Now that Ramadan is almost over, the hunt for the best Halal burger in London can continue. If you’ve been fasting, you’ll obviously feel like you’ve earned these epic dishes, and even if you haven’t, these burgers are up there with the best in town anyway.

Brioche Burger – Don Vito

When only a juicy burger will do, finish the weekend link a king. pic.twitter.com/IHU5wGGtWz — Brioche Burger (@BriocheBurger) March 26, 2017 A relative newcomer, Brioche Burger is worth the trip to the end of the Victoria line for its wide selection of delicious offerings. Walthamstow is full of fast food restaurants, they’ve even got a halal Nando’s now as well, but this is a proper burger joint offering proper burgers. Make sure you try the Wagyu beef dishes for a real treat.

On a recent trip to Boondocks, we set up one of our editors with the Ultimate Stax Challenge and he failed us. Not surprising really, have a look at one of their ‘regular’ burgers and you’ll get a sense of the portions going on here. The Buffalo Monster is one for buffalo sauce purists.

You know what it’s like when your fasting, you crave anything and everything. No matter how hungry you are though, this is a whopper of a burger that you’ll struggle with no matter how hungry you are. Stax is proud of its well-earned reputation for offering the ‘messiest burgers in town’, so perhaps not one for date night.

Band of Burgers – Signature Big Love Wagyu Burger

We wouldn’t usually suggest a themed restaurant as the place to go, but Band of Burgers is an exception. With a ‘setlist’ instead of a menu, the food is all themed around music. The star of the show is this beauty, a Wagyu beef burger served with bone marrow on the side. This will send shivers up and down your spine.

Winner of the National Burger Awards 2017, beef and lamb combine in this epic clash of meat from South London (other branches also available) purveyors of funky burgers. Meat & Shake also has a few surprises on the menu that are best discovered on your own but make sure you order the Smoking Bandit. Your Instagram feed will be off the chain afterwards.

Baba G’s Bhangra Burger – Naga Delhi Double

Restaurant, Street Food, Indian
Stuck for something todo today come and pig out @KERB_ #alchemysc. And get one of our Naga Dehli Double pic.twitter.com/xwOjvaOUSX — Baba Gupta (@BhangraBurger) May 20, 2017 Street food doesn’t just have to be halloumi fries and disintegrating wrap, which Baba G’s proves with this gargantuan burger. Stacked, in every sense, the kerb-side enthusiasts at Bhangra Burger have the Naga Delhi Double on the menu and it’s apparently so big that ‘your jaw will ache by the end of it’. We think that’s a good thing…

Burgista Bros – Portabello Burger

Don’t worry, we haven’t temporarily lost our minds. This isn’t just a mushroom in a bap situation, which is often the default when halal meat is left off the options list. There is a hefty beef patty in here, topped with shaved truffle, olive chutney and, yes, mushroom too. The extra toppings include turkey bacon, another one of those head-scratching concepts we would usually dismiss if it weren’t so darn tasty.

Is it a burger or not? Debate still rages, but no one can be in any doubt about just how good this pulled-lamb dish is. Dishoom goes from strength to strength, with several branches opening across London in recent years (as well as one now in Edinburgh too), but you’ll have to head East to Shoreditch to try this beauty. It’s just as well that the sides are on the light side as the bun and filling are more than enough.
