MEATliquor: Don’t Believe The Hype?

Let’s be honest: there’s been enough talk about MEATliquor (supposedly London’s hottest burger joint) to persuade even the hardiest of Veggies to walk through its darkened doors. But, is it really worth all the hype? My curiosity got the better of me, and I set out to investigate…

Firstly- and this is an important point- make sure you know exactly where it is. As we headed off in the vague knowledge that it was ‘behind Debenhams’, we soon realised it didn’t have a door sign. Cue a frantic ‘Google Mapping’.

Luckily as it was lunchtime, we avoided their famous queues and walked straight on in.

Once inside, I did as any decent person would do, and scanned the floor for any celebs. Of course, I was stopped in my tracks, because MeatLiquor is as dark as your regular sleazy joint over in Soho. Maybe that’s why the likes of Jameela Jamil and other generic Radio 1 DJs like to hide out here…

Food time. I plumped for the Bingo Wings and Fries, washed down with a Henrietta Fizz cocktail, whilst Mr A opted for the Phili Cheese Steak. To be blunt, I was dumbstruck with how on earth MEATliquor has got such a huge reputation from serving pretty average food. However, compared to heavy-handed West End prices, MEATliquor is reasonably priced for a quick bite of lunch.

Having said that, I was prepared to suffer all the salt and grease in London for their fantastic playlist: Fleetwood Mac anyone?

In short: the food is crap, but it’s fun and cheap so that’s ok.

 

The biggest plus: The staff were really friendly and not as annoying as I anticipated.

The biggest turn-off: It’s so dark it makes Abercrombie & Fitch look like a light party.
