Sad, sad burger

Review: The Fiesta Burger – Wahlburger

A recent entrant into London’s burger scene, the American chain Wahlburgers capitalises on the name of its famous co-owner, the celebrity Mark Wahlberg. Founded in 2011 by brothers Paul, Mark, and Donnie, the chain uses the motto “Our family, Our story, Our burgers”. The Covent Garden location opened on the 20th of May 2019.

Recipe: Burnt Butter Mayo

Inspired by the Bacon Butter Burger by Burger & Beyond, I attempted to make my own version of their burnt butter mayo at home. Its rich, silky goodness is an excellent replacement for mayo in any burger and probably works well as a mayo replacement in other foods (whatever they are).

Bleecker St is perhaps the most famous of London’s burger startups, vying for first place in the competitive landscape of London’s Best Burger.

It’s only been in recent years, long after I moved to...
