Smashed Burger is the latest addition to the Sydney burger craze. Located in the idyllic Woolloomooloo Wharf area, literally across the road from beautiful water views. But Smashed Burger brings a twist. Not your typical burger, they’re all about the smashed meat!
Smashed Burger is a casual eatery and as such, has a relaxed vibe to the place. Decked out in a simplistic manner, it’s comfortable, just as a good burger joint should be.
Minimal seating allows you to dine in with one of their epic burgers, or you can opt to takeaway. In fact, the waterfront location is ideal for that sunny takeaway lunch.
The first burger we tried was the beef. Smashed beef brisket, beetroot, lettuce, tomato, bacon, swiss cheese, onion and smashed aioli mustard. Juicy! Full of meaty goodness, some good old Aussie beetroot for added flavour, and a ton of beer battered fries on the side. This is an epic burger!
To cut through some of the carbs and calories in the fries, we thought we’d order another round of fries! LOL. Special fries to be exact. Beer battered with your choice of smashed meat and special smashed house sauce. We naturally went with lamb because nothing is quite as good as pulled lamb. And this was no exception. A very generous portion of delicious moist lamb sitting atop a mountain of those beer battered fries, with a liberal amount of sauce over the top. Special fries is a must order!
Our second burger was the chicken smash, and our favourite for the day. And going by the number of customers we saw ordering this, it is definitely a crowd pleaser. Smashed chicken, lettuce, tomato, bacon, swiss cheese, mayo, and smashed avocado aioli. Oh that smashed avo. It really takes this chicken burger to the next level. Absolutely delicious and highly recommended!
To wash all this delicious food down, we decided to try one of their shakes. Our thickshake of choice was their best seller, the smashed fudge brownie. Sooooooo incredibly good and so addictive. Chocolate fudge brownie thickshake, topped with oreos, flake and maltesers. We really must insist that you order one of these crazy shakes! They’re so delicious!
Sydney’s burger craze is out of control – but we absolutely love it! When newcomers come to the party and bring a slight twist to the norm, all the better. We love variety and these guys have some fantastic smashed meat burgers that will have your taste buds singing. Do it!!!
