October 6 2018. London. The stage was set in this meat-mad city for the first of Time Out x Deliveroo’s epic food face-offs: Battle of the Burger. At Hoxton’s atmospheric Geffrye Museum, eight awesome burgers experts (expats?) prepared to pit their patties against each other to establish who is the burger don of London. Under the watchful eye (who are we kidding?) of the ever-sassy Crystal, bun-based war was waged.

Competition was fierce. Fourpure beers were sunk; tunes were danced to; 1,500 hungry burger fans got stuck in. There was the classic: Mac and Wild’s Venimoo burger is an established modern culinary icon. There was the classy: Haché’s Truffle Burger is no one’s idea of quick and dirty. There was the frankly awe-inspiring: have you seen GoneBurger’s KickFlip? It looks like it has a mind of its own. Shake Shack brought their Shack Burger, and it was pretty swell, while Tommi’s patty heaped with brisket was a succulent delight. Safe to say, it was a field packed with quality. In the hands of Beer + Burger Store, a humble cheese burger became a taste smash. Also, props are due to London’s venerable vegetarian pioneer Mildreds. Its totally vegan I Can’t Believe It’s Not Cluckin’ Chicken Burger, totally held its own against its meaty competitors
But after several neck-and-neck rounds, a victor finally emerged: Bad Egg. One over-wrought Time Outer described its Bad Egg Burger as ‘bloody banging’. Nuff said.
Well done, Bad Egg!
