Adam Gerondis has just opened his third old-fashioned Aussie burger joint, but this time he’s stepped away from the eastern beaches and into the centre of busy Newtown. The new store is a light, airy and reasonably elegant place to down a good-lookin’ burger.
My dining companion for this meal was a vegetarian, so I missed out on a repeat of the Man V. Food moment from my last review where I watched my significant other attack the towering Deluxe Burger ($28) and get his noggin in a Polaroid on the wall. Instead we enjoyed their new Lentil Burger ($12.50) with walnuts and potato adding a level of lightness and crunch to the house-made patty on a light sourdough bun;
...and a Felafel Burger ($13.50) which was let down slightly by an average hummus – stick to the tzatziki and house-made chilli jam.
Their fat, golden Hot Chips ($5.00) were a triumph on this visit. Be a devil, add a lil’ Aioli ($1.50).
Fast track back to your childhood with their terrific, calorific Rocky Moo Shake ($6.50) topped by pink marshmallows; it really captures rocky road in a glass. My more sensible companion opted for an Emma & Tom’s Green Power ($4.50) - the most palatable ‘green’ drink I’ve tried!
