Boom Burger
Notting Hill / Restaurant / Cuisine: Burgers

Boom Burger is located in Portobello Market which welcomes people of all nationalities and tastes every day of the week. It is no surprise that Boom Burger, a Jamaican burger joint, is housed in Notting Hill, the trademark area for the Caribbean Notting Hill Carnival which annually brings in over several million people to the wonderfully brightly coloured dancing show. Boom Burger's menu houses just eight dishes but with care and precision has managed to make such a small menu, count. Their jerk chicken burgers have been lauded for their unique taste and the cheap price tag. Dancing is encouraged on Saturday nights which goes hand in hand with the Jamaican cocktails on offer.

Honest Burgers
Soho / Restaurant / Cuisine: Burgers

Riding on the success of their first restaurant opening in Brixton, Honest Burgers Soho is slicker and less bohemian than its artisanal counterpart. Located down a residential side-road off Wardour Street, the small restaurant has a communal feel to it, with long benches and only a number of seated tables. However, the trademark Honest Burgers remain the same in both restaurants: generously sized, appropriately dressed, and mightily tasty. The chuck steak is high quality, locally sourced (from the Ginger Pig butchers) and 35 day dry-aged for extra depth of flavour. Veggie options include a cauliflower, sweetcorn and shallot fritter burger. Contact Honest Burgers directly

MEATliquor
Marylebone / Restaurant / Cuisine: Burgers

With its dim, graffiti-splattered interior, Meat Liquor could be mistaken for bikers' bar; but brave the darkness and you'll find lip-smacking American dishes and a raucous soundtrack. The first challenge is picking which of the unique plates takes your fancy. Try the pastrami dog or green chilli cheeseburger, followed by the indulgent peanut butter sundae - as tasty as they are distinctive. As you'd expect from its straight-up moniker, MeatLiquor serves up some decent cocktails including the ostentatious full English martini, served with a side of bacon and eggs. For quality, stodgy portions it certainly 'meats' your high expectations. Contact MEATliquor directly

Bukowski Grill
Shoreditch / Restaurant / Cuisine: Burgers

Bukowski, situated in Shoreditch's unique pop-up mall, Boxpark, is a collaboration between Robin Freeman (former head chef at members club Blacks) and Alberto Figueroa (of the now-closed Green & Red). The charcoal grill restaurant focuses heavily on burgers, with all produce sourced from quality suppliers around the UK. The restaurant itself is unique because of its location within a small shipping container, there are only four wooden bench tables. However, customers who visit Bukowski are urged to take their burgers outside to enjoy on the benches on Boxpark's outdoor alfresco decking. Contact Bukowski Grill directly
