02\ TOMMI’S CLASSIC STEAK BURGER
Tommi’s Burger Joint, 37 Berwick Street, London
“A good burger is something you never get tired of,” says Tommi’s founder Tomas ‘Tommi’ Tómasson sagely. And with studies showing the bountiful vitamin A – found in a garnish of lettuce, onions and tomatoes – slows the visible signs of ageing, who are we to argue?
Tómasson is clearly taking his own medicine. Grey-haired, tattooed and muscular, he still works the grill in the company’s flagship Reykjavik location. His lust for life is matched only by his passion for the life-lengthening benefits of a decent hamburger.
Served medium (sorry, Trump), Tommi’s classic is made from cuts of steak from award-winning butcher HG Walter, while the buns are courtesy of Millers Bakery. Meanwhile, the generously slathered mustard packs calcium, magnesium, phosphorous and potassium – essential minerals which combine to crush your risk of diabetes, certain cancers and respiratory disorders. Loaded with energy-boosting B vits along with a few blood-sugar balancing carbs, a single stack won’t derail your nutrition goals, either. If you’re looking to build life-long durability, this is the most delicious of prescriptions.
