Chur Burger makes me purr ~

Restaurant: Chur Burger
Location: 48 Albion St, Surry Hills

Variety of spicy sauces to choose from
A lovely sunny spring day, my aunty calls me and asks whether I wanted to go lunch and a suggestion as to where as the not-so-little cousins were on school holidays.

Well, Chur has been very anticipated for a while now – so low and behold we found ourselves waiting for about 10 minutes before sitting on a bench. The little diner is buzzing with people on their lunch break. Looking at all the photos prior to coming, I must say I did think the burgers were slightly bigger…

Milo Milkshake, Strawberry milkshake & Salted caramel milkshake $5
Served in paper cups, comes our milkshakes! The milo milkshake is nothing “spectacular” would just be your average milo and milk – which was still very appetising for a nice warm day.

Pulled pork Chur bbq sauce, red slaw, fennel mayo $10
Pulled pork goodness!! Hello stringy bits of pork, you lovely thing!! I’m not much of a barbecue sauce fan, so the sweetness wasn’t a win. However, I simply lovely the crunch the red slaw had with the pork goodness, mixed with a lovely fennel mayo. Barbecue sauce perhaps was forgiven haha!

Crumbed fish fillet, pickled cucumber, lemon mayo dill $10
Just adding the other burgers for your eyes, as I didn’t get to try them …

Sweet potato fries $5
SWEET POTATO FRIES!! So soft and fluffy when you bite into the crisp exterior! It wasn’t crunchy, but I really enjoyed it thoroughly.

Coleslaw $5
We order a side of the coleslaw, unfortunately it wasn’t a winner… it didn’t have much dressing to offer us anything to wow over.


With the special designed by Ramen Raff, Feli and I were so eager to go try the pork belly burger that we … didn’t look at the opening hours enough and were merely (an understatement) over the moon knowing they opened for dinner.

So, just a heads up… Chur is closed on Sundays and NO DINNER ON MONDAY NIGHTS! We should have known, as parking was really easy to find on Monday, but a horror on Tuesday! (Yes, we went back the following day – that’s determination I tell you!)

Pork Belly with chilli glaze, apple celery slaw & aioli $10
The soft pork belly almost melts in your mouth, why almost? Because you’re offered that little bit of crackling, which you have to tackle as well – which is AH-MAZING! The apple celery slaw just gives you that freshness in the whole experience!

Oh! And a warning, be prepared for all those sauces to drip over your hands, but hey – that’s the goodness of burgers right?

Be sure to make your way down there before the week ends, as this goodness is only here until the 30th November!!

Well … until next time,
