London is a hub of excellent food from 5* a la carte restaurants to street eats, but hidden away throughout the city are three extra special restaurants that deserve a visit and will definitely have you coming back for more.
Whatever your topping preference, everyone’s favourite quick bite is back and meaning serious business. Once associated with greasy fast food joints and chargrilled BBQs in the sunshine, the humble hamburger has experienced a rejuvenation of late, so here’s where we feel the best places are to chow down.
Bryon opened back in 2007 and is now one of London’s leading restaurants. The vision behind the joint is simple – serve proper hamburgers the way they should be. With three locations across the city; Charing Cross, Haymarket and The Strand, drop by and try the infamous namesake, the Byron Burger. Bacon, cheese and homemade sauce – it’s not one to disappoint!
Patty and Bun
With a promise of no-nonsense food, Patty and Bun is frills-free but full of flavour. What initially started out as a pop-up stall has grown into a successful business and the chain now boasts two locations in the city. Tucked away on James Street and Liverpool Street respectively, the burger joint is a cult-favourite and you will leave with a suitably full stomach after your visit!
It’s the American export that headed to our shores in sight of a new fan base and set up camp in London before spreading its wings throughout the rest of the UK. Five Guys is not to be missed and with queues spanning the streets outside of the Covent Garden and Islington branches, it’s worth the wait.
With so much to see and do in the city, why not extend your trip and stay the night at one of London’s Shaftesbury Hotels? They are the perfect base to explore the city in style.
