If you’re a big fan of baps like us, you’ll be just as excited as we are that today is officially National Burger Day! A day that sees burgers of all shapes and sizes adorn our favourite London eateries, ready for you burger-bandits to stumble upon. However, if you’re need of a push in the right direction, here’s a guide that will have your belly full for days to come, post-munch.


Fancy trying your hand at devouring Florentine’s 2.2kg Herculean burger? Well, you might need a help devouring this guy but when there’s 20% off on offer for one of London’s biggest burgs, the answer is only ever yes. The burger, enough to serve a party of four, comes stuffed with Montgomery cheese, portobello mushrooms, streaky bacon, black truffle, lettuce, tomatoes and a side of chips and sweet potato fries, and five dips. (Wow that was a mouthful!). Gargle it down with craft beers or British bubbles, delish!
