We love burgers. It's a love that dares speak its name over and over again. We love burgers so much that we wanted to a) shout the word burger through the streets for one week straight, b) consider an ill-advised back tattoo of a giant patty and c) find out where the greatest burger in the UK lives. After being carefully talked down over the first two, we pushed forward with the third. Over the past year, we tried out the very best burgers that the UK has to offer. The full list is underneath while you can see the five star burgers here.
FORNATA 15 Kingly Street, Soho, W1B 5PS Fornata’s majestic centrepiece, a giant wood-burning oven that would be intimidating if it didn’t churn out such delights, calls to mind the communal cooking tradition of southern Italy. All the Italian standards are reassuringly present here, but the standout is the ingenious Fornata burger – a patty wrapped in pizza dough, which pairs neatly with the light zucchini fries. Don’t miss the sottobosco either, an ice-cream based cocktail/dessert hybrid.
