This place has a number of locations; you can check out their website for more info.

So let’s just jump in… this is what I had:

Beef Avocado and Bacon Burger (AU$15.50.-)

Beef Avocado and Bacon

WTF?! I thought all burgers in Australia were going to be awesome! Oh how wrong I was. We visited Bondi Beach, and saw this place so we thought we’d give it a go. Looked cool… and had many burgers on offer.  For the month of April, you can add a dollar to your burger order to donate to breast cancer reasearch … and if you do that, you can get your burger on a pink bun. We did. So if you were wondering about the pink bun… that’s why.

But here’s where I had most of my issues… the bun. It was too big. The outside to hard and dry… and the inside too soggy (I hate wet bread). Patty was ok, but a tad on the dry side.

On the plus side, the bacon and avocado were good… and I enjoyed the onion rings, and the view wasn’t bad either.

Ribs and Burgers (Sydney)

Popped in here on my first day in Sydney… figured sitting on a 9 hour flight on a cramped Thai Airways flight next to possibly one of the stinkiest people alive earned me a burger (and cider).

As we were wandering around Sydney harbor, we happened by this joint and am glad we did. I ordered an Aussie burger (minus the egg – not a fan). Burgers run from about AU$ 11.-18 (300-500 THB) and sides are extra.

Overall, I enjoyed the burger. The standout element for me was the bacon… its salty goodness pretty much stood out above all else. That said, when I first picked it up red “juice” seemed to pour  from it onto the plate… I though “damn, that’s a lot of blood for a burger done medium! I then remember Aussie burgers have beetroot on them… and then everything made sense.

Apparently there are branches all across Australia… you can check out their menu and locations on their website. Ribs looked pretty good. Will have to try sometime.

Broccoli Revolution

Broccoli Quinoa Charcoal Burger

Broccoli RevolutionCorner of Sukhumvit 49 and Sukhumvit Rd., Tel. 095-251-9799, Website: FB Page

With a name like Broccoli Revolution, I don’t think it will be a surprise to anyone that their burgers swap out the juicy meat patty for… well… broccoli. Broccoli, quinoa and some chopped onions and perhaps some other things. All vegan, so no egg binders.

Broccoli Quinoa Charcoal Burger with Organic Salad: THB 250.-++

I’ll be honest with you, I don’t really eat many veggie burgers. Surprise. Surprise. So I won’t pretend to be an expert on them. But I can say  this…. I enjoyed it. I would eat this one again, but it would have to be when I wasn’t craving a real, meaty “burger.” While it looked like a
burger, it tasted a bit too healthy to count as a “guilty pleasure” — which for me burgers are… and I like them like that. Part of my enjoyment of burgers is that feeling of “man, I shouldn’t have eaten that” once I’ve inhaled it.

Anyway, so in a nutshell, it was good. Tasted like a warm, mushy broccoli salad in a bun, with pockets of tanginess and sweetness, likely from the mango salsa and guacamole. I ordered mine as takeaway and I’m sure that had something to do with the patty being a bit softer than usual, but not really a big deal; bun wasn’t soggy, so that’s a plus. They give you your choice of fries or salad… I figured, I’d keep this experience as healthy as possible. So salad it was. Nothing really special about it, it was just lettuce.
