Lucky chip, Seabright arms
Lucky chip is another one of the burger places that seems to be on everyones top 10 list so it would be rude not to try it out. I went to the Seabright arms to try it out, serving from 6pm with a traffic light which goes green when the kitchen is open (was it the greatest drunken steal of all time?) They are also at Netil market.
The Seabright is a pub i would go to without the burgers, the selection of beers on tap was massive and have a huge board of all their current offerings with the price and abv included. which is handy as they had 10%+ offerings.
I am not sure if the bun is steamed to get it warm or not, but from how soft this bun is i would be impressed if its not. A generous amount of shredded lettuce as well brings a refreshing crunch to each mouthful. I sampled the ‘kevin bacon’ and the ‘lucky burger’ with a cheesy chips side. The cheesy chips weren’t anything to write home about but the burgers were great. Medium patty with ozzy american cheese, the mentioned mound of shredded lettuce, tomato, mustard, ketchup and pickles. The Kevin bacon, as the name suggests it had applewood smoked bacon which was nice and crisp and a very tasty patty i was very happy gobbling my way though. The Lucky burger had Cheese, grilled onions, lettuce, tomato and lucky mayo. I preferred the lucky mayo to the ketchup and mustard and as with the Kevin bacon the bun was really soft and the lettuce plentiful.
I enjoyed these burgers and the Sambrooke’s pale ale that i washed it down with was delicious. Next time i will not be driving so i can take advantage of all the craft beers to sample!
