Restaurant Review: Honest Burgers, Tottenham Court Road
Share This Article:
If there's one thing London isn't short of it's burger restaurants. The capital is full to the brim with various places claiming to sell the best and tastiest burger in the whole city. As a seasoned Londoner, I've tried out my fair share of them but am still yet to find 'the one'. In comes Honest Burgers, a chain of burger restaurants across the country (there are dozens in London alone). I love a burger as much as (probably more than) the next person, but I am also incessantly fussy when it comes to food. Think of Sally Albright in When Harry Met Sally, when she orders her food: "I’d like the chef salad, please, with the oil and vinegar on the side. And the apple pie a la mode... But I'd like the pie heated, and I don't want the ice cream on top. I want it on the side. And I'd like strawberry instead of vanilla if you have it. If not, then no ice cream just whipped cream, but only if it's real. If it's out of a can, then nothing."

En route to Honest Burgers I was 100% expecting to have to do my usual ordering ritual of - yes I'll have that one, but with no tomato and no pickles, but extra sauce and oh can I have cheddar cheese instead of American? I'm a waiter's worst nightmare, so when I looked at the menu I was pleasantly surprised and somewhat shocked to see a burger on the menu in which I would not have to change or substitute anything (well except the pickles, obviously.) I opted for the 'Spring', a special edition seasonal burger that was only available for a limited time. Beef, bacon, Montgomery cheddar cheese, garlic pesto and rocket. A true treat for the senses. Each burger comes with a side of rosemary chips and the option to 'double up'. I also ordered a side of onion rings - as in my eyes you can never have too much garlic in one meal.
