Tommi’s Burger Joint, Chelsea

I loved our visit to Tommi’s Burger Joint just off Marylebone High Street (the first of the Icelandic burger chain in the UK from a guy called Tomas Tomasson). After a slightly unfulfilling dinner at Lyle’s in Shoreditch, we decided to cross town for a quick burgery snack at their new shop in Chelsea. The small ground floor dining room was a cutely designed space; … Continue reading Tommi’s Burger Joint, Chelsea

Byron, Waterloo

“Home of the proper hamburger” Byron was recently sold for a whopping £100m which is a humongous sum of money for their 36 outposts across London and the UK. I think that means we’re going to be seeing a lot more of them. On a Sunday evening our burger obsession got the better of us and we popped along to Byron on the Cut, right … Continue reading Byron, Waterloo

Dirty Burger, Vauxhall

I wasn’t wholly in love with Dirty Burger when we visited their first outpost in Kentish Town. The simple concept was good but it was the burger I found disappointing. When I heard the Soho House Group were opening their second Dirty Burger I thought I’d give it a go. It’s situated on that massive roundabout in Vauxhall and at 11:45am we had to wade … Continue reading Dirty Burger, Vauxhall


If you pay Meatliquor a visit during lunch or dinner time then you’ll most likely be faced with a rather large queue. Such is the length of the queues that the bouncer (yes they have a bouncer) stamps your hand to avoid any annoying queue jumpers or pusher-inners. Even though all this seems rather daunting, I really do feel it’s worth the wait – bear … Continue reading Meatliquor

Burger & Shake

So what happens if you’re near Russell Square and you desperately need a burger but don’t want to travel into town and then queue for a few hours? Well, panic not little ones as Burger & Shake has opened and it’s just a short walk from Russell Square tube station. It’s a small, simple but pretty restaurant with booth seating on the right and close … Continue reading Burger & Shake


Having recently experienced near burger perfection at Patty&Bun I thought I’d give newly opened BRGR.CO a go. It’s in a pretty good spot right in the heart of Wardour Street in Soho and as I walked in and smelt the waft of smokey grilled beef, things were looking positive. Sadly however it went downhill from there. The first of two small dining rooms had an … Continue reading BRGR.CO


After a string of successful pop ups Patty&Bun has found itself a permanent home in James Street just round the corner from Selfridges. Being only a stones throw away from Meat Liquor and Tommi’s Burger Joint, this is the area you need to visit to get your burger fix. The restaurant is only small, seating around 30 and has a very simple appearance. With wooden … Continue reading Patty&Bun

Honest Burgers Soho

Honest Burgers have bravely ventured out from Brixton and opened their second restaurant in Mead Street in Soho (a 15 second walk from Burger and Lobster) and adds to London’s ever growing burger scene. You could easily walk past this restaurant as the outside is very plain – as is the interior. White walls with wooden tables and chairs didn’t make us want to spend … Continue reading Honest Burgers Soho

Tommi’s Burger Joint

Say the word Iceland and the first thing that springs to mind is Kerry Katona endorsed frozen party platters for 34p. A trendy burger restaurant is definitely not the first thing you think of – but that is about to change. The king of Icelandic burgers Tomas Tomasson (he’s the slightly crazy looking guy in the picture) has opened up Tommi’s Burger Joint on Marylebone … Continue reading Tommi’s Burger Joint


Having been to Meatliquor and loving their heart attack inducing, grease laden burgers, my gentleman companion and I couldn’t resist going to their new venture Meatmarket. With views over the rather run-down Jubilee Market Hall in Covent Garden, this place is rather difficult to find. It’s more of a diner than a restaurant and the whole place feels like it could do with a good … Continue reading Meatmarket

Burger and Lobster Mayfair

If you don’t like lobster or burgers then run for your life as this restaurant serves only these. There’s no menu, the waiter simply tells you and there are three options to choose from: Whole Lobster (steamed or steamed then grilled) served with garlic and lemon butter, fries and salad. Lobster Roll; this is the lobster flesh taken out of the shell and served in … Continue reading Burger and Lobster Mayfair
