If you've smelt the tantalising waft of liquid cheese and beef grilling over hot coals at Brockley Market, chances are it was Mother Flipper. The stall sell excellently constructed concotions including the dirty barbie burger, two patties stuck together with American cheese and coated in candy bacon, onions, BBQ sauce and ketchup. The sweetness of the candy bacon and salty richness of the meat are the perfect partners.

While it's harder than ever to get a seat at Honest ('no reservation' policies and burger bars are comfy bedfellows) the food more than makes up for it; aged beef cooked medium-rare, with a dollop of caramelised red onion marmalade in a soft brioche bun. And the rosemary-dusted fries will vanish in seconds.
