Flower Burger

As the Italian rainbow burger chain prepare to open in London Peter Gray wonders if the humble burger will ever be the same again.

If Willy Wonka did burgers – this is what they would look like. With a wealth of funky colours and a host of intriguing ingredients (spirulina anyone?), Flower Burgers have established themselves as the funky but weird alternative to posh burger chains like Bryon and Gourmet Burger Kitchen.

The chain must be doing something right, however, because they have now launched a chain of stores in Italy and France. Flushed by this success, Flower Burgers are now gearing up for their first London opening – in fashionable Fitzrovia.

The venue will be takeaway and collection at launch with their indoor dining section expected to open later in the year. But what of those interiors I hear you ask? Well, you certainly won’t be disappointed as Flower Burger’s interiors are every bit as colourful as their burger buns. Indeed, the London opening is promising ‘psychedelic’ table designs, kaleidoscopic graphics on the walls and swinging chairs. There are even plans for a yellow submarine mural in the basement bar!

The fate of the brand will rest upon the quality of the company’s burgers, however, and it must be said the menu choices certainly do sound intriguing. There’s the Cherry Bomb: a beetroot pink bun, lentil & rice patty, confit tomato and flower cheddar. The Jungle Burger: turmeric & spirulina green bun, red bean & oat patty, Flower cheddar, courgettes, and smoky BBQ sauce.

If you get through that, desserts will include chocolate salami and Crunchy Raspby: a mix of raspberries, pistachios, almonds, and cashews.

Flower Burger, Fitzrovia opens on Tuesday the 21st of January 2021.
