Sydney’s burger enthusiasts rejoice – another franchise is coming to town.
Melbourne’s video game-themed burger joint 8bit is opening in Darling Harbour’s new eatery street, Steam Mill Lane. Chef Shayne McCallum, who co-founded the joint in 2014 in Footscray with Alan Sam, said the new outpost brought 8bit to a new level. “This is our biggest and baddest store,” McCallum told Broadsheet. “It’s massive compared to Footscray and I think it’s looking pretty fantastic.”
The Sydney store maintains the 8bit blue, yellow and orange pixel design, added with thematic décor that pays attribute to the final level of Super Mario Bros. It boasts 130 seats as well as two arcade machines for fun times all around.
In terms of food, expect to see 8bit’s classic burger menu, such as Zelda (chickpea, corn and quinoa patty), Golden Axe (fried chicken, cheese, sriracha mayo and slaw) and Fatal Fury (hotdog with a chilli and cheese kransky, cheese sauce, chilli beef and jalapeños).
In celebration of the Star Wars day, BL Burgers graced Sydney with the all-new galaxy-coloured burgers.
BL Burgers’ special of the week is Return of the Chedi, a burger with blue-purple “galaxy milk” buns, beef patty, three kinds of cheese (American, Triple Smoked Cheese Kransky and Red Cheddar Sauce), pickles and ketchup.
The burger, sold at $17, will be available until the end of this week at Bar Luca Sydney, BL Burgers Darlinghurst, and BL Burgers Beach Road as well as through online delivery services UberEats and Foodora.
If you’re interested, hurry up – there are only limited numbers each day. May the Fourth be with you!
There’s something appealing and maybe a little bit nostalgic about getting food from a truck. Lucky for us who live in Sydney, there’s now an app to locate food trucks in the city. Here’s a list of food trucks to help you make a choice in your street culinary exploration:
Consistently ranking high in the Fatties Burger Appreciation Society, Mister Gee offers a range of burgers, sides (chips and onion rings) and shakes. Be prepared for the long queue, though!
Urban Pasta (http://www.urbanpasta.com.au/)
The place serves freshly cooked pasta, ranging from fusilli to gnocchi, topped with your choice of sauce, ranging from Napolitano to lamb ragu.
Mama Linh’s (http://www.mamalinhs.com.au/)
Get your Banh Mi fix here! From crispy chicken to shitake mushroom, Mama Linh’s Banh Mi is to die for. If you prefer not to eat bread, they also offer Vermicelli Noodle Salad Bowl that can be served with your choice of toppings. You would find Mama Linh’s truck around CBD.
Eat Art Truck (http://www.eatarttruck.com/)
For an American food truck experience, try out Eat Art Truck’s menu – from pulled pork bun to nachos, all foods are complemented with generous sauce and toppings.
Veggie Patch Van (http://veggiepatchvan.com.au)
Not a meat eater? Veggie Patch Van might be the right choice for you. All of the food choices on the menu, ranging from burgers to fritters and dips, are all veggie-friendly.
There you have it, the top five Sydney food trucks. What’s your food truck pick for this weekend?
We’re all on a quest to find the right burger. A universal quest that’s almost existential for all foodies everywhere. But what makes a burger ‘perfect’? How do we even begin to measure the deliciousness of this sandwich? The ideal meat to bun ratio? The right amount of cheese? How crunchy the pickle is? How perfect the sauce is, marinating in a bed of vegetables? We all have our preferences, but the question begs, where do we find it?
So far, I have compiled a list of places that I’ve personally rated as Sydney’s greatest and the most popular burgers:
The Grill On George (Windsor) http://thegrillongeorge.wixsite.com/tgog
Sometimes the best burger joints are the ones that are worth travelling for. If you’re ever in the North West – particularly in Windsor, The Grill on George is a haven for delicious char-grilled burgers for great value and generous portions.
Chur Burger (Surry Hills/Darlinghurst) http://www.churburger.com.au/ ‘Juicy’ and ‘gourmet’ are words that come to mind when describing the burgers at Chur Burger. If you’re ever around Surry or Darlinghurst, drop by and try their stuff. They serve spiked milkshakes, beers, sweet potato fries and good vibes.
Grill’d Burgers (all around Sydney) http://www.grilld.com.au/
Grill’d Burgers emerged as one of the more earlier favourites before the hype around artisanal burgers. Grill’d Burgers is a chain restaurant available at different and convenient locations around Sydney. If you like your burgers delightfully sandwiched between a crisp bun with thick cut patties, you’re in the right place.
Burger Project (World Square) http://www.burgerproject.com/
Imagine you’re in a lab doing a science project and the experiment was dissecting a burger. That’s what it feels like when you’re eating at Burger Project. Your tray of food is eaten under a incandescent lamp but you don’t even care about the odd minimal interiors because the food is too good.
The vibe and taste is truly American, a great place to hit up if you’re ever in Town Hall.
If you’re after a tasty diner-style McDonalds burger replica served with shoe string fries in a very loud environment, then Mary’s is the place to go to. Edgelords everywhere gather around this bar and you might not get a seat, but Mary’s provides the best sandwich chaser to go with your craft beer.
And there you have it. I hope you enjoyed my list and wish you all the best of luck in finding your own favourite burger place!
