You may remember that last year, I went on a secret crusade to seek out the best burger in Reading's town centre. And I declared that, while Giraffe's burger was both great quality and value for money, the burger at Jamie's Italian just pipped it to the post, because of the flavour of the combined ingredients (but mostly because of the jalapeño chilli and the texture of the bun). The only problem was that you have to pay extra for the chips, which made it quite pricey.
But then everything changed. Because Handmade Burger Co decided to set up shop at the other end of the Riverside.
