Two giants of London’s restaurant scene, Padella and Patty & Bun, have teamed up to create a pasta burger.
Padella, which is without doubt London’s most well-known fresh pasta restaurant, has (rather surprisingly) decided to collaborate with the ever-expanding burger joint Patty & Bun to launch a limited-edition burger.
The burger consists of an aged beef patty which is topped with Pici Cacio e Pepe, otherwise known as Padella’s signature serve which is a pasta creation made with Parmesan and black pepper. The burger is then finished off with nduja mayonnaise, red onion and lettuce before being sandwiched between a soft brioche bun.
Although Patty & Bun boasts locations across the capital, the burger will exclusively be available at its Borough site, which is just across the road from Padella. The burger will be available for four weeks from 21 October to 17 November.
One of Padella's famous pasta dishes
Padella first opened its doors in 2016 and was immediately met with a raft of critical praise and snaking queues (the restaurant famously does not take bookings). It can also be argued that Padella kick-started the fresh pasta revolution in London, which led to the opening of well-regarded pasta restaurants such as Pastaio in Soho and Bancone in Covent Garden. Earlier this year, it was revealed that the seminal pasta restaurant has plans to open Padella Shoreditch, which should open early next year.
Patty & Bun was founded by restaurateur Joe Grossmann and has gone on to open nine London locations, as well as concession stands at food hubs such as The Prince in Fulham and crazy golf hotspot Swingers in Marylebone. Patty & Bun is best known for its ‘Ari Gold’ Cheeseburger, which sees a beef patty served in a brioche bun topped with cheese, lettuce, tomato, pickled onions, ketchup, and smoky P&B mayonnaise.
The Patty & Bun x Padella burger will be available from 21 October.
