SquareMeal Review of
Stokey Bears Stoke Newington
These neighbourhood burger joints from street food veterans Burger Bear are a temple to juicy buns, combining a laid-back vibe with a run of stacked burgers, and drinks ranging from softs and shakes, to local beers and house-made cocktails. On the menu, you can expect to find the likes of the ‘Grizzly Bear’ topped with double oak-smoked bacon and bacon jam, or the ‘Angry Bear’, which arrives doused in fiery hot sauce and jalapeno relish. Sides meanwhile include cheesy fries, hot wings and mac ‘n’ cheese balls. Head to the Haggerston branch for weekend brunch from 10am, and to try out vegan options such as a seitan ‘chicken’ burger, and the Koala Bear, made from a spiced bean patty topped with avocado, salasa, lime, coriander and coconut yoghurt.
