The BBB, Burger & Beyond - London, UK

Venue: Any burger lover in London will know about Burger & Beyond. My first and only experience of them at Kerb Camden was not at all what I expected, as I was issued an above average bacon cheeseburger, but not the taste revelation I was hyped for. Perhaps it was a bad day and after speaking to various foodie friends, I was informed that the place to get the true essence of B&B was at Street Feast’s Dinerama. In the heart of Shoreditch, a stone’s throw from the station, this venue boasts some staple vendors in the London street food scene.

The Burger: I was recommended ‘The BBB’ (Bacon butter burger), which is not actually available in Kerb Camden. Make sure you plan accordingly if you want to experience, arguably, the most well-regarded Burger & Beyond menu item. ‘The BBB’ boasts their signature 90 day aged patty, double American cheese, crispy bacon, burnt butter mayo and onion.

Taste: Up front and to the point, this is the best burger I have had in London to date. It’s right up there with the best I have ever had in-fact.

Leading with the 90-day aged patty, it was cooked medium well but still oozed with juices and flavour. The tenderness of the meat was sublime, likely testament to the ageing process of the beef. Paired with the thick, smoked bacon, the two most dominant flavours in this burger were through the meat — how it should be.

The burnt butter mayo was well applied but also silky on the tastebuds, helping to reinforce the quality of the patty, perhaps where a less subtle sauce, such as a tomato or BBQ would have detracted from it. The same could be said for the cheese; American offering just enough to build on flavour without overpowering.

The Summary: Simplicity is the name of the game and this is, above all else, what works for ‘The BBB’. The power of the flavour comes through the succulent, tender and juicy patty as well as the salty, thick bacon and is then complemented fantastically by the silky buttery mayo and cheese. The quality of all these ingredients speaks volumes as the taste buds are sent to heaven and back with every bite. This really is a 10/10 burger and I cannot wait to go back.

Patty Master Musings:

  • The vibes at most street food venues are good, but I absolutely loved it at Dinerama. I’m yet to do many of the street food venues in London, but this will take some beating.
  • Notably ’The BBB' comes in at £13 for a double. Don’t hesitate though. Double up. It’s worth it.
  • Did I Dip It? This is already dipped in heaven.
