Burgerac feature in Creative Review

Gavin Lucas

Getting a mail from Creative Review magazine asking to interview me for a feature was a total surprise – and a total delight! Those that know me will be aware that I spent many-a-year (over ten) in CR's editorial team under the nurturing mentorship of editor Patrick Burgoyne. When I left in 2013 it wasn't because I'd fallen out of love with all that CR does but rather because I felt inadequate in a relentless world of journalism that had changed beyond recognition in the 12 years I'd been a journalist. I'd got to a point where I knew that what made me tick was collaborating on long form projects – like writing or editing books, or working with illustrators to conjure up and create products. I suppose my decision to leave came down to a desire to be doing the kind of creative projects that might actually be of interest to CR's editorial team – rather than one of the guys writing about them. 

So, yes, Creative Review's March 2017 "Food Issue" features an 8-page piece on me and my various burger-filled adventures since starting up this here blog back in 2011. Needless to say, I'm super-chuffed, not least because the piece serves as a great showcase for some of the work created for / with me by a host of brilliant collaborators, namely illustrators Jon Boam, Rob Flowers and Damian Weighill; design duo Crispin Finn; app publisher Blue Crow Media, and publisher Nobrow.

The cherry on the cake is that Rob Flowers' artwork for my latest food venture, Sonic Sandwich, has been appropriated by CR for the issue's front cover - a great honour!

Burgerac's Burgershack wrap party

Gavin Lucas

After two and a half years of burger filled adventures, Burgerac's Burgershack is winding down its operations at The Royal Oak and also at The Social. We've had a blast and learned a heck of a lot about what it takes to create a brand, work with amazing suppliers, design delicious dishes, devise menus, run kitchens and so much more. But now we need to take some time out before regrouping and moving things forward.

Before we hang up our burger flippers, we're gonna have a party at The Royal Oak on Saturday December 17th with DJs Diddy Wah and Dean Chalkley joining me behind the decks. For early birds there'll be pickle backs and sliders – and for all comers there'll be a chance to enter a raffle to win awesome Burgerac's Burgershack prizes.

It's a party and you're all invited! Come and help us celebrate all we've achieved since we opened in 2014!

Da Birdhouse burger, The Bird Express (Berlin)


€12.50 for this loaded bun of awesomeness in Berlin's The Bird Express burger joint and smokehouse. Money very well spent.

After many years of taking down epic eats, mainly, but not exclusively, of the variety housed betwixt two buns – it came as something of a surprise to find myself having a practically epiphanal burger experience in a laid back burger joint in Berlin's upmarket shopping district, Mitte...

I know. Big statement. But therein lies the primal power of the ingredient combo that makes up The Bird Express's Da Birdhouse burger. Two thick beef patties (each perfectly pink in the centre as per my request), thin cut streaky bacon, fried onions, American cheese, ketchup, mustard and really fucking good (and by really fucking good I mean super sour and salty) homemade pickles – served in an unusual but rather splendid super soft and light muffin-like bun and accompanied by a mound of fries. Wallop! It won't win any prizes for innovation, but wow it hit the nail of proverb squarely on the bonce with impressive aplomb. If someone tells me there's a better place to get a burger in Berlin right now, naturally I'll be intrigued. But, I won't actually believe them.
