Chur Burger is just a burger place. They make the whole gamut of burgers, contenders in all basic meat categories with the token vegetarian offer.
I’ve been a little over-burgered lately. There was the Town Hall pub in Balmain with their amazing veggie burger, a lacklustre contribution from the Paragon Hotel down in Circular Quay, and now Chur Burger, who, it could be argued, should be taken a little more seriously. All they do is burgers!
I’m just sad because Adelaide has this amazing burger chain called Fancy Burger, and an amazing American style food truck called The Sneaky Pickle. I never miss places like these more than when I try their counterparts. Sneaky Pickle knows Reubens, pulled pork, po’ boys and the rest. Their flavours are complex and pack a real punch.
Chur Burger’s pulled pork was good, can’t deny it. But I wonder if they pulled the pork to pieces and felt they were done. Where were the spices? The intricacy of flavour? Sure, the mayo was nice. The burger as a whole was nice. The old sugar bun, Mr Brioche, was sandwiching some meat between his buns. Everything was good. It just wasn’t amazing.
The day was grey. Apologies for the photo. It’s a new phone (Nexus 5 in bright red!) and the camera is taking some getting used to.
I’d recommend trying these guys out. They are in no way offensive. They are good. They are not the best.
