Remember I mentioned October being full of treats and celebrations?
Well, my sister’s got a lil place in London and invited me down to visit for my birthday. She asked me what I wanted to do, and I knew immediately.
From reading many a blog of likes of The Londoner and Essie Button, I wanted to get down and dirty and try a proper American inspired burger joint.
We had a wander and came across The Diner, which seemed to fit the bill perfectly.
Loaded fries? Check
Big, creamy milkshakes? Check
Relaxed, urban atmosphere? Check
It took us rather a while to decide on just one burger, I really need to one day pluck up the courage to simply order everything off the menu
But alas, I restrained myself and settled for just the one burger
I settled for the Diablo
8oz USDA burger made from Rib, Sirloin, Filet & Chuck on a Diner Bun, topped with Bacon, Jalapeno Mayo and Monterey Jack Cheese
Jen went for the Original Burger
No frills, just a pure good burger
With a side of Onion Rings
BUT I left the best till last…
Ho-ly Mo-ly Wow.
Meet the Hanger Fries.
Crispy skinny fries, topped with cheese, smokey onions & burger sauce.
I was dying to try one of their shakes but I simply did not have room, I guess there’s always next time!
Instead we went for a long walk to walk off our food babies
Aren’t the poppies beautiful?
