Located near Victoria Park, Homerton and Hackney Wick is The Tiger, a relaxed pub offering quiz nights, sport and DJs until 2am on Fridays and Saturdays.
They have teamed up with ‘My Buns’ to offer a number of tasty burgers that are a bit different to the normal cheeseburger you get at other pubs.
We chose the “BEFFY BEFFY” – Dry Aged Beef Patty, Lettuce,Tomato, Pickled Red Onion, Ketchup, Smoky Mayo served in a Brioche Bun with Rosemary Salted Skin on Fries at a bargain price of only £8.50! They serve the burgers medium but are happy to cook them rarer if you wish.
I just had to try “THE DUKE” which is a Hand Crafted Brisket, Mac & Cheese patty ,American Cheese, Bacon, Onion Rings, Lettuce, Tomato, Smoked Mayo served in a Brioche Bun with fries (I upgraded to sweet potato) – this beast seriously cured my hangover and was delicious!
The Tiger also offers other sides and sharers including mac&cheese, popcorn chicken and nachos as well as a variety of wings, including barbeque, texan, buffalo and korean glazed. 6 for £4.95, 10 for £7.50 and 16 for £10.50!
These are also available on uber eats and deliveroo but I preferred eating them in The Tiger and watching a bit of sport!
