Burgapalooza is bringing Sydney’s best to Marrickville this weekend

With last years inaugural event a runaway success, the well-connected team behind Hashtag Burgers are itching to bring Burgapalooza 2017 and stretching it to much bigger scale. Whereas last year’s burger-focused festival was rooted in Manning Bar, this year brings the two-day eat-a-thon to Marrickville’s leafy Fraser Park (after nonsensical complaints from Newtown locals) with a beastly line-up made from some of the best in the business....

Belly Bao embrace the baoger with new flavours and weekly specials (Sydney)

If you know your burgers in Sydney then you know Belly Bao. It’s not a dedicated burger joint like Guilty or BL Burgers, but for quite some time now they’ve quietly been making one of the best on the scene. Every Thursday they offer a special simply titled “The Baoger”, a beef patty with melted cheese, lettuce, radish, onion and special sauce in between two slightly steamed, crispy and fluffy bao-ger buns. It’s one of the most perfect hybrid foods to ever hit Sydney and has been a constant sell-out with discerning foodies since it was introduced in 2015.... Read More | Share it now!

Review: Gojima’s crispy rice burgers taste like another win for Chase Kojima (Sydney)

Just when you thought Sydney’s overcrowded burger scene couldn’t get any bigger, renowned Japanese chef Chase Kojima, who is responsible to the Sydney’s highly regarded Sokyo and Gold Coast’s equally superb Kojima, has officially thrown his reliable hat in the ring and purposely hit left of centre. Kojima has gone for bun-less burgers, but you’d be off the mark if your mind jumped straight to lettuce cups; the chef has opted for sushi rice “buns”, meaning that your typical burger filling is sandwiched by two thick cakes of crispy sushi rice and a big nori seaweed wrap. Gimmick? Nope, it’s just a refinement of an underappreciated form of burger (similar to the ones at famed Japanese chain MOS Burger) that packs some serious punch and just may surprise the more skeptical burger fiends amongst us. ...
