We were around the corner at Oxford Street and figured that we should pop by for some burger goodness!
Patty & Bun has become very popular in London with their juicy burgers. There are 2 locations in Central London, one on James Street and one on Liverpool Street. The one on James Street is right in the middle of the famous shopping street, Oxford Street (this is like Orchard Road in Singapore). Which is just as well, because you can always drop by for a burger after your shopping spree!
The restaurant is decorated very simply, and there are not too many seats. The menu is also very simple, with the choice of 6 burgers, sides to go with the burgers, and drinks. Sometimes there will be ‘Specials’ which will be written on the chalkboard on the wall. There is a simple queue system where you need to inform the waiter of your group size and then you wait. If you are lucky, you can find a seat on the single bench outside. Otherwise you walk around the street, and wait. 🙂
We were third in the queue and got seated after close to 20 minutes of waiting. We quickly ordered the ‘ARI Gold’ Cheeseburger (£7.50), a Winger Winger Chicken Dinner (£5.50) and a Coleslaw sides (£3) to share. The queue outside exploded while we were waiting for our food 😮 That popular huh?
The burger (Beef patty, Cheese, Lettuce, Tomato, Pickled onions, Ketchup, Smokey P&B mayo, Brioche) was of a manageable size, and the patty was done just right, slightly red and super juicy! It was already cut into half, so that it’s easier for us to share, and you can really see all the different layers of ingredients packed nicely in the brioche bread. There were forks and knifes but a burger is definitely best eaten with bare hands and make a mess out of it! 🙂
The Winger Winger Chicken Dinner were BBQ chicken wings and they were truly excellent! They were drenched in BBQ sauce, yet the skin remained crispy, while the meat was tender and moist. The meat fell off the bones easily and was very easy to eat. We enjoyed this thoroughly!
The coleslaw was not the usual type that was soaked in mayonnaise; it’s more like a ‘dry’ slaw with very little watery dressing… It was refreshing to eat, and a great complement to the burger and wings!
Overall, a rather satisfying meal 🙂
