Establishments that have been running for a long time must be doing something right to last this long, especially as competition grows. One such institution is Alfred’s Kitchen. I’ve always wanted to try this place out and after leaving a party in the local area, I decided to go there for some supper.
The place looks like a school canteen with a board filled with many options. A wood fire is going nearby for the patrons on those cooler nights. Alfred’s is famous for their pea and ham soup, so that is what I started with.
The soup is quite thick and has a nice smoky flavour. In my cup I had bacon bits at the bottom but I found the soup a bit too “floury” for my liking.
Burgers is why people come to Alfred’s so I had one of those too.
Not content with a basic burger, I chose the bacon and egg version. The bun was freshly toasted and the lettuce and tomato was also very fresh. Maybe I’ve been spoilt by Jus and Grill’d but the Alfred’s pattie is just your standard beef pattie and you can tell the difference. Other than the freshness of the burger, I don’t see any other highlights unfortunately.
Alfred’s is still quite popular and expect a bit of a wait before your order is filled. The burger was nice but I was expecting a little more.
