Just what is it about burgers that makes us drool uncontrollably until someone asks us to leave the restaurant?
The thought of the sizzling medium-cooked patty hitting the tongue? That gourmet bun glistening in your hand like a brioche beacon? The prospect of a big gherkin? The prospect of no gherkin because that’s how you like it?
Well, whatever your preference, you’ll be sure to get your fill on 25 August, when Mr Hyde’s National Burger Day returns in a blaze of glory, bringing 20 per cent discounts to over 700 restaurants nationwide, along with a big bash at London’s Hawker House (tickets are on sale now).
