A New Zealander friend with whom I was discussing "eat your way around the world in London" pointed me to the Gourmet Burger Kitchen.
Gourmet Burger Kitchen was developed by three New Zealanders who craved the way food tasted back home
According to my misty eyed, nostalgic informant the unlikely sounding kiwiburger (beef, beetroot, egg, pineapple, cheese, salad & relish) is the very essence of New Zealand in a sour dough sesame seed bun.

Noting with approval that Peter Gordon, whose Cook: At Home with Peter Gordon of the Sugar Clubhas done sterling service in my kitchen for years, had consulted on the menu we presented ourselves at the Wimbledon branch last night.

It was great fun, though now I've done my duty I will probably steer away from the beetroot, fried egg, pineapple combo in future.
