If you only have a few hours on your trip in London, then investing them wisely can go a long way. Please budget a good half hour (queue waiting excluded) to visit Flat Iron in Covent Garden, especially if you’re a meat lover like we are.
Serving a dead simple menu of steaks, burger and fries, Flat Iron launched in 2015 and has ever since been driving hungry patrons in hordes! Sourcing meat from the Flat Iron farm in Yorkshire, this meat joint offers a fast impeccable service and insanely tasty meat.

You just turn up, queue up (for a good half-hour if you don’t avoid peak hours) and basically just order your cooking and the sides to go with your steak. Unless you wanna go big and opt for the deep-fried burger!

One thing we should note is the buttery feel of the meat (yes, we do love olive oil instead but nobody is perfect in this life!) and the cholesterole to go with it. Fries are a must and you should also try the grilled parmesan aubergine!
In the end, you’re handed the cheque along with some bargaining chips to get your free ice cream. Salted caramel on a cone, sprinkled with 70% cocoa filled MAST brothers dark chocolate chips!
