Burgers, Etc Restaurants in Shoreditch
1. The Duck Truck Burgers, etc restaurant in Spitalfields Lamb Street - E1
“Mouthwateringly delicious duck” – “not just wraps”, but other dishes such as confit duck, pulled duck or duck steaks in a brioche bun – win a massive thumbs-up for this “unusual, quirky and quite unique” street-food star, permanently parked up by Spitalfields Market. “Best chips I’ve eaten in a very long time… and the duck is pretty good too!”
2. MEATliquor Shoreditch Burgers, etc restaurant in Shoreditch 14-15 Hoxton Market - N1
“The messiest, most delicious burgers ever; and a good selection of craft beers as well” – still the deal at this “hip” spin-off from the Meatliquor group, which brings the worship of meat to an old Christian missionary building (complete with stained glass windows and illuminated ceiling).
3. Haché Burgers, etc restaurant in Shoreditch 147-149 Curtain Rd - EC2
“Still some of the best burgers around”, say fans of this French group, whose Gallic je ne sais quoi lends a certain superiority to the offering, while service is “friendly and speedy”. Its seventh outlet opened in Kingston early in 2019, at a time when rival mid-market operators were struggling.
4. Burger & Beyond Burgers, etc restaurant in Hackney 147 Shoreditch High Street - E1
“Some of the best burgers in London” – including a “sublime, fried, hot fish burger” and “a real vegetarian burger (that isn’t pretending to be anything other than a real, delicious vegetarian burger)” – make it well worth discovering this hip new Shoreditch diner. When it comes to going ‘beyond’, “some of the tapas style starters are worth trying too” (cauliflower cheese balls, fried chicken bites…)
5. Black Bear Burger Burgers, etc restaurant in Hackney Boxpark Shoreditch, 2-10 Bethnal Green Road - E1
“Amazing and well-considered burgers, plus delicious, crunchy chips” help win very high ratings for this pop-up brand, which has now graduated to Boxpark Shoreditch. The backstory works well: one of the founders grew up on a Devon beef farm: all meat is sourced from the south west from native breeds that are grass-fed and dry-aged on the bone; bacon is from outdoor-bred pigs in the east of England…
6. Patty and Bun Burgers, etc restaurant in Shoreditch 36 Redchurch Street - E2
There’s “clear blue water between Patty & Bun and other wannabe mass burger offerings” – the only drawback is “you have to queue all the time”. Having started out as a pop-up, the small chain has grown to eight branches and two spin-offs: Smash Patty and Jefferies, a chicken specialist. The core of the offer is “burgers dripping in all the good stuff, loud tunes, friendly vibes and lots of napkins”. Top Tip – the “legendary lamb burger always makes me smile”.
7. Bodean’s American restaurant in City 201 City Rd - EC1
“A nice, laid-back American buzz” has helped win a loyal following over the years for this small chain of Kansas City-style diners: one of the first in London to bring BBQ indoors. “It’s a fun place” (in the right mood) and the food is “decent” and in man-sized portions, but “not particularly special”.
8. Dirty Burger Shoreditch Burgers, etc restaurant in Shoreditch 13 Bethnal Green Rd - E1
“High-quality burgers” hit the spot at this funky small chain which “does the simple things well”. The outlets are “fab for families and kids – there’s something for everyone and puddings are a great crowd-pleaser”.
9. Hawksmoor Steaks & grills restaurant in Shoreditch 157 Commercial St - E1
Huw Gott and Will Beckett “do the ‘casual excellence’ thing very well indeed” and their still über-fashionable steakhouse chain (founded in 2006) occupies a niche in the hearts of London’s fooderati like no other, with its “distinctly clubby” (“big, loud and busy”) style, its “to-die-for cocktails” and its “top steaks”: British-bred and “char-grilled to perfection over wood fires, with deliciously indulgent sides”. Ratings for such a phenomenon have sometimes seemed middling in comparison to its renown – a reflection of the very full pricing that’s always been their policy. That said, despite some accusations that “it’s all gone downhill in recent times”, its grades actually bounced back significantly in the last survey, and remain in line with its past best. The City branch in particular shines. “Dark dens and out-of-this-world quality beef are the cornerstones of dealmaking. What deal would not reach a happy ending fuelled by a perfectly cooked rib-eye, grilled bone marrow, and beef dripping fries?”
