Burger Fest is Back

The bunch of dedicated (or delirious) meat-heads at Twenty Something have done it again. Fed up with everyone's hollow claims to 'London's best burger,' we put ourselves through four weeks of meat sweats and sweat pants to taste 75 of London's top-rated burgers in pursuit of a number one y'all can finally trust. We're proud to announce that our watertight scoring metrics - 'patty,' 'bun,' 'structure,' 'toppings' and 'wow factor' - have revealed ten burgers so gloriously fucking great you'll never look at a salad again.

The list is shit-hot, and slightly spicy with some surprising drop-offs and a crop of newcomers shaking up the game. The winner, Wild Game Co, came out of nowhere with the juiciest, double-pattied, bresaola and onion-jam laden Veni Moo burger shooting him from last year's 7th place to 2015's top spot.

Each burger is a true work of art - trust us, you need to try them all. And you can (well, you can try five, but props if you even get that far) at Burger Fest two point oh. This year, we've partnered with Red Stripe beer and The Paperworks to bring you hungry punters a bigger event in an even bigger venue, with alcoholic popsicles and banging summertime tunes to wash it all down.

The first 100 people through the door of each session get a free Red Stripe, and doors close two and half hours into each session.

Thanks to all of the following burger pros who were a part of the tasting process: Tommi's Burger Joint , Patty & Bun, Bunsmiths, Flat Iron , Hawksmoor, Bobo Social, Chosen Bun, Mother Flipper, Bad Egg, Dirty Burger, Chop Shop, Butchies, Burger Shack, MeatLiquor, Byron, Five Guys, Shake Shack, Honky Tonk.

1st place

Andy Waugh and his team of game specialists have jumped from last year's 7th place to this year's top spot with a creation of burger brilliance.

To the Veni Moo - beef and venison patties sourced, like all the meat on Wild Game's menu, from Andy's family's farm in the Scottish Highlands, topped with bresaola, Bearnaise sauce and onion jam - we say #getinmabelly.

2nd place

This NY-inspired street fooder stays hidden in Spitalfields while the people flock from every corner of the city for the perfect form and flavour of his Bacon Cheeseburger: American cheese melted over a double patty and bacon housed in a bun with a crispy toasted edge. Banging.

3rd place

Burger Bear Tom has united two of his best burgers, the Angry Bear and the Grizzly Bear, to create none other than the Angry Grizzly, a mind-blowingly delicious mountain of double-aged meat, oak-smoked bacon, Ribman’s Holy Fuck sauce, helluvapino relish and signature bacon jam.

Holy fuck, indeed.

4th place

It's a happy day when barbecue and burgers say 'I do.' Exciting newcomer, Spitalfields smokehouse Hotbox demonstrates the magic of an aged shortrib patty in a sweet-bun burger topped with jalapenos and red cheddar.

5th place

As any fan of Broadgate's favourite silver citizen knows, Mark and his team at Street Kitchen work wonders with the best locally sourced ingredients.

The Buffalo Bill is an aged beef patty topped with mustard mayo, sweet pickled onions and gloriously melted cheddar, perfectly housed in a golden brioche bun. True. Burger. Perfection.

6th place

Honest Burgers needs no introduction and their menu, no description.

The Honest - a 35-day dry aged beef patty with red onion relish, smoked bacon, mature cheddar, pickled cucumber and lettuce - has been the London's definitively brilliant burger since Tom and Phil first opened up shop in Brixton in 2010.

7th place

As if the chunky, spicy patty, perfectly pink with a crispy outer crust, gooey American cheese and pillow-soft bun aren't already glorious enough, the Green Chilli Cheeseburger isn't a Dip n Flip classic unless dipped into the French gravy that Tim and Adam are famous for. Yes.

8th place

A seasoned old-timer on London's burger scene, Lucky Chip lays it on thick with a mountain of thick smoked bacon, blue cheese, roasted jalapeños and aioli, barely held between the freshest seed bun.

The El Chappo is a proper experience to eat - you'll need a napkin or four.

9th place

This gem of a Jamaican burger joint, nestled at the end of Portobello Road, serves up a burger as badass and colourful as its place of inspiration.

British-bred beef patty with cheese, bacon jam and all the trimmings wedged between a sweet brioche bun - BOOM, baby.

10th place

With his sinfully delicious signature - two loosely packed patties smothered in melted cheddar and smokey BBQ sauce, topped with crunchy lamb lettuce and tomato, all held together in a soft-glazed brioche - Chris proves that a classic cheeseburger done right will always be the real deal.
