Patty & Bun | Liverpool Street Restaurant
These days, in London, uncooked burgers are rare.
And so are burger joints that were SO well regarded and sought after as pop-ups, that they opened a permanent location of equally lauded excellence. Twice.
Welcome to Patty and Bun. If you haven’t been, here’s why you should go; if you have, then here’s why you should go again:
Some of London’s finest burgers are made with grass-fed 35 day aged cuts of Aberdeen Angus beef, butchered and prepared fresh in house every day with homemade mayo and relish. The menu is the good kind of simple, and even includes a list of breakfast burgers in rich brioche buns for the early risers and the hungover (who then walk out without a hangover).
Intimate tables, service and atmosphere are accentuated by the 90’s Hip-Hop and Future Soul music playing softly in the background. Just like the first James Street outlet, the newer venue has retained Patty and Bun’s street-side red awning, so all that intimacy, service and atmosphere we just mentioned spills out of the door and onto the street.
They also do takeaway. So all of those girls outside with buns in their hair…
… well, they’re just saving them for later.
NOTE: Patty & Bun don’t take reservations.
