REVIEW: double cheeseburger @bleeckerburger with multiple locations in LDN! 🍔🧀🤤 First things, justttt lool at it 👀👀 this ting won @timeoutlondon Best burger in LDN for I don't even know how many years running. 💁♂️
Okay, so this USED to be my favourite burger of all time (this is my 4th visit) but still holds the formula of what a good burger should be in my opinion. The sesame bun on its own is good, flavourful with the appropriate crumb and has the slightly spongy texture you want in burger bun but it doesn't draw too much attention to itself, the same for the cheese. The sauce however is interesting. Its creamy, subtly sweet, tart and peppery which realllly serves to complement all the wonderful fatty dry aged meaty flavours your gonna get from the star of the show in the patty. Think of it as an elevated big mac sauce and patty combo 👍 you're a liar if you say you're not a fan of OG big mac sauce 😤. The slightly dry aged beef that they use in their patties cooked at medium was absolutely filthyyyyyy good, 😵😵 I can honestly remember exactly how it tasted the first time I ate it in the summer of 2016. This changed the burger game for me and probably changed the way I think about food a lil bit 😂. Sadly! Now due to regulations, the bleeker patty is cooked well done for H&S reasons, which, in fairness it totally understandable. You should only be eating burgers medium rare if they are fresh ground from steak meat in the previous 24 hrs tbh which is difficult to do in their small booths they operate out of. Don't get me wrong. The bleeker burger is still iconic and fantastic and if you've never had it, you should still totally try it and see what I'm saying but for those who had it before the switch y'all know what I'm talking about, which is why is say it used to be my fave. I still haven't had anything better and I'm still searching 🔎 I believe I should probs check out the scene in the US at some point 🤔. OG bleeker woulda been higher for me but this still gets an 8/10.
s/o to @not_even_asain for the OG recommendation way back. You changed my life lmao 😭
