This must be the dream for the burger lovers from up north. Meat dipped in gravy. On top of that, roast beef on top of the patty and wow we wow wow.
Dip n Flip is burgers with an added twist. Here they provide you with the classics such as cheeseburgers and bacon cheeseburger but add the element of gravy with it too. The aim here is to dunk your burger into this gravy; it's almost akin to dipping your shortbread in your tea. A dream combo.
As is becoming too familiar, I have wanted to come to Dip N Flip for well over a year. Unfortunately as I am in North London and very lazy, coming down to Clapham is a big deal for me. I put it off for a while but this week I had the perfect opportunity to go.
London isn't the biggest city and traveling around for food, can definitely be worth it. Meeting with friends we made our way to the table, a high table with stools all around. Although not the most comfortable you feel relaxed and not like you are in a rush. After a little nudge we ordered all our drinks and went to look at the menu. I did my research and knew what to expect. Basically meat with more meat. The option I went for was a beef cheeseburger with roast beef on top. This is called the Dip & Flip. Obvs.
So how good is it? A good gage is how upset I get with a few bites left. When you have a good burger you don't want it to finish. I was upset but not so upset at the end. The gravy is a great touch, not overly seasoned but juicy. Grabbing the burger, you dip it into the gravy and stuff it into your mouth. It's a bit messy, but manageable. The burger was good, but unfortunately it is not my favourite. I felt like a bit more seasoning was needed. The roast beef is a good idea, but part of me thinks that some smokey bacon would be better instead. The added salt and texture may make it a better meal.
An important note to add with Dip n Flip is their chips, aka their version of Poutine. Chips, cheese and drenched with gravy. This was a special amount of gravy, the chips were swimming in the juices and because of this they lost a lot of their crunch. These chips are a win and would be something I would be happy to see in more places. I think I prefer this style of cheesy chips rather than that at Shake Shack (just saying).
A good burger addition in London and I hope they open up a branch closer to central London and north London too. Thanks guys.
