An Honest Xmas Burger

An Honest Xmas Burger

We know you love food as much as we do, so this year we searched high and low (whilst eating a lot) to find what we think is the best alternative festive feast this Christmas, and you'll be pleased to hear, it's a damn good burger. Our search landed us less than a five minute walk from our store on Ganton Street as we discovered the alternate yule tidings of Honest Burgers, Soho. Honest Burgers grilled onto the London scene with it's first restaurant opening in Brixton to both critics and locals delight around 3 years ago. Since then Honest Burgers have gone on to establish numerous plaudits from the likes of The Obeserver, Time Out, Evening Standard, Metro and a whole lot more. As the plaudits continued so did the growth of the company and they introduced more chains across London including restaurants in Camden, Portobello and Soho. We headed over to meet with Tom Barton (co founder of Honest Burgers, below) at lunchtime last week to find out a bit more about the company and to take their new Christmas Special Burger for a test-eat. We also brought along our resident creative designer Jake Grear to give the honored menu board a Lazy Oaf twist.

There is genuine care and consideration on quality at Honest Burgers which really shows through. All the beef is supplied by The Ginger Pig, a 3,000 acre farm based in North Yorkshire supplying a range of meats to some of the highest quality butchers available in London.

All of that sitting on top of a bed of Rocket salad with thick cuts of Bacon makes for the perfect alternate festive feast. Accompanied by some authentic in house homemade lemonade and you'll leave more than satisfied. HONEST-BURGERS-2HONEST-BURGERS-1Lazy Oaf Creative Designer Jake Grear hard at work.
