5: Cheeseburger at Lucky Chip (£8.25)
Like a number of entries on our list, Lucky Chip started life as a humble burger van flipping patties for lucky east Londoners. It retains its nomadic nature but parks up for longer stints these days, its latest location being Birthdays in Dalston. The juicy, messy, oozing Royale wit Cheese nods to the McDonald’s classic but is executed with more flair and downright deliciousness.
Dripping with fiery mustard and sunshine yellow American cheese, and loaded with pickles, this humble cheeseburger proves sometimes the simple things are the best. You need one of these in your mouth. Notable mentions also go to the Kevin Bacon, John Candy and John Belushi burgers.
