A hop, skip, and a jump away from St. Christopher's Place lies Burger and Cocktails, an Americana dig serving up well....burgers and cocktails.
This place could make any American expat feel at home; the decor is very California hipster-esque, from the bright wallpaper adorned with old time sailor tattoos and bearded lumberjack types. Waiters walk around in matching plaid shirts, there are neon signs in every direction, and a giant, multicoloured bar. Needless to say, they've perfected their theme.
They've also perfected the products behind their namesake as well. They boast a generously cheap and tasty happy hour from 5 - 7 Mondays through Thursdays, with their drinks averaging around £4 during this time.
As for the burgers, I can honestly say that the burger I had there was probably the best burger I have ever eaten in my life (which is really saying something, especially since it only cost a whopping £8). I ordered the Korean burger, which consisted of a large, all British beef patty smothered in Korean bulgogi barbecue sauce, sriracha and lime aioli, pickles, coriander, rocket, cucumber and carrot shreds, and a generous heaping of spicy super food kimchi. It had the perfect balance of flavours, and even while I was eating it I was thinking of when I'd next be able to eat one again.
Aside from burgers, they also have wings, nachos, cheesy fries, and other typical bar and burger joint foods. My friends had the wings and cheesy fries and before I could look up from my burger they had already practically inhaled them.
I highly recommend going to check them out...if I haven't convinced you yet, go and see for yourself - their dining room is always full!
