London Burgers: Patty & Bun Review

Patty & Bun London Fields


After an afternoon of cycling through Victoria Park and a lot of East London, Chris and I were thirsty and hungry. It was the perfect time for us to head over to the very cool railway arches of London Fields and give Patty & Bun a try. We’d been meaning to do so for a long time!

My crazy thirst was quenched by the most delicious peach and lemon iced tea. It was fruity but not too sweet.

We shared sides, including ‘Winger Winger Chicken Dinner’, AKA smoked confit barbecue wings with spring onions. Pretty delicious (if you like barbecue sauce!).

…and legendary fries.

Chris had the ‘Lambshank Redemption’ burger:

And what a great choice that was! It’s a pretty unusual burger, with a thick lamb patty with coriander and chilli, buttermilk courgette, pickled aubergine, cumin aioli, and feta. Of course the brioche bun was lovely as well (after all, it is Patty & Bun). Chris is convinced that his burger was better than mine (we’ve agreed to disagree).

I went for the gloriously dirty Smokey Robinson burger – just look at that CHEESE!

With a perfectly cooked aged beef patty, wonderfully gooey melted cheese, bacon, smokey mayo and caramelised onions, it was very tasty, smokey, and messy. Burgers aren’t meant to be pretty, and this one definitely wasn’t. It 100% satisfied my craving for a good burger.

Unfortunately because of all the excitement I only took photos of the restaurant after we had eaten, by which time the lovely tables and chairs outside had been put inside. London Fields is the perfect place to spend a quiet sunny afternoon – lots of outdoor seating and independent coffee shops.

There are a few great parks nearby too. Victoria Park is definitely worth a visit and is so much bigger than most people think.

I’m ashamed to say that we had to ask for a doggy bag for the wings! We ate them at home later that evening and very much enjoyed them.
