Patty & Bun
THE WINGS! Easily the best wings i have eaten, they probably over-shadow the burger, which is as good as i have had in London. Patty & Bun is on James st (st Christopher’s place). Expect to queue though as i am yet to find a time where there hasn’t been a queue outside. Don’t be scared if it looks long, i haven’t had to wait more than 45 mins and the wings alone are worth that wait!
To make these perfect wings they are smoked and confit, then fried and covered in BBQ sauce, in nearly all other dishes i am not a advocate of BBQ sauce, spicy and vinegary is how i would order my wings, but i am a convert after having these.
The burger, The special was the mister miyagi, which was a beef patty, confit pork belly, smoked jalapeño, smoked cheddar and spiced ketchup on a brioche bun. Once again the brioche bun makes all the difference when it comes to getting the nest burgers possible. Perfect medium rare patty, super juicy making this a dangerous burger to eat unless you have your face firmly over the table. The pork belly was rich and melt in the mouth succulent, the smokiness of the cheddar and jalapeños appeared before a subtle hint of spice from the spiced ketchup and jalapeño. This all came together for a stunning burger experience, even better than than the Smokey Robinson burger i had during my previous visit. With a Beef patty, cheese, tomato, mounds of caramelised onions, bacon, ketchup, smokey P&B mayo, brioche. Once again medium rare and probably the juiciest patty i have comes across to date, this is as good as or better than the other burger places i have visited.
Definitely worth the wait and the trip. Just make sure you try those wings!
