Put your hand up if you like a good burger? Well of course you do, who doesn’t? If you happen to find yourself in central Sydney like I did this past weekend, and are craving a good burger, you are in luck because Neil Perry’s Burger Project will quell your hunger pangs with their tasty offerings.
Located in World Square Shopping Center, it’s the perfect place to grab a quick lunch or dinner if you are visiting the CBD. It’s pretty easy to find, just look for the amazing LED light rainbow stairs and head on up.
Their motto is ‘Fast Food with Slow Values’, and their aim is to take take one of the world’s great gourmet burgers from Rockpool Bar & Grill to the people, but make it affordable without compromising quality.
Everything is house-made and they take whole 36-month Cape Grim grass-fed chuck and brisket steak and grind it in-house to make the patties. There is no ‘mystery meat’ here.
I was invited along with my fellow Bloggerati blogging colleagues to sample some of the menu on offer. I tried the Salted Caramel thick shake and shared a Cheese Burger and an Aussie Burger.
Were the burgers good? Why yes they were, really good in fact. The bun was light and fluffy but had plenty of structural integrity to soak up all the tasty sauce. The patty was juicy and importantly, not greasy at all. I’m a simple girl so I preferred the Cheese Burger ($9.90) but I must admit the addition of beetroot to the Aussie Burger ($10.90) wasn’t overpowering and it was pretty tasty too.
You need to be a real dairy lover to enjoy the thick shake, I’m a bit on the fence when it comes to milky drinks, so this super rich Salted Caramel thick shake was just a bit too much for me. I passed it on to Sarah who eagerly downed the whole lot and gave it a thumbs up.
A better option if you aren’t a milkshake/thickshake fan is the house made sodas served with retro style paper straws. Passion Pop and Strawberry were colourful choices on offer.
Oh and did I mention there was chicken wings, really, really big ones. As appealing as they looked I’d already stuffed myself with burgers so had no room left unfortunately.
Here is the whole Bloggerati gang enjoying lunch.
