The 5 Best Burgers in London Bridge

Published on 17th August 2022

On August 25th 2022, the humble burger will be officially appreciated nationwide. We’ve found the best burgers in London Bridge to help you celebrate. No, we’re not drooling… you are!    1. Flat Iron Tooley Street Flat Iron might be known for their steaks, but their Herd Burger is not to be overlooked. Introduced to the menu at the beginning of 2022, the dish is a reinvention of the ultimate classic cheeseburger. Designed by head of beef, Fred Smith, the burger is made using beef exclusively from the Flat Iron herd in Thirsk, Yorkshire and includes two patties layered with Ogleshield cheese, Natoora’s Iberiko winter tomatoes, crispy shredded lettuce, and a generous spread of Smith’s delicious burger relish. https://flatironsteak.co.uk/restaurant/london-bridge 2. Nanny Bill’s Started as an homage Grandma Bill and the cafe she ran in the ’70s & ’80s. Nanny Bill’s first opened a vintage food truck to feed the folk of Hackney in 2015. Their hand-pressed burgers took London’s burger scene by storm; with the ‘Dalston Dip’ (complete with dipping gravy) and ‘The Jam’ (National Burger Award Finalist) dominating the foodie-burger scene. Bonus – you can add one of their famous Mac N Cheese or Beef Brisket Croquettes to your burger for £1.50. Find them in London Bridge at The Vinegar Yard. https://www.nannybills.co.uk/vinegar-yard 3. Café Piazza Café Piazza’s brand new burger isn’t just your average beef patty. Favouring delicious cuts of roast beef and sandwiched in a brioche bun, the meat is topped with Japanese mayonnaise and finished with a delicate drizzle of truffle oil. If beef isn’t your preference then they have more mouth-watering options including pulled pork in a pretzel bun, and a Moving Mountain vegan cheeseburger. https://cafepiazza.london 4. Baba G’s at The Vinegar Yard If you fancy something a little less traditional, Baba G’s Bhangra burgers are just the ticket. The Million Pound Menu winners have been perfecting their hybrid of Indian inspired fast-food since 2008. The Crazy Lamb Jalfrezi, Cheeky Tikka Chicken and Paneer Saag Burgers are all firm favourites. Pair with masala fries for the ultimate taste sensation. Available in London Bridge at their stall at The Vinegar Yard. https://www.bhangraburger.com 5. Five Guys Tower Bridge Let’s wrap it up with a classic. Burger enterprise Five Guys had their humble beginnings started by five brothers in 1986 and is now one of the world’s most successful burger joints. But the formula remains simple – ‘Burgers and Fries cooked to perfection’ FG burgers come with as many of their 15 free toppings as you like, meaning the possibilities are endless! https://restaurants.fiveguys.co.uk/greater-london/unit-2
