Amongst the slew of burger joints popping up left, right and centre, this Charlotte Street spot looks to do things a little differently. There's Champagne, for starters, as well as cocktails with a twist and small plates including prawn ceviche and a chicken and chorizo pâté with red onion compote and toast. Still not convinced? Try the 'experimental' events on Mondays and Saturdays - your chance to tuck into things like kangaroo, alligator and ostrich.
The burgers here are made with rare-breed beef from farms in Kent, Essex and Yorkshire, with Dexter, Longhorn and Red Lincoln cattle the chosen breeds. The patties are seared hot and fast on a Kopa charcoal oven, with cherry, English plum and hickory wood used to give things a little extra smoky flavour.
There's variety to the burgers, too. A Bobo is pretty much your classic burger but there's one with peanut butter, a lobster and crab burger, a spicy 'capsicum' burger (a beef and chorizo patty with manchego, tomato and chilli salsa, fresh chillies, lettuce, tomatoes, charcoal-roasted red onions, Bobo sauce and jalapeno mayo) and even one with wagyu beef - coming in at a cool £20.

The venue looks great, lots of simple/clean whites and greys, not what I expected from a burger restaurant. The service was attentive and friendly but the real news here is that these guys have taken burgers to the next level.
The Bobo burger - this is the finest burger I have ever eaten. Great quality meat (Red Lincoln was the offering that day), cooked in an indoor charcoal oven with English plum wood. Wow. Branded 'B' buns, vintage mismatched plates - my expectations were all surpassed and the burger rule book rewritten. The guys next to me were eating debauchery burgers and looked like they were in heaven.
The small plates menu looked good but the burgers here are insane.
Anywhere with peanut butter on a burger was already a winner in my eyes but what I wasn't expecting was a cute and cosy venue with an impressive cocktail menu. Some places are all about the sides, but the burgers were delish and weren't try hard. We struggled to choose which burger to go for so I suppose will just have to go back for more...
I am a big Burger fan! I can say that I found a really good burger place and next to my work! Burgers are tasty with fresh ingredients! I will recommend the "Debauchery" and the sweet potato with Truffles!!
The venue's quite small but it feels very cosy and intimate - great for dates or catching up with friends. The burgers are gorgeous too - plump, juicy and generous.
Eating at Bobo is like popping round to a good friend's for dinner, the dining room is small and intimate *adds to date spots list* with cute mismatched crockery. Go for the steak strips on the small plates menu to start, they're amazing! I went for a 'desperado' burger infused with chilli and lime and I felt like I'd died and gone to heaven. It was arguably the best burger I've ever had in London. The sweet potato and truffle salt chips are insane in the membrane and they even had 50% off some bottles of wines - the Bobo White is delicious and only £10 a bottle!!
Absolutely fabulous Bobo, I will be back!
Superb burgers & fantastic service - very much looking forward to going back and trying the Lobster & Crab burger!
