As a fairly popular contender on the burger scene, I visited Tommi’s Burger Joint on a friend’s recommendation last summer. Hailing from Iceland, it takes a stripped down, minimalist approach to the burger.
A plain, no-frills burger will cost you £6.90 and this can then be customised as you please with a variety of add-ons. I naturally added fries (£2.75 – I’m sorry, but who eats a burger without fries?!), bacon (£1.00) and cheese (£0.75).
That makes a bacon, cheeseburger with fries, a grand total £10.40, which is about average on the burger scene – although it’s a welcome price range in the Marylebone area.
From what I remember it was a solid beefy offering that didn’t quite ‘wow’, although Tommi’s proved they can do medium-rare successfully. Unfortunately, service was a little icy that day (no pun intended). However, it’s been a year since I was there and Tommi’s has now expanded adding a branch in King’s Road, Chelsea alongside their Thayer Street, Marylebone branch – I’d be interested to know how it’s shaping up. If you check it out, let me know what you think!
