I love a good burger and the London burger scene is booming these days, but stirring deep into the Docklands in East London is a fun burger phenomenon and it’s only there for a limited time!
Manhattan Grill, situated on the front of the Marriott Hotel at West India Quay, is a well-known hotspot for good steaks and one we’ve thoroughly enjoyed in the past. To celebrate Independence Day, they’ve launched a new burger menu that asks you to pick a British or American burger to destroy.
Chef Damian Trejo, who earned his culinary stripes cooking for President Barack Obama, has conjured up ’THE AMERICAN’, which oozes streaky smoked bacon, sautéed garlic mushrooms, and melted Monterey Jack, all served in a toasted sesame seed brioche bun.
Defending our British culinary reputation is ’THE BRITISH’, which sees succulent Aberdeen Angus beef topped with juicy gammon steak, fried egg and zingy tomato relish.
For those who don’t want to take sides, Manhattan Grill will also serve ‘THE OTHER’, a beautifully tender lamb burger, topped with pickled red onions, coriander and mint yoghurt.
All three burgers will be available throughout July so head there quick!
If you do happen to miss it, then head there anyway and tuck into some amazing steaks and a truly outstanding wine menu! We also recommend the scallops and the pork belly from the starter menu – couldn’t eat these quick enough as they were so tasty!
