Want to order the filet mignon and lobster surf n’ turf? Are you feelin’ lucky, punk?

At most U.K. restaurants, you pay for your chips with cash, but at this restaurant, you pay for chips with… chips. All-In Kitchen in Haggerston will be hosting the world’s first pay-by-poker pop-up restaurant, where the price of your meal is determined by the quality of your hand, and if you get a full house (winning 10,000 chips or more), your dinner is on the house. The promotion will run from January 19 through the 21, and kicks off the start of the U.K. and Ireland Poker Tour.

Usually, All-In Kitchen costs about £50 (about $76 USD) per person, but if you play your cards right, your meal could come out significantly cheaper, or even free. However, it should be noted that winning big at casinos, even ones that are technically restaurants, rarely happens.

“Embracing Poker within the dishes was a lot of fun,” restaurant owner Andy Jones told The Independent. I can't wait to see the results and serve up some Aces."


The Pay-by-Poker restaurant experience will be following the poker tour around the U.K. and Ireland.
