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)
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.
