Lucky Chip

An icon on the London burger scene.


There is no doubt that Lucky Chip is one of the best burgers in London, what began life as a humble London Fields burger stall with pop-ups here, pop-ups there now has a permanent restaurant sat proudly in the heart of Dalston, and has become iconic on the London burger scene with sites in Islington, Camden, and inside the Sebright Arms of course.

So, we’ll get the bad part of the review out the way. What is the only downside to visiting Lucky Chip? Which burger to order.

You are spoilt for choice and it’s hard to resist just over ordering and getting the lot, you can also upgrade if you wish by adding a second 50-day dry-aged Galician beef patty for £3. The menu at Lucky Chip has a more grown up feel than other burger joints, most likely due to the huge wine list on offer.

One of the standouts is the smokey El Chappo, and is founder Ben Denner’s favourite! Inspired by Mexico, it combines an aged beef patty with tangy blue cheese, crispy smoked bacon, jalapeños, garlic aioli and spinach. Sounds straight forward, but the taste is incredible. Explosive. We ate EVERY last bit.

Another great point to add is that although it’s sitting in popular Dalston, you can enjoy a burger and beer for under £15. Done deal.
