Burgers and Ice Cream

Tuesday, 24 March 2015

If you are looking for the best steak in London then you need look no further because Hawksmoor is the place to sink your teeth into a fine cut of beef.

If however you are looking for the best burger in London then you are facing a much bigger challenge. Around 12 months ago, Sammy and I took it upon ourselves to hunt down this burger and we strive to continue in our mission. So far the winner is Patty and Bun.

Hawksmoor has always been high on our burger hit list so we booked a lunch time slot at their Seven Dials branch and took Robert along for the ride.

Hawksmoor has an old fashioned feel with dark wood, leather furnishings and smartly dressed staff.

When you are out with Sammy and Robert the first decision is always what cocktail to have.

Served strong and manly looking. Grrrr....

After a frantic natter, including an in-depth debrief of my night out at a sleazy salsa club, we got down to the serious business of ordering.

Two juicy cheese burgers for the girls.

With deef dripping fries for Sammy and triple cooked chips for me.

Bone marrow for Robert,

...with a side of macaroni cheese.

Sad news: The burger was a bit of a soggy mess for us, it was literally dripping down our arms. Only to be eaten with a knife and fork which is not how a burger should be eaten. 

The macaroni cheese was delicious and addictive.

If you are in town and looking for a steak then definitely head to Hawksmoor, they have a huge wine selection to suit every taste,

and massive juicy steaks to choose fresh from a board. Sammy had her eye on the 900g Porterhouse!

After lunch, we made the most of London's bright blue skies and went for a stroll around Soho with a quick detour to Gelupo for ice cream.

Decorated like an old school ice cream parlour, Gelupo offers adventurous ice cream and gelato flavours which taste fantastic.

How good does that look? Ricotta and sour cherry! You can lick the screen...I won't judge. Ok maybe I will a little bit.

Two very happy customers!

Next time the sun is out in London, get yourself down to Gelupo to try it for yourself. You won't be disappointed.
