The City of London has a lot to offer. Endless cocktail bars, impressive restaurants and rooftop venues, but there is one thing that’s always been missing…a place where you can get a really really good burger.
Much to our delight, rumour spread fast that ‘Burger Pit‘ was opening, and we couldn’t wait to be one of the first to try it out.
Situated on the busy Leadenhall Street, it’s in the ideal location for hungry City workers looking for their lunchtime burger fix, and I was one of them!
The menu is simple. Burger, steak burger, veggie burger or hot dog, with fries and a drink. There are also a choice of extras to pack into your burger, including cheese and bacon.
They’re currently finalising plans to sell alcoholic beverages. We asked the manager when he thinks this should be in place and he hopes by the end of the week, so stay tuned!
I couldn’t resist ordering the burger, which came out looking and tasting delicious. The chunky burger patty was soft, pink and juicy inside, which is exactly how I like my beef cooked.
The burger bun was a teenie tiny bit burnt but I didn’t mind because everything else was perfection.
My friend ordered the 9 inch hot dog which arrived in a soft roll. A selection of sauces are stocked on each table so you can help yourself to whatever tickles your fancy.
Word had obviously caught on and the place was buzzing when we first arrived at around midday, but soon after we’d finished eating they had sold out of hot dogs and steak burgers and the place calmed down a bit.
Good job we got in quick!
Burger Pit are also open from 7:30am for breakfast, serving sausage and egg and bacon and egg baps with unlimited tea and coffee.
As they are very new, there are bound to be a few hiccups whilst they find their feet, but considering they’ve only been open a week I thought the food was gorgeous and I’ll definitely be back very soon!
This place definitely kicks McDonald’s little butt.
