Band of Burgers: eat, drink, and be satisfied

Band of Burgers is all about great food, ambiance and the Camden vibe. Being in the heart of Camden has influenced their style and indeed the food as well.

At the restaurant you will get music, be able to create your own burger, and bring your own booze. They have premium Japanese Wagyu beef and also use Aberdeen Angus meat. People like burgers, so they have a menu that keeps things interesting, but you can still expect the classics.

Band of Burgers does a very tasty vegan burger which is proving to be very popular. Camden has more and more vegan restaurants and food options and proud to be a part of that. They also have 2 vegetarian burgers on the menu and regularly see non-vegetarians giving it a try.

The customer can bring their own beer and wine to enjoy with the meal and there is no corkage fee to pay. Bring your own booze at its best!

Band of Burgers has quite a nice “build your own burger” option so those of you who are keen to get experimental with your burgers or customise it to suit your tastes.

The burgers are cooked over a charcoal grill which adds a nice bit of flavour, so overall the whole meal is appetising. The service from the staff and management is top class, so it’s good food in a vibrant setting. The food and atmosphere makes Band of Burgers a must visit.

It’s 2 Minutes From Euston Station. Is It Better Than Brick Lane?

Drummond Street is London’s most famous restaurant street, in particular Indian and Bangladeshi restaurants. We went for lunch, took some photos, and had a look around. It’s been said that it’s “Better than Brick Lane”, so we put it to the test.

Drummond Street is a 2 minute walk from Euston station, and as you enter the street you’re greeted by the incredible Indian Spice shop. They opened in 1981 and the owner, Harish, is delighted to tell people which ingredients they need to make their own Indian foods. For those of you handy in the kitchen, this is a must visit. Take a look at the Drummond Street website.

For lunch we quite fancied some Indian food, which on a hot day didn’t seem like the best idea at first. We went to Diwana Bhel Phoori House, the UK’s first vegetarian Indian restaurant, and they had a beautiful looking buffet set out. For those who work in the area, not only do they get an extremely tasty meal, you can arrive eat all you can, and be out in just a few minutes. The food was spectacular.

Ravi Shankar, and the famous Chutney’s, along with the other restaurants, offer a weekly lunchtime buffet.

To finish off the visit we went to Ambala, the well-known Indian sweet shop and saw their huge selection of traditional Indian sweets. Fortunately, their staff explained to us the different flavours and types, so we of course choose the one with the coolest name and prettiest colour… and took a few with us for the week too.

We heard the laughter coming from Brizzi’s Italian restaurant, so dipped in to get a coffee. The wonderful and flamboyant Mr Brizzi himself made one of the best (and cheapest!) cups of coffee we’ve ever had, and showed us the downstairs restaurant. What a gem of a place! He’s been there since 1984, and his regular customers include Bono and Diego Maradona.

The shop that caught our attention, Bio-Organix, sells health products and supplements. Healthy tea, natural products to keep us in shape. What a great store. The owner is also happy to advise on healthy living.

To put it simply, Drummond Street has the best Indian food in London. It’s historic and the restaurants keep to the original recipes – many of these restaurants still have the same chefs from many decades ago.
