Now installed in Hackney's former gangster hangout, mobile vendor LC's first "residency" will see two sedentary months (possibly more) of their famed "slow fast food", with skin-on fries (cheese, chilli, wasabi & ginger, etc., all w/ optional truffle-oil dousing) siding brioche-bunned meatwiches like the Selleck (oak-smoked bacon, beetroot onion rings, bbq sauce), or the Sheen: le boeuf, plus cheddar, garlic aioli, and beer-soaked onions -- because it takes a man to cry, and it takes being soaked in beer to be a man.
Some pop-ups are too good to stop after a temporary run. That’s the case for Lucky Chip: after a series of successful residencies, they’ve finally opened up shop in Dalston, slinging their “slow food-fast” burgers for the masses. Regulars rave over standout sandwiches like the Kevin Bacon, which features -- yes, you guessed it -- Applewood smoked bacon on an aged beef patty with American cheese and house pickles. Add in the fact that there’s over 100 wines on the list and sultry, gangster hideout vibe that the maroon-walled space evokes, and it’s a great spot for an affordable yet chic dinner.
