The definition of a burgasm is the climax of excitement gained through eating meat, bun and cheese, all at once. And here at FC HQ we love nothing more than getting our chops around a tasty burger that’s oozing from the core. To show you just how much we love these tasty meat morsels we teamed up with top burger joint Byron, and left five glam models alone with them at our Burgasm stand, you can’t even imagine the mess*! We then headed down to their Camden restaurant to try out their offering all for ourselves.

Byron is a pretty laid-back burger joint with a nonchalant vibe to it. Bright and colourful interiors (every restaurant has its own unique design), a simple layout, open kitchen, soulful tunes and a neat menu filled with classics and a monthly special; it’s the perfect place to go with friends, family or to take your new beau (maybe after date 3 or 4.) We rocked up at lunchtime just before the crowds started pouring in, and were greeted by a rather handsome waiter and seated in a booth. One of the best bits about Byron has to be the chilled glasses that accompany everything from the milkshakes to the jugs of tap water to the array of craft beers on offer including their very own lager and pale ale, keeping you nice and icy on a Monday. Once ordered we only waited 15 minutes for our feast to arrive, and knew the special Limited Edition Miami Slice burger was going to steal the show, and be warned this burger ain't gonna be around for long. Thanks to its 6oz hamburger, crispy potatoes, spicy salami, American cheese, smoked paprika ketchup, sourdough bun and the extra helping of chicharrones (aka pork scratchings) and Byron hot sauce on the side, it was a spicy slice of burger heaven. Courgette fries and a dollop of the blue cheese sauce helped everything slip down easier.

If you order a side to accompany your Byron burger, make it the onion rings. Huge crispy rings stacked up ready to be dipped into aioli complement any of the burgers on offer. And wash everything down with a milkshake - we kept it classic with strawberry and chocolate but hear tasty things about the Oreo version.

The good news about Byron is they've opened restaurants in all four corners of London and have ventured further afield to Liverpool, Manchester, York and Milton Keynes. There’s literally no escaping Byron.
