I went to this new establishment with a few Twitter buddies @Malchia, @Thecookingchook, @Oliyoung and @radiostarelle.
|The Trucker with hot Chipotle sauce|
On the menu, there are 4 beef burgers, 2 chicken burgers and 1 vegetarian with additional sides and drinks. The burgers came out pretty quickly and were all decent sizes, I ordered the biggest - Trucker which had a hand grounded MSA Grade Angus beef patty, lettuce, bacon, egg, cheese, caramelised onion, tomato ketchup and mayonnaise. I upgraded mine with hot Chipotle sauce.
The interesting thing we all noted was that each burger seemingly had different buns... @Thecookingchook's cheeseburger was a glazed bun, looking similar to Burger Theory's buns, while the others were like damper type buns... all slightly toasted. I prefer my burger buns softer, and a little bit more sweeter.
The taste? It was a bit bland, good, juicy beef patty but nothing amazing, the patty was well done, didn't taste like manufactured meat, but very home-style-like patties. The runny egg added moisture and additional taste to the overall bland burger. I couldn't taste any cheese, or felt any crunchiness from the lettuce. The hot Chipotle sauce was not really hot in my opinion, but added a nice 'zing' to the burger.
However, I am not an expert burger blogger from this blog - those titles go the Nathan and Mirko. I am sure they will visit this place and add it to their burger reviews. Stay tuned!
Hayes gives the burger at Burgastronomy 14/20 chops on the Chopping Board.
