Hamburgers, a history

For a food that’s undeniably one of the most eaten on the planet, surprisingly little is known about the roots of the humble hamburger in terms of who was the first to put the meat between two buns, though this doesn’t exactly make much of a difference for burger restaurants in London. What we and, we’re assuming, most of London’s burger restaurants do know is that it’s a common misconception to say the first hamburger came from Hamburg in Germany. It’s true that Hamburg was and perhaps still is famous for the quality of its beef, but the sandwich concept that makes the hamburger so accessible wasn’t invented there. That concept came from somewhere in those old United States of America, but nobody truly knows when or where.

    London’s burger restaurants today

    Although we can’t fully understand the burger’s past, its present is very much thriving in the burger restaurants of London. Said by some to be the capital of the world, of course, after its birth in the USA, the burger very quickly made its way to London, and today you’ll find London’s burger restaurants as holes in the wall, stands by the road, fast food joints or elegant, Michelin-starred affairs. The creativity and diversity of burger restaurants in London is second to none. They make burgers fit for any budget, they customise them to fit with ever changing food trends, and some even make them with the finest meats that you’ll find anywhere, including Hamburg.

    Sometimes you gotta keep it classic

    After all of that we’re sure you’ll be unsurprised to hear that your choice of burger restaurants in London is vast. Huge. Possibly daunting. As such, we’d say the best approach is to break it down by what type of burger you fancy, and sometimes you just gotta keep things classic. So, for a seasoned beef patty stacked inside a toasted bun with crisp, cool lettuce, sweet tomato, pickles, onions and maybe some cheese, some of London’s best burger restaurants can be found in and around Soho, Old Street and Shoreditch. Menus at places like Band of Burgers or Far Rockaway like to keep things simple yet exciting. These, as well as plenty of others surrounding them, understand exactly what classic burgers are all about.

    With great burgers, comes great other stuff

    Should you wish to move past the classics, the burger restaurants in London have you covered there too. By this we mean burgers slightly more experimental, burgers that arrive at your table stacked higher than makes sense, or burgers with a health conscience. Not just that, it’s fair to say that most of London’s burger restaurants are, by their very nature, American restaurants, which means you’ll find more than a few additional options. Restaurants like Burger & Lobster go for surf & turf, of course, while elsewhere you’ll find ribs, fried chicken, hotdogs, premium cuts of meat, Tex-Mex, fries, shakes and plenty more besides.

    You don’t have to clog your arteries, by the way

    Yes, there was a brief health conscience before, and that’s because the burger has evolved way, way past greasiness and often unfair connotations to do with being unhealthy. For the health-conscious, the vegetarians, the vegans or the gluten-free amongst you, do be assured that many of London’s burger restaurants very proudly cater for you in style. All around the capital but particularly in areas north of the Thames, London is hiding burger restaurants serving black bean patties, tofu patties, heck, even lentil patties, often served with genuinely creative combinations of toppings and sides. There are restaurants that only serve gluten-free bread and some that serve only dairy-free cheese. Whatever you’re after, London has burger restaurants to suit.
