Gastropolitan is my first choice of butcher shops in Pécs since they can get any meat that is legal. I was quite happy when I realized that they open a street food booth on Ifjúság street. Great is that after trying all foods available at Fellow’s Burger & Sandwich, I’m even happier.
Sure, we are not talking about an exclusive or low budget establishment but something in between. Some of the best features of the two worlds with some of the disadvantages of them. The place used to be a greengrocers and is quite small with no seats at all but counters for maximum 6 people. Everything is available for take away and I think you are even encouraged to act accordingly.
If you have a butcher shop – and actually a wholesale business for restaurants – the decision to open a burger and sandwich shop seems like something very natural. You can get the best ingredients on a regular basis without any problems and for a reasonable price. And this is something that the casual customer gets instantly when trying anything at Fellow’s. The beef for the burger patties or the meat for the Cubano are of excellent quality. The next neccessary step is making no harm to them. Like said, I tried everything and almost everything is without any flaws. There are at least three price categories and I’m not going to write here about the bottom line.
The Cubano sandwich (HUF1260) is without doubt the best they have to offer. Superb meat with great curry sauce just enough veggies and all this in a perfect panini. The burger is just perfect but you have to tell them if you want the patty to be medium rare since the default is well done. The Philly Cheese steak sandwich has also superb meat and the grilled veggies are great too, but the cheese sauce is a little bit dull. The Fellow’s dog with self made sausages and their very own curry sauce is the ultimate best buy.
Another great thing is that they have two types of coffe to offer, one budget blend and the other is a premium arabica both from a pod machine but this is only a small compromise for the price.
Update: The list of available sandwiches got even longer. I already tried the lamb burger (HUF1490) that has the same price like the cheesburger, but it’s without fries. No wonder it’s of even better quality and something reminds me a little bit of the Big Mac but in a very positive way. Maybe because the sauce…
