Josh and I spent a lovely few days in London this week, visiting our ex-housemate who has just moved into a flat near Camden. A trip to London is usually a one day thing for us, so having a friend living there permanently now means that we could spend a few days doing some of the more normal, less touristy stuff and not have to cram loads into one short day.
We were meeting up with some friends in a Camden bar later in the evening so we decided to get some food beforehand. We were crossing a road and Josh, my long-time vegetarian boyfriend went 'ooh, what about there?' - yes Josh, what a suggestion! Byron is one of those London food places that's been on my must-try list for ages - along with Patty & Bun, Meat Liquor and various other renowned burger joints.
I customised the blue cheese burger and added extra bacon, opting for a medium-well cooked burger with skin-on fries. The waiter was really angling for me to try a medium or less cooked burger, but the half-vegetarian in me [I rarely eat meat, unless eating out as a treat] wasn't having any of it. Josh had the veggie burger - consisting of portobello mushroom, roasted red pepper, goats cheese, spinach, tomato, red onion and aioli plus these amazing courgette fries which were incredible. I definitely recommend trying those, I'm not usually a big courgette fan either!
Overall it was a lovely place for dinner - the food was amazing, it was served really quickly by an attentive waiter plus the decor inside the restaurant is so cool. It's a clash of different, retro, 70s style wallpaper on every wall - plus a massive old-style telly hung up on the ceiling. You should try and stop there for lunch or dinner, if you're around Camden and looking for food!
