Living the life of a glutard* means that burgers are one of the things I really miss. I mean, it’s still possible to have a burger but it means no bread and eating it with a knife and fork, and asking the waiter/staff very particular and annoying questions about their burger supply, sauce ingredients and preparation methods – not exactly the same!
For any other London-dwelling glutards out there I am telling you your prayers have been answered. Get on down to Honest Burgers in Soho. Aside from the fact that they do probably the best burgers in town (for regular, normal-burger-eating people), they have gluten free bun options on the menu. Yes that’s right, an actual burger you can put your hands around and eat without a knife and fork!!!!
It is like heaven!
It get’s better too – they also serve gluten free beers! What’s that you say? Burger and beer? Without getting violently ill? Yes!!! We all know beer is yet another thing I miss and I have to say I was quite sceptical about how the gluten free options would taste. But they are actually really good… they taste like regular lager (from what I can remember).
One last thing about Honest burgers before I leave you all salivating and thinking about burgers all day is about their chips. You would think that chips are chips (aka fries) but these are something truly special – perfectly cooked to the exact right level of crunch and tastiness and then covered in herbs and spices to make them … wait for it… this is a big call… the BEST CHIPS I’VE EVER EATEN!! There you go, I said it.
The best part is you can happily come here with your non-glutard friends and know that you will all have a thoroughly delicious and enjoyable meal.
Honest Burgers? Honestly good!
