There isn’t much I can say about Blogger’s favourite Byron that hasn’t already been said but I’m adding this as much for the record as anything else. I don’t much like writing about food I’ve not cooked myself and I’ve never eaten a proper American hamburger so am certainly no expert on the subject but I do know what I like and I like Byron.

I had a day off from work on Thursday and Stephen suggested we meet at Westfield for lunch. He conveniently works around the corner and I had my first week’s wages to spend (on incredibly glamorous stuff like hiking socks and technical baselayers to keep me warm in the shop). Stephen hadn’t been to Byron before, the last time we tried to go they had unfortunately sold out of hamburgers and only had chicken left so there was a lot riding on this visit.

The service was quick and efficient and the burger was well cooked, slightly over the advertised medium but still juicy inside with a good flavour (although Stephen thought his was a little dry). I think the bun has changed recently but I can’t be sure, this was a soft roll and I think they previously used ciabatta. The fries were particularly good, thin and crispy which is just how I like them and with a decent potato flavour. Pretty good for under a tenner although the burger isn’t huge and my feeling of fullness probably had a lot to do with the huge milkshake I had.

    Noooo it’s Hache that uses the dreaded ciabatta bun, Byron don’t or didn’t. I haven’t tried a milkshake there, but I do love their courgette fries.
