There are several times when me and my fiancé passed by this burger restaurant, we noticed that people were queuing without fail. Me being me, the temptation and curiosity of trying the burgers increases every time we passed by! I mean, a restaurant that is constantly swarmed with people, it got me thinking: that burger must be damn good right? The thought of it was in my mind since my last trip here, last year. I didn’t get the chance to give it a try.
Few days ago, we’re back here and passed by that restaurant again, and boy, still! people were queuing! I told my fiancé that we HAVE to try! So finally, we took the plunge, we were in line with those people yesterday. Haha!
We waited about 35 minutes, it was freezing cold (5°C) and windy. But we still waited till it was our turn. THIS BURGER BETTER BE GOOD!!!
Patty & Bun is the name of the restaurant, it’s located at;
54, James St London W1U 1HE.
Just about 3 minutes walk from Bond Street Station.
It’s a small restaurant, hence they don’t take any reservation and they don’t take for 10 pax and above. It’s first come first serve basis.
After all that wait and shivering, we were seated and already feeling hungry. Let’s see if it’s worth the wait.
‘Ari Gold’ Cheeseburger – beef patty, cheese, lettuce, tomato, pickled onions, ketchup, Smokey P&B mayo, brioche. £7.50
Omaigod. I’m already drooling.
‘Smokey Robinson’ burger – Beef patty, cheese, tomato, lettuce, mounds of caramelised onions, ketchup, Smokey P&B mayo, brioche. £8.50.
IT IS THE JUICIEST BURGER EVER!!!
Even my fiancé who is a fan of burgers, couldn’t agree more!
You know what, it was so good that I don’t mind queuing again. I’m the type of person who rarely finish my meal whenever we eat outside and always had to make it to go. Surprisingly, I actually finished it. Burger that size, usually will taste ‘jelak’ half way, but this one, was PERFECT! And it wasn’t dry like any other burger out there. Burger bakar? Nigga please. It was cooked medium rare which make it JUICYYYYYYYYY BABEYHHHHH!
Man, I don’t mind having one now as we speak!
And oh, we also ordered sides, which was ‘Winger Winger Chicken Dinner’. Smoked confit wings with BBQ sauce and spring onions £5.50.
It was also good, the sauce was thick and creamy. (Blurred picture coz we couldn’t wait any longer!)
After I finished my burger, I actually can take one more. Can you believe it? But I decided not to because I’ve been eating TOO much the moment I arrived London. All I did was eat and be a potato couch. Dammit! I don’t know if it’s the weather or I simply love to eat. haha
We didn’t really get to snap pictures inside of the restaurant because we were kinda hungry that we ordered our meals the moment we sat down. Secondly, we were cramped between other customers and our layers of coats. Lastly, this kind of small restaurant with people queuing for it, you basically have to leave ASAP after you’re done. Eat & Go.
We will definitely go again and try the rest that is on the menu like the ‘Lambshank Redemption’ burger.
My oh my.
I ate so much that I feel guilty and went for a jog the next day. 30 minutes later, I went back home coz I was freezing to death. Haha.
