Pop-up diner Psychic Burger has returned to Hackney with a new kitchen residency at the newly refurbished pub, The Victoria in Dalston.

The restaurant made its debut at Birthdays bar in Stoke Newington, where the year-long stint included burgers made from soft-shell crab and controversial horse, before making its way to the Old Queen’s Head in Islington’s Essex Road.

Now the trendy burger concept brings its cool American diner-style wrapping and plastic baskets to the pub and live-music venue in Queensbridge Road.

Billed as food designed for music lovers, the juicy beef burgers dripping with cheese and encased in a brioche bun are perfect fare for a night out at the pub.

Prices are reasonable, starting at £7.50 for the classic, and £8 for the psychic which comes with a special sauce.

Alongside the old favourites, shawarmas also make an appearance, and I relished the crispy sweet potato fries.

The pork rib starters are not to be missed, and the huge deep-fried gherkins are really rather tasty.
