The Magic Roundabout – Old Street, London

One Friday evening after work, Jack and I made our way to The Magic Roundabout as we had heard about it from friends and it is right by my new office.

It was a buzzing atmosphere but still quite relaxed and not ridiculously busy. We could still order drinks and food easily without waiting in any stressful queues or crowds and we still found a spot to sit down. It is a no frills pop up joint with just two stalls, one craft beers and coffee stall and a main bar where you can get the usual main stream bar drinks.

With music in the back ground (no too loud that you needed to shout into your friends ears) and great weather that evening – it was a really nice place for a chilled out post work dinner and drinks – and something a bit different.

We shared the Tiger Prawn Slider which came with a loving portion of fries and a seafood sauce to dip them in. The prawns were beautifully grilled and popped into a brioche type bun with some fresh lettuce. Wonderful seaside flavours.

We then made our way round to the much talked about Burger Bear stall.

Jack got the Grizzly £10 (above) which has bacon, bacon jam (a recent foodie sensation) and cheese. Although I find a tenner a little steep for just a burger and no sides and buying from a stall – but the price was easily forgotten when we bit into these juicy, meat filled brioches.

I had the Burger Bear £7 (below) – the original Burger Bear cheeseburger. I am not a fan of raw onions so had to pull those out, but apart from that it was equally as delicious. You can taste the excellent quality of the burger meat and it is ever so slightly pink on the inside (perfectly cooked for a proper burger) and still oozing with juices as you bite into it, then there is the cheese melted over the top and then placed in a brioche with all the salad trimmings.
