Sayer St Burgers at Feed The Yak in Elephant & Castle, SE17

 


Sayer St Burgers, run by chef Oli, is serving smash burgers every day at Feed The Yak, the sports and craft beer bar in Sayer St, SE17, near to Elephant & Castle.  Oli also ran Buena Onda Tacos, at the same site, and changed the menu (& the brand) at the start of this year.  The burgers are inspired by the LA-style smash burgers - and I had the one with two patties.

Burgers trends always seem to go in waves. The first 'gourmet' burgers about 20 years ago went for 'big and thick', I think partly to distinguish themselves from McDs and BK, whose burgers were always thin. This approach was also followed by Honest, Patty & Bun and the wave that came post 2011.

But now we're obviously going back the other way, with lots of people offering the thin 'smash' burgers, not least the viral guys in Soho, and Honest too, whose own smash burger is their best seller, and will be opening some dedicated 'smash' sites. Smash is the new fried chicken - discuss.

Back to chef Oli's smash burger: I absolutely loved this - full of flavour, made from mince specially formulated by a local South London butcher. The thinness, and the pressing during cooking caramelises the meat, and the greater surface area adds to the flavour. (I am drooling as I write this).

In fact it reminds me of The Bird in Berlin, a place I went to a few years ago - when the 'gourmet' style was all the rage here - thin patties with lots and lots of flavour, making a very tasty, moreish 🍔

Wilde's Deli at The Rose & Crown in Kentish Town

 

Wilde's Deli, the brainchild of chef Ollie Gratter, is currently serving Tues-Sun at The Rose & Crown in Kentish Town, with a range of 'Jew(ish)' dishes including salt beef reubens & sandwiches, turkey, latkes, and fried pickles.

Ollie only did his first pop-up in June last year, but since then it feels like he has been everywhere, including weekends in a cafe in Camberwell, and a supper club in Shepherd's Bush.  This is his longest residency to date, and it is proving very popular with the locals, and with other fans  making their way across London to see what all the fuss is about.

It's great food - in very generous portions.  I think I've eaten Ollie's food 4 times in 8 months, and each time has been better than the last.  

Catch a rising star!
