The best way to end a week
I don't what it is about the West's fascination with Hamburgers, after all, there's nothing very special about the concept of a meat patty on a bun.

They're not even unique to Hamburg - they could as easily be called Dusseldorfers, or Frankfurters (no, that's something else) or even Berliners - no, wait, that's a jam doughnut, isn't it?

Well, whatever they're called they are the perfect quick meal for those times when you don't feel like cooking, on the way back from a 'do' and feel the need for a carb jolt or just a chance for a cheap meal out.

The best burgers, of course, are not mass produced, but hand-made, with good, hand-cut chips, that indispensable accompaniment for any good burger.

And that's how chef at Edgecombe Bros makes them - on Friday evenings. We dropped in to re-sample the Edge-burger, it having been a while since we last ate there and there had been a change of chef.

Firstly and most importantly, this is a takeaway service, just like Alfred's Kitchen and there is no table service. One fronts up to the bar, orders off a short but serviceable list of options - Edgie-burger, vegi-burger, steak sandwich and so on, pay for it and waits either at the counter or in- or outside since they do offer their eating, seating area for you to nosh your burger.

So you can sit outside on a warm, balmy evening with a million dollar view, listening to live music while eating an excellent, very reasonably priced meal - what a bargain.

Only, of course, if the burgers are good and at Edgecombes they really, really are - thick, perfectly cooked patties, fresh salad and those delicious, thick-cut chips.

I chose a steak sandwich and the steak was perfectly cooked, tender and juicy, while everyone else had burgers - we also ordered extra chips - self-knowledge is an excellent thing.

Edgecombes is licensed, being a winery, and you can try their wines (I would suggest you do), beer, cider or soft drinks.

There is a lovely wide green lawn for the smalls to run around on while the grown-ups solve the world's problems over a burger and a beer, enjoying the twilight gloaming.

It's pretty much the best way to end a tiring week that I know.

Very highly recommended
