Sydney bites: Burger Project, Hurricane’s Grill and Chanoma Cafe

Some of the other deliciousness that mama bear and I feasted on in Sydney late last year. Maybe some of these places might come in handy on your itinerary in the coming months if you’re travelling to Sydney? 🙂

If you’ve had the chance to treat your tastebuds to Shake Shack and love that place… then I’d say that you’ll really like Neil Perry’s new venture – The Burger Project. The stranger has always raved on about how amazingly delicious the wagyu burger is at Neil Perry’s Rockpool Bar & Grill and that was one of the places that mama bear and I were planning to go… That is until I found out that The Burger Project had just opened its doors and with the same brains behind that famous burger, but at half the price, I knew where we were going to get our burger fix. Simple and quality ingredients in a classic style burger bun, it totally hit the spot. Those crispy golden batons of potato goodness didn’t last long between the pair of us either. Heh!

Hurricane’s Grill

Herb bread; $4.50

Hurricane’s Grill has always been a favourite of the stranger and mine, and although we didn’t make our way there during our last visit to Sydney, I knew I had to take mama bear there as well as getting my ribs fix!

Pork ribs – full rack; $49.50

We ordered a serving of fresh herb bread which is baked daily on the premises and slathered in herb butter to start. Too bad it wasn’t complimentary as it used to be(!).. haha. And of course, the one item that must be ordered from the menu, their famous and popular ribs which is basted and grilled until tender with a serving of sweet potato chips. Mama bear loved it… she actually loved the sweet potato fries more so than the rack of ribs! We just barely finished our stash of food before we rolled out and grabbed an ice cream for the walk back to our hotel.

The closest thing we’ve got to those fries in Adelaide is at Burgastronomy, so I took her there a few weeks back. The verdict? She said it was good, although a bit too salty and the cut of the chips themselves were thinner than the favoured thick cut of Hurricanes, but overall – still good.

Chanoma Cafe

And so were were back at Chanoma Cafe again!! Haha…

Iced black sesame; $5.50

Speckled iced black sesame drink to cool down after all the walking we had done. So refreshing with a subtle hint of black sesame flavour, however, after having a bite of the matcha shiratam parfair dessert and going back to the beverage… it was quite bland in comparison! Haha… the trick was to stick with one… or have this one first before upgrading to the sweet green tea dessert. 😛
