Check out our video introduction to Honest Burgers here.
Don’t be alarmed if this tiny burger joint is packed when you arrive – simply give the friendly, efficient staff your number to key into their iPads and wait for them to text you when a space is free (you can follow your queue status online too). That will give you time to pop off for an aperitif in one of Brixton Village/Market Row’s numerous other buzzing businesses, or to grab a carryout from the off-licence, listen to street music (there’s always something going on in Brixton Village) and generally soak up the atmosphere in these covered streets. Once you’re in, there’s no time to waste mulling over the menu. There are five simple choices – plain, cheese, ‘honest’ (with bacon and cheese), a special (manchego and chorizo, perhaps), and a vegetable fritter. Beef is supplied by Ginger Pig, cooked medium, served in a glazed bun and is just as juicy as you could wish. Honest’s signature chips are seasoned with rosemary salt. There’s a minimal wine list, ale from Redchurch brewery in Bethnal Green, and local speciality Ossie’s ginger beer. Fast food at the top of its game.
