Burger and Lobster

The mighty combo

Burger and lobster really has become one of the most popular restaurant chains in London, now 5 chains strong with another on its way in Fitzrovia. What hasn't changed is its ridiculously crazy waiting time, especially the Soho and Mayfair branches. I actually was sad enough to wait 2 hours once but I work out a way to avoid that by visiting the Farringdon site as it seemed it is the less busy branch. No queue even at 8pm in the evening and still not fully packed so I guess in the future if I ever want to get a Burger and Lobster meal then I know where I should head to.

I went for the combo deal which you get 2 burgers, a whole lobster and 2 desserts to share between 2 people. It was the first time I've ever tried their burgers and it turned out to be rather awesome. The meat was really moist and juicy, full of smoky and meaty aromas. It was a real mouthful and it was just as good as my favourite burger from Honest Burgers, although the cost is almost double. The lobster as expected was great and very consistent if I was to benchmark with my previous visits, Burger and Lobster doesn't offer fireworks but it sure does the job when it comes to delivering great burgers and lobsters.
