Highest-quality burgers from a street food stall.
Bleecker Street take the hunger out of Hungerford Bridge when positioning their food truck down there, and have whipped up a street food storm at Spitalfields Market since parking up permanently. That’s all down to a stripped-back but hugely satisfying formula for the all-American burger. Show-stopping dry-aged beef cooked pink is complemented by Bleecker’s ‘secret sauce’ that tastes every bit as peppery as McDonalds’ Big Mac mayo (but more upmarket, obvs). Cheese is as orange as the Waterloo sunset and seeded buns are toasted to perfection, perfectly mopping up those excess patty juices without ever compromising your vice-like burger grip. The standard bacon cheeseburger (£7) will be plenty for most people. If you’re in the mood for yabba-dabba-doo, however, go for the double (£9).
There are just a few tables and you’ll be eating in the food-stall periphery of the bustling market, so don’t expect much in the way of comfort or ambience. But is that what you're here for? Of course it isn't.

Was there the other day and had a double cheeseburger. Although tasty it looked nothing like the burger in the photo. That would have been a really special burger indeed
No fuss on the menu design and no frills on food presentation, but these burgers are some of the best you can get in London. Don't miss it.
I've been searching for the best burger place and I think I've found it. Best burger I've ever tasted.
I had my first taste of Bleecker St Burger at Meatopia 2014 and have been hooked ever since that first juicy bite of their near-perfect beef patty.
I immediately sought out their van at Old Spitalfields Market (now a permanent location) and have been a regular ever since, despite living on the opposite side of London.
A simple menu, but simplicity is all you need here as the quality of the meat shines through every time. This unwavering consistency is why I can say hand-on-heart that this is my favourite burger in London, and perhaps even the world.
Yeah, I said it.
I have honestly lost count the amount of times I have gone out of my way to seek out a Bleecker St location and not once have they disappointed or lowered the standard of their burger. With each bite the uncontrollable (and rather embarrassing) noises that come from someone in a state of pure bliss.
Unfortunately their ever increasing popularity has meant longer queues (also not helped by the introduction of Deliveroo) but I promise you it will be worth the wait.
Tastemaker tip: Always go for the double. Oh, and order the Angry Fries. You can thank me later.
The burger with black pudding is a must-try for locals and tourists alike — a uniquely English spin on the ubiquitous burger.
