It’s Mr. Hyde National Burger Day on 25 August and lots of restaurants are offering discounts and special burgers to mark the occasion.
A massive number of London restaurants are taking part – 622 to be exact, including some of London’s best like Bleecker St. Burger, Meatliquor, Burgerac's Burgershack and Patty & Bun.
To qualify for the 20% discount at participating restaurants, you’ll need to download a voucher via the National Burger Day website.
A number of restaurants are also running specials, some of them quite… different. So, in reverse order, here’s our top 3 weirdest burgers created in honour of National Burger Day:
No. 3: The Brown Butter Pecan Ice Cream Burger at Jude’s Ice Cream
We’re always up for an ice cream sandwich, but is this stretching the concept a little too far?
A toasted brioche bun is filled with brown butter pecan ice cream and strawberries and topped with a sprinkling of nuts.
We think this one could get seriously messy.
Jude’s Ice Cream will be serving the ‘burger’ from their striped horse trailer in St. James’ Park from 25 – 27 August. £4.50
No. 2: The Calzone Burger at Rocket
Is it a calzone or a burger? This mind-bending creation fuses pizza dough with burger fillings, so perhaps we could call it The Calburger? Or The Burzone?
The dough is packed with a burger patty, tomato, cheese, bacon and a fried egg for added… egg? Chips come on the side if you’re up for a spot of double carbing.
Rocket, 2 Churchill Place Mall, E14 5RB. £14.60
No. 1: The Yorkshire Pudding Burger at Reform Social & Grill
Reform Social & Grill recently designed a whole menu around Yorkshire puddings, so this doesn’t come as a huge surprise.
An Angus beef and bone marrow burger patty is topped with Ogleshield cheese and horseradish mayo and served between two Yorkshire puddings.
It’s certainly original.
Reform Social & Grill, The Mandeville Hotel, Mandeville Place, W1U 2BE. £10.95 with chips.
