About 4-6 times per year a group of my uni pals get together for a meal in London. Sometimes we really splash out and other times we grab something a little cheaper, however, the idea is always the same to catch up and have some giggles.

The latest meet up of choice was the trendy MEATmission in Hoxton. The main hall, which is where all the atmosphere is, is based on a first come first served basis. However, we turned up at around 7pm on a Thursday evening and found a booth to seat all six of us with no issues. Maybe we got lucky as I have heard of queues but this branch is large so hopefully you won't leave disappointed.

If you like burgers and American grub you will be in for a serious treat here. Our food was all served at the same time on a large tray so we had to get up close and personal to devour our dinner. I went for an old fashioned cheese burger and split a side of fries as well as the highly recommended fried pickles with a blue cheese dip. This was all washed down with a couple of inventive cocktails from the vast list.

MEATmission is loud, dark and large. Service is quick and it's not a place to linger and savor, it's a place to dig in and devour. The burgers here are very good and the atmosphere is post-work fun. There are loads of bars around Hoxton to head to after your meal and with burgers priced at less than £10 you should have enough pennies for a couple of drinks afterwards. There other restaurants in this chain dotted around London so if the East isn't convenient maybe try one of their more central branches!
