A few weeks ago the boss of start-up site Airtasker offered to pay $500 to someone who was willing to travel across Sydney and taste 10 burgers in 10 days to find Sydney’s best Hamburger. The results are in.
Catherine has sent EFTM a summary of the challenge with a full list of Sydney’s top 10 burgers!
The Airtasker Burger Run, took me to 10 burger venues in 10 days. I was asked numerous times during the course of the run whether it was difficult or if I was getting sick of burgers.
Difficult? Yes, only if you count having to fit my burger eating around a more-than-fulltime job difficult. But I did it.
Sick of burgers? Well, as my Facebook status points out today, “No more burgers. I’m done.” For about two weeks, maybe.
The main question on everybody’s lips, however, is did I find Sydney’s best burger? Well, without making any sweeping declarations, I think I found some great burgers in Sydney. The best? That’s always hard to say because as much as we objectify the task, a love of burgers is often viewed through meat griddled, mustard covered glasses. And as someone wise once said, “To each his own”.
Besides, 10 venues is hardly enough to find the best anything in a city as chock full of burger restaurants as Sydney.
What I can tell you is what was best out of the 10 venues which I was sent to. I didn’t do a scoring system, because knowing how anal I am, I would have agonised over a half a point here or there and where’s the fun in that? I did, however, stick to comparing apples for apples: Beef burger with cheese, chips and a soft drink. So, who came up tops? I decided to call out three winners. Well, two and an overall winner.
Most delicious burger goes to Rockpool Bar & Grill.
Best value meal goes to Moo Gourmet Burgers.
And the overall winner?
Charlie & Co.
Here are the rankings for all 10, with a snippet review and prices:
Now – who’s doing Melbourne, Brisbane, Adelaide and Perth?
