Overall Experience

We finally went to Patty & Bun! We’d heard so many good things about this place for a while now. So we had quite high expectations. Within a few years Patty & Bun has expanded to four permanent restaurants and their popularity isn’t dying down anytime soon!

We decided to head down to their latest branch opened in Soho’s Old Compton Street. Although its surrounded by other food joints, Patty & Bun is by no means hidden. It’s distinct logo and neon lights can be seen a mile away. Inside, the decor is pretty simple yet trendy and nearly everything is wooden. There’s an impressive bar at the back serving up a big selection of cocktails, unique to this Soho branch.

The menu is simple and easy to follow – what you see is what you get. Each item has a simple description to give you and idea of what you’re in for.

We had some milkshakes to kick start our meal. These are made using  gelato, so they were supposed to be extra creamy and frothy. Maybe we’d left ours sitting for too long before we actually tucked in, so they weren’t as creamy as we were expecting. Nonetheless, the flavours were definitely there!

Milkshake Patty & bun

Hazelnut (£4.50) – this was absolutely amazing! Think hazelnut latte, without the coffee and not so sweet. The hazelnut taste was super intense and  the sprinkle of chopped hazelnuts on top made this milkshake extra decadent!

Honeycomb & Clotted Cream (£4.50) – this was a creative flavour combination and surprisingly really good! The honeycomb gave the milkshake it’s sweetness and the clotted cream added a slight yogurty sharpness. There was also a sprinkle of honeycomb pieces to top it off. So many levels of flavours and textures and definitely worth trying.

On to our burgers next!

First up was the Ari Gold (£7.50) – this is the recommended burger to try when you come to Patty & Bun. It’s pretty much what you’d expect from a burger: beef patty, cheese, ketchup, lettuce, tomato, onions, mayo and a brioche bun. Patty & Bun used pickled onions in this, which gives you the sharpness to cut the rich flavours from everything else. The mayo also isn’t your bog standard one – it’s Patty & Bun’s Smokey mayo! Which was like an extra creamy barbeque sauce. You can’t go wrong with the Ari Gold – a simple burger with explosive flavours!

Next we had the Smokey Robinson (£8.75). When Patty & Bun decided to call this burger smokey, they really meant it. From the first bite to the last, you get that really intense smokey flavour, yet it doesn’t overpower any of the others. The Smokey Robinson is similar to the Ari Gold, but with caramelised onions instead and also added bacon. So try this if you want an upgraded bacon cheeseburger!

Lastly, we had the Lambshank Redemption (£8.50). This was absolutely amazing and we were both lost for words. How could a burger taste this good? By cleverly layering each ingredient so that they compliment each other and work together to create a work of art! Starting from the bottom there’s soft pickled aubergine, lettuce, lamb patty, crumbled feta cheese, cumin aioli , courgette fritters. The cumon aioli was definitely the star of the dish – so intense and creamy. If you like your middle eastern flavours, then definitely try this Lambshank Redemption!

You can order a number of different sides to go with the delicious burgers. We opted for:

Chips with Rosemary Salt (£2.95) and Chips with Chicken Skin Salt (£3.70 and served with a Roast Chicken Mayo) – these skin on chips were good to go with the burgers. There wasn’t enough of the rosemary salt on the chips though. But the roast chicken mayo was delicious! It was like eating roast chicken flavoured crisps. So of the two chips, we’d recommend the chicken option.

To balance out our meal, we also got an order of their Side Salad (£3.00) – we don’t think the menu description gave this salad the justice it deserved! It’s not just a bunch of leaves tossed together. It was a bowl of salad leaves carefully mixed with pomegranite and wafer thin radish slices, in a simple dressing. Definitely worth having if you want a balanced meal at Patty & Bun!

Our finished meal – so satisfied!

As you can tell, we absolutely loved Patty & Bun! So much that we’re goving Patty & Bun a total of 4.5 yums! Each of the burgers were cooked to perfection and we just couldn’t get enough of them. Big, bold, creative flavours in each of them, thoughtfully put together. So next time you feel like a burger, think Patty & Bun!
