If you haven't been down to Brixton Village recently- or as is more likely the case given Brixton's (undeserved) rep, ever- you really should give it a go. I was at the re-launch of Brixton Village a couple of years ago, more by chance than design after stumbling upon it while wandering around Brixton Market proper, and what was then a couple of start up restaurants and lots of empty units has really blossomed into a great little hub of foodie activity with numerous restaurants and a real buzz.
The Fashionista and I popped along last night to try a little Thai place called Kao Sarn- unfortunately though they were fully booked so that one will have to wait until another time. We wandered around for a while and then decided to settle on "Honest Burgers" which serves a simple menu of Chicken burgers, various 35 day aged beef burgers or a vegetable fritter. With such a short menu they really are pinning a lot on the burgers being up to scratch- and they are!
Most of the burger hype in the last few years has been surrounding the phenomenon that is #MeatEasy. We went when it was in New Cross Gate (now of Peckham Rye) and had to queue for about an hour when we got there and wait at least another forty-five for our food. When it arrived it was great-so good in fact that I didn't ever think I would find a better burger in London- Honest Burgers, however, manages to top it on every level! The buns are lighter, the meat tastier and the toppings more generous!
Everyone should give this place a try- I doubt you will find a better burger anywhere in the London!
