Burger Wars Episode LXXXII: Back in Hawksmoor [BurgeReview]

Double dipped? What are you talking about?
George Costanza (Seinfeld episode “The Implant”)

I came back to Hawksmoor Seven Dials to get their special third burger. Yes their third burger changes with each season, and for this Spring we got the Five Pork Burger.

Burger Time
The Five Pork comes with a Tamworth pork patty, sausage meat stuffing, smoked bacon, greens, and apple ketchup, all this on a brioche bun. If that’s not enough, as a side you get pork scratching and sausage gravy for dipping and double dipping.

The verdict, delicious, not the healthiest burger but a really tasty one.

The damage, 15 quid for the burger plus fries

The conclusion, the burger was spot on, great flavours, good balance, the pork scratching were a nice touch, triple cooked chips perfect as usual. A solid 9.5 of 10 for Hawksmoor seasonal burger.

Gastropup in Imperial Wharf

Aw, these eggs are disgusting. This chicken should be ashamed of himself
Cosmo Kramer (Seinfeld episode “The Little Jerry”)

We went the other day with a couple friends to The Sands End Gastropub. Their idea is bringing a bit of the countryside pub to London. Seasonal menu, rustic décor, good selection of ales, and famous scotch eggs. The place is quite popular, busy and a bit noisy, completely pack on a Tuesday night, so go early or if you want to have a bit I would suggest booking a table in advance.

Bite time
I couldn’t miss trying the scotch eggs and the sausage rolls, as every review I read they were mentioned. As starter we got a burrata with artichoke, which was nice, creamy and fresh burrata as you would expect. Then the scotch eggs and sausage roll, the eggs was nice, great flavour, a runny yolk, lovely. The roll was ok, nice seasoning, the pastry wasn’t crispy enough, and the roll was cold, I would love it to be hot, but for that you might need to get earlier.

Nice food, good beers, ideal if you’re a local of the area.

Burger Wars Episode LXXXI: The Dip Side of the Force [BurgeReview]

Double-dipped? What are you talking about?
George Costanza (Seinfeld episode “The Implant”)

A couple weeks back I was looking for a burger, then I remembered about Dip & Flip in Clapham. All the reviews I saw so far where good so I was quite keen to go visit. The place has an alternative décor, chairs with names, tom petty and the stones on the speakers, big murals of a gravy train, and a lady on a cocktail holding a burger complete the scene.

A couple sandwiches to dip, and to flip five burgers including their special. I went for the Dip & Flip burger giving you a bit of both worlds. Brioche toasted bun, melted American cheese, and topped with roast beef and dripping gravy.

Burger time
Verdict, Really nice burger, perfectly cooked medium rare, the beef with gravy is a nice addition

Damage, 9.95 quid for the Dip & Flip burger

Conclusion, I really liked the burger, has a nice balance, good flavours, and they even get you a gravy bowl so you can dip and double dip your burger. Fries were crispy, quite good. I will give the Dip & Flip team a 9, quite good place if you end up in Clapham.
