Man vs Food – Isleworth
With the world famous Man vs Food opening its doors to the ravenous lot of London, Isleworth, it was only appropriate that we go over to this small venue and fatten ourselves up like our cousins from across the shore!
Firstly, a word of warning: if you go in the evening, book ahead, or you could be waiting some time for a table.
Parking is limited (although there is a Tesco car park across the road which might help).
The staff were very welcoming, and hand you a small complimentary bottle of fizzy drink before the order.
The corn dog was fairly good.
The giant burger challenge! Check the size of the plate!
Two guys tried; one managed a third; the other half.
It needed to be accomplished in around 45mins.
Oh and a cute little bell was rung to start the challenge; how quaint.
These wings were a poor execution of what hot wings should be.
What you get is pure Tabasco sauce running off the chicken.
It’s overpowering and a pathetic attempt at hot wings. Did they even try this before they put it on the menu?
They said, and we kid you not, that the above was supposed to look like that as per the guidelines drawn out by some schmuck in the States.
Their signature range burger (replace the bacon with something else) was a poor attempt at a burger.
How does shoving onion rings, hash browns, and an egg elevate a burger?
The cheese was non-existent, and the meat was burned and, thus, dry, and too small in proportion.
You could barely taste the sauce since there was hardly anything there.
In effect, it was like having three separate starters!
This was pretty tasty. However, it was impossible to finish because the turkey sauce was both too much, and over powering to the point of making you feel sick.
Shame because it could have been a winner.
But, again you wonder whether they tasted this before putting it on the menu, or was it just a royal cock up by students trying to play the chef for the evening?
The (cheapest) Rookie burger on the menu was just… wrong!
We know what you’re thinking: I could have made that at home, but better. The meat was dry and so was the burger.
- NO/ NO
- CHILD SEATING
Only the steak is worth getting. Nonetheless, given the price, you'd be better off making your own food at home. And don't forget to buy something to eat from Tesco for your journey home.
Very limited parking and book ahead if going in the evening.
