Remember that time I ate five burgers in one day? Course you don’t. I do though, my jeans still don’t fit.
That was National Burger Day 2013, a very exciting new day created by the people behind Mr Hyde. NBD is celebrated in two ways – either attending a massive outdoor burger event in London, or heading to one of these delicious restaurants for a 20% discount on their burgers. Following the event last year, I reviewed all the burgers in the most sensible way possible – with Bruce Springsteen songs.
Unfortunately (Sad Eyes) at this year’s event I didn’t get to try as many burgers. But the ones I did get to were Magic…
The first – and probably the best – was from Breddos, two lovable chaps serving up delicious sliders – the below is a beef and bone marrow patty with smoked chipotle short rib. It. Was. Brilliant.
Thanks to the grey August weather and numerous beers, the picture quality quickly went down hill. But I went on to try a pineapple jam burger from Disco Bistro, a very rich cheesy burger from Le Bun, and an Indian street kitchen take on a burger from Roti Chai.
One burger I didn’t get to was the pizza burger special from Bleecker St Burger. I can’t direct you to a post about Bleecker St on here, which is unforgivably slack because Zan (The Boss of Bleecker) serves up one of the best, if not THE best, cheeseburger in London. More on that soon.
National Burger Day will be back again next year, keep an eye on the site for details.
