The adventure continues on Thayer street...
My burger experience has been slacking recently, so I grabbed my beautiful friend Isobel for the ride and trundled up to central London. You can check out her wonderful blog here. We decided to try out Tommi's Burger Joint, for some good quality meat to satisfy our burger cravings. Tommi's has two locations in London and it's definitely worth a visit or three. The chain started out in 2004 in Iceland (also side note - desperate to visit Iceland this year) and its popularity has risen ever since with restaurants in Copenhagen and Berlin too. I like the overall vibe of Tommi's, a bit wacky but rustic. The menu is simplistic, which is great when you're not in the mood to peruse for hours. You can either go for a Burger, Chicken Burger, Veggie Burger or the Burger of the Month. See? Simple. There are extras and shakes too in case you're peckish for more.
I decided to try out the Burger of the Month - The Hamburguesa, which consisted of chorizo salsa, aioli, manchego cheese and a pimenton spiced patty. A delicious patty topped with the colourful salsa that gives the burger that distinct chorizo flavour. All the burgers are cooked medium unless you ask otherwise, so perfectly pink for me. I liked The Hamburguesa purely because there wasn't too much going on - just a ruddy good burger, transporting me to Spain. I do wish it had come with a little Sangria on the side...The fries were your bog standard McDonald's-esk chips so nothing to write home about. However, what I really loved about Tommi's were the sauces and little pots of extra toppings. I chose some bearnaise sauce and cocktail sauce, alongside a little pot of crispy onions. I think that's a really neat idea.
This hasn't overtaken Meat and Shake in the hunt for London's best burger, but I'd love to come back to try out the standard beef burger or the chicken burger. Definitely one to add to the list of restaurants to try.
Queue: We visited on a Saturday at 12pm when the doors opened and it was already pretty busy. Both UK venues are quite small, so be wary of queuing.
Price: For a burger, fries, sauces and a drink it cost around £18, however they do have an 'Offer of the Century' for £10.90 burger, soda and fries which I'd definitely recommend - bargain!
Ambience: Tiny venue, fantastic artwork (an Instagrammer's dream), great for a quick bite to eat.
Do you have ay recommendations of where I should try next?
