Catching with some of my favourite old work colleagues doesn’t happen so often, but when it does it’s always a fab catch-up. With some deliberation we decided on trying out Byron Hamburgers in Farringdon.
It was a busy Friday and with no booking we managed to get a table for 4. Byron Burger is a chain of restaurants, this plot was previously a Pizza Express, but it makes a great welcome to Farringdon’s High Street. The interior is very casual, booth style and normal seating available, with a very American diner feel to the place but with an industrial look.
Once seated by our friendly waitress, we dived into the menu and ordered our drinks. Byron Burger has a great selection of beverages, ranging from the usual soft drinks, ales, larger, bottled beers, cidar, wine and milkshakes.
From the mains our choices included the ‘Chilli Hamburger’ served with lettuce, green chilli, American cheese topped with a chipotle sauce (£8.95):
A ‘Classic Hamburger’, 6oz served with lettuce, tomato, red onion and mayonnaise (£7.95):
‘Chicken Caesar’ with chargrilled chicken breast, lettuce, grana padano and Caesar dressing (£10.25):
I opted for the special that week which was the ‘Hot-A-Doodle-Doo’ chicken burger, where the chicken is marinated in a hot sauce, served with crispy onions, lettuce, pickles and ranch dressing (£9.50):
We also ordered a range of sides so we could all try a variety this included, French Fries (£2.95), Courgette Fries (£3.25), Homemade Skin on Chips (£3.25) and Onion Rings (£3.25):
The service at Byron Burger was efficient and friendly, the burgers were also very tasty. I thoroughly enjoyed the courgette fries and they made a change from eating regular fries. Byron Burger although just another burger chain in the market, produces high quality burgers which are tasty and a messy free experience unlike Meat Liquor.
