FD OUT - Byron Burger - The Gizz-mo

It had been a long time coming to savour the Gizz-Mo after several attempts wondering aimlessly around Soho and Covent Garden one Thursday night, ridiculously refusing to wait over 15 mins, despite our adventure to several restaurants lasting over an hour, and queue time getting longer and longer to each place we went. Hind sight is such a great thing and I was not going to let this stand in my way the next day. 
Thankfully a new Byron Burger had opened up just that day in St Giles High Street, looking majestic in it’s new glass fronted abode. Being not more than 10 minutes walk from work in Torrington Place, this will be a temptation that my waist line probably won’t thank me for.
Anyway to the burger itself…..
Normally if I get a hair in my burger I’ll send it back. However, this burger with a moustache is a welcome exception. With the patty cooked medium-rare, the welsh rarebit (made from mature cheddar, smoked cheddar, english mustard, worchestershire sauce and stout) added an extra dimension to the standard byron bun sending me into a cheesy eutopia. 
It is pure melt in the mouth goodness, and could easy do a few of these a week. It’s a shame the Gizz-Mo is only on for the month of Movember, of which Byron are helping to fundraise, and giving away a free burger to anyone raising over £25 every day (well 7-20th november, but that’s good enough)
Washed down with a delightful oreo milkshake (get the extra malt!) it was well worth savouring.
Till the next time, mange tout
