Ben's Canteen Review

Top 10 things you need to know about Ben's Canteen, Earlsfield:

1)  You’ve heard of fashion wars; probably heard of robot wars; but there’s a fierce battle raging at Ben's Canteen: burger wars, a beauty contest between rival burgers as they’re paired off with their ideal wines.

2)  The clientele here are not your typical bloodthirsty sports crowds: even when a championship football match is screened live in the restaurant, the audience merely give it a cursory glance. They’re here for the culinary action.

3)  The pre-match warm up act is almost as meaty as the main attraction: Ben's epic Scotch egg; comforting, filling and, in any other venue, would be a main course.

4)  The ideal ringside beverage might be their vodka sodas using homemade flavoured syrups and sodas matched with top European vodka brands.

5)  The underdog on the card is the cheeseburger: it might be simple with just 7oz umami laden aged beef patty and their house BC sauce, but the richness of the taste shines through. It is matched with a Pinot Gris, which still has refreshing acidity from an early harvest but has a more nuanced flavour profile.

6)  In the bourgeoisie corner is the posh fried chicken. As an option for burgers, it has been traditionally giving steady, if unremarkable, performances. However, the tasty version here is buttermilk spiced and combined with mustard mayo along with a fresh, crunchy batter. Along with a glass of Mumm champagne, this could be a potential winner.

7)  The beast in the ring is the Hawaiian. If size matters, you need to pick this as your favourite, because there is an abundance of pulled pork, pineapple fritter, slaw and mustard pickle. Unsurprisingly, this is paired with a sturdy and robust Malbec wine.

8)  You can't go into battle without your support team: there is a whole array of interesting sides to choose from including fries with chicken salt and kale with zesty lemon.

9)  Bottomless fizz doesn't have to be just for brunch. Here they offer any burger/main course along with 2 hours of free-flowing fizz to celebrate victory for just £35.

10) In most people's minds, burgers and wine is the dream ticket for a perfect night out. At Ben's Canteen, they even help you decide which wine is best matched with your favourite burger.
