The El Food Brothers have hit up some big names for Laying The Beef To Rest. Solita, McDonalds and Burger King, Byron. But only one claims to be ‘Almost Famous‘
A better description may be ‘Quite Infamous’. Everyone has heard of this place. Those who have been claim ‘its the best burgers you’ll ever have’, ‘it’ll knock your socks off’ and other such hyperbole. Those who haven’t been either long to go, or dismiss the place as over hyped.

The third instalment of Laying The Beef To Rest sees us hitting another chain restaurant. Which we found out has at least 53 locations in the UK, as originally there was meant to be 52, with each assigned a playing card.

Laying The Beef To Rest continues with a visit to 2 well know burger franchises. If you haven’t guessed it yet, its the Joker (McDonalds) vs The King (Burger King) in a battle of the cheeseburgers.
We managed to do both of these on the same day, so both were judged mere minutes of each other, as they are now handily situated across from each other in Piccadilly Gardens.

In the month of April we lost over 2 stone and Prince (loads of other people but I like Prince) one of these facts I am happy about (it’s the weight loss).
In a homage to his Purpleness I have done a piece on our journey on the 5:2 diet using his work as inspiration (and yes Prince did write it and perform it so take your Sinead O’Connor and fuck off)
Anyway here we go, trying my hand at creativity once more.
