Patty & Bun's Smokey Robinson burger - it's a miracle!

Not since Elvis was jiving in his blue suede shoes has the humble burger been such a phenomenon.

In London right now it feels like a new diner opens almost every week, promising a beef and bread combo that's bigger, better and dirtier (!) than ever before. Needless to say, with so many options on the table there's a danger of worshipping false idols, and it's hard to know where to begin on the quest for sensory enlightenment.

Crowned King of kings at Burger Monday's latest #LondonBurgerBash, Joe Grossman's Patty & Bun has certainly generated the most evangelistic response from the masses. Disciples flock to this tiny restaurant in a constant stream, waiting with the rest of the outdoor congregation until they can enter the shrine and be charmed by the infamous Ari Gold, or experience a whole new level of foodporn courtesy of the Ron Jeremy special.

Having harked on for months about taking a trip to Patty & Bun, I decided it was time to discover for myself whether Joe really is the messiah, or just a very naughty boy...



  1. This looks quite literally INSANE. I NEED to go. Have been meaning to for so long!!

  2. One of my top burgers in London Sophie, I highly recommend it! Make sure you get there very early (or mid afternoon) to try and beat the queue!
