Chur Burger Finally Hits Brisbane
Caroline Wild | On 20, Sep 2014
The wait is finally over; foodies can breath a sigh of relief as Sydneyâ€™s favourite burger joint, Chur Burger, has made its way to Brisbane.
Pretty much just another word for awesome, â€˜churâ€™ describes the food and the atmosphere at the Constance St. store in Fortitude Valley. For those familiar with the original Sydney joint, and all its amazingness, Brisbane has done well to match its Southern counterpart.
Unlike some of the other burger places currently in Bris, Chur Burger has great variety in their menu items, and you are guaranteed to leave with a full and happy belly.
With $10 burgers ranging from beef, chicken, pulled pork, pork belly, lamb, fish and vegie everyone will be happy. The beef and pulled pork are top of the list for us, and their bun-meat-sauce ratio canâ€™t be faulted.
For those not as hungry, they have a good snack list including hoisin beef tacos, chicken wings, prawn toast fingers and San Choi Bao. Great flavours and they go nicely as a snack on their own, or as a share plate to accompany your burger. Sweet potato chips and chilli salted fries are also on the menu, the sweet potato chips were crispy and had a great lime and garlic salt, while the chilli fries fell a bit flat due to their lack of crunch and freshness.
If you are a planning an early morning visit between 7-11am you can experience their breakfast menu including savoury French toast, or the breakfast chur burger.
Wondering what youâ€™re going to wash this all down with? The house-made sodas in raspberry, pomegranate or pineapple are very refreshing, or you can try their milkshakes for those wanting something more creamy, but they will set you back $8. The shakes are a good size however, and they have salted caramel- I REPEAT, THEY HAVE SALTED CARAMEL!
The whole place has a nice edgy feel to it, and the full bar makes it a great place to stop by anytime of day. As it is a new hotspot however, best to avoid the lunchtime rush as service can run a little slow, and there is nothing worse than being surrounded by burgers and staring down the waiters waiting for yours. The only other downside is that there is a 1% surcharge for eftpos, which comes to about 20 cents for the average lunch order. Not highway robbery, but just something to note.
All thatâ€™s left to say is GO, GO NOW! Your stomach will thank you for it.
