[Review] The Playboy Club Burger at Salvatore's Bar

I'd been invited to try out the burger at The Playboy Club at Salvatore's Bar, which has undergone a refurbishment and renaissance from it's 'Dining Room' days and their £40 Hef burger, to become Salvatore's Bar, ostensibly the same restaurant but with a more laid back lounge-feel complete with big armchairs, corner sofas and scatter cushions.
The Playboy Club itself is sitauted in Mayfair in a building of glass and steel on Old Park Lane. Outside, the slowly changing rainbow of neon lights rotate, like an out of town casino, and subtle bunnies are etched onto the windows. It feels out of kilter with its surroundings, and it's grander neighbours on Park Lane. Entry to The Club is via a couple of big bouncers and a plush reception area where several bunnies greet you, kitted out in full ears, tail and leotard. We dumped coats and were ushered through to Salvatore's Bar (open to both members and non-members) to try a selection of items from their new American-themed menu, including the burger...

[Burger News] 2,015 Burgers being given away at Ben's Canteen.

Two thousand and fifteen burgers are being given away by Clapham Junction's neighbourhood restaurant Ben's Canteen.

Want one? Then get down for Brunch or dinner by NYE, and ask for your burger voucher, and you can redeem it at any time during January 2015. Ben's have a bit of a history of delivering decent burgers, and what's more they also serve Meantime lager on tap, and mix one of the best Bloody Mary's in London, so don't miss out on some great food and booze - particularly when you get the burger free!

[Burger News] McDonalds relaunch the McRib burger in the UK 2014

It's happening, and soon. McDonald's are relaunching the McRib burger in the UK after a 12 year hiatus.

The McRib is one of McDonald's most requested items in the UK, and so for 5 weeks, from 31 December 2014, it's back on menus for hardcore fans to get stuck into. 

For those not in the loop (or who can't remember the joy of the McRib before BBQ became fashionable in the UK) the McRib burger comprises a wedge of pork shoulder, formed into a spare rib like rack (from RSPCA freedom pork) drenched in a tangy and sweet BBQ sauce, topped with sweet onion and pickles (because everything has to have pickles, right, all wrapped up in a floury, toasted sub roll.  

It's available for £2.69 from 10:30 am on New Year's Eve 2014.

From my standpoint as (possibly) London's longest serving burger blogger - or at least the longest serving burger blogger who is still reviewing and posting updates on the burgers I eat - I'm calling 2014 "The year Of Expansion".

[Review] Vivat Bacchus Black Label Burger

Vivat Bacchus is a bit of a city institution. The wine bar slash restaurant opened in Farringdon back in 2003 and whilst run by restaurateurs from New World wine nation South Africa, it takes its inspiration from the Old World with a rustic feel with stripped wooden floors, and an open, airy restaurant.
They've recently put a new burger on their lunch and dinner menu, and so when visiting for a swift lunchtime warmer of red, I decided to give it a Hamburger Me! once over.
