As y’all know, last Saturday was a bit of an ups and downs kinda day. Determined not to let the downs KO the ups, we decided what better else to have for dinner than burgers? YEAH! BURGERS!!
And so we found ourselves at Moo Gourmet Burgers on King Street, Newtown.
I ordered a coke spider to wash down all the beef goodness. It was kinda like a coke spider soufflé. Check out the froth on that thing! LOVE.
Panu ordered the classic cheeseburer [top] and I splashed out a little (all of like, $16) and ordered the wagyu beef burger, which comes with caramelised onions, tomato, mixed leaf lettuce, Tasmanian brie & home-made mayonnaise.
I have to say, the innards of the burger is DELICIOUS. The thick, juicy patties and oooooozy cheese are kind of what my dreams are made of. We didn’t order any sides, although the chippies people were having at the tables around us looked pretty darn awesome. I was saving my stomach for the enormous tub of salted peanut gelato waiting for me at home 😉
So. The verdict? I’m a little out on this one because the burgers were pretty awesome BUT… the buns! The buns were those crispy hard ones which – I don’t know if you guys out there like it – but they fricking cut up my mouth! I’m all for soft buns but anyhoos, thank goodness for the soothing effects of salted peanut gelato so I was still a happy little me 🙂
ps. I miss Shake Shack 🙁

28-Dec-2011: Moo contacted me after this blog post and explained that their buns weren’t meant to be that hard. They invited me back to their Manly branch to try it again. So we went. And the buns were still hard 🙁 The burger innards were delicious though, I just wish they’d use a softer bun. Or is my mouth just weak?!
