Burger Bar, Bridge Street, Sydney

Burger Bar, Bridge Street, Sydney

Burger Bar is one of my favourite lunch haunts - it's a clean, slick looking joint hidden away from the hustle & bustle of George Street. I'm really surprised to learn that my last visit to Burger Bar was May 2006 (I'm sure I've been there more recently).

Today we decided to pop over there for an early lunch (tip: get there around 12 - 12.15pm and you have the pick of the tables - any later could mean you miss out on a table altogether or have to stand around waiting). As we scanned the white menu boards and attempted to make a decision my eye caught the waiters bright green grasshopper tattoo on the upper part of her arm but underneath her bicep. It was striking and the colours were incredibly vibrant so we started talking about the tattoo as a line steadily formed behind us.

The Burger Bar philosophy is fresh, delicious food made to order. Their menu states, 'All beef patties are made from 100% premium low fat beef. Our burgers are served on a large gourmet bread roll with Burger bar mayo and crisp fresh lettuce plus any nominated sauces and relishes. Our chicken breast is chemical and hormone free'.

I ordered the BLT - which is a premium low fat beef pattie, bacon, avocado, tomato and their special BLT sauce. Every burger is made to order, so once you order and pay at the counter you are provided with a table number. We chose a table along the wall and within minutes our burger arrived and our small dish of chips to share. The burger are delivered with silver skewers in the top to keep them stable.

The BLT was deliciously tasty - I took the top bun off and kept that to one side with the thick slices of avocado, one rasher of bacon and the special BLT sauce. The other half had the beef pattie, tomato and the other rasher of bacon. The beef pattie was cooked medium so still had some juice in it making it succulent - yum!

We only picked at the chips - I think our eyes were bigger than our bellies. I always enjoy coming to the Burger Bar - it's reasonably priced, clean & quiet (if you go early).
