Old Street Magic Roundabout

This roundabout in Old Street is actually a one-stop hub for all things food, music and downright trendy. And did we mention that it’s perfectly hidden?

These are the things you need to know about Old Street’s Magic Roundabout.

1. The location

It’s right in the middle of Old Street Roundabout, making it a lot more pleasant to drink in than cycle around.

2. Bangin’ burgers

Nothing beats a juicy burger and one of London’s finest is housed in this magical venue. Burger Bear serves up all different varieties coming with cheese, double-stacked, with Holy F*ck sauce, and vegan spicy bean version.

Check out their menu here.

3. Some seriously good Caribbean chicken

Tuck into some lip smackingly good chicken at White Men Can’t Jerk, where they’re serving up bold flavour combinations and even poaching their wings in Red Stripe. Or opt for a heartier meal like the Curried Mutton Shepherd’s Pie or the Tobago Casserole. Just expect to get something as you smell that good ole charcoal grill aroma because hey, what’s self control?

Check out their sample menu here.

4. Gourmet potato skins
