thirteenth Factor – Burgers/Vegan – Nottingham

thirteenth Factor have been round some time, predominantly servicing the individuals of Nottingham by way of road meals popups and deliveries. They’ve owned this web site on Fortress Boulevard for some months to service their supply providing, not too long ago opening it as a totally fledged restaurant. Curiously its not likely close to some other bars or eating places and a unit that’s struggled in different guises earlier than. I’ve larger hopes for thirteenth Factor, them already having established sturdy following from increase their model over the previous couple of years. The restaurant itself is ready up with a considerably sparse welcoming space and many of the tables tucked additional again. The partitions are adorned with fairly putting artworks, a classy and modern house. The menu follows their successes and retains it easy with a handful of burgers, just a few sides in addition to the, now obligatory, possibility of some extra small plates too.

Corn ribs – thirteenth Factor

It was certainly one of their first companies so I forgave a bit of slowness from the kitchen though what truly irked me extra was their flagship “factor of smoke” burger. It seems the half on their Instagram, a cloche full of smoke is eliminated tableside… a little bit of theatre sure however whenever you’re in intently packed tables it turns into a fairly overwhelming expertise each couple of minutes in case you get a waft within the unsuitable route. I’ll put my grumpy outdated man routine to at least one aspect and say when meals did seem it was nicely offered, with minimalist, trendy plates making each the burger and sides stand out on their matt black background. The buffalo burger itself (£11) was actually moderately good. The “hen” patty a pleasant texture however most significantly the sauce had baggage of flavour, I’m a fan of protecting it easy and a handful of slaw and some pickles let me wanting nothing extra. Nice for a vegan burger, excellent for any burger (in Nottingham a minimum of). Corn ribs (£4.50) had a bit of smoked paprika for an additional depth of flavour and had been nicely cooked and candy, a pleasant foil to the wealthy buffalo sauce. I had additionally opted for loaded shawarma fries for £7.95. These felt a bit dear vs others I’ve had round Nottingham however the high quality was good. Their shawarma itself was nicely flavoured however didn’t really feel prefer it went notably nicely right here, the salsa, aioli and chilli sauce wanted a softer factor than the fairly giant shawarma items. I’d suggest simply getting their regular fries for £3.50 except you’re feeling notably hungry or decadent!

I actually loved the meals at thirteenth Factor, they’ve refined their providing nicely and never fallen into the lure of providing a giant menu or issues past their means. The setup was polished however felt a bit of missing in soul, the employees nicely drilled and suited however not but discovered their capacity to be extra relaxed. It compares pretty favourably on value to the likes of Bohns and Fats Hippo however a bit of greater than the cheaper choices like Ohannes though actually it may solely be in comparison with the previous. It ought to be a spot for vegans and/or burger lovers, on the proof of my go to it could be onerous for anybody to not benefit from the providing right here.
