World Burger Day by Paloma Lacy – South London News

It’s often the popular choice for people’s last meal on earth so little wonder there’s an official day to mark it. Yesterday was National Burger Day and here’s our round up of the best around this year in London.

Down at The Blues Kitchen in Brixton, enjoy 50 per cent off the burger menu every Sunday.

New additions include the Bacon Double Smash Burger and Smoked Brisket Burger – a 220g grass fed brisket patty smoked under hickory, seared on the flat top for a caramelised finish, and served with house BBQ sauce, a mustard Carolina sauce, pickled chillies, crispy beer battered onion rings, and finished with smoked applewood cheese.

40 Acre Lane, London SW2 5SP.

Looking for a more unusual choice, 100 Queen’s Gate’s the Belgian-inspired Waffle Burger is valid until tomorrow.

Take your pick from; Waffle Beef Burger with melted smoked cheddar; Waffle Spicy Breaded Chicken Burger with Sriracha mayonnaise; Waffle Grilled Halloumi and Falafel Burger with chimichurri sauce (v) and Waffle Beetroot Patty Burger with vegan cheese (vg).

Visitors who post on Instagram will receive a complimentary Belgian beer and dessert waffle.

The ultimate for surf and turf lovers is Burger & Lobster, which exists to satisfy the hunger of those who can’t quite decide between the two, and the combos will blow the greedy mind. Roll Combo includes an original lobster roll and 5oz burger, served with fries and salad.

A B&L Combo (burger and lobster) includes half or whole lobster and a 5oz burger but sounds like a lot of food. For the next few days, the restaurant is serving an epic dish that combines surf and turf in a bun.

As culinary collaborations go, this one’s a winner.

Renowned chef, James Cochran, created the Beef Shin Lobster Roll and its proving very popular. 24hr slow-cooked beef shin is loaded into a sub-shaped brioche roll, topped with dressed wild lobster, pickles and a gooey lobster cheese sauce, crispy shallots and parsley. It’s unctuous, decadent and downright luxurious.

Best of all is Cochran’s scotch bonnet jam, which makes for the best dipping sauce to plunge fries into. The only disappointing thing is that it’ll soon be off the menu, so grab it while it lasts.
