Butcher’s Burger: The Basics Done Well at Westown Hub Branch of Burger Restaurant Chain

We don’t really understand the correlation between summertime and junk food, but it seems like our cravings for all things sinful are heightened during the hotter months in Cairo. The concept of gourmet burgers continues to be trendy on the fad-loving Cairo dining scene and Butcher’s Burger’s increasing popularity has seen it open another branch in 6th of October City’s Westown Hub.

The medium-sized restaurant offer both indoor and outdoor seating and is hard to miss in the food-court thanks in-part to the yellow mini-bus prop in the outdoor area. Carrying its usual relaxed, kitschy, steakhouse vibe, our waiter dropped by with menus as soon as we were seated.

Offering the usual goldmine of burger variations, the menu stays true to the joint’s signatures. The Milano Burger (54LE), which features mozzarella cheese and pesto sauce as toppings, as well as the Hawaiian Burger (52LE), which features pineapple and Teriyaki sauce, definitely caught our watchful eyes.

Ultimately, though, we decided to go for classics, opting for The Mighty Butcher (77LE) and the Butcher’s Mushroom Burger (54LE). Our order, as promised, arrived within 20 minutes.

Both burgers came with a side of French fries, which were a bit too scarce for our liking, as well as a small serving of Coleslaw. The Mighty Butcher, which consisted of a 300g medium-well grilled beef patty as requested, topped with cheese, jalapenos, lettuce, beef bacon, garlic-mayo and caramelised onions, was everything you need it to be: filling, delicious and oh-so-satisfying. The Butcher’s Mushroom Burger was smaller than the former, yet still filling, with grilled mushrooms topping its well-done beef patty, alongside onion rings, as requested and no Swiss cheese as per our wishes. Both patties tasted fresh and were seasoned well, while the toppings and sauces made for good, trusty combinations.

All in all, from the immaculateness of the place, to the friendliness of the waiters ,to the accuracy when it comes to the orders to the mouth-watering burgers, the Westown Hub branch of Butcher’s Burger was almost faultless. We would have, however, preferred our fries, which were oh-so-crisp, to have been offered in a more generous portion.

360 Tip

Ask about the Mighty Bastard - a 1kg burger that is big enough to feed eight people that sells for 259LE. Yeah.

Best Bit

They do the basics well and, if given half the chance, we’d happily live on these burgers.

Worst Bit

We love our fries and so naturally, we want them in nothing-less-than-satisfying portions.
