Free State Kitchen is hidden away in Maryland Street just off Hope Street by the Everyman. It definitely is a little gem which even though it's tucked down a little street has a hell of a lot of hype and I believe it does really well.
Walking into FSK it's really cool, it's very 60's I think and I love it. It would have been nicer if the sun was shining because their garden is beautiful. It's very clear there's an American influence.
Our server was lovely she came over and took our drink orders. FSK have American Soda's on their drinks menu. Lee had a Pepsi Wild Cherry, which is amazing but I decided to go for a Coca Cola out of a glass bottle, it's how it's meant to be served.
I was kind of umming and ahhing over whether to get a burger or a hot dog but I decided the burger was the smart choice. Their menu has a great deal of choice on it. It was probably the best choice. Lee got a Double Deluxe Burger and I got the American Cheeseburger with Baconnaise. I have one word: Delicious! I proper couldn't get over it. The burgers were cooked to perfection, they were so juicy and lovely. They were a little messy but it's all worth it. If you go in I would ask for extra napkins. I have never had Baconnaise before but I cannot wait to have it again.
I wish I would have had room to have a dessert, there was an Oreo Cheesecake on the specials menu which I would have loved to try. The burgers were so filling though.
Overall, FSK has a really good atmosphere and I think if it was a sunny day the place would have been buzzing. It was really clean. The staff and the service was lovely. It's definitely a place I would be more than happy to visit again.
