It was the early 2010s. Maybe it’s nostalgia, but things were better. Hawthorn fans were less insufferable. Trump’s lunacy affected a far smaller proportion of the world. And Taio Cruz was topping the charts (OK, maybe the early 2010s weren’t perfect). One thing, however, that Australians clearly missed out on from earlier this decade was […]
Whoever said that legumes and seeds can’t be sultry has obviously never tasted hummus. At its best, when those chickpeas are accompanied by plenty of tahini (toasted ground hulled sesame seeds), it’s creamy and luscious. But to earn the name “Hummusutra”, we needed to go one better, and that’s where the spiced new season’s lamb […]
If you’re going to judge a book by its cover, pâté is never going to picked first in the “Pretty Food” Olympics. Nor will duxelles. There’s just not much vibrancy to them, visually speaking. But we implore you, at least for a month: toss aside those ideas of “food needs to be colourful” and give […]
Sometimes, it really is about the simple things. We get it, molecular gastronomy. That olive that looks like “soil” is pretty incredible, and no, it didn’t occur to us to pair it with freeze dried curd of goats that only eat wild grass in the Western Himalayas (oh, sorry, curd of “tahr”). We’re as guilty […]
Meat and three…Let’s be honest, the “three” was always the struggle. The punishment. The threat. “You better finish your vegetables or you won’t get dessert!” (note: you can skip straight to frozen custard, we won’t judge) Well, we’re making a controversial statement with July’s Burger of the Month, “Meat and Three”: the vegetables are (almost) […]
We’re told things come in threes, both for good…and not so good. The former brings us the Three Musketeers, Three Little Pigs, and three Godfather movies (ok, maybe that’s also in the not so good category); the latter has celebrities very worried when two famous people pass on in quick succession. June’s BOTM, the “Triple […]
Sometimes you can’t decide between a pizza and a burger. Life can be difficult. This month, we’re bringing back our solution to that pressing dilemma, the “Burgza”: it starts with a marinara sauce made with the best tomatoes around (San Marzano DOP, ftw), fresh basil, mozzarella, and one of our most beloved toppings to date, […]
It may officially be Autumn, but we’re going to “deny, deny, deny” with one last summery BOTM: the “Hallouminati”. Summery because there’s watermelon on this burger…yeah, that’s right, sweet, crisp, and refreshing watermelon. You’ll just have to trust us. But this isn’t a dessert burger (there is an elite beef patty, after all): it also features its namesake, freshly grilled halloumi and just picked leaves of mint. With plenty of hot weather predicted this month, this is indeed a choice for the enlightened.
It has a pretty stunning peach salsa, if we may say so ourselves, but let’s be honest – it’s just some really great peaches that are the star, complimented by jalapeños for a bit of heat, pickled red onion for a bit of tang, and coriander for a bit of herby freshness.
This salsa then works in tandem with a creamy Onkaparinga brie, and slightly bitter endive, both playing off the sweetness of the ripe stonefruit and the beefiness of our signature patty. It’s available all this summery month at Union St, Adelaide, La Trobe St, Melbourne, and soon to open Flinders Tavern.
