After sampling pretty much most of the top burger bars in London, I still hadn’t been to Patty & Bun (I know terrible isn’t it). Yesterday evening however this situation was rectified. Based just off Bond Street in Central London Patty & Bun has a no reservation policy and is described as the ‘unique burger experience.’
We headed down just before 6pm and managed to get a table straight away, we were very lucky, considering as soon as we got our seats a queue starting emerging.
Straight onto the food, each burger is packed with toppings and have cool names such as the ‘Ari Gold’, ‘Smokey Robinson’ and ‘Jose Jose’. I was torn between the Ari Gold and Smokey Robinson but in the end went for the Smokey. This includes beef patty, cheese, tomato, lettuce, caramelised onions, bacon, ketchup, Smokey P&B Mayo topped with a Brioche bun. Phew! That was a mouthful just describing.
All burgers are cooked Medium Rare unless otherwise stated. Mine was really delicious and full of flavour. The only criticism I had was it was a little sweet which I think came from the caramelised onion, but that’s just my personal preference. Next time I’ll try the Ari Gold as it doesn’t have this.
Danny opted for the daily special which was packed with guacamole, salsa, wahaca cheese and spicy red pickles. It was gone in a matter of minutes! We shared chips and this was plenty between two people.
I definitely enjoyed Patty & Bun, the meat tasted good quality, it was cooked really well and the choices of toppings are great. It is on the small side for a burger bar/restaurant so choose your timings wisely so you don’t have to queue or if you fancy it, opt for the takeaway service.
