If you care to stray away from your classic burger order, take it from us – you’re in for a good time. Here’s the best new burgers gracing the capital this month:
What: To celebrate 20 years since The Big Lebowski hit cinema screens (how could we forget about Jeff Bridges’ luscious locks), Lucky Chip have unveiled a limited edition burger. The Lebowski Tower aka The Dude Burger is available at all Lucky Chip sites for the entire month of March.
The Burger: A burger perfect for the Dude himself, the burger features an aged beef patty, Jack cheese, smoked bacon, fried green tomatoes, onion rings, Black Russian BBQ sauce with totally baked pineapple, man.
Where: Lucky Chip at The Old Queens Head, Camden Assembly and the Sebright Arms.
What: This is what happens when you get to know British cheese melting royalty. Mathew from The Cheese Truck has been perfecting grilled cheese at street food markets and festivals for years and has recently opened The Cheese Bar that’s dedicated to cheese, and is just around the corner from Honest Burgers in Camden.
The Burger: Built into The Cheese Truck burger is a smoked, deep fried and crispy British mozzarella, made by Simona, an Italian from West London who smokes it to order before Mathew and The Cheese Bar team work their magic. Stacked on top of the mozzarella is an Honest beef patty (homemade in Honest’s brand new butchery), pickles, leaves, smoked bacon and The Cheese Bar’s chipotle jam. Served with rosemary salted chips, obviously.

What: Here’s some tasty, plant-powered news for you all: Patty and Bun have created a vegan burger and it will rock your meat-free world. The Whoopi Goldberger is Patty and Bun’s latest addition, and it’s a burger masterpiece.
The Burger: The burger features a tempeh and mushroom fritter, pickled cucumbers, diced onion, vegan double smoked gouda cheese, mustard, ketchup and lettuce, all encased in a tasty Bonsoy bun.

What: As well as a seasonally rotating menu, every month The Blues Kitchen sources the best and tastiest ingredients to put together a special burger that is available across its three venues for a limited time. This month, Blues Kitchen are celebrating Easter with one almight meaty bite.
The Burger: The new Bunny Boiler burger is a medley of Easter greats. A rabbit and pork patty is topped with rocket, crispy pancetta, grainy mustard aioli and melted Swiss cheese, all nestled in a Hot Cross bun. A sweet/savoury combo that’s way better than any Creme Egg.

What: Since their arrival on the street food scene, Eat Lagom have been killing it with their barbecued dishes. You can find the guys down at Dinerama in Shoreditch, and they’ve recently taken part in KERB’s inkerbator programme where they’ve produced a new burger. And good grief, it’s so damn delicious.
The Burger: The burger is fuss-free but big on flavours; an aged beef patty is lovingly coated with American cheese, slaw, and dill and mustard mayonnaise. Simple. Classic. Ruddy nice.
