The burgers here are all made by 30 days tenderized steak, from London’s best butchers, Ginger Pig. Arrive early to get a table or have a takeaway, that will get the price down some more. The burgers cost £ 9.50 and are absolutely perfect! Your taste buds will remember this for a long time. The steak gets a nice crispy outside and is still juicy and pink in the middle. The chips are flavored with salt and rosemary and works nicely with the accessories for the burger; thick bacon slices, dill and mustard pickles and yummy onion marmalade.
The food served in sizzling stone bowls, which are not only stylish, cooksthe food while you eat it. This rice-based dish can be varied endlessly and bi bim bap is Korea’s answer to our potluck.
