It sure has been a while since we’ve been to a burger joint… or at least that’s what the blog tells me!
We finally made our way to the popular suburban burger joint at 127 Days which is reflective of their location on 127 Days Road in the western suburbs of Croydon Park (around the corner from Viet Nam Asian Snack Bar). I’ve been warned that the burgers here were massive but we couldn’t fight our roaring and hungry bellies and ended up over ordering. >.<
Condiments and seasoning shelf
They sure had an impressive menu of burgers on offer as well as an ‘eats’ menu with some drool worthy sides like a variety of chips, cajun cheese fries, cheese arancini, spicy chicken wings and even salt and pepper squid! There are two burger combos on offer, the standard combo for $14 which consists of a $9/$10 burger with chips and a drink or the deluxe combo at $16 for a $13 burger, chips and a drink.
I was happy to forgo the combo and was content with just the burger, however that was not to be as the stranger wanted to try both style of chips – tater tots and hash tags, and so we ended up having two burger combos to share… haha.
Old fashioned and tater tots (standard combo)
I stuck with something simple, the old fashioned burger ($9.00) with Angus beef, cheese, lettuce, tomato, sauce and mayo, which came accompanied with golden nuggets of crispy tater tots. The Angus beef patty was thick, juicy and meaty, however I did find it a bit too thick and meaty which dominated the burger overall and had the other ingredients brushed to the side lines. Or maybe I just needed a bit more sauce to go with each meaty bite? I’m sure I’ll be returning here one day so I’ll have another taste then.
The Italian Job with #tags (standard combo)
As for the stranger, he was happy for me to pick the other burger as I was also eyeing The Italian Job from the menu. The combination of Angus beef, rocket, provolone, chilli, roasted capsicum and aioli defintely had my interest… and boy, was it delicious or what. The burger had so much flavour, and even though the beef patty was thick as it was on the old fashioned, it balanced well with its accompanied ingredients like the fresh peppery notes from the rocket leaves, spicy chilli and fragrant roasted capsicum pieces. Mmmm, yum! Oh, and those #tags were pretty good too. Crispy golden cross hatching shaped potato gems.
Other really interesting and salivating burger options on offer that caught my tastebuds attention was The Mushroom Melt with Angus beef, roasted mushrooms, Jack cheese, bacon, caramelised onion, rocket and truffle aioli ($13) and the Squealed with a Kiss: pulled pork, apple slaw, hot cheese and chipotle aioli.
I know 127 Days is quite popular with the locals and nearby businesses as we saw many lunch orders being packed and picked up whilst we were lunching there along with a constant line up at the counter, so my question to you is, have you been here? And what’s your go to burger at 127?
