Grazia Visited The Slider Decider And Munched On Burgers Galore
GALLERY >> 9 Burgers From Slider Decider (Warning: Serious Food Porn Ahead)
Last Thursday Grazia went down to what is arguably the best idea for an evening out ever; The Slider Decider.
Set in The Gun in London's Docklands, a charming pub set right on the Thames with a lovely little beer garden, the competition saw chefs from across England compete to have their burger voted number one.
With a team of experts judging their every move, the chefs cooked up everything from pulled pork to langoustine, shredded mutton to cola-pickled onion to make their burger stand out from the rest.
In the end though, there could only be one winner and the Opera Tavern in Covent Garden pipped the others to the post with their Iberico pork and fois gras burgers.
Have a peek through our gallery to see some of the burgers on offer.
