Greedy Bear, Burger Bear, Red Market London

Burger: Greedy Bear
Price: £7.50
A burger that would have satisfied Goldilocks and the three bears

Location: Red Market London, Old Street on Thursdays & Fridays
Website: burgerbear.co.uk
Twitter: @burgerbeartom

Long before Burger Bear won the EatMeUp burger battle he had been on my to-do-list but it was an act of kindness I saw on twitter that pushed him to the very top. 

Original Fry-Up Material breakfast food truck had broken down around Old Kent Road and Burger Bear Tom not only offered assistance, when a cheeky request for tea and burgers came, Tom answered it.


Located on a side road just off of Old Street it's quite easy to walk past this; I had my iPhone directing me and I still managed to just over shoot it. 

Excellent graffiti art covers the walls around his food stall, when I visited I think this was the only stall erected (however I may be wrong as I was chatting to Tom about burgers we enjoyed around London currently) there were a good few benches to eat on however I had to get back to work so this wasn't an option. 







I went for the Greedy Bear burger which is double patty, double jam, double cheese and double the bacon; it sounded like this would have been enough for Goldilocks and the 3 bears. 

An almost perfectly formed cubed patty is placed onto the grill before being flattened down and seasoned with salt and pepper. Once flipped a couple of times the jam is spread across the patty and then 2 slices of some of the thickest slices of cheese and bacon I'd seen placed on each patty across, steamed, stacked and placed into the bun where it sits on a bed of finely shredded lettuce, red onion and gherkins.

Again another rush back to my desk with burger in hand, so there is a chance for the burger to over cook and especially with a double for any structural weaknesses to be accentuated. 




The burger is a monster, ever so slightly too big for a comfortable mouthful but a mouthful full of excellence. 

The double beef patty is excellently cooked with a bite on the surface and a perfectly pink centre. Seasoned well with an emphasis on the pepper which I loved. 

Next up is the bacon, word is the bacon is bought smoked but Tom then decides to smoke it himself; this double smoke flavour really is superb. It is a bit tough on the bite through but once in the texture of crisp and chewy bacon and the flavour really is as good as I've tasted. 

The thick gooey cheese is steam melted well but it's the jam that really is good. It gives a sweetness and heat throughout consumption which really is top draw. JAM JAM JAM! 

The bun got tossed and squashed but still managed to last till the end; well played.


A scrumptious burger which only issue for me was the colossal size of it, but this is called a greedy bear for a reason. I can bearly wait to get back to try the single patty version as with a more manageable mouthful and less beef the ensemble of beef, jam and bacon is very exciting.

Burger Bear is rumoured to be at Red Market London for 3 days a week soon so add him on twitter to get the latest info.


Overall Rating 8/10

  1. Looks fantastic. Properly shaped and seasoned meat - can't wait to try.

    A fiver for the more modest one is a great deal.
