Where to eat in London // The Diner

If there's one thing that I've learnt, it's that you can't go wrong with a burger. Tasty, satisfying and often flexible in terms of toppings, they can help a bad day seem less shit. Living in London, I have tried many a burger but there aren't many that match up to that of The Diner. Up until now, I'd only ever tried the Camden branch. Admittedly only ever late at night after one too many cocktails. But all the same, a religious experience each and every time. More recently I've wondered how good The Diner actually is? Was my perception being skewed by alcohol? To be a fair judge, I decided to try another branch AND not have alcohol beforehand. And let me tell you now, the burgers were every bit as awesome.

M. had The Diablo  - a burger topped with jalapeƱo mayo, bacon and cheese - and judging by his silence (a rare thing!) and beaming smile, it was going down a treat. My burger of choice is usually a classic burger with lots of extra toppings and sauces to personalise it how I like it. This time I opted for garlic mayo (a must!) and caramelised onions. 

No burger is a proper burger without a milkshake. I always sway towards chocolate milkshakes because... chocolate. But this time I wanted to branch out and try one of their hard shakes for a change. We went for The Choconaut - spiced rum, dark chocolate liquor and chocolate ice cream. Never did I think I could prefer a milkshake over Oreo cookie or chocolate brownie... but it happened. Heaven in a glass. We ate at their Spitalfields restaurant but there are plenty more located in London. You can find your nearest Diner branch here.

Have you ever been to The Diner?
