If you are a burger lover then i bet you must have heard of De Burg and their famous tagline - 'Burgers are not Fast Food!'. Good burgers are never fast food.
I attempted to eat at this burger joint twice but it was closed for the first time and it was sold out for the second time. I made a special effort to be there early for lunch on the third attempt. I expected to see lunch crowd but it was rather quiet at 12.30 pm. We were their first batch of customers of the day.
We ordered the De Burg Burger for $18.45 and the Bacon Cheese Burger for $9.85. We added an additional of 100 grams of beef for $5.50 as an add-on for the Bacon Cheese Burger as advised by Chef Andrew.
The burgers were cooked upon order so a relatively long waiting is expected. We waited for about 10 minutes for the burgers to be served. The burger sets were served with a portion of salad made up of wild rocket and red cabbage drizzled with Balsamic Vinegar together with fries.
Their signature De Burg Burger is the combination of a 200 grams grilled Australian striploin patty with grilled bacon and grilled Portobello Mushroom. The patty was grilled perfectly to medium well leaving a little pinkishness that led to a nice tenderness. The patty was seasoned lightly so not too flavourful. It might be done purposely to preserve the original beefy flavour. It was nicely charred with a slight smokiness. No tast of saltiness detected from the crispy bacon strips as it seemed slightly overcooked to obtain the crispiness. The Portobello Mushroom was a good addition. The burger was garnished with a generous bit of wild rocket leaves and a slice of juicy tomato. The buns were nicely toasted and tasted just fine.
The Bacon Cheese Burger consists of 200 grams grilled aussie striploin patty served with cheese and bacon garnished with tomato and wild rocket leaves. The patty was grilled nicely but not much flavour. The bacon strips were not too flavourful as well.
Overall, they served pretty good quality gourmet burgers using fresh ingredients but a little pricey in a coffee shop environment. I am not quite a fan yet but i might just go back if i happen to be in the vicinity and crazing for a better burger.
