The name Beef And Liberty came from the motto of Sublime Society of Beefsteaks, a leading restaurant in London of the 18th century. They have 3 restaurants in Shanghai, 2 in Pudong (Shanghai Centre and Kerry Centre) and 1 in Puxi (Kawah Centre). Strangely, previously, when I asked my friends in Shanghai for Burgers restaurant recommendation, none mentioned this to me. However, they suggested Blue Frog 蓝蛙 which I tried and I love it.
I wrote this blog post about Beef And Liberty after my second visit. For both time, I walked away feeling satisfied with the meal.
The restaurant specialised in Hamburgers, offering a total of 8 selection of burgers. Mainly beef. There are only 3 non-beef burgers; chicken, vegetarian and pork. Though from the name, I was expecting to spot beef steak on the menu.
Among the 5 sides, I tried 2 of them. First was the crowd-pleaser, Chicken Strips (CNY 49). Tasty fried boneless chicken. Second item was the healthy Broccolini & Feta (CNY59) for some green. Even though it was a simple dish, it was flavourful due to the feta and lemon zest.
Since it is a beef restaurant, having a Beef Burger is the way to go. Five dishes offered, with option of firstly the good plain Hamburger (CNY89), Cheese Hamburger (CNY99), Bacon Cheese Hamburger (CNY102), Black Pepper Hamburger and lastly the fiery spicy El Cabron Hamburger (CNY109).
Little Pecker (CNY 79) was pale in comparison with the rest of the burger I tried. Though the chicken was flavoured with piri piri marinade, celeriac slaw, mustard and lemon aioli, it was relatively bland for my preference.
The Notorious P.I.G (CNY 89) consisted of braised BBQ pulled pork instead of a patty packed of grind meat. Compliment the sweet meat with green apple slaw was brillant as it reduces the cloying feel of the BBQ sauce and meatiness feel.
In addition, I love the Sweet Potato Fries over the French Fries, though they were equally good too.
Looking for awesome burger, Beef And Liberty will be the it place. Guarantee for a satisfaction meal.
