The Scallion and Scotchie Fries


Bleecker double-cooked fries, dusted with Scotch bonnet, thyme & spring onion powder, topped with Melissa's garlic & shallot mayo, and crispy shallots.

The Cassava Crisp Burger

Bleecker beef patty with scotch bonnet & thyme crispy cassava, green seasoning mayo, tamarind jam and American cheese.


This isn't just about delicious food—it's also about giving back.


We're proud to support an incredible charity with all profits from the burger and fries: The Sickle Cell Society, dedicated to improving the lives of those affected by sickle cell disorder, a genetic condition affecting red blood cells' ability to carry oxygen, leading to pain episodes and increased risk of organ damage. Treatment focuses on managing symptoms and complications, with options like Hydroxyurea and bone marrow transplant for certain cases.
