Where | Hidden deep within the heart of the Southern Suburbs is the gem that is the Lime Tree Café. It is worth visiting, even if you don’t regularly find yourself in that part of Cape Town. Bonus points that it is in a fairly quiet, residential area.
What | Lime Tree has a fair section of beef or chicken burgers, as well as the Earth Burger (which is vegetarian). They are fairly reasonable, considering the large portions. I am always fascinated by the different options (like as the Firecracker Burger or the Pizza Burger). I must admit that I usually go for the same option: the Free Range Chicken Burger. The chicken breast is marinated in a lemon and herb sauce. Alongside the fillings (rocket, dark greens, a deep-fried onion ring, sauce, avo salsa, red onion, pickles and tomato), there was also pepperdew and feta added. The pepperdews add a nice kick. I love to eat burgers with my hands, but this one is too big. What I love about this burger is that the fillings are plentiful and not just the usual lettuce-onion-tomato combo. The ingredients are also obviously fresh. The portion is huge – go hungry!
The Free Range Chicken Burger costs R78
Conclusion | This burger is tasty and filling – everything that I expect from a chicken burger. The convenient location and fairly reasonable price just seals the deal for me.
