Byron burger 
Byron at The Intrepid Fox
97 Wardour Street

Date of Last Visit: Sunday, February 21, 2010

The Victims: Mireia, John

The Damage: £12 or so each?

The Background: So it's Day 2 of my photography class and again, I get to pick the lunch place. Fantastic. So Byron's it is. I've been craving a burger since my fantastic example at Rockit in Chicago earlier in the month–19 very well-spent dollars worth of Kobe beef. (Brief Chicago round-up coming up. Don't worry–won't bore you with multiple single posts. I'm going to do one big summary.)

The Entrance: Bryron at The Intrepid Fox is NOT fast food. We are shown to a table and given a menu and after what seems like hours later, someone finally comes to take our order.

Then, after what seems like even more hours later but was only 20 minutes (still longer than I expected), our food finally arrives. Burgers for me and John. Salad for Mireia. (She's so good.)

And the burger is GOOD. Really good. Perfect medium. Great flavor. Perhaps the only fault is that the bun just isn't toasted enough for me. By the end of my burger, I'm holding a bit of a soggy, bready mess. But you know what? I really didn't mind.

The Verdict: Cheaper than The Hawsmoor burger. Juicier. More informal. Good times, but still no American cheese. Seriously…my kingdom for some Kraft Singles!

    I love Byron, easily the best Burger I have tasted (not done the Hawksmoor yet) Cheese was ok with me but yes a sloppy kraft slice would be a win … I’ve never been keen on Government Cheese unless there’s a power failure 🙂

    Looking forward to your Brick Lane write up as I live round the corner and haven’t worked my way through all the food stalls.

    Byron has got to be my fave burger in Londontown right now, but I haven’t tried Goodman yet! Love that it’s not fast food actually because you kinda sorta feel like you’re at a proper restaurant! 🙂

  3. Time to start carrying Kraft slices in your handbag, maybe. BYOC.

    Luckily, with whatever they're made of, I don't think they'd go bad or stink up the plane…

    They tweeted the other day to say that they have sourced the right dirty cheese! Great to meet you today 🙂
