Review - Moo Gourmet Burgers

My dining companion had his own mini Man V. Food moment here with the awesome Deluxe Burger ($28).

As he posed with the gravity-defying mountain of wagyu patties, bacon, egg, beetroot, pineapple, Swiss and mozzarella cheese, grilled onions, salad and sourdough...

...I was reminded of the 1970s B. Kliban cartoon depicting a man being served a mound of food with the caption: “Never eat anything bigger than your head”. This burger’s inspired by owner Adam Gerondis’ grandfather, one of New Zealand’s restaurant pioneers, who opened The Deluxe back in 1926.

My own selection, a Piri Piri Chicken ($15) paled in comparison; but I reckon this lil’ beachside burger bar is really about the cow, the certified Australian Angus cow.

If you have the capacity, the generous Hot Chips ($5.00) are chunky home-styled numbers - crunchy outside, soft and fluffy within - best with home-made sauces like Sweet Chilli Jam ($1.50) or Aioli ($1.50).

Drink your favourite candy bar selection in their tempting Moo Shakes - mine’s the Beach Blonde ($6.50).

Parents can quaff a Bloody Mary ($9.50) or a very drinkable Moo Pinot Noir ($6) while the kids are busy with a Little Cow ($9.95) meal. Kudos to ‘em for including a Starlight Children’s Foundation donation in the price, and their wall of drawings get sent to cheer up kids in hospitals too.

I'll leave you with this shot... suffice to say, he finished it!

Tell me please this hasn't taken the place of that little fish place called "A Fish Called Coogee"?

It looks worthy of a try! I can't wait to get back to Sydney and get myself a car. Awwwww yeah. mmm condiment

Nearly across the road from it, yes A Fish Called Coogee is still alive and kicking. Great burgers, you'll love their candy-bar milkshakes if you can get over the calories.
