Although eating healthy food has become a trend as of late, so has another type of food, which isn’t quite so healthy: burgers. The simple burger has been regenerated by many different restaurants, with brioche buns and gourmet fries replacing the old, slightly charred but much loved BBQ staple. With so many restaurants focusing burgers, there’s almost too much choice, so here’s a narrowed down list of 5 places to check out when all that will do is a delicious burger.
A New York staple, one of two of Shake Shack’s UK outposts is based in Covent Garden. There’s a range of different types of burgers, catering to hot-dog lovers, vegetarians and even dogs. Grab a classic cheeseburger and fries along with their famous frozen custard; in a thick, creamy milkshake or as a ‘concrete’ – a glorified ice cream sundae. A little taste of New York City in the UK capital, Shake Shack is well worth a visit.
