SquareMeal Review of
Chuck Burger Spitalfields
Down the road from its relative Hotbox, this graffiti-clad, stripped-back affair delivers a full stomach for a fair price. Following Chuck Burger Hatch End and regular street food stints, Chuck has actually made a name for itself via its chicken wings, available with lip-smacking buffalo sauce and a blue cheese dip or a less jarring, sweeter Korean coating. Burgers are impressively good value, arriving in sturdy, toasted sesame buns with innovative fillings such as deep-fried noodles or pickled beetroot. We recommend the whopping, dripping buffalo chicken option (you’ll need a large mouth), but don’t miss some of the best and juiciest deep-fried mac ‘n’ cheese balls we’ve encountered in London. A range of milkshakes (with boozy extras) or predictably calorific sundaes will finish you off, while pork fat-infused bourbon helps those meat sweats seep in to cocktail hour. Being stuck at the uninspiring base of Commercial Street means Chuck Burger isn’t a destination, but it plies its junk food wares well.
