I have to confess that Tommi’s Burger Joint wasn’t my first choice. When a group of us decided to go out for burgers my first thought was to go to Patty and Bun, but as none of us were really in the queueing mood (and on a Friday night Patty and Bun would definitely have a queue), so we decided to go to Tommi’s which had reopened earlier in the week.

After spending the previous night at the Shake Shack preview I headed to the Five Guys opening day yesterday still a bit full from all the burgers.

So unless you’ve been under a rock the last month (or just not on Twitter) then you of course know that the famous American burger chain Shake Shack is opening in London tomorrow (July 5th). This is their first European restaurant and it opens up in the heart of Covent Garden. Luckily for me i’ve been a bit like Charlie with his golden ticket to Willy Wonka’s chocolate factory this week as I managed to get invited to two preview events before they open their doors.
This weekend Kerb launched their summer series of Saturday markets at Kings Cross, just like their weekday markets, but supersized. So instead of 4-5 traders there were nearly 15 to choose from ranging from BBQ to Gyoza to Cupcakes, not to mention plenty of ice cream for the perfect summer lunch. They even had the big screen so you could watch Wimbledon, the only thing missing was some strawberries and cream.
