Lucky Seven Offers Commendable Burgers in West London

I think he's right because the chips/fries, cheese and bacon aren't included in the base price. Burger + bacon/cheese + chips is £11.20. That's a lot of money to pay for a burger that isn't cooked how you request it. Of course something could be over-peppered and whilst we're on it there is such a thing as too much bacon. Looks like a good burger though. Can't wait to see more London options.

Taste Test: Walkers Potato Chips New American Cheeseburger Flavor

These remind me of crisps we used to have when we were kids called Quarterbacks - they were cheeseburger flavoured and cost 10p a pack. Memory doesn't serve me too well but they were delicious to the immature palate.

Looks so so so awesome. VendrTV is awesome.

The Guardian's Tim Hayward Visits Franco Manca Pizza in Chiswick, London

Pizza in London is up-and-coming. It's a fallacy to suggest that there isn't awesome pizza to be had in our city. In the past two years Franco Manca, Pizza East and more recently Santa Maria Pizzeria have made great strides. There's no real 'London slice' to be had but just good Neapolitan pizza to be had right. Give it a few years and who knows?

On another point, It's also a fallacy that Indian food in NY isn't as good as London.

And another, London's ethnic enclaves haven't all been surrendered to the media.

Serious Heat: How Did You Become a Chilehead?

By developing a fondness of pickled jalapenos as a teen. I hardly ever had spicy food growing up but these days I eat and enjoy most levels of spice. I'm a big fan of the mixed scotch bonnet and habanero hot sauce from the Caribbean.

Snapshots from London: Good Eats At Borough Market

The Spanish deli is Brindisa (awesome chorizo sandwiches) but one of the best (British) things to eat is a sausage roll from The Ginger Pig butchers. I wouldn't go to the market for the fruit and veg (I don't personally think the prices are worth it) but there are some great things to try. I particularly love the Cool Chile co and Monmouth for coffee. There are also a few places to eat outside of the market that are worth a look too.
