MEATMarket: The Super Fatty Patty burger

I'm late to this party. But I'd like to think I'm fashionably late. Let me introduce you to a burger created by Ross Shonan from BoneDaddies in collaboration with MEATMarket - the Super Fatty Patty.

I'll be honest, it's one helluva burger and, aside from the 'dirty burger' style of delivery, it's unlike any other burger on the MEATMarket menu.

London Burger News - November 2014

Here's your round up of the the latest London burger news for November 2014.

Shake Shack special burger

On Sunday, November 9th, Shake Shack Covent Garden is dishing up a limited edition burger collaboration with acclaimed chef, and winner of three Michelin stars, Massimo Bottura.

Shake Shack’s limited edition burger—The Emilia (£8.25), named after the Emilia-Romagna region of Italy—was masterfully crafted by Chef Bottura and Shake Shack culinary director Mark Rosati. It features a custom-blend 100% Aberdeen Angus beef patty ground with cotechino sausage and parmigiano reggiano, topped with salsa verde and Villa Manodori balsamic mayonnaise made with Chef Bottura’s Villa Manodori Artigianale balsamic vinegar from Trebbiano grapes grown in Italy. Buon appetito!

Only 500 of The Emilia burgers will be served—available on a first-come, first-served basis from 11am on Sunday when Shake Shack opens.

Wild Game Co. Venison Burger

The Wild Game Co. have just launched their first stand alone pop-up on London’'s Charlotte Street. Diners can enjoy the finest wild venison and game, sourced directly from the Scottish Highlands, with an array of delicious burgers and salads featured on the menu in a rustic setting.

They'll have a regularly changing and reasonably priced seasonal menu, importantly which will include the 'Veni-Moo' Burger - consisting two patties, one Venison and one Beef, with melted Cheese, Beef Bacon and the Wild Game Co. Sauce,

Wild Game Co. founder is Andy Waugh, who hails from just north of Inverness, and all the meat used is sourced and then butchered with care by his family’s game-butchering business, which has been in existence for over 30 years. His team were 2012 winners of ‘Street Food of the Year’ at The Young British Foodies Awards, and were voted by The Evening Standard as one of the top five places to eat game in London.

Le Bun Residency at The Three Compasses, Dalston

French American street food outfit Le Bun have kicked off their residency at The Three Compasses pub in Dalston, and they have created a bespoke menu that smashes classic French cuisine into American diner style food at high speed. There's no French road block going to stop these guys.

Byron Hamburgers Christmas Special

Byron's next special, the Holy Cheesemas, will be available at a Byron restaurant near you from 11th November to 5th January. It's a festive double bacon cheeseburger fit for a king, with not only two 6oz patties, but double helpings of bacon and quadruple helpings of cheese.

Byron’s Head Chef, Fred Smith, explains: “Cheesemas has become an annual tradition for us, and for its third outing I wanted to take an already ridiculously indulgent burger up a notch. There was really only one way to go, and that was to add even more cheese – and bacon.”

Holy Cheesemas features two 6oz patties, four kinds of cheese – mature Cheddar, American, Red Leicester and Monterey Jack – plus two rashers of dry cure bacon, red onion, shredded iceberg, sliced pickles and Cheesemas sauce, all inside a classic glazed bun. It's on the menu for £12.95.

For those that remember last year's Christmas efforts, the Triple Cheesemas, this is a step up amount of cheese AND ups the ante with bacon. Not for those with gout, methinks!

Meantime Monday's at Ben's Canteen

Those friendly fellows at Ben's Canteen have teamed up with Meantime to make Mondays at the Canteen all about Burgers and Schooners.

The Ryanair in-flight cheeseburger

Just when you think you've hit rock bottom in the burger stakes - as I did back in 2011 when I boiled (yes BOILED, my friends) and ate the cheeseburger in a can - along comes another challenge to assault the senses...the Ryanair in-flight cheeseburger.

Honky Tonk Burger, London

Honky Tonk is a London-based chain of two American diner-style restaurants with branches in both Clapham and Mayfair. It follows the cookie cutter trend of stripped wooden floors, matte black painted walls with chalked quotes, and exposed filament bulbs hanging from the ceiling that have long been trending for a while. There's also a cupboard/door behind which more seating can be found, which is stolen directly from Callooh Callay (with even a Narnia quote above it, in case you didn't 'get' it).

I had been given a voucher for food, and so tried out a few items on the menu, as well as the all important burger.

[Review] Bukowski Grill burgers at Boxpark Shoreditch

Bukowski Grill is one of those places that's been around for ages, but I've always had better options and somehow never managed to go. It's located in Boxpark in Shoreditch, a retail park made up of fitted out and customised shipping containers situated between Shoreditch, Hoxton and Liverpool Street.

The Burger Democracy - voting for the best burger in London

Andy Shora is a developer at a Digital Agency in London, and has seen his fair share of arguments at work, and further afield, over which burger can be given the accolade of "Best in London". So he built an app to democratize the debate: The City Awards, London.


Andy: " I wanted to put all these opinions together, only taking into account people's number one choice, and having got frustrated with the traditional mass-review-style sites, I wanted to build something really fun to use which would be quick and easy for customers sitting at burger joints to vote for their favourite."

So it's a burger democracy - ultimately with the aim being to build a map of London's favourite places, voted for by the people who live there. It's been built to be mobile and touch-friendly, so you can still use it with a greasy screen...I know I get carried away sometimes.

Andy's favourite is Patty & Bun, who are topping the charts at the moment - so if you agree or disagree - get voting! At the end of the year the winning venue will be presented with a physical trophy which they can show off with pride!
