Australia Announces the Hamdog!

The Hamdog innovation is an Australian breakthrough in trans-meat technology, seven years in the making.  Unsurprisingly, the Hamdog is a crossbreed between a hamburger and a hotdog. Because, DUH! Aussie inventor Mark Murray appeared on the Australian TV show, Shark Tank, to pitch his idea to investors last year.  It’s the Australian equivalent of the UK’s…

The Story of McDonalds, The Founder Trailer

You may not know the name Ray Kroc, but you definitely know of a little joint called McDonald’s.  I’m adverse to fast food posts here on Beeffanatic, but the trailer to The Founder, starring Michael Keaton, dropped a couple days back and I can’t resist. The Founder tells the story of Ray Kroc, a traveling…

Sausage Party – next film from Seth Rogen and Jonah Hill

‘Sausage Party’ looks excellent.  It flies in the face of everything “Pixar” in the most perfect, NC-17 of ways.  The latest flick from Seth Rogen, Jonah Hill, and Evan Goldberg just released its first trailer today. If you haven’t watched the trailer yet, please treat yourself below! What started as a joke that Rogen and…

You…

A Man Called Bacon Double Cheeseburger

A local London man from Muswell Hill has legally changed his name to Mr. Bacon Double Cheeseburger. It’s unclear to Beeffanatic if the name is in fact Bacon D. Cheeseburger, Bacon Double-Cheeseburger III, or BD Cheeseburger Jr. Simon Smith legally changed his name via UK deed poll – a legal document that, “proves a change…

The Old Frizzle, Wimbledon Pub Burger Love

The Old Frizzle sits smack in the middle of the Wimbledon Broadway.  It became my local when it took over for the lackluster rugby pub that preceded it. And I spent four good years in Wimbledon nearby the Old Frizzle, so it’s about time I show my ole-standby some love. It was quite easy to…

London’s Top Ten Burgers, 2015

…According to yours truly! The top ten burgers in London are a subject of never-ending debate, even with myself.  Who has the right to claim beefy dominance in the crowded London burger scene – who are the upstarts and who are the ‘old’ standbys?  The true top ten burgers of London can only be determined…

Salt Beef Steps up at Delancey

Update: Delancey is now closed.  I’m not sure when, but having walk by in May, I saw it shuttered up.  Not surprising with the huge turnover in restaurants around Charlotte Street, but still sad.  RIP Delancey, we hardly knew ye. My original review from 2015: Watch out, Mishkin’s, there is a new NYC-style deli player…
