Top 5: Burgers in London

  • Patty & Bun

    With three sites under their belt and the fourth about to launch (on Redchurch street), you know these guys are the real deal. The new Shoreditch site, alongside classics such as Ari Golds and Jose Jose Chilli burgers, will feature moreish new additions such as cheese fritters with buttermilk dip and fried potato soft eggs with chicken mayo and salt. Plus, there’ll be a bar downstairs with fast flowing cocktails and beats.

  • Chuck Burger

    Having made a name for themselves selling burgers from a converted Chevy Step Van at Street Feast’s Hawker House, Chuck Burger has launched its permanent site.  Expect several favourites (including the spicy Devil Burger, a ground 28-day aged chuck steak patty topped with charred jalapenos, American cheese, grilled red onions, sriracha mayo, and green jalapeno sauce), new burgers (such as the Seoul Burger, a crispy buttermilk fried chicken burger with Korean hot sauce and kimchi slaw) all rounded off with buffalo wings and loaded fries. And breathe.

  • Lucky Chip Burgers and Wine Dalston

    Lucky Chip Burgers and Wine Dalston, the first permanent site for street food burger favourites and, interestingly, like the other Dalston openings of late, a more grown-up offering. Aside from burgers, there are a selection of small and large plates such as 54 day-aged rib-eye steak and chicken parmigiana, a Friday night tasting menu, and an extensive wine list of over 100 bins, plus cocktails, bourbons and ryes.

  • Honest Burgers

    We love the Brixton original, but all the other sites (14 in total) also have us drooling. Classic burgers, rosemary-salted chips and veg fritters are all time faves. But if you want to go all out, head in for the ‘Honest Brunch’ and don’t hold back.

  • Dip and Flip

    Patty melts,  rosti burgers, soft brioche bun burgers….all dipped in gravy, sound good? Then head straight to Dip and Flip. Now with four locations under their belt (Brixton, Tooting, Wimbledon and Battersea) lines form for their gravy, french dips and burgers. A tip? Don’t hold back on the sides.
