My Burger of 2012
For a long time, I thought there was no burger joint in my area until I discovered this Aussie wonder in my local club. Ever since I have revisited this place again and again just to get my burger cravings satisfied. I’ve tried the other burgers – Chicken and Lamb also at $13.50 but nothing can beat the chef’s spicy BBQ sauce in the Aussie version. Don’t get me wrong – the guacamole on the Chicken and the mayonnaise on the Lamb is just as good but it’s just the whole lot – beef pattie, bacon, onion, egg, lettuce, tomato AND pineapple AND the beetroot that just hits all the right spots.
There is also cake of the day to end the night which well sort of also helps you to hit the right spot – in case the burger didn’t already make you :p
This is no longer on the shelves but I have made a mental note that I will ask the chef to kindly make this delicious piece of cake again but I’m guessing it’s no longer on sale because the baking process of this probably isn’t exactly a piece of cake - I mean just look at those layers of chocolate goodness that is calling out to you.
It’s definitely been a burger year – with Moo Cow and Grill’d stores rapidly opening or more like surfacing to my knowledge but since this burger hasn’t been franchised yet and I would like to think I discovered this local Aussie – I’d like to consider this Aussie wonder as my first love in 2012.
Dear Aussie Burger,
I hope we continue our burger relationship in 2013 and I will try my best to not let the other burgers question my devotion to you. Love you always.
