Now I'm pretty sure that Patty & Bun isn't a place that needs any introduction, so I guess it's enough to say that it's pretty darn good. After seeing countless foodie snaps on Instagram over the past year or so, Patty & Bun has been on my London (restaurant) hit-list. Last week we managed to get ourselves to the James Street branch - a little hole in the wall - before the dinner rush and finally got a taste of what everyone's been talking about.
Between the three of us we ordered a smokey robinson burger, a buttermilk fried chicken burger, wings and the rosemary fries. Now let me start by saying that everything we ordered was good. Like seeeriously good. Extra vowels for emphasis.
The wings were deeelish - sticky and sweet and crunchy. And such a good deal at £5.50 for 9. We didn't finish these as we were utterly stuffed so we got to take these home and make them last even longer.
Now onto the burgers...
Just look at that. The smokey robinson was just SO good. Easily one of the best burgers I've had in London (here's looking at you Bleecker St.). The combo of the juicy medium-rare patty with cheese, heaps of caramelised onions and the smokey mayo was perfectly complimented by the brioche bun.
And whilst we're at it. Check out the chicken burger - obviously my sister was a little too impatient to let me take a better picture. But I don't blame her. The buttermilk chicken was crispy and tender and went so well with the asian slaw. So much good.
Although our little trip totally destroyed any concept of healthy eating I tried to maintain this week, it was completely worth it. If any of you are local, or visiting London, I would definitely recommend popping in - but definitely get in there early. You wouldn't want to be waiting for this!
