Cowcross street already has some amazing restaurants, from Polpo that opened last year to Hix and across the road on St John Street; Burger and Lobster. We are spoilt for choice.
On Wednesday evening we were trying to make such a choice and walked by the brand new – freshly opened that day; Byron Burger. Earlier on that day it did not look nearly ready to be open for business. What a result.

We sat down to order and decided it was a treat day. Bottle of fizz it is. Happy Hump day to us.

When the food arrived we pretty much inhaled it, in about 5 seconds. The mac and cheese was totally delicious. As good as any you'd have as a main course. Fries? Pretty standard fries, but the addition of the nice cholula sauces on the table kicks them up a bit. The onion rings although looked a tiny bit greasy were delicious. And hey, who is against a bit of grease here? We're not in a salad bar.
The chili burger was stacked pretty tall with fresh green chili (not chili con carne Carrie...) and topped with loads of melted cheese. Yum. The burgers are all cooked to a nice medium, again, a little bit of grease but it feels too god to be bad...

The desserts looked totally delicious, peanut butter and chocolate brownie together? Hmmm they also have a selection of delicious shakes. We couldn't do it, we were too stuffed. What a let-down!
We finished off the bottle letting out periodic groans. Luckily I was in leggings not night jeans...
Due to it being open day the meal was totally comped. All we paid for was the drink (and very large and well deserved tip!) we will definitely be coming back, lunch - dinner...how's breakfast?
