If you know anything about me… you know that I’m obsessed with eggs. I love how useful they are in everyday cooking. Whenever I get ramen, I always, without fail, order extra eggs. I’m obsessed with those jammy yolked Ajisuke Tamago (味付け玉子). It took me a while to master these, but I think that I’ve got it down pat now with this foolproof method. I’m happy to share with you how to make ramen eggs.
I remember when a good burger in London was one that did not give you food poisoning. That was about 2007 years ago when the scene started to cotton on to the fact that a burger could be more than an overcooked frozen patty with some fried onions and melted cheese in a sugary over-processed white bun. Places like Hamburger Union (RIP), Gourmet Burger Kitchen and Byron started to blaze the way on the high streets. It was not until 2008 when The Meat Wagon rolled onto the scene that burgers got really interesting in London. It’s safe to say that I have had a fair few burgers since 2008, some have been amazing, some rubbish and a majority forgettable.
So here is my 2019 List of the Best London Burgers.

The other day when I was on a shoot with Toast Ale I remembered the Leftover turkey ramen recipe I made last year based on the BBC Good Food Turkey Ramen. I really loved that ramen and decided that I wanted to make it again this year. Seeing how Toast is all about making sure nothing goes to waste, I thought I’d take that ramen recipe one step further.
I was once asked what my death row dish would be….. Without hesitation, it was Christmas Dinner. I love it so much. Being You know what I love even more than Christmas dinner…. Using the leftovers to make fun and exciting things…. My favourite use, (and probably the most obvious) is making sandwiches with the left-over meats and sauces.
I’ve been obsessed with muffulettas for a while. I mean just one look and they are thrilling. Not familiar with a Muffuletta?
I’m a sucker for pickles. You have heard me proclaim my love for them numerous times on here. When i read that @shakeshackuk were doing a crispy pickle burger as a special my mouth began to water. They take a pair of their beef patty and melt some creamy provolone cheese on them. Stack some sweet white onions, deep fried pickles and garlic mayo and sandwich it between potato buns… you have one epic @burger. Its only around for 2 months and this won’t be the last time I get my chops on it! ⠀
Summertime snacking at @wahaca . Completely smitten with the new Summer Menu at Wahaca… I’ve always liked Wahaca, but I think that I’m leaning toward the feelings of love for the place. The summer menu feels like they are taking a few more risks to push the boat out. The highlights were the perfectly layered Mexico City Nachos with some goodness on each tortilla. ? Just look at that pea studded ricotta tostada, felt both smugly virtuous and decadent at the same time! The summer menu is across all branches now. .⠀
Tuck in and let me know what you think! ⠀
Mega Brunch goals here at @berberandq with their Moroccan take on the Patty Melt. Take a meaty merguez sausage patty sandwich it with goats cheese, shallots and honey grill it between butter slathered bread. It’s part of their new brunch offering taken from @ChefJoshKatz debut cookbook. The menu reads really well with shakusha, midle eastern spiced buttermilk fried chick and turkish eggs. Cant wait to try out some of the recipes at home. .
Berber & Q is out now and you can buy it through the link in my profile. .
