The Office on Pirie – Office Burger (2014 edition)

Ahhhhh nostalgia. Taking a trip down memory lane can be great, as you get to re-live things from your past and details you had forgotten of past adventures can come flooding back.

The flip side is of course that sometimes the rose coloured glasses through which you had been looking at a prior time or event get removed, and you are left with the cold reality that you have now ruined a memory by trying to re-live it in some way. In some ways it is a similar proposition to the adage of “never meet your heroes”.

A Hereford Beefstouw – Wagyu Burger

Wagyu.

The mention of this conjures up ideas of an almost mythical cow-like creature that brings with it expectations of the most succulent, flavoursome and amazing beef experience ever. It promises to be the best steak you can ever have. It is also guaranteed to leave your wallet significantly lighter than what it had been before you chose to indulge.

La Boca Bar and Grill – Argentine Burger

Only very recently I stumbled across this place while staying in the Stamford Grand at Glenelg, as somehow we had missed seeing or hearing of it’s emergence on North Terrace (but given I never really go that way, this is hardly surprising).

Despite the fact that Swish had been there for years, and also offered their “Magnificent Seven” burgers – which are still an option at The Grand in Glenelg incidentally – we never actually crossed the threshold and tried the food. However, open an Argentine restaurant, put a burger on your lunch special, and we make a bee-line there pronto.

Kaffana – Traditional Burger

Back to Peel Street we go for another look at a relatively new venue, Kaffana. I hadnt heard of it until I saw the story about 7 new bars in Adelaide, and then discovering they had a weekday burger special on, I quickly decided what my lunch was going to be.

The Robin Hood Hotel – The Hood Burger

With winter being what it has been – cold and wet – we decided a pub trip for a beer and a burger would be a more than acceptable way to spend an evening.

Out of the pubs nearby it was decided that the Robin Hood would be a good fit. It is a great pub that has always delivered on their food over the years, as well as having a great comfortable vibe, especially when the beer garden is in full swing. It is also, for Burger Me, an unchartered burger experience.

Sneaky Pickle – Brisket Burger (sandwich)

Sneaky pickle is one of those food trucks that always seems to have been at the right place at the wrong time for me, or wrong place at the right time. But this week the stars aligned sufficiently to see the truck near to work and no food in the office.

Greeted at the front of the line by the friendly and chatty staff, my order was placed. The food had a decent turn around to come out despite the crowd of people sitting around, and while you are waiting you get to enjoy the aromas wafting from the truck.

They have sneakily put half a cow in my roll here

Recipe – World Cup Burgers – USA – Double Bacon Cheeseburger

Having a Burger World Cup without including America would be like….having a cheese competition and not including France. Or a strange vending machine contest and not including Japan. You get the idea.

Bread & Bone – B&B Burger

Peel Street is becoming another little hub of new and alternative venues. Tucked away down the tiny side street is a small but growing number of venues that are pushing the envelope for what is the ‘norm’ around the streets of the Adelaide CBD.

A wood grill is their point of difference, and this is a something that definitely attracted our attention. Add in that they have only been open a week at the point of writing, then this added to our curiosity. The real deal-sealer was the abundance of burgers – there were no less than 8 on the menu (and only have a pic of their take-away menu, another string to their bow).

Jack Ruby – Smoked Brisket Burger

We all know that from time to time, things go wrong. Despite our best efforts, every now and then things conspire against us and even the actions of others impact on what is in front of you.

Shit, as the saying goes, happens.
