Meat Liquor- Review

I’m told that Meat Liquor do the naughtiest of burgers with all the trimmings, so after months of wanting to go my boyfriend and I finally decided to take the plunge and ventur down. I’ve heard that it gets extremely busy any time after 6 pm and as you can’t book (like every place in London) you’re left with a minimum of around 30 mins queuing  time. To avoid this we decided to head down straight after work and arrived at around 5.45 managing to slip right in without any waiting around.
The restaurant is dimly lit, with animal portraits all over the walls, filament lights hanging above tables and a bit of fake blood splattered on the glass for good measure.
This is no place for veggies.
It had a very southern American feel to it, from the wooden floors, the waiters with their cowbow saddlebags and the rock ‘n’ roll music. I loved it.

We started by ordering some cocktails, the best way to start the week. I really wanted to try the Louisiana Jam cocktail but apparently they were out of jam (?) so I joined T with a Space ‘n’ Smash, a delicious mix of gin and elderflower, a new favourite.

Then we got down to the real reason we were there, the meat. There’s an impressive selection of beef burgers to choose from ranging from the original cheese burgers to one loaded with chillies, mushrooms and jalapenos. And if you don’t fancy beef then you can always have a fried chicken burger or chicken wings smothered in their house sauce.
T opted for the Mushroom Swiss and I went for the Cheeseburger. For sides we had a selection of Cheese and Fries, Phili Cheese Fries and Southern Style Slaw. This is probably the unhealthiest meal we’ve eaten in a while, but it was so worth it. The burgers were cooked to perfection with the right amount of relish and sauce and the chips were smothered in cheese.

After stuffing ourselves silly we planned to venture elsewhere for some more drinks, but as the atmosphere was so good we decided to stay a little longer for a bottle of red.
If you haven’t already been to Meat Liquor I couldn’t recommend it enough, the food, service, drinks and atmosphere were all amazing. I would suggest trying to either go mid-week or before 6pm as weekends and after 6pm are crazy busy so expect a wait, but it’s so worth it.
