Burger Wars Episode XX: And the best burger goes to…

I can’t believe I have been in 20 different places eating burgers around London trying to find the perfect one. I have had good moments, huge disappointment, but overall the ride has been great.

The Place

The Contenders

This time I rejoin forces with my friend Carla, she’s basically guilty for pushing me to have a blog and to write about finding the best burger, so in my mind it’s a huge coincidence if I find the perfect one with her, you know the she started / she ended paradox.

Beef Dripping Chips

The place Hawksmoor, I tried a previous time to get to one of their two restaurants and they weren’t serving food by the time I got to the place. This time we went to the Covent Garden restaurant Seven Dials. The place was fully booked but as we only wanted the burger, the bar was just fine for us to have drinks and eat their contestants.

Hawksmoor Hamburger

Basicaly three burgers, the first one Hawksmoor Hamburger with small nuggets of bone marrow, lettuce, red onions, tomato, pickles, and ogleshield cheese or colston bassett stiltlon. The second one Burger Van Burger, with slow cooked onions, and ogleshield cheese. And last but not least the Kimchi Burger, which is a cheese burger with Kimchi, which is basically a traditional Korean fermented vegetables dish.

Kimchi Burger

Carla went for the Kimchi and I couldn’t resist the bone marrow so Hawksmoor was my option, for a weird reason both wanted to try the other burger so we decided to cut them in half a share the flavour. To join the burgers beef dripping chips and a beer.

The verdict, AWESOME!!! I sincerely doubt I will find a better burger than these two we tried in the place, the Hawksmoor is amazing, the bone marrow and stiltlon another dimension, but the Kimchi is even better, a spicy flavour thanks to the fermented Korean recipe, just unbelievable. The fries perfectly cooked crispy outside, soft inside, and the flavour amazing, just spotless.

The damage, 15 quids for the burger with chips

The conclusion, by far the best burger I have had in my life, as my friend Luna says “The Fork is strong in this one Master”. Even Carla said she’s going to marry the Kimchi burger, I’m still going to check the remaining places but pretty much game over. In my scale a solid 10 for Hawksmoor, best burger and perfect chips so far.

This game over reminds me the Seinfeld episode “The Contest”.

Elaine: Hello
George: You caved?!
Jerry: It's over?
George: You're out?
Jerry: Ohh-my-God. The Queen is dead.
George: I figured you'd cruise. At least through the Spring.
Jerry: What happened?
Elaine: It was, uh? John-John.
Jerry and George: Ohhhhh! John-John.
