It’s a burger review! This time I will take you to Patty and Bun, which is located behind Selfridges London and a few minutes walk from Bond Street tube station. This is another place that you can expect a queue for a table. Yes, it is that popular with what was a street food start off! Even at 8pm on a Tuesday we were queuing for a table of two, but lucky it was only for about 1o-15 minutes. However, bare in mind that the shop itself is small.
The menu is simple with six different selection of burgers. For those who do not eat beef, within these selection there are a crispy chicken, a lamb and a portobella mushroom for the vegetarian.
We had the ‘Smokey Robison’ burger (£8.50) consisting of a beef patty, cheese, tomato, lettuce, caramelised onions, bacon, ketchup, smokey P&B mayo in a brioche bun.
I ordered the Portobello ‘Dig It’ Mushroom burger, which is the vegetarian option. This was a brioche bun consisting of a Portobello mushroom with garlic parsley butter, cheese, slaw, buttermilk baby courgette (tempura courgette), picked onions, lettuce and tarragon mayo.
It is one dirty burger because you will have juice and sauce dripping as you bite in to the burger. Do not expect to have clean fingers! You might want to lick them if you have ordered a side of ‘Winger Winger Chicken dinner’ (£5) which is the smoked chicken wings with BBQ sauce and spring onions. It is a side dish that I recommend because it is delicious. The meat just dropped off the bone and is covered in a divined BBQ sauce. I just could come here for their chicken wings then their burger.
The burgers itself does not come with any sides, so you can separately order a House Salad (£2.50), Coleslaw (£3) or Chips with Rosemary salt (£2.50).
Overall, Patty and Bun was nice but to me it is a “dirty burger” so I did feel guilty having one after doing an hour of aerobics. In my opinions, I preferred the burgers at Honest Burger then Patty and Bun. Although, the chips with rosemary salt at Patty and Bun was better since it was less salty. Either way, each place have their own uniqueness and customers.
