Burger It – Its All Beef

February 2012 After a hard week’s work, we decided a Friday night burger was a good start to what was looking like a damp and depressing summer weekend in Adelaide.  After much debate we called to place our orders.  It appears this idea was popular as there was an hour wait for our initially chosen burger provider.  After much ‘googling’ ...

The Daniel O’Connell Hotel

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!

Burger Theory – “No.2”

SAMSUNG

Looking up and calling out my order to some dude hanging out of a van in Hindmarsh Square, the smokey aroma of charred meat patties hanging in the air, I must admit I was a a little confounded by the whole thing. Burger Theory – the nigh on institution in and around Adelaide parts – was here again and I ...
