Farewell to the Original Meat Liquor

Believe it or not, until a few months ago, I had never eaten at the original Meat Liquor.

I have frequented Meat Market in Covent Garden consistently over the years and…

From its humble food-truck beginnings, Bleecker Street Burger has now established two permanent locations and is a feature on many London top ten burger lists.  My first encounter with the Bleecker burgers was at the Dalston Yard Street Feast in east London – and I loved the beef for its unapologetic richness. I got to sample three different sliders…
