Brioche Bun, coupled with the lettuce, melted cheese & burger sauce all work together in perfect harmony. The patty had a great flavour & has kept me coming back to Frankie’s regularly. You may have to wait for the food and they make it clear on the walls that everything is cooked fresh to order & will take between 25 – 45 minutes. It’s sure worth the wait though as they have consistently served me good food every time I’ve been. Once in Ramadhaan we waited well over a hour which was frustrating but I’d rather wait and be served something cooked to perfection than get rushed food that isn’t right. Frankie’s are also @hmc_uk certified so no worries regarding where everything is sourced from. #HFGBatley #HFGBurger #FrankiesBatley #FrankiesBurgers

The @theclovecafeandbistro Desi Breakfast is SO good that it makes the family fighting for the last piece! As you can see they serve quite a few mouthwatering options: Desi Omelette with soft and fluffy Puri’s, Chicken curry which is just AH-MAZING, Chana Chaat, Tortilla strips and crispy Pakoras. All to dip with their sweet Mango pulp & green Chutney. My favourite was the chicken curry which stole the limelight, the level of spices within the masala was rich and an aromatic potency that simply pushed our senses to the edge!

<< SWIPE LEFT TO SEE THE VIDEO << Beautiful Chicken Tagine Special slow cooked for 6 hours on a slow heat, accompanied with soft and fluffy potatoes, peas, fresh herbs and topped off with chilli. One of my absolute FAV Moroccan dishes and I must admit, @theclovecafeandbistro (based in Blackburn) nailed it 🔨 on the head. Tasted exactly how my Moroccan Aunt makes it and it took me back to my childhood. The flavour the Tagine pot gives the chicken is Tremendous - effortlessly falls off the bone and the fresh herbs gives an aromatic taste leaving you wanting more! It might not be to everyone's liking as Moroccan dishes don't have masala in them, but I sure LOVED it. Make sure you order in advance due to the length of time it takes to cook. Alhamdulillah @theclovecafeandbistro is @hmc_uk Certified.

Don’t judge me guys, just trust me on this one 🙈 this is….wait for it… a BLOOMING BIRYANI ARANCINI from @thefig_theolive based in Blackburn. Yep you heard it right here folks. It’s a medium sized ball stuffed with chicken biryani, coated in breadcrumbs and then deep fried to a golden perfection. Garnished with a yoghurt sauce and a sprinkle of Chevra on top. On a bed of onion Raita. Yummy! This is something I was apprehensive in trying because it sounds so bizarre to me but I took the risk & it sure payed off! This is quite inventive which has been brought to Indian cuisine. Very cleverly thought, I can confirm it was absolutely delish. The biryani was so tasty that when we took our first bite, a rush of flavour overpowered our tastebuds with the spices. It was nice and spicy. They also do a Daal Chawal Arancini and I can’t wait to try it. Will definitely come back again! The Fig and Olive are @hmc_uk Certified so no worries about whether it is stunned or not! Alhamdulilah The Fig & Olive are very accommodating RE Salah & will use the pardah boards to allow you to perform Salah within the restaurant. #HFGBlackburn #thefigandolive #thefigandtheolive #HMCApproved #HFGPrayerRoom

I couldn’t resist in doing another post on the food from @Roomaliblackburn guys! 🙈 If you are in a group I highly recommend you to book the “Dastarkhan” table where groups of 5-8 can sit on traditional floor cushions with a slightly elevated table and enjoy their meal. Its always fully booked on weekends. It has a Moroccan theme to it which is great for occasions. With curtains to accommodate for those who require pardah. We had two Masala Chips, Keema Karahi (on the right) which is my favourite dish they do, it goes so well with the paratha. Chicken tikka masala (orange/red), Butter chicken (middle), Lamb Karahi (left) and a Roomali Red mocktail (bottom). The Roomali red is one of the few Syrup based Mocktails I enjoy as the blend is just right. The dishes are always amazing, definitely one to try out! @roomaliblackburn are also HMC certified so you can rest assured everything is un stunned. They also have Salah facilities available which is great when traveling. #Roomali #HFGBlackburn #HFGPardah #HFGPrayerRoom

Now we have one of my favourite places for Indian food, especially dishes. Highly recommended the Keema Karahi from @roomaliblackburn it goes really well with their Paratha which has a great flakey texture. The staff are friendly & the management are extremely accommodating of my fussy requests. It’s a family run business & they take food seriously. They also have a small prayer room upstairs which is great when you are travelling. They do have areas that accommodate for pardah and are @hmc_uk certified. For those who are going as a group, I highly recommended you try to book the Dastarkhan area which is a booth with cushions allowing you to sit on the ground with a slightly elevated table. In the picture, you have a Chicken Tikka Masala (which is the creamy type but still has a nice flavour) a Prawn Karahi & my personal favourite Keema Karahi with their lovely Paratha. #HFGBlackburn #HMCApproved #HFGPrayerRoom #HFGPardah

The Crazy Joe Burger from @arizonajoesbolton has got me goin’ CrAzY! 😆 Succulent grilled chicken served with roasted lamb topped with caramelised onions, chopped peppers, fresh lettuce, mayo and melted mature cheese and sandwiched in between a toasted Brioche bun. The chicken fillet has been marinated with a great blend of spices perfect for the Asian Palate & the roast lamb is just ohh so succulent 😋 Alhamdulillah the owner has a huge focus on fresh ingredients and providing great fresh food. He’s so down to earth and humble when we speak to him which makes me want to go back again and again. Alhamdulillah Arizona Joe’s is @hmc_uk Certified so rest assured everything is non stunned with hand Zabah. #HFGBolton #HFGBurger #arizonajoes

Here we have the Basic Joe from @arizonajoesbolton which is a pure untarnished, homemade grilled beef patty, seasoned with salt & course ground pepper. The patty was moist & wasn’t burnt and the bun was spot-on, as was the salad. Fries & wedges were nice and crispy. I have been very impressed with Arizona Joe’s over the past few weeks (multiple visits) the quality of the meat & food is what you would pay double for elsewhere. There is so much space even if they are busy, from the outside it would still look quiet! The owner is such a nice, humble guy who is very passionate about the food he serves. He is very willing to take feedback & make the necessary changes/improvements. #HFGBurger #HFGBolton #ArizonaJoes They were also @hmc_uk certified at the time of dinning so you can rest assured all Chicken & Meat is non-stunned.

Rice & Three – HMC Certified
152 Deane Rd, Bolton BL3 5DL, UK

If you’re craving for traditional Gujrati homestyle, cooked food, then you NEED to visit Rice N Three, who are based on Dean road, Bolton. Here is the Friday Gosht Daal Chawal. Make sure you get it early because it does sell out pretty fast! It’s cooked fresh on the day and once it’s gone it’s gone! They have a special menu which changes daily and their trademark is rice with a choice of three types of curry, hence the name rice and three! Don’t worry, if they haven’t got a special which doesn’t tickle your fancy then you can order from the normal grill menu, which has staples like Kebab roll, Chicken Tikka pieces and Grilled Tandoori pieces of Chicken and Chips! 🙈 All made fresh to order! The place is not fancy but they have plenty of tables upstairs and downstairs available to eat in. It’s only open in the daytime. The Dean road branch is @hmc_uk Certified however, the Bradshaw gate in Bolton town centre isn’t as they have different suppliers #HFGBolton #RiceandThree

Grillaz Bolton – HMC Certified

We were looking forward to trying the new menu from @grillazbolton who are based in Bolton. After many discussions on what we should opt for, we finally settled for the chicken & steak sizzler. This was served on a very hot cast iron plate, with pieces of marinated chicken and prime cut steak, topped with rice, veggies and chips topped with melted cheese. Served with Peppercorn sauce. The flavour and combination of all ingredients was mediocre for me and didn’t sizzle with my taste buds, simply because I have had better Sizzlers in the past but it was far from being the worst. The boiled veg could have definitely benefited from some seasoning & has alot of potential. I would definitely go back and try more of what they offer because they have amazing things on their menu (the homemade pizza section is yummy 😋) Our full review is on the blog so don’t forget to check it out (link in the bio) All chicken & meat is @hmc_uk certified so no need to worry about it being stunned! #HFGBolton #Grillaz

Very eye catching, to the point you have everyone on the surrounding tables looking when it’s served & asking the waiters what is that? Its a combination of marinated chicken thighs, peppers & onions grilled to perfection braised with house Special spices. Served on a hanging skewer with peri peri beafeater chips & spicy rice. Towards the end of the video there is a steak served with mash, steamed veg & peppercorn sauce. This was requested on a board instead of a Sizzler to help prevent the steak from continually begin cooked whilst at the table.

How “Grande” does this pizza from Marco and Carl Bradford look? Its called the Ardente Di Pollo Grande “if you pardon the pun 🙈” Seasoned chicken pieces with roasted peppers and roquito chilli, finally sprinkled with chilli flakes on top and cooked in a stone baked oven. It was definitely spicy because the chilli’s had a fiery kick to it. But I’m not complaining because it was delicious! To the back we have two of my favourites: the Virgin Mojito & the Gombero Espetada 😋 Everything from @marcoandcarl was from a non-stunned supplier at the time of dining but please feel free to do your own checks. #HFGBradford #marcoandcarl Also available in the following locations #HFGLeicester #HFGPreston #HFGDrinks

Here we have the Blazing Crumb burger from @marcoandcarl A deep fried chicken fillet covered in a spicy batter which has a unique flavour to it due to the various relishes & sauces they use. The chicken fillet was fresh & tender with few subtle hints of spice from the batter. It’s usually served with rocket lettuce, fresh tomatoes & jalapeño so if you don’t like any of the above (like me) then you can order it without them. You can also order it with one of my favourites to accompany it, the masala chips which are a must have along with the picante bread starter when ever I visit 😋 Chicken was sourced from non stunned source at time of Dining. #Marcoandcarl #HFGBurger #HFGPreston #HFGLeicester #HFGBradford

Ever since I had the authentic tomato based butter chicken in Delhi, India; I’ve travelled the country trying to find something that tastes similar. I must say the butter chicken from saffron kitchen is the closest dish that brings back those memories from my time in India. Buttery, slightly sweet tomato based gravy with subtle spice undertones and tender marinated chicken pieces, this dish will surely satisfy your tasfe buds! On the top left we have the chicken jalfrezi which had a nice kick to it and the peppers added the authentic jalfrezi flavour to the dish. Both dish’s were accompanied with butter naan and pilau rice, however if you go for the butter chicken then you definitely need to try it with the butter naan.

I must say I have been impressed with the service & quality of the Burger’s from @iceburgofficial preston. I might even say it’s been one of my favourite #HFGBurger 🍔’s! Will definitely be coming here regularly, really love it when a place sets a great first impression & doesn’t turn into a huge let down. So far my favourite has to be the Wagyu Burger aptly named “The One” you could instantly notice the quality of the meat they were using. Everything just goes together so well from the Butter Brioche Bun which isn’t overly sweet like some Brioche can be, to the caramelised onions, Monterey Jack Cheese slice, IceBurg sauce lettuce & tomato used all complimenting each other in harmony. Then if you upgrade to a meal (which you totally should) you have the skin on fries that are garnished with Rosemary & a draught drink of your choice. We requested our burgers to be cooked medium which took some explaining but to our surprise it was actually cooked to perfection & was medium in the middle 💖 (there’s nothing worse than a burnt burger!) One thing to note is the patty’s are 4oz so they are just enough, especially if you plan to have dessert after (who wouldn’t with @heavenlydessertspreston round the corner) but if your hungry then it’s definitely worth going for the double which should fill you up. #HFGBurger #HFGPreston #IceBurg #IceBurgPreston All Chicken & Meat was from non stunned source at time of Dining & is clearly mentioned on the menu.

I couldn’t resist in doing another post on the food from @Roomaliblackburn guys! 🙈 If you are in a group I highly recommend you to book the “Dastarkhan” table where groups of 5-8 can sit on traditional floor cushions with a slightly elevated table and enjoy their meal. Its always fully booked on weekends. It has a Moroccan theme to it which is great for occasions. With curtains to accommodate for those who require pardah. We had two Masala Chips, Keema Karahi (on the right) which is my favourite dish they do, it goes so well with the paratha. Chicken tikka masala (orange/red), Butter chicken (middle), Lamb Karahi (left) and a Roomali Red mocktail (bottom). The Roomali red is one of the few Syrup based Mocktails I enjoy as the blend is just right. The dishes are always amazing, definitely one to try out! @roomaliblackburn are also HMC certified so you can rest assured everything is un stunned. They also have Salah facilities available which is great when traveling. #Roomali #HFGBlackburn #HFGPardah #HFGPrayerRoom

Now we have one of my favourite places for Indian food, especially dishes. Highly recommended the Keema Karahi from @roomaliblackburn it goes really well with their Paratha which has a great flakey texture. The staff are friendly & the management are extremely accommodating of my fussy requests. It’s a family run business & they take food seriously. They also have a small prayer room upstairs which is great when you are travelling. They do have areas that accommodate for pardah and are @hmc_uk certified. For those who are going as a group, I highly recommended you try to book the Dastarkhan area which is a booth with cushions allowing you to sit on the ground with a slightly elevated table. In the picture, you have a Chicken Tikka Masala (which is the creamy type but still has a nice flavour) a Prawn Karahi & my personal favourite Keema Karahi with their lovely Paratha. #HFGBlackburn #HMCApproved #HFGPrayerRoom #HFGPardah
