Heading to London and hankering a burger? Be sure to give these blogs a read for tips on where to find the best burgers (and avoid the worst) while in town.
“Someone out there is capable of committing the perfect burger” and it is the “oh-so-noble mission” of the Burgerac blogger and his team of contributors to find it, eat it and blog about it. Until the perfect burger is discovered and devoured, this “burger detective” and crew will remain “hot on the trail of the finest burger in town”.
Recently reviewed: the Little Social Aged Scottish Beef Burger, “a top notch bacon cheeseburger and a silver bucket of French fries in a cozy bistro a mere hop, skip and a jump from Oxford Street.”

This “intrinsically hypocritical” blog is brought to you by a couple of burger-loving buddies from north east London. Visit the Burger Anarchy for reviews, “videos of burger monstrosities” and more “meat biased” content.
Recently reviewed: Jamie Oliver’s Diner (and it’s not pretty).

“Covering burger reviews across London, incorporating the most comprehensive London Burger Map, and Best Burgers in London,” the Burgerme blog adheres strict criteria and an almost academic approach to rating London’s burgers.
Recently reviewed: The Juicy Bastard at The Green Man pub, “a little gem of a burger” that “looks great, is super juicy, and has great balance.”
