Review: Patty and Bun

Another day, another burger. London shows no signs of giving up the burger trend any time soon. Determined to carb load before watching the London Marathon, we opted to visit one of the originals Patty and Bun. This is my third time to the burger joint and each time is just as good as the last. The Liverpool Street branch is small but cosy and service is uber quick. You don't have to wait long to stuff your face! It's situated just outside the station next to Macdonalds - this is a much better shout if you're in need of a foodie fix. Simply walk up to the counter, give your name and take a seat.

We both opted for the delicious Smokey Robinson. A toasted brioche bun is stuffed with a juicy medium-rare beef patty, gooey cheese, tomato, lettuce, oodles of sweet caramelised onions, crispy bacon, ketchup and a tasty special smoked sauce. It's a beast that requires two hands to bite into. It's also a beast that requires lots of napkins to wipe up the mess it makes! The bun held all the glorious juices and the bacon was the perfect accompaniment to the smokey sauce. The rosemary skin-on chips were extremely moreish and were a good mixture of crispy and soft chips.

It makes my top three burgers in London - no mean feat!

  1. So many gorgeous looking burger places have opened since I left London and I'm yet to try any of them. A lot of people have told me that out of all of them Patty and Bun is the best - it looks amazing! It's definitely going to stay at the top of my list of places to try!

  2. Patty & Bun is my favourite burger in the UK closely followed by Got Beef in Cardiff. There''s always a huge queue when I walk past any though. Drooling at my desk now x

  3. Waaa, that first time we went for Aisling's birthday is one of my favourite moments in life. P&B is easily my top burger and the Smokey Robinson is my favourite too (: missin' you Sophie xx

  4. Why have I not been back to P&B since like, 2 years ago?! I was too terrified of the marathon to property enjoy the carb-loading, sad times! x

  5. That BLT burger sounds delicious - especially knowing P&B's very high standards!
