After some Thursday night shopping and a little Nespresso tasting at Westfield Sydney, MDS and I headed over to Chur Burger in Surry Hills.
I had heard good things about this place, a new Sydney foodie hotspot which has even been described as having Sydney’s best burgers (Good Food, SMH).
MDS and I walked in, past some people who were sitting outside.
We didn’t know about the set up or how the whole reservation thing worked so we just waited near the door until someone came over to us. We were told that we could get a table in 15 minutes, so we put our names down on the list and waited outside with the others.
We waited just 10 minutes before being shown to a high table with some stools around it. While we had to share our table with two other groups, the table was pretty wide so we didn’t get in anyone’s way.
Inside, Chur Burger has a very hip hop warehouse feel to it. There is loud music playing in the background (Kanye West at the time) and a large kitchen area on one side. You order at a small window on the right side of the room, and pay upon ordering.
It was a bit of a different set up to anywhere else I have been and as I am a fan of hip hop, RnB and rap, I enjoyed the music and loved the chilled out atmosphere.
Service was quite average and we didn’t have much interaction with the staff. However, the girl who put our names down for a table and greeted us was pretty friendly.
Our food came out quickly and with no fuss and our used plates and cups were soon cleared away.
MDS and I ordered a burger each and decided to share chips.
I ordered the Grilled Chicken, Hot Sauce Mayo and Minted Slaw burger ($10.00).
The burger was pretty large and although I was hungry when I started, I couldn’t finish the whole burger. I ended up leaving the bun and eating the filling!
The sauce was not hot at all but it had a nice spicy tang to it. The slaw was tasty and fresh and the chicken had a lovely charcoal taste, which I enjoy.
MDS ordered the Pulled Pork, Chur BBQ Sauce, Red Slaw and Fennel Mayo burger (also $10.00).
She enjoyed this colourful burger, but she too could not finish the whole thing.
For sides we shared the Chips with Chilli Salt ($5.00) and the Sweet Potato Fries with Garlic and Lime ($5.00).
The chips were crunchy and hot and the added kick of chilli was great!
Sweet potato fries are healthier than regular fries, and the sweetness of the thick cut chips was nice. I couldn’t really taste much of the garlic and lime though.
I definitely think these burgers are some of the best I have had. There is some great variety on offer here, the burgers don’t take long to cook, service is fuss-free and the atmosphere is great.
A very cool option for a late night dinner and there is also a dessert and milkshake menu!
Our burgers and fries came to $30.00 all up.
I would rate my experience (out of 10):
- Service- 6.5
- Food- 9
