The Stag – Jucy Lucy Special (Calabrese)

So just to cut to the chase and answer the question you are all asking, the story is you get some meat – shape it into a pattie but keep it hollow in the middle – and then fill it with cheese (and other goodies) so that when it cooks its all melted and stuff. Genius! Or is it….

Burger It – BBQ Beef It Burger

Burger It – O’Connell Street, North Adelaide Having shared a few post work beverages with my burger reviewing colleagues, I had developed quite the appetite and was on the hunt for a beefy treat for my taste-buds.  As is becoming a theme with these reviews, we had planned to survey a different outlet, but on learning there would be over an ...

Hotel Tivoli

The funny thing about patterns is that they – by definition – keep happening. In terms of the burgers that we are sampling, I see a common thread appearing and, well, you will just have to read on to see what I am on about.

The Dan O’Connell, 4 February 2012 – 2.30pm I could probably not conceive of a more fitting way to kick off a pub crawl than with a burger.  Protein, carbs and some token veg for the liver – perfect!

The Griffins Head

2 Feb 2012 Today’s review would probably be best described as somewhat impromptu.  Very much last minute plans to add a burger to our portfolio found us indecisively standing in Hindmarsh Square in a competitor’s queue.  Unfortunately as far as day jobs are concerned, time was of the essence and we were not going to be able to fulfil our ...

The Office On Pirie – Office Burger

The Office 25/01/2012  – 12pm This was a much discussed and anticipated moment – our first burger review get-together. While Nick and I had both sampled their burgers previously – coincidentally during the same work lunch and were suitably impressed – this of course was upping the stakes somewhat, both for us and for The Office (unbeknown to them of ...

City X Grill

City X Grill – burger with the lot City X Grill. I have walked past there many times over the years, but for no particular reason I have rarely sampled anything from it. However, as with all good sweeping statements, there is one moment that sticks in the memory. While hovering near the ‘Grill, I was insistently tapped on the ...
