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.

Recipe – World Cup Burgers – Argentine beef sliders

Think Argentina and you will think of chimmichurri sauce.

Ok, so perhaps you might think of something else…could be steak I guess. Or the football team. Or Messi/Maradona. Most likely you will start singing “don’t cry for me Argentina” in you head. Continue reading

Recipes – World Cup Burgers – French Beef, Blue and Brown

French cuisine is, I am reliably informed by Wikipedia, famous for their rich tastes and subtle nuances and it has a long and diverse history. It consists of things that are both healthy and refined, and French gastronomy was added by the UNESCO to its lists of the world’s “intangible cultural heritage”.

Whatever that exactly means I am not sure, but it does sound impressive and important.

Recipe – World Cup Burgers – Italian Turkey

Having covered off Australia, Brazil and Portugal, two of whom were unable to get beyond the group stages, we shift our focus to Italy. And yes, they have also boarded a plane well before now and headed home. In my own defence though, I made this before they managed to completely under perform in their 2nd and 3rd matches.

World Cup Burgers – Portugal – Beef and Chorizo burger

The Portuguese team have not had a good World Cup. This is a bit of an understatement. They came in with some lofty expectations and at the time of writing this, were essentially out of the tournament with only 1 point from their first 2 matches, including a thumping from Germany.

Kings Head Hotel – Pork Belly Burger

The king’s head is without doubt one of the best pubs around, in our opinion anyhow. It is just everything that we think a venue should be – they have a premium on using local produce, serve up local wine and have an extensive and interesting list of local boutique beers. The physical venue itself is very cool indeed, both the front bar and the dining room more than comfortable places to spend your time, especially with the fire lit and rain falling outside in the middle of winter.

Recipe – World Cup Burgers – Brazilian Burger – X-tudo

There is one thing that needs to be said immediately and that is that this burger somewhat resembles the national football team. Ok, so don’t be holding the burger picture up and compare it to the team pictures from the world cup as this will just look like a very strange thing to do. Nor am I saying that there is a person in the squad who looks like this either.

Twice cooked chips under way

Wine Underground – Slow Cooked Lamb Burger

The Wine Underground has been visited before however for reasons which are not entirely clear, the review was never completed. Without any hesitation at all I can say that it was very good indeed, so it wasn’t a difficult decision to go back for another go.
