Enuf Burger Bar – ‘Beef eNuf’
I’ve been back here a few times now. Unfortunately for me and everyone else who lives over the other side of town – it’s not exactly a quick meal solution. As you will see however, we recommend you make the trip as often as you possibly can.
Pictured here with the sesame roll. My preference is the white damper.
As mentioned, this was about my 5th visit, the first few being accompanied by the type of hangover that could only be matched by something you’d see in a similarly titled Hollywood film. I thought best re-visit the venue to properly collect my thoughts and do a decent review. I placed my order for the “eNuf Burger” and figured best see if lightning does indeed strike twice (or three or four times) in the same place.
The Venue, Staff & Service.
There are two enuf burger bars – one at Glenelg and one at Brighton. Having only visited the Glenelg venue on Anzac Highway I can clearly only comment on that one.
The menu is extensive with a range of burgers appealing to all kinds of tastes and moods. 7 varieties of chicken, 6 varieties of beef, 2 of lamb, 2 of fish, 2 of veg and 8 breakfast options. Awesome. Variety is the spice of life some say. Needless to say, there shall be a few more up and coming reviews on various different menu items.
For the purposes of today’s visit, I have chosen a fairly standard ‘beef enuf’ which has what we would consider to be your ‘standard’ burger trimmings – beef, cheese, caramelized onion, bacon, egg lettuce, tomato, relish & mayo.
This thing is great. It’s the right size and it works in a team with the other ingredients to make your burger experience exactly what you left the house for – nothing short of amazing. Having had a few now, I am reasonably confident in saying that the mince appears to be a custom grind. That is to say – the opposite of anything mainstream you would ordinarily purchase from a meat wholesaler for example. It’s got a wonderful strong fresh flavour with minute but ideal traces of garlic, onion and herbs through it. You know it’s there but it doesn’t drown the other ingredients and vice versa.
Fillings & Roll
Choices of roll? You’ve got four. All the time. There’s my personal favourite – The White damper, sesame and a wholemeal. There’s also a gluten free item for $1.50 extra.
The rest of the fillings? Fresh and tasty. Simple and brilliant. As I was saying about the patty, this is a team effort so the flavours are there working together and nothing is overpowering.
Sauce? “Home Made Tomato Sauce” and Mayo. As I write this and no doubt as you are reading it, you’ll notice a theme emerging here. It just works. It’s got tomato flavour, it’s got tang and a tiny hint of spice. Spot on.
Again, winning. The chips are nothing short of perfect in my opinion. You can get a combo deal with chips and a drink for $4 small and $5 regular.
Now, I have to take moment out here and give a special mention to the dipping sauces. There are a number of different types on the menu which I won’t list, but I’ll say that I’ve tried the garlic aioli and the chilli lime aioli AND THEY WERE AMAZING. Seriously.
My burger set me back $11.90 + I went with the small combo so $15.90 in total. I will mention too that the ‘small’ chips really aren’t that small either. Given the quality of this offering, I’m saying the value is on the money… so to speak. You will leave very satisfied and in my opinion this is money well spent.
So you’ve read my thoughts above and now you’re seriously beginning to wonder whether or not this place has quietly shoved a green coloured bank note in each of our pockets for this raving review. You’d be wrong. You’d also be wrong in making any kind of decision to avoid coming here.
I will mention here though as I hadn’t covered it before – don’t bother coming if you’re in a hurry. Now, I understand all the burgers are hand made to order (the meat goes on the grill after you’ve handed over your hard-earned.) But in all honesty, if you’ve got somewhere to be or on a tight schedule, I can assure you that you will most definitely be late. Having said that, you’ll be late but very full, very satisfied and very happy.
Total – Nine Point Four.
