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!
