Bodean’s – Cr Poland & D’Arblay St, Soho, London, W1F 8PZ, UK
8oz. Prime Beef Burger
Dress Code:
20 minutes
Would we recommend:
£6.95, add £1.00 for Monterey Jack Cheese

Just a two minute stroll from London’s busiest retail jungle Oxford Street, Bodean’s West in Soho is the deli-up, dinner-down, split-level destination for those after the authentic taste of the great American outdoors right in the heart of London. The burger offered is 8oz. of 100% prime beef, topped with Monterey Jack, tomato, lettuce, red onions and pickles, all on a toasted sesame seed bun, served with a side of fries.

“I felt like I was in a traditional American sports bar, with American beers, ESPN on the many plasmas and the word BBQ written everywhere. I was instantly impressed when they asked how I wanted my beef cooked (medium-rare). I then proceeded to collect my toolbox full of condiments and eagerly awaited the burger. When it arrived I found the beef was cooked precisely the way I had asked, with just the right amount of juiciness and seasoning. The cheese didn’t take away from the flavour of the beef and the bun kept it all together with too much slide. The homemade mayo and pickles on the side also meant you could add that extra bit of zest if you needed it.”

Surprisingly good burger-better than Hache. More Trad American than the Byron burger (but on a par quality wise). The Goodman was very good, but not life changing as some people have claimed.

None of these (or any I have had in America) were anywhere nearly as good, however, as a burger I had from a cafe in Warrington market in the mid 80’s.

I suspect I will be chasing this taste memory for the rest of my life.
