The Diner (Kensal Rise)

Almost everything about this place is great. Red neon exterior sign, red booths, well chosen old rock n roll background music, cool looking bar, retro american diner styling and genuinely friendly staff. The Diner has all those facets of the classic American diner that i love so much. I've been waiting to eat here for ages. Just walking in put a big smile on my face.

Be Frika, Buenos Aires

Something a bit different here, i was in Buenos Aires recently to see the sights, eat as much 'bife de chorizo/ancho' and drink as much Malbec as i possibly could. Whilst looking for lunch one day I was fortunate to stumble across this place. Be Frika is a cute little burger spot in a nice part of town. They sell 'Tini-Minis' which are small sliders with a choice of interesting toppings. The venue is very much an independent fast food joint with orange livery, plastic seats, free wifi, papers, magazines, chilled music, and a big list of cocktails. Its a peaceful environment to relax and eat in.

Meat Liquor. Dirty name, dirty burger

Yianni Papoutsis's first proper restaurant was bound to be interesting, and the evolution from Meateasy to MeatLiquor didn't 
disappoint. Apart from maybe waiting 1h45mins from arrival to burger...
