Next hit up on Project Burger: The Burger Joint in Darlinghurst.
Don’t be fooled. This place might look like a shabby little hole in the wall, but what comes out of them is actually pretty awesome. With a menu scrawled on the wall, they offer combos to suit all tastes; burger? cheese burger? cheeseburger with gherkin? salad anyone? They even have an option to customise your own burger, condiments and all. WOAH.
I had me a cheese & gherkin burger with salad, which totalled all of $9, and $3 for chips (which, by the way, came with deriiiiicious aioli). For the price, this is a pretty ideal burger: the patty was a perfect medium, the cheese was oozy with the dreamy mix of ketchup and mustard dripping all over my fingers. Love.
This is the kind of simple cheese burger I crave. In fact, I might even skip the salad next time.
