London's Best Burgers
Well bur-gger me. No food is more convenient, chomp-worthy, most-likely to result in mess and completely and utterly satisfying than a big ol' burger. The rise of said burger has been one of great acclaim. Who does it better? Is that candied bacon? Do you use caramelised onions? Are there pickles involved? All of those questions are about to be answered for here lies our selection of London's best burgers.

When it comes down to droolworthy grub, Market Place Peckham, Harrow and Vauxhall is the place to go. Get stuck into Baba G's iconic Bhangra burger, which is made up of stacked lamb patties and delicious sides. If that's not enough to wet your whistle, the entertainment here will get you groovin'.
