Honest Burgers – Spitalfields

Our team night out from work this evening ended at Honest Burgers, Spitalfields.

Good burgers made from prime beef are all the rage and they’re not hard to find. I do wonder how all the big burger chains manage to differentiate themselves. But somehow they seem to.

My honest burger @ £10.50 made from dry aged beef packed with red onion relish, smoked bacon, mature cheddar, pickled cucumber (gherkin) and lettuce was meaty, juicy, tasty and *amazing*. Pleasingly, the bread bun was smaller than usual so it wasn’t as over-facing.

It’s the onion rings that really stand out though – they remind me more of my homemade onion bhajis than regular onion rings, in that the batter contains fennel seeds providing a subtle aniseed flavour.

I had also ordered a portion of apple, beetroot and red cabbage coleslaw @ £3.00. It sounded delicious but it never arrived at the table. Not even when I chased it with the server. Which was probably a good thing, as I was full.

Aha, mystery of the missing coleslaw solved…. Found spilt on the stairs on a trip to the loo (definitely don’t want it now…Just being ‘honest’)
