Soul Burger (All over Australia!!)
Many of us are Vegetarian/Vegan now, so you’d think there would be more plant-based burgers in Australia. No fear though! Because Soul Burger is here to the rescue with the ENTIRE menu being completely vegan. Which is great for people who have dietary requirements too! Which is why this is a contender for this unique collection of burgers, because how many burger joints do you know that are completely vegan?
Balwyn Canteen (VIC)
A casual lil hole in the wall… More like the Tardis with this amazingly LARGE menu. There are so many unique and classic options to choose from. They make INSANE combos like the Try Or Diet burger which consists of a donut bun, smashed beef patty, cheese, maple bacon, peanut butter & jam. Come here on your next cheat day, or just whenever you don’t feel like being healthy.
Gang Gang (SA)
Not to be confused with the adorable Cockatoo by the same name, because that’s Australia for you. This amazing shop fuses East Asian flavours into burgers, so that you can really experience new flavours. Just the names of the burgers themselves are pure gold; Cardi B, Spice Girl, Kiki, Hot Kim - how good! Try out the Spice Girl burger which is an Asian twist on the regular cheese burger with a soy garlic marinated beef patty, gang gang house slaw, pickled ginger and wasabi. That sounds like a fun AF time to us.
This little pop-up produces food that is reliant upon our land. A truly unique experience, especially because they aren’t available year round and you have to buy tickets to experience these flavours. Some of the ingredients they usually use are boab tuber (an Aussie plant), catfish, water lily, green tree ant, native stingless bees and bush bananas. That’s quite the twist on a normal burger. Fervor has partnerships with local communities, Traditional Owners and various businesses to ensure that they can best reflect the truest aspects of Australia in their burgers, and the rest of their menu.
