Burgers are not just burgers at Wholly Cow!
Galway City has some of the best burgers in Ireland with Wholly Cow Burgers Newcastle Road becoming one of Galway’s finest burgers joints in town.
Celebrating its first birthday recently Wholly Cow Burgers has fast become famous amongst its growing customer base for their mouth-watering flavours, succulent meats and their delicious homemade fries made fresh daily. Using locally sourced aged beef from Gort, Cashel Blue cheeses, Dubliner cheddar combined with seasoned pickles, homemade juicy relish and fresh brioche buns served with biodegradable, eco-friendly, compostable utensils in a chilled, casual setting makes for the perfect burger experience.
Owners Val and Jacinta Lynam set up Wholly Cow Burgers just over a year ago with an “all-natural, feel good, taste amazing” concept. They believe locally produced food is often healthier and tastier than products that have travelled long distances. They also believe that supporting local economy helps strengthen the community they live in. Val is the head chef and is passionate about transparency in every sense.
The kitchen is open so that customers can see what is happening from the relish stewing for 10 hours, the fresh potatoes being peeled and cut into fries, the burgers being grilled, the pickles sitting in tarragon, fennel and dill producing the most delectable flavours, the whole mechanics of the kitchen is on display.
Val, having had years of experience in Kitchens in the UK and Ireland has come to appreciate a stripped back approach to cooking, really getting to the finer elements of ingredients bringing out the most unimaginable flavours possible. Combining simple foods to develop a clean eating experience in their casual Galway burger joint. They manage the kitchen carefully to keep food waste to a minimum and any waste is composted including recyclable or compostable
Val said; “We choose to use fresh, locally sourced and sustainable ingredients to make deliciously simple burgers all wrapped in 100% compostable packaging for a better fast food dining experience. The menu is simple, 5 burgers, one veggie (of course) and chips. The entire menu is Irish. The meat, bread and potatoes are all Galway, while the fresh veggies and a range of Irish cheeses from around the country playing a starring role.” Jacinta added; “Our burgers are full of flavours; juicy textures and you are not left feeling stodgy. It is all about the wholesome, high quality and attention to detail that goes into each one that makes our burgers not like any other burger.”
