The Iron Patty: Flat Iron X Patty & Bun

It isn’t often I feel compelled to blog about a new burger, but sometimes something comes along that just can’t be allowed to pass by without comment. Just in time for the hangover season, burger maestros Patty & Bun and Flat Iron steakhouse have joined forces to create ‘The Iron Patty’ (£12), which consists of a chunky Galloway mince beef patty, crispy sweet Roscoff onions, fontina ‘goo’ (buttery liquid cheese, basically), dripping and lashings of truffled mayo, all enbunned in shiny brioche.

I had the immense privilege of having it for lunch last week, which was amazing, because it tastes fantastic and retains a good level of sloppiness despite cast-iron structural integrity, but also awful, because I had to go back to work afterwards and my goodness if the thing isn’t industrial-grade nap fuel.

Sadly, the Iron Patty is only available at P&B’s Soho restaurant and Flat Iron Golborne Road, which is terrible news for anyone in East London, but it is around until 22nd December.
