Cheap Eats 2018: Lucky Buns

Who makes the best burgers in DC right now? That’d be Alex McCoy, a Washington-born talent of British blood who has traveled extensively in Southeast Asia. At his funky Adams Morgan pub, the menu of Creekstone patties (and chicken sandwiches) reads like a travel log. Eating is no dainty affair—the Lucky Bun is a delicious mess of griddled meat, Gouda, grilled onion, arugula, and chili aïoli, while the best chips (a.k.a. fries) come smothered in tangy curry. Grab a few friends—and napkins—and make a night of it. Also good: Fried-chicken katsu sandwich; ‘Alfie’s Bun” burger; Javan salad.
