Having lived in London for 2 years (I don’t live there anymore) I can’t believe I’ve never been to Byron before! It’s a London based burger chain serving ‘proper hamburgers’ as they say- and I agree! I’ve walked past loads of Byron restaurants before and they’ve always caught my eye as they’re all decorated in a really cool way. Every restaurant I’ve seen is different, which I really like, if you go into most chain restaurants you kind of know what to expect with the interior. The one we went to on Beak Street had a really cool, industrial feel inside.
We ordered some olives to start and Marcus ordered a rather funky looking beverage called Beavertown Smog Rocket. I went for a sparkling water, not quite as interesting! I ordered the Byron Cheeseburger with Emmenthal cheese and oh-my-god it was literally one of the best burgers I’ve ever had!! I ordered it medium-rare and it came basically rare, which I’m not complaining about. On the side we had some courgette fries and onion rings, both also amazing! I love courgette anyway, and courgette fries are a great idea as they don’t fill you up as much as regular chips. I’ll be attempting to recreate these sometime soon. The onion rings were so big, probably the same size as the burger. They defeated us and we left one! They were also some of the best onion rings I’ve ever had, and that means something- I’m a huge onion rings fan.
Byron, I’ll be back!
