Burgers done extremely well with a variety of breads and convenient sides
Well what a peach to finally do! This is what I would describe as the ultimate burger fest available in London on two counts: 1) the care and attention to the food is immaculate in that the meats and bbq and bacon jam sauces are carefully thought out and made as well as the vanilla syrup infused brioche bread (with glaze of the syrup on top of bun) to go with the pulled pork burger and the potato bread to go with the brisket; and 2) the brisket burger was an immediate holy moly moment – both burgers were wonderful, but I knew instantly with the brisket I would be recommending to close friends to try this as soon as humanly possible.
Then there were other lovely touches as well like the cheese sauce to go with the chips as a bechemel cheese sauce with bacon, meaning it did not go hard within 30 seconds of cooling and proving to be an utter guilty pleasure delight and I also loved the communal tables. This has to be done again and am so pleased it is finally in the bag so I can say outright what the score here is: it is the pinnacle of comfort food, worthy of a drop in lunch or pre-going out ‘you need a decent hit and quickly’ meal or, probably the greatest hangover food you are likely to come across in the world. I didn’t have enough room for the onion rings but I am reliably told these are to die for so I will come back with avengance for these next time. I should also mention that one burger and a side will be plenty to fill most human beings up, but as I must take advantage of all visits (as these can mostly only occur at the weekends and there are so many to do), I went for both options to maximise as much tasting as possible.
It was was my good fortune to meet Dan Fiteni (one of the founders and lead on the bakery side) who happened to be there for the Marylebone festival outside coincidentally going on at the same time and was great to say hello and speak about it.
An absolute keeper and one I am already looking forward to taking my associate Mr Bainbridge to whenever possible.
