Square Meal Review of Tommi's Burger Joint Marylebone ?

London’s foodies love Scandinavia almost as much as they love burgers, so Tommi’s should please them on both counts. This five-strong chain of Icelandic ‘burger joints’ was founded by entrepreneur Tomas Tómasson, who has been heavily involved in the launch of this first foray abroad. Tommi’s makes use of an American charcoal-grill, but all the beef comes from UK herds and items are garnished in true diner style with iceberg lettuce, tomatoes, gherkins, chopped onion and ketchup. Fries, homemade béarnaise and cocktail sauces, plus a selection of interesting soft drinks and complimentary coffee complete the offer. The joint itself is quite dinky, with just 25 covers, American memorabilia on the exposed brick walls and a big monochrome portrait of Tomas T himself.

    Her Favourite Food :: Tommi's

    Location: Marylebone

    Cuisine: Burger

    Swank Levels: 1/5 – more hip than swanky

    Tommi’s has now relocated from its original pop-up site to a permanent location is Marylebone.
    Originating from Iceland, Tommi’s goes back to basics with its menu and the decor, with its wood and brick walls combined with hand written notices and signs.

    The open kitchen gives a complete view of the handiwork going on in the kitchen space, as well as allowing the juicy smells to waft through the restaurant.

    Nomface :: Tommi

    Thankfully there was no queue at Tommi’s but there were plenty of people waiting inside, half for tables and half for takeaways. The open kitchen gives full view of the burgers being cooked on the grill as well as letting the meatiness waft through the venue. The menu is a simple affair with a few burgers on offer and limited extras. We opted for the ‘Offer of the Century’ consisting of a cheeseburger, fries and can of pop for £10.50. Having paid we waited about ten minutes before pouncing on the vacated window bar seats...

    MotleySpicer :: BurgerQuest: Tommi’s Burger Joint

    Tommi’s Burger Joint is one of the staples of the London burger scene and runs a master class in how to do a simple burger exceptionally well. From the first extended pop-up to the residency at the Princess of Wales, Tommi’s has done a bang up job bringing quality burgers to the capital. So of course, I had to go try out the permanent restaurant on Thayer Street when I found myself hungry after an event at the Nordic Bakery. The restaurant is small and simple but packed with character and a surprising amount of seating (30 covers!). The Icelandic crew are on the ball (mostly) and to top it off there are a ridiculous number of sauces to customise your burger...

    The Insatiable Eater :: Tommi

    You know a picture tells a thousand words right? Well if you take a looksee over there at that cheeseburger from Tommi's Burger Joint in Marylebone, I could probably finish this post right now. I'll go on though (but hopefully not for a thousand words). It looks delicious doesn't it? You just want to eat it and savour every glistening, juicy, cheesy mouthful. You might be able to tell that I like Tommi's a lot. While you could get lost in the burgeoning Bermuda burger triangle just north of Oxford Street, I'd like to resurface at Tommi's over MEATLiquor and Patty & Bun any day. The venue is light and bright (looking at you ML) and I prefer the Tommi's bun over that of the P&B crew. But if there's a food that polarises people more than any, I reckon it's a burger, given the many variables involved in its construction, so feel free to disagree. Tommi's landed in London from Iceland last year in a temporary location before setting down roots on Thayer Street in Marylebone...

  5. Tommi’s is the brainchild of Icelandic entrepreneur Tómas Tomasson. I have no idea who he is. I’m sure he’s a legend in Reykjavik. There were quite a lot of people in there talking very loudly in a language I couldn’t identify. Probably Icelandic then, at a guess. I could hear myself speak. But it was 5.30 and they hadn’t turned the music up in deference to the oldies. And (other than C ) there was, indeed another person of age. The Lord be thanked. And they had every condiment known to man. I was impressed...

  6. Tommi’s Burger Joint is back! This time in a bright, 30 seater venue on Marylebone High Street. If you’re tired of all the hype surrounding the recent launch of huge American burger chains in Covent Garden, it’s well worth checking this smaller Icelandic ‘no-nonsense’ burger outlet instead.

    Culinary Creep :: Tommi’s Burger Joint, Marylebone

    Home I must confess. I am officially off the wagon. The burger wagon. I kicked the habit for awhile. Until now. To be honest, the burger I ate at Tommi’s Burger Joint wasn’t one of the best I’ve ever eaten, but what struck me most was just how enjoyable it was, and I realised – I really really do just like eating burgers...

    love2feed :: eat: tommi’s burger joint

    Support local! This seems to be the mantra I’ve been adhering to, having frequented Tommi’s Burger Joint on Marylebone Lane four times in three weeks and nearby 28-50 on the same street. Admittedly, I have not yet tried the likes of Lucky Chip and Honest Burgers, although He’s a huge burger fan and rated Tommi’s over Meat Liquor. What’s noticeable from my last sentence is that the wave of burger frenzy continues to proliferate in central London. Even more amazing, is that the day He and I decide to pay a visit, we actually see THE MAN himself, Tommi (Tomas Tomasson), king of burgers in Iceland in the flesh himself in London, being madly photographed by a professional looking couple. There’s a genuine down to earth feel about Tommi’s, with menu items scrawled on simple cardboard cutout & paper bag signage and chalk boards heralding inspirational pearls of wisdom… my personal favourite was on my second visit alone… “Dream big… but plan in small, achievable steps”...

    [FEAST to the world] :: Icelandic Burger Invasion - Tommi

    It seems like almost every other day, there's a new burger joint/venture open up on the street of London. At this current saturated market of this glorified street food, do we really need any more of them? And just when I'm pondering about this , a new burger joint popped up round the corner from where I work. Quietly tucked away on Marylebone lane, a stone throw away from my favourite ramen-ya, Cocoro is this Icelandic burger venue, Tommi's Burger Joint...

    Burgerac :: Tommi

    £9.40 for "Offer Of The Century" which equates to a cheeseburger, fries and a can of pop. Cheeseburger on its own is £5.80. Fries: £2.90.People have been raving about Tommi's, the new Icelandic burger joint in town and while I shared my thoughts on its wares in a news post in Burgerapp the day it opened, I thought I'd share them here on the blog too...Burgerac's New York correspondent, Colonel Mustard, dined at Burger Joint in Reykjavik back in March this year, and reported back to the effect that there wasn't much to report. Well, she's a New Yorker and a burger has to be hella good to impress her. Some readers might recall that she controversially gave Shake Shack only four out of five Burgerac stars last year...

    londonfoodaholic :: REVIEW: Tommi

    Tommi’s Burger Joint has finally opened In London. The renowned burger joint which started up in Iceland around eight years ago decided it was time to set up in the UK and sink its teeth into a city going through a food boom. One, which in ten years time is bound to make us all obese. Tomas Tomasson, the founder of Tommi’s has apparently eaten a burger every day for eight years, impressive, and he does not have an ounce of fat on him...

  12. If the queue outside MEATLiquor seems a little shorter at the moment then that might be due to a new player in town… The Icelandic King of burgers. Literally around the corner, Tommi’s Burger Joint is adding fuel to the fire that is the capital’s insatiable appetite for a decent slab of beef in a bun. As soon as we walked into this tiny 25 cover American style burger diner, we immediately felt at home. Of course it had the obligatory London restaurant industrial feel but with a slight little twist, the menu short and the air was thick with the smell of grilled course ground beef steak...
