Cult London burger pop-up — Burgerac’s Burgershack — will make a return to the Royal Oak pub in Marylebone next Monday 23 October, after nine months away. It will run until the end of the year, they have announced on their website.
The clandestine “burger blogger-turned burger flipper,” Burgerac was among the first-wave of London’s ‘gourmet’ fast-food style burgers, a sector now dominated by Meatliquors, Honest Burgers, Patty and Buns and Bleeckers.
The menu will see a return of many of the original menu items, including London’s original riff on a Big Mac, the Big Shack — a split bun, double patty, shredded lettuce, diced onion and special sauce combination.
Elsewhere they say, as well as their Hubba Hubba (as above but with chipotle burger sauce) there will be the “the signature Burgershack burger and the delicious Chickenshack — plus a brand new take on a veggie cheeseburger, and a tip-top fish finger bun.”
Amazeballs and Chilli Poppers — two sides — will also be making a comeback and, they say that each week there'll be a different special, paired with a beer. The Burgerac Burgershack — which makes clear it “is an independent company that has absolutely nothing whatsoever to do with any other business with the words "burger" and or "shack" in its name” — is supported by Camden Town Brewery.
Burgerac’s patties are made with aged chuck, brisket, rib cap and bone marrow from Nathan Mills at The Butchery in Bermondsey and will use three different burger buns across the menu.
The full menu will be published next week.
