Daisybutter - UK Style and Fashion Blog: London food ideas, Burger & Lobster review

Burger & Lobster Soho. 36 Dean St, London, 020 7432 4800.

One of London's most talked about food destinations, Burger & Lobster has been on my food Wunderlist - yeah, I do do that - for at least a couple of months. The way it operates is simple: choose burger or lobster and mull over the extensive drinks list for at least 15 minutes. (Then get the Vermont Cooler, non-alcoholic, because it is amazing.)

I finally got to visit BL last week with Jade. We were warned about queues, especially at the Soho branch on a Thursday evening, but after giving our names and being told to wait 20 minutes, I was pleasantly surprised when we were shown to a table about a minute after sitting at the bar. Thumbs up already!

Jade and I both ordered the Lobster Roll. For reference, there is no food menu at Burger & Lobster: you can choose from their burger, made from finest steak I hear, or lobster - grilled or steamed, or their lobster roll for something a little lighter. Meals come with skinny fries, a garlic butter sauce and a salad, and as a rarity, these sides are all every bit as good as the leading star.

The lobster roll has steamed lobster in a light Japanese mayonaise sauce squished in between two, thick slices of grilled bread. Despite how messy it looks to eat, it actually holds together pretty well and was super filling to boot. Fries are unlimited if you so wish to have more and the salad features balsamic dressing, spinach and rocket leaves, with croutons and red onions.
Have you succumbed to the Burger & Lobster hype yet? Ps. I'm sorry for the lack of "proper" restaurant photos, it was an Instagram-only kinda day.

  12. Aha I have mixed feelings when it comes to Burger and Lobster. I had a big allergic reaction which is weird because I'm definitely not allergic and have had Lobster since! Probably quite a toxic lobster....or as according to my parents, because they're not cooked the chinese way hahaha! Having said that, at the time I loved it!!!

    1. Oh no! That's so odd, I had no idea that could happen. I'm quite intrigued by the grilled lobster but will probably try the steamed one "next time".
