Best Burger in London / il miglior hamburger a Londra

My choice is the GBK, gourmet burger kitchen, a kiwi mini chain , with the best burgers, fries and shakes in town.
There are several GBK's restaurants, check the locations.
My favourite location is Belsize park, for a late lunch or early dinner (to avoid the queues) after visiting Camden Town. Catch a northbound bus from the northern-most exit of the Camden Stables that will stop just in front of the GBK in Belsize park.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Il mio hamburger preferito a londra e' quello del Gourmet Burger Kitchen, una minicatena neozelandese di ristoranti per hamburger. Ci sono ristoranti in varie zone, per trovare quello piu' vicino contrallate sul sito di GBK qui.

Il mio preferito e' quello di Belsize park, ottimo per uno pranzo dopo la visita di Camden town (prendere un bus meglio della metro).

per chi viene a londra tra il 23 dicembre e il 2 gennaio

problemi di treni per la stazione di liverpool street a causa di lavori straordinari: tutti i viaggiatori che arrivano a stansted. Per informazioni leggete qui.

in pratica i servizi dello stansted express saranno limitati e sostituiti da percorsi misti (treno + metropolitana), o autobus.

fat tax

so now a new breed of public enemy is born: the fat people, the overweight. and with fat people come hordes of "nutritionalists" and diet people, some of which seem to have no scruple when it comes to advertising their activity, like the "air fat tax" proposed by one of this online dieting guru.
I think people like these are disgusting, taking advantage of people who are already in a world of trouble and are in weak position.
One could think to wish him to fall hill and become obese.
