Trendy Soho has one of the most reputable and popular Hamburger houses in London.
The catch is that there is a waiting time can be some 30 or more minutes for a table, on a minuscule restaurant.
Honest burgers is really easy to miss as the Google Maps marker is set on Wardour Street, rather than on Meard Street.
Please make sure you go to the right place.
Seating inside is close to only 20. To make sure the queuing system is tidy, HB uses a texting system, where once the table is ready, a text message is sent to your phone.
So, shopping can still be done, or even going for some pints as a HB regular suggested, before getting back for your table. The wait is worth it.
Not much choice, besides a couple of house specials for the day.
The Honest was the choice and here is the result after waiting around 15 minutes of wait
First of all, this place has the best gourmet burger meat I have ever tasted. Well aged, slightly smoked, melts on the mouth with a great palate which contrasts with sweet relish .
The cheddar was definitely a good choice, but the bacon was missed. Too missed. Can’t recall the taste of it.
These rosemary are a pretty bunch. And they taste of rosemary, too!
Most. Addicting. Fries. Ever.
The crispy ones are the best.
As for drinks, Sheppy’s Sommerset Draught. A typical dry Sommerset. Not many carbonation, fruity and light.
But the lemonade
Is the one to get. So fresh and tasty. Not too sweet and it wasn’t acid.
It is done with carbonated water.
All taken into consideration, in my opinion, best Gourmet Burgers in town and well worth the wait.
Price is manageable. 14 Pounds per person. Other restaurants, sometimes will set you back extra 3ppp.
Food – 4.5/5
