October Special: Nigeria

October 5, 2021

A brand new collab with ‘Nigerian tapas’ pioneers Chuku’s.

Chuku’s is run by brother and sister team Emeka and Ifeyinwa Frederick, who opened their first restaurant in Tottenham in 2020. Emeka joined the Honest team in 2016 to learn the ropes of running a restaurant, putting shifts in at our Brixton and Bank restaurants. Meanwhile Ifey did the same at Yard Sale Pizza.

Our collab is a love letter to Nigerian cooking, in burger form. We use a jollof sauce base like we would ketchup and make a mayo from homemade ata din din (hot pepper sauce), taming its heat but leaving lots of flavour.

“We’re proud to have created a burger which is as fun as Chuku’s is, with the Fanta-candied bacon, but also feels very Nigerian. We’re super excited to see the flavours of the much-celebrated jollof stew reach an even wider audience.” – Emeka & Ifey

If you can get to Tottenham we highly recommend you book yourself for dinner at Chuku’s soon. But don’t take our word for it, take Grace’s. Or Jimi’s

NIGERIA: Honest beef, Fanta-candied bacon, cheddar, jollof sauce, plantain crisps, Chuku’s spicy mayo, red onion, spinach and pickles with homemade rosemary salted chips

Available at all Honest Burgers until 01 November
