It’s all about burgers and meat at the moment with new burger joints popping up all over the place. We blame shows like Man Versus Food and general man type event Movember. But when we say blame that is not to be taken in a bad way, we are only too happy to have more meat options popping up, so happy in fact we decided to put together some of our favourites.
Bukowski Grill : Newly added to Boxpark and delivering fresh meaty burgers with fat crispy chips. Not only do you get to fill your face wil burger you get bottomless coffee and the chance to take a look about pop up mall Boxpark.
Meat Liquor : It’s all in the name really. Originating from the Meatwagon pop up that had people queueing around the block for big fat burgers Meat Liquor is a real man den, dark, dingy and full of meat stuffed buns, it’s a wonder naked chested women don’t serve them for you.
Bodeans : A classic that returns time and time again. Bodeans is in Soho and offeres burgers, ribs and pulled pork sandwiches that are all done with special Bodeans sauce that’s a sort of mixture between mayo, BBQ and prawn cocktail and in a word, amazing. Here you can also sign up for a Bodeans loyalty card that gets you something free with each visit like a shot or a pudding.
Grand Union : Somehow this feels like a healthier burger though we are not sure why. Stacked high and with options like the New Yorker that also includes pastrami and salami as well as gerkins they are hard to eat but isn’t that the point?
Big Red : This is a surprising one as it is a pub and food generally comes as an after thought with the cardboard folded sauce sachet holders that get dropped on the table after your order but don’t be fooled. This place does a GREAT burger. Good value, enormous, bad for you and brilliant with a B and an R cattle branded to the top of the bun.
The Diner : Sorry guys, your service is getting pretty shit and your burgers are a bit dry and weedy. last time we visited you even forgot our order completely!
Byron : We know this place gets praise and they do have some good random beers but in our burger eating opinion again the burgers are a bit dry and too tightly packed.
Tootsies : Again, failing for us.
So there you have it – our humble burger opinions. If you have any more to add stick it in the comments below – sharing if caring.
