UNDERCOVER Hamburger Lamp

What's the point of having a ridiculous collection of burger-related homewares, ornaments and gadgets - when you can't behold them in the warm glow of a suitably burgertastic lamp?

Where is the best burger in London? Vote now!

Where is the best burger in London? Personally, I'm not sure you can answer that question unless you've sampled every single burger in town, subjecting each to the same rigorous set of tests. BUT you can, of course, ask that question and get an idea of which burger joint in London is the most popular at the moment...

Burgershack's inaugural Saturday opening!

It's been a while since I've posted pics of burgers but I've got a pretty good excuse. I've been more than a little preoccupied with a new and exciting project: Burgershack, a pub kitchen residency at The Royal Oak pub in Marylebone...

But what's this? Converse just joined the burger shoe party with these Chuck Taylor All Star high tops sporting an all over burger print – for only the most dedicated burger lovers...

Burgerac's 4th of July Barbecue mix

Back in May I played a two-hour set of  "Music To Grill Meat To" on Comms Bureau, Pick Me Up festival's pop-up radio station. Digging my swampy selection, the good folk at Cool Hunting in New York asked me to do a special  mix in time for the 4th of July seasonal backyard barbecue and firecracker celebrations. I didn't have much time but how could I refuse?

So, wherever you are, and whatever you're doing this 4th July, I hope y'all enjoy my 20 track selection of what Cool Hunting has labelled "swampland hits" . Listen on mixcloud or here or below:

The Prince (N16) burger

£9 At long flippin' last: awesome burgers come to Stoke Newington, courtesy of Will Dee, head chef at The Prince pub on Kynaston Road

As a long time resident of Stoke Newington I can't tell you how happy I am to see The Prince pub on Kynaston Road refurbished (beautifully) and serving a selection of top craft ales, mostly from the plethora of excellent local London breweries to have emerged in the last few years - Beavertown, Camden Town Brewery, Five Points, Hackney Brewery, London Fields Brewery, Pressure Drop, The Redchurch Brewery and more...

The Drapers Arms Cheeseburger

£12.50 One of the best pub burgers in London – thanks to a 200g beef patty from The Butchery, a bespoke St John bun and a whole lotta love...

I've been to The Drapers Arms a few times but managed to never go at a time when burgers are being served. You see, they only serve burgers at lunchtime, Monday to Saturday. So if you go on a Sunday, you'll have great food and beer for sure but a burger won't be an option. A couple of weeks ago, on a Bank Holiday Monday, my luck changed and I finally sampled the pub's burger…
