Burger Project

Two burger posts within one week, is that too many? Neil Perry's (Australian celebrity chef) new burger joint in World Square opened on Friday so we swung by for dinner. Generally, I like to avoid newly opened places until the hype dies down, but we thought we'd try our luck and it turns out the wait wasn't unbearably long. It was a nice night too, so we just sat outside.



I feel like the format and branding has possibly been inspired by Shake Shack (which we don't have here). I got the beef burger with cheese, and it was better than your average burger from Grill'd or Moo, but not as good as Chur Burger. It has thus moved into place as my second favourite beef burger in Sydney. The "thrice cooked" chips were sad and soggy though, and Wai Lam's ice cream was $6, which I feel is bit much for a burger place to charge for ice cream. They also have hot dogs and milk shakes (like Shake Shack) which I will be going back to try.

Because I've been doing so many burger posts... best burger you've ever had?

  2. This looks like a nice place! We don't have many, if any, places that mainly serve burgers. A memorable recent burger experience of mine was at Hans im Glück in Berlin.

  3. One can never have too many burgers in a week, haha. They look delicious! They remind me a lot of the burgers I had at Shake Shack in New York, so good.

    1. They weren't to bad, but I think they ran out of buns or something quite early on?

  5. Ooh interested in this place and glad to hear it isn't horrible. I didn't eat at Shake Shack when I went to NYC (twice) and hear mixed things. Are the burgers there that amazing?

  9. That burgers look so good! It is quite difficult to choose the best burger I have ever tried, but if I had to mention one I would say I really enjoyed the one I had at Haché Burgers in London. In Madrid these are becoming quite popular too and many restaurants are opening. One of my favorite ones are from Tommy Mel's, a 50's inspired diner.

  10. Oh gosh, I actually went to grab a burger because your photos made me crave one so badly, haha. Hm, the best burger I've ever had is a tough one...but probably any with bacon and a fried egg. I love em' heavy, haha.

    1. Haha you do! I actually like mine plainer and pared back.

  11. It does look like it's been inspired by Shake Shack! The burgers have the same sloppy/soggy look to them. Also, what is the point of 'thrice' cooked chips? Is that supposed to enhance flavour or something?

    1. I thought they're supposed to be crunchier but they weren't >:(

  12. I am not familiar with the shake shack, but from the looks of it this place's storefront, it has awesome branding. I always get a little weak at the knees for well designed restaurants, cafes, and shops.

  13. I was actually going to drop by on Friday, but decided against facing the lines! Those burgers look goood though... The last one I had was at the Grounds and while it's pretty good, I seriously need to get out and try all the places you listed haha

    1. I still haven't visited the Grounds yet!!

  14. Ha, this is amazing. I never go out to eat burgers to be honest (possibly because we don't seem to have as many brilliant places as I see on your blog?). So I have to cheat and say Jamie's burgers from his 15-minute-meal cookbook? Hehe :p

    1. I bet homemade burgers are WAY better! I've never tried it though!

  15. Can't have too many burger posts! They do look yummy.

    I don't know if I have a favourite. We went to a new burger place that just opened in town, it was OK, but a little expensive for my liking, especially for a lunch. If it was a dinner, I wouldn't mind.

    I think the best 'fast food' burgers we've had have to be Max's Burgers in Stockholm. Oh my. Really freaking good.

    1. Sometime burgers are a bit expensive... but when a place is hyped up it always sucks me in!

  16. we're always trying out new burger places and love shake shack and a place called good stuff eatery but i always go back to five guys, a less fancy burger joint, because i think their burgers are the best :)

    1. Ooh yeah Five Guys, I tried that in NYC! I like their fries!

  18. Oooh looks really good! Best burger I've ever had? It's a tie between In N Out, Eureka! Burger or Smashburger. I don't know if you have those in Australia, but I love them!

    1. We don't have any of them! I'm dying to try In-N-Out!

  19. Vegetarian burgers are so rare to find around here, but I did eat one at this place called Kraze Burger, and it was delicious! And they replaced the restaurant :(

    1. Aw yeah vegetarians always get the short end of the stick. Most places only really have 1 veggie option.

  20. I don't think two burgers in one week is bad! Neil Perry's creations are to die for after all!!

  22. It IS very Shake Shack-like in packaging and presentation.

    I have my regional preferences, but I really like In-N-Out and any burger with avocado and egg on it is bound to win. There's a burger place called Eggslut in Downtown Los Angeles that makes a mean avocado-egg-cheeseburger :)
