There’s more to Clapton Junction station than a gigantic transport hub.
Exibit A: Local-favourite joint Ben’s Canteen.
Obviously, it got me at striped awning.
But neon lovers should feel right at home too…
There’s also a gorgeous bar, serving up faaaaaantastic frosé cocktails.
And if you’re still looking for a sign to justify commandeering a table…
… well, here it is!
Better go hungry though, because the menu is full of amazing options.
There’s finger-licking good pulled pork & guac’ nachos.
Because there’s no such thing as too much guac’… and a bit of aworkout can’t hurt before moving on to the main event!
Though to be fair, the special BrewDog burger (two beef patties, double smoked cheese, streaky bacon, BrewDog’s flagship Punk IPA barbecue sauce, stacked with crack fries to give it that extra crunch) will give your jaw plenty of exercise!
If you’re after something a bit more novel, try Ben’s Canteen’s National Burger Day special: the Juicy Lucy Goat Burger – just think goat’s cheese IN a goat burger!
I’m still the worse French person on Earth and don’t like goat’s cheese, but even I had to admit that was a winning combination!
So yeah, burger goats achieved!
Now, let me tell you one thing about Ben’s Canteen: the burgers are good but the fries are NEXT LEVEL.
Buffalo-fried chicken chips with homemade sauce, house ranch and blue cheese, nachos-style, Chip Shop-style or (my personal favourite) Korean-style, complete with deep-fried pork belly, kimchi, crispy seaweed and Korean hot sauce… Picking just one is basically impossible!
So better get a bunch of people together and head to Ben’s Canteen… Not having to choose will be the #1 reward for strong, burger strengthened friend-chips!
