The Leeds pop-up burger joint serving Sunday Roast dinners inside a burger

The ultimate northerner’s burger combo has arrived in Leeds.

Bringing a whole new meaning to Sunday lunch, Honest Burgers is serving up a unique roast dinner burger inside Northern Monk Refectory.

Honest Burgers is opening a permanent store in Leeds this summer, but whilst construction and staff training takes place, the nationally renowned burger joint has taken over the kitchens at Northern Monk to give us a taste of what’s in store.

A mouth-watering menu exclusive to Leeds is just one of the bonuses about the takeover.

There are no less than two burgers on the menu that you won’t find in any of their fifty odd restaurants- and they embody everything it means to be a northerner, including our love for a Sunday roast.

The Sunday Roast Dinner burger is a gravy-laden dream for anyone looking for a weekend foodie fix that can cure a hangover or act as a formal family dinner choice with respective interest.

The burger itself is a standard, but nonetheless delicious, meaty beef patty served pink, then piled high with all your typical roast dinner faves. Think cheesy leeks, horseradish cream, savoy cabbage, bacon gravy and bacon- there’s even mini rosemary roasties hidden inside the soft brioche buns.

Offered originally as a National Burger Day special back in 2016, the secret recipe makes its way onto the menu for very special occasions only, according to the Honest Burgers team. Designed out of a love for cheese and veg on a roast dinner plate with cheddar, stilton and parmesan- this really is a unique combo you’re unlikely to find anywhere else in Leeds.

This is a Sunday exclusive, but if you’re after a mid-week burger fix, there’s still a one-of-a-kind burger that combines all the best part of us northerners into one juicy lunchtime special.

The Northern Monk X Honest Burgers collab deserves prime place on the menu (and we’re keeping all our fingers crossed that it becomes a permanent fixture at the Leeds restaurant later this year) with no less than two alcoholic infusions.

An Honest beef patty with bacon and Heathen IPA beer with cheese, Faith pale ale pickled onions, rocket and then a delectable combination of thick curry sauce and shoestring fries (like an elite version of chip stick on a sarnie).

Served with rosemary fries, coleslaw or salad, washing this one down with a pint of Northern Monk lager is optional, but highly recommended.

If this is the bar set for the new Leeds menu, we’re really excited.

The new restaurant is set to open on Cloth Hall Street this summer, but if you can’t wait until then to get your hands on these drool-worthy burgers, paying a visit to the Northern Monk refectory is well worth the five minute walk
