To mark national burger day we take a look at some of our favourites:
Patty and Bun
With two locations across London, including one located conveniently near Liverpool street station, Patty and Bun are relative newcomers on the capital’s burger scene. Despite this they are already developing a cult following, with their aim of delivering a unique and truly memorable burger experience.
Signature Burger: The ‘Smokey Robinson’ this aptly named burger features caramelised onions and smoky mayonnaise on top of their classic beef burger patty.
A Camden favourite, this burger bar in Camden’s famous Inverness Street has had an ‘in the know’ following of regulars for sometime. Recently opening branches in Chelsea, and Shoreditch, it’s still the Camden branch that provides the original fairy-lit Hache Experience.
Signature Burger: The Steak Louisiana, a grilled 100% steak burger topped with American crunchy peanut butted and mature cheddar cheese, a burger Elvis himself would be proud of.
Ed’s Easy Diner
Eds has expanded in recent years, with a franchises popping up throughout London and Essex but for the classic 50s diner feel, head to their Soho branch, get there early and sit at the counter. As well as burgers you can indulge yourself in cheese fries and Oreo milkshakes.
Signature burger: ‘The original’, A classic American burger, bun, cheese, lettuce, tomato. Onion, dill pickle, mayo, mustard. What more do you need?
This Hackney favourite, named after the women’s advice centre that once stood on the same spot in fashionable Mare Street is growing in popularity with locals, named as one of Time Out’s best burger spot in the city, the word is out.
Signature Burger: The Breakfast burger – basically a whole fry up somehow squashed into a brioche bun, that’s all you need to know.
It’s not just the Capital that has burgers by the bun load, Liverpool and now Manchester are getting in on the scene with the reassuringly popular almost famous burger bars. They also do a mean line in cocktails.
Signature burger: The River Phoenix, a suitably hedonistic burger choice for pleasure seekers. A double cheeseburger loaded with bacon, BBQ fried onions, chipotle ketchup and baconaise.
