Tongue n Cheek

Tongue ‘n Cheek’s Heartbreaker is no ordinary burger. The patty is 50% ox heart and 50% dry aged beef – it’s London street food’s flag bearer for nose-to-tail dining.

The patty is so thick and juicy that ours soon destroyed the paper bag it was served in. If you’re eating it standing up, it’s a good idea to hold it well away from your body and take a wide stance.

The texture is quite firm in comparison to a regular burger and ours was pretty much cooked through but it had a deep, meaty flavour and was anything but dry.

We went for the ‘belly connection’ heartbreaker. This gave us a slice of pork belly, some pickled onions, pimento mayo and gorgonzola on top of the patty.

Also worth considering is their porky sub. It’s a toasted roll containing amazingly tender, slow cooked pork cheek and spicy slaw, topped off with a port reduction. Rich, tangy and messy. In other words, great.
