Elliot's lunchtime-only cheeseburger, Borough Market

It was Daniel Young who first brought Elliot's Cafe to my attention when out of nowhere they jumped straight into his top three London burgers a little while back. Its taken me a year or so to try one due to their ball punchingly annoying unusual policy of only serving their burger at lunchtimes from Monday to Friday. 
Luckily i got to try their burger entry for London Burger Bash and it was seriously impressive. Understanding our plight, Elliot's very kindly hooked us up with a Saturday lunchtime burger under the proviso that we keep it absolutely top secret. So please don't tell anybody, or nag them to sell you burgers at the weekend. Actually no, perhaps you should nag them to sell burgers at the weekend, tell them its for the good of humanity or something.

Naughty Nuri's, Ubud, Bali.

Naughty Nuri's is something of a local legend here in Ubud, a small town in central Bali that claims its the cultural capital.  The venue is a roadside diner type wooden shack with around 4 largish tables inside and 3 out front. People are seated Wagamama-style at these shared tables enjoying the smell of cooking bbq sauce wafting through the air all the while. At Nuri's they stray from the traditional Balinese menu and offer up super tasty BBQ and burgers as well as some excellent cocktails. Celeb chef Anthony Bourdain claims the martini's at this little Balinese shack are the best outside of New York City.
