I love burgers, and I LOVE hot sauce. So the chilli burger at Byron really is my idea of food heaven. Luckily, or not so luckily for my waistline, I have a branch literally 5 minutes from my office in Gloucester Road so recently I headed there with my colleagues to indulge in one of my favourite meals!
The chilli burger contains a 6oz hamburger smothered with green chilli, American cheese, shredded iceberg and chipotle mayonnaise and I always order extra avocado to go inside. As a rule i order my steaks rare and my burgers medium rare. I like my beef to be still moo-ing when it hits my plate. The burgers at Byron always come perfectly cooked with the right balance of pink and charring to add flavour.
One of the other draws to Byron, aside from the namesake burgers , is the courgette fries. Trust me, once you’ve tried these, you won’t ever order regular fries again! they are basically soft and juicy courgette stripes fried tempura style in a light, crispy batter....all that you need is a nice glass of Fentimans ginger beer to wash it all down! absolute perfection!
