I had seen recommendations on TimeOut about Patty & Bun, they spoke about one of the best burgers in the city of London and we felt obliged to taste them. We went to the one on James Street and was full, there were people outside waiting witha desperate look in their faces but as in our case we are talking about a table for two we could quickly enter their small room with just over thirty seats. And when you taste the hamburgers you understand why there is queue outside … it’s quite worth it.
A especialidade da casa é o Ari Gold mas eu escolhi o Smokey Robinson que soma ao anterior cebola caramelizada e bacon. O pão é de brioche e a carne é excelente, em nenhum momento me pareceu seco e é daqueles hamburguers de lamber os dedos. Os acompanhamentos não ficam atrás com umas batatas fritas com sal de alecrim e a coleslaw que não tem os sabores tradicionais o que pode assustar ao principio. Ficámos tão bem que já não houve coragem para comer sobremesas, aliás nem sabemos se têm. O serviço é eficiente e descontraído assim como o ambiente só me incomodou a música que estava demasiado alta para os que queremos conversar ainda assim se vivesse em Londres seria uma cliente habitual do Patty & Bun.
The house specialty is the Ari Gold but I chose Smokey Robinson that adds to previous caramelized onions and bacon. The bread is brioche and the meat is great in no time seemed dry and it is those hamburgersthat has you lick your fingers. The sides are equally good with some fries with rosemary salt and coleslaw that does not have the traditional flavors which can scare you at the beginning. We were quite satisfied that there was no longer courage to eat desserts, in fact I do not even know if they have them. The service is efficient and relaxed as well as the environment the only thing that bothered me was the music that was too loud for those who want to talk yet if I lived in London would be a regular customer of Patty & Bun.
