Hello, my name's Burger Me!, and I like burgers.

There, I've said it. It's nothing to be ashamed of. In fact, I celebrate that, in the UK, we're finally beginning to 'get' burgers. I reckon, conservatively, I munch around 80-100 burgers a year, not all get blogged, not all are enjoyed, but I eat them nonetheless (the Cheeseburger in a Can is an example of the latter) as a public service to a massively supportive audience who just want good burgers.

What started as a favoured menu option in the pub has evolved, over time, and following one fateful, drunken lunchtime into this London burger blog. 

Burgers across London, whether found in chains, restaurants, pop-ups, on the street or at supper clubs, are rated with my '5 Burger Criteria' and given a rating out of /10.

Burger Me! is my London Burger Blog, and I hope you enjoy it!

My Burger Rating Criteria

As I undertake my voyage of burger discovery across London, I have developed 5 criteria for rating any burger I consume. The combination of these elements will feed into my overall score for the meal. I have purposely broken down the elements of the burger into its constituent parts, so each component is looked at in detail as, and I am sure you will agree, a burger is only as good as the sum of its parts!

The Ratings:

Any burger that gets a rating is rated out of 10. The score is derived from the criteria below, and awarded a burger ranking from 1 to 10 out of 10:

The Burger Me! full range of burger awards
Occasionally there is an outstanding burger, and that gains a heady Meat Win medal (and check out my range of Meat Win clothing):
Or even the Bun Win accolade:

But what happens if the meat is terrible, well that earns the best avoided medal, Meat Fail:
And, of course, there's the equivalent for a badly thought out bun, Bun Fail:
So what are the criteria I'll be using?

Presentation: This rates how the burger is presented on the plate. Is the layout well thought out, how are the burger and bun presented, and how is it accessorised?

Toppings: Toppings are very important in the hunt for the perfect burger. Is the salad crisp or limp, how melted is the cheese, how fatty is the bacon, is the egg overcooked? No matter what the burger is topped with, it is rated for how well it combines with the meat.

Bread: The bun is the all too often overlooked aspect of a burger. Sadly most restaurants see this as an afterthought, but I rate on how well the bread stays together, how fresh it is, and how dry/moist it is, as well as its squashability, and how well it retains the burger juice.
Meat: Obviously the core of any good burger is the meat that goes into it. I'll be rating how its cooked, consistency, flavour, quality, and taste. Mmmm...meat!

Plate Accessories: The final element of the burger criteria is how the plate is accessorised. I rate how good the chips are, the range of salad, and the portion size.All of these elements lead me to an overall score, which is rated out of /10, so consume, digest and be sated on my London burger blog. Oh and check out my list of the best burgers in London as well.

Remember I'm doing this for you!


I use advertising on this blog as it helps subsidise my burger habit.

Burger Me! has a unique readership (online and via social media) that has grown really quickly through my reviews, word of mouth sharing, and good search engine visibility.

The result is an intimate and highly-engaged readership Londoners, and further-afielders, who not only value the recommendations Burger Me! provides, but who also act on them.

I'm happy to work with premium brands keen to engage with my core readership, and can generate buzz and impact in ways that larger websites (with a less discerning and less engaged audience) are unable to do.

I can offer a range of engagement options whether this be through advertising on the website, through social media, product reviews (these will, of course, be impartial), and a number of other options.

Please don't hesitate to get in touch if you have a campaign or project that you'd like to work with me on: burgermelondon[at]gmail.com, @hamburgerme, or www.facebook.com/burgerme.
