If you asked me a few years ago, I would have chosen anything else on a menu except a burger.
The halal scene has come a long way though – and converted the likes of me along with it.
Restaurants all across London have taken beef in a bun to a whole new level.
But where in the capital can you find the most mouth-watering burgers?
Well, to give you a heads-up, here are eight reasons why I have been converted into a fan.
Red Iron Burgers
If the insta-worthy Black bun burger with triple cheese doesn’t have you sold, Red Iron also has the best of both worlds with a fine dining steak house
Where: Red Iron,280 High Street, Uxbridge UB8 1LQ
In the words of most halal food bloggers, Brioche Burger not only serves the best burger in London, but also serves a mean halal-style full English breakfast.
Where: Brioche Burger,154 Hoe Street, Walthamstow, London E17 4QH
Band Of Burgers
In the words of many halal food bloggers, this is the best burger in London.
Where: Band Of Burgers,23 Camden High Street, Kings Cross, London NW1 7JE
Casual yet understated, Ma’Plucker serves a mean burger as well as the rest of the menu including popcorn ice cream.
Sign me up.
Where: Ma’Plucker,75 Beak Street, Carnaby, London W1F 9SS
What started off as a small establishment at the top of Kingly Court will surprise you with the best burgers and chicken and waffles you’ll have.
Their sister restaurant, Boondocks, is a bigger version with the same quality food.
Where: Stax, 1st Floor, 1.7 Kingly Court, London W1B 5PW
A full-on American diner in the middle of Camden Town serving a killer burger.
The double cheese burger is a favourite
Where: Fatburger, 10 Jamestown Road, London NW1 7BY
A small burger joint that supports local businesses; all the produce they use is sourced from the area.
Don’t leave without trying their truffle fries alongside a double beef burger.
Where: Burger UK, 8 Ferdinand Street, London NW1 8ER
Cut At 45 Park Lane
Mostly known for the most expensive yet exquisite steak you will have, but the beef sliders are some of the best burgers you’ll eat and are worth every penny.
Where: Cut At 45 Park Lane, 45 Park Lane, Mayfair, London W1K 1PN
Please note, we would always make sure that the food is halal before trying it, but would recommend you do the same before trying out any suggestions.
