They don’t murder the burgers here!
You’ll have to walk through a florist shop to reach the Hoi Polloi brassiere! Located on Shoreditch high street, the food stays grounded despite the menu consisting of a cocktails titled “Cod Eek” and “National Handbag”. The basic cheeseburger is indeed miles away from “basic” and once you try the food here you’ll understand why the restaurant is known for dishing up some of the best burgers in London.
The prices at Hoi Polloi are a tad pricey, and the wine list may make some flinch. The food, however, remains delightful!
The Jamaican burger eatery, Boom burger adds a Jamaican spin on every item on the menu. Established by Caribbean-born Josh De Lisser, the Boom burger menu is straightforward and offers out-there burgers alongside tamer ones like the Bacon Boom.

Sample the Jerk Boom that goes all-out island style with jerk chicken topped up with fresh mangoes, fried plantains and pawpaw sauce!
