If you like burger and food markets, you can’t miss Bleecker St. at Spitalfields Market. There are just a few tables and you’ll be eating in the food-stall periphery of the market, so don’t expect much of comfort. Also if it is a weekend expect it to be really busy. The beef patty is juicy, succulent and cooked medium rare, and it is complemented by Bleecker’s ‘secret sauce’. Not forgetting the slice of cheese on top that is always melted perfectly. The standard “Bacon cheeseburger” will be plenty for most people. The “Angry Fries” is a must! And to make your meal even better, order the Oreo milkshake as well. Locations: Spitalfields Market, Victoria and Southbank.
Honest Burgers is deserving of its place on one of the best burgers on the London list as it delivers a cracking British burger experience. Outstanding aged meat from The Ginger Pig, a toasted demi-brioche bun, mature cheddar and onion jam, combine to create a great burger experience. After the rosemary salt chips, normal fries will never be enough again. They also have the “Market Vegetable Fritter”, a veggie option Indian-inspired melee of cauliflower, tomato, shallots, coriander and cucumber yogurt. Locations: Camden Town, Liverpool St., Soho, Covent Garden and more.
Shake Shack burger
The classic “ShackBurger” melts in your mouth, accompanied by a blast of flavor.The cheese is melted perfectly over the patty, topped with a Shack Sauce that tastes mysterious but delicious! If you are vegetarian you have to try the “Shake Shake’s ‘Shroom burger”, which is a portobello mushroom filled with melted muenster and cheddar cheeses, deep-fried to melty perfection, topped with tomato, lettuce and the Shack’s secret sauce, inside a brioche bun. The “Cheese Fries” are crispy and not greasy at all, and the milkshakes are really creamy and outstanding. Locations: Covent Garden, Tottenham Court Road, Leicester Square and more.
Five guys is much more about what goes on the burger than what goes into the burger. Lettuce, pickle, grilled onions, grilled mushrooms, jalapeño peppers, hot sauce, green peppers, mustard – infinitude of toppings! If you are not sure what you want, you can always go for the “all the way” option. The fries, hmmm the fries. So crispy! The milkshakes are a show apart. You can mix the flavours however you want. You definitely should try Oreo with Peanut Butter Milkshake, is like heaven in a paper cup! You can also go for a non bun option. Which means your burger will come wrapped in lettuce leaves.Locations: Covent Garden, Tottenham Court Road, Oxford Circus and more.
