Mooshies, Shoreditch, London

Mooshies, Shoreditch, London

I’ve had two gos with vegan burger joint Mooshies, but it still hasn’t warmed to me completely. It’s good, it’s interesting. But I can’t help feeling something was lacking in the two burgers that I’ve tried so far. Just a little more convincing and I […]

Eden’s Cottage, Finsbury Park, London

Eden’s Cottage, Finsbury Park, London

I enjoy irony hunting as much as the next middle-class, poverty tourist hipster. But truth be told, I simply want fried chicken dammit. The houses of chicken are an intriguing institution and there are so many of these stores here in the UK. The ever […]

100 Wardour Street, Soho, London

100 Wardour Street, Soho, London

100 Wardour Street is the new form restaurant/ bar/ lounge from the previous longstanding Marquee Club and Floridita. This was all well before my time. I came across it as it was partnered with Hot Dinners for a 50% offer. Can’t see no to them savings. I felt 100 Wardour Street was more style than substance when it came to the food. But at these prices, the complaints are limited.

Bleecker Burger, Spitalfields, London

Bleecker Burger, Spitalfields, London

It took me a little bit of time before I got my dirty paws on a Bleecker burger, often regarded as one of London’s best burgers around. And I concur. The burgers are massively juicy and some of the best, most satisfying meat patties I’ve […]

Meat & Greet, Nové Město, Prague

Meat & Greet, Nové Město, Prague

Hello! You can find some rather extraordinary burgers at Meat & Greet. This is one of the many occasions I’m thankful for Zomato for pointing me at something the locals love. Thankfully, the wonderful people are active on the platform so there’s plenty of good […]

Volcanic Grill, Dalston, London

Volcanic Grill, Dalston, London

The crowd erupts into applause. We were promised the best bacon cheeseburgers in town and boy, did we get them. Volcanic Grill is a six week old pop-up kitchen residency specialising in a South African-barbecue style of cooking. They’re located in the very hip neighbourhood of Dalston, and the equally cool Farr’s School of Dancing. By the way, this isn’t an actual dance studio anymore. It was back in the 1930’s but today it’s a classic Hackney pub and all round hang out space. And as we found out, packing some seriously kickin’ burgers.

Shake Shack, Leicester Square, London

Shake Shack, Leicester Square, London

Cheese, cheese, everywhere. That’s the good part. Everything else about Shake Shack UK was disappointing for me. Originally starting out in Madison Square Park in a literal shack, the chain had exploded globally and eventually found it’s way to Leicester Square here in London. I’d always […]

Snooze, Luxembourg

Snooze, Luxembourg

The experience takes a while so you might actually have a snooze whilst at Snooze. That is in jest, but our time at Snooze in Luxembourg did feel like a long one. We did have the pre-warning that the burgers would take twenty minutes, but […]

Honest Burgers, Soho, London

Honest Burgers, Soho, London

If I’m honest, I’d tell you this is a positively palatable product of a burger! The medium rare patties at Honest Burgers are well beyond medium rate. They’re huge and hunger-busting. I’m also a fan of the chips, which wisely come with all burger orders. Saves you a step for sure. Honest Burgers has a whole lot of stores across London so they’ve got an angle, and it’s proven successful so far.
