Slide into the Weekend with this new Burger Special | 9Lives
Reading Time: 3 min

Hudsons has launched a very tempting new slider special that allows you to taste your way through their menu for a very decent price.

The Slide into the Weekend campaign runs every Thursday, where you can order a selection of mini burgers at R25 per slider (with a minimum of three per person). We popped in for a taste last week when the special officially launched.

Hudsons in Stellenbosch is slap bang in the middle of town and an ideal spot to grab a bite while exploring the town. They’ve set up shop in an historic house on Dorp Street, walking distance from all the museums, wine bars and shops. Settle on the front porch on a nice day and you can laze away your lunch hour (or longer) in the shade of the trees, or pop indoors on a chilly afternoon and settle in on the couches.

I love trying out a bunch of stuff when I visit restaurants, and this slider special is a fantastic way work your way through a variety of fun flavour combinations.

Between two of us we ordered most of the options, ending up with four each (which was actually a bit too much). The Boss is great, a beef patty stuffed with mozzarella and cheddar, topped with BBQ beef rib and home-made pickles. Or go for the El Camino, a free range chicken patty topped with nacho chips, guacamole, salsa and sour cream.

The Stomper is also really good (and vegetarian), with a falafel patty, jalapinos, roast beetroot, slaw, fresh coriander, yogurt and sriracha. Unfortunately this is their only vegetarian option so if you don’t eat meat you won’t have a variety to choose from, but at least you can still join in.

Finish off the experience with one of their colossal milkshakes! I’m not kidding, the table next to us ordered two and they’re about the size of a fishbowl cocktail. Sugar fix for daaayz. They looked incredible though, topped with huge cookies and ice cream or a mountain of cotton candy.

Or just have a beer. That’s fine too.
