Awesome. A gem of a grill that’s just opened in West London. It’s only one of a pair and based on the first three visits there will be many more on the way. These guys will live and die by their burgers so the meat is excellent, but their owner has gone out of his way to source some great bread (light, moist ciabatta) and fool around with some interesting sides (not sure the courgette fries will be for everyone, but it’s cool to see options like that). Thing is that their super hot charcoal grill really sears the burger in the way you can only dream of. This could be the Ultimate rare burger in London. And where they also excel is on the dips: there’s half a dozen home made dressings that really are made on site – my fave is the stilton, but don’t dismiss the bbq or the tomato; both outstanding.
