Anna, I loved the burger at Londolozi

Thank you Joan! Hope you are well and we see you again soon. x

The 1926 is our official first day lunch at Londolozi but the chips never seem to get their fair due in acclaimation … they are easily worth asking for a double order!!!

Well, I had to wait a moment to stop salivating after seeing the burger and then reading the recipe. Now I’m ready to go out and buy some ground chuck and make one. Thank you Anna!

Thanks Denise – let me know how you go! They freeze well as well.

Oh my! How we LOVE this burger! Can’t wait to come back to Londolozi next July..to see you, Anna, AND to savor the yummy, yummy 1926 burger! Thanks for the recipe!

We can’t wait to see you next year!

Would you please tell me what HP sauce is. Thanks Bill

Thanks Bill! HP Sauce is a brown sauce. HP stands for Houses of Parliament and is a classic UK sauce. Delcious with a bit of a kick.

My husband absolutely loves this burger!!

Thank you Kara!

May I have mine ‘bleu’ or at least blood rare🤔. Maybe just beef tartare.👏

Ahhhh Judy, a lady after my own heart! You most definitely can!

Anna, Your enthusiasm is wonderful! .. Your visuals about the burger you make, makes me want to get on a plane and come to Londolozi just to savor your meals!

Thank you!


Anna, Did they ever use wildebeest or impala or any other wild game for this?

HI Patrick, you could use a game meat for sure, we don’t with the 1926 burger.

Also, do you call those potato cuts, French fries, freedom fries or chips?

Thick cut chips! and then tossed in parmesan!
