Updated: 23 June 2017
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.

Fatburger – XXXL FatBurger

A little on the pricey side, the classic Fatburger is still the closest you are likely to get to an authentic American burger in London. The options usually mean more patties to the burger, and when on a post-Ramadan binge, no one is going to complain about that.

Brioche Burger – Don Vito

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.

Boondocks – Buffalo Monster

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.

Stax Diner – Frankenburger

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.

Meat & Shake – Cool Joe, Mean Joe, Killer Joe

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

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.

Bird – Buffalo Blue Burger

Chicken burgers have a bit of a rough-and-ready reputation thanks to the overwhelming choices on offer in your average high street. If you do feel like chicken tonight, tomorrow or anytime, then BIRD is the place to go.

Dishoom – Lamb Raan Bun

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.
