Back in January I posted about having a low carb burger in LA. This weekend I’m in London, which, while packed to the gills with restaurants, probably isn’t famous either for burgers or for low carb options.
A couple of minutes walk away from Leicester Square I came across Byron. They’re a burger restaurant chain that offers a very interesting take on the burger. I’ll admit I’d never heard of them, but after checking out their menu I thought I’d give them a go. Why? Because they offer a “skinny burger”, which is the burger served with salad on the side, instead of in a bun.
Overall it was excellent, though their salad dressing wasn’t exactly “amazing”.
Service was fast and friendly and the setting was nice and relaxed. The other plus was that there wasn’t a massive queue to get in and get a table, while a lot of places around Leicester Square proper had massive lines.
Why do I care?
Well I enjoy eating out when I’m travelling and I like to be able to order directly off the menu. I don’t like having to negotiate with a restaurant’s waiting staff in order to get a version of a meal that will work for my diet.
So any burger joint that offers a bread free burger straight off the menu is, in my mind, winning 🙂
