Ever since burger makers cottoned on to the quality and popularity of the iconic In-N-Out Burger in the US, they’ve been trying to replicate it. And this trend isn’t restricted to Australia – many on the East Coast of the US will know Shake Shack, whose own take on the In-N-Out style burger has made them one of America’s most popular burger spots. Not bad for a brand that started as a little more than a food cart in Madison Square Garden 13 years ago.... Read More | Share it now!

After dominating the burger scene up north, and recently expanding to Melbourne, Queensland-originated burger shack Betty’s Burgers has arrived in Sydney, opening up their first shop underneath Darling Harbour’s slick ICC. Bringing their award-winning burgers and indulgent desserts to one of Sydney’s busiest areas, Betty’s Burgers should undoubtedly recreate the same success that has seen them pick up the status as the “Best Burgers on the Gold Coast”, which was given to them last year. ...

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.
