burger and lobster.

on friday night i went to a restaurant i’ve wanted to go to for ages. it’s called burger and lobster and it’s on dean st in soho (there is also one in mayfair). i really liked the setting, there are red leather booths and there were lots of people wearing lobster bibs. we arrived at ab0ut 6.30pm and got a table straight away.

once seated the friendly waitress gave us a drinks menu and told us we had a choice of 3 things to order.

burger (with cheese and bacon)
lobster
lobster roll

all 3 options were £20 and came with fries and a salad. me and my friend decided to get a burger and a lobster to share. it was a good decision. the lobster was meaty and delicious and came with a dream boat of herb and garlic butter. it was bloody massive too. the burger was pretty huge, too big to put in your mouth. my friend ate hers with a knife and fork like a princess. it was a good burger, but i have had better.

here is my friend and the burger so you can see how big it is next to a human

when we left at approx 8pm there was a queue forming and the bar was busy with people getting drunk whilst they waited to be seated.

in summary it’s good for the novelty of wearing a bib. i wouldn’t recommend going there if you don’t like lobster because you’ll end up paying £20 for a burger and i believe there are better and cheaper burgers to be had in london (like byron and meatliquor). if you want to eat a whole lobster then definitely go there.

i’ve also heard from loads of people (3 people) that the lobster roll is amazing, so i might go back for that one day.

byron burgah.

on tuesday night me and my friend lynsey went for a nice treat because she is leaving work soon to do another job where she will draw nice pictures and do some good colouring in. we chose to go to the byron on charing cross rd rather than the soho one because it is normally quieter than its soho sister and it is closer to leicester sq tube (where we try and spot tfl workers from the bbc 2 documentary ‘the tube’).

we really like going to byron because the burgers are probably in the top 12 burgers in london but i don’t know if this is true because i haven’t tried all the burgers in london i just know that they are really nice.

i got the byron burger and lynsey got chicken and we had french fries and lynsey had a root beer and i had a coke in a glass bottle which always makes me feel really happy.

my pictures aren’t very good because i was using my phone and the restaurant was candlelit because i think they were trying to be romantic

because it was a special treat we decided to go all out and have an oreo and brownie sundae too. it was nice but neither of us really care too much about ice cream so it was a bit of a silly decision. if you like ice cream and crumbled up brownie and one oreo you will like this

this is how many points lynsey gave dessert (i’m not sure what it’s out of)

verdict – i have been told there are better burgers to be had in london, but for me this is my favourite so far. i will keep you updated on my quest…
