[invite] Bianca: Despite my pancake tangent, burgers are still very much at the forefront. And so the better half and I found ourselves at Burger Patch in Chatswood. It’s a short walk from Chatswood train station and smack bam in the middle of Chatswood business district.
I usually steer clear of all dairy-based beverages when I’m out ‘foodsploring’ it really just takes up space that should be dedicated solely to food. But who could go past a Strawberry Cheesecake Milkshake?
So we were kind of ambitious but in order to suss out the best of the best we took one for the time. Small Sweet Potato Fries $5.50 were crispy and fluffy. I definitely found myself gravitating to these over the regular fries.
I really enjoyed the amount of seasoning on the Small Hot Chips $3.50 but they could have done with just a fraction more cooking, as they weren’t as crunchy as I typically like mine.
Typically for me, the simple cheeseburger is the best indicator of quality. The Good American + Bacon $11.80. Had the foundations for a great burger, loved the ratio of double cheese, raw onion, crispy bacon, pickles and sauce. The beef patty was cooked well but not very tender to bite, as it was a fairly compacted patty.
I later jazzed it up with some Onion Rings, do I need a reason?
I can appreciate a good veggie burger and the Veggie Patch -w/ a grilled field mushroom, halloumi, beer battered onion rings, rocket, tomato, onion and herb mayo $13.50 had the flavour but was a little awkward to eat. I love a juicy burger but I feel the mushroom may benefit from being crumbed and lightly fried (though I guess it’s a veggie / healthier option for a reason). And anything with halloumi is a winner in my books.
The P.F.C $14.50 is a must order! Bang for your buck with a mega crispy fried chicken breast, perfectly seasoned and juicy. Jules and I both loved the tomato/onion salsa combo, adding a great fresh element to the burg.
Smokey Chicken Wings $10.50 were incredibly juicy and easily pulling away from the bone. Paired with the blue cheese sauce, this was a great little starter.
