Burger Project – Sydney


I have always been a big fan of Neil Perry’s Rockpool burger so when I first heard of Burger Project I knew it was something I defiantly wanted to check out. I like the whole concept of the shop just simple burgers made with great ingredients served in a casual refined fast food atmosphere.

I really like the burger here & I have all ready been back a few times since I first had it and I will no doubt be back again.

Cheese & Bacon $9.50 – Grass fed beef , bacon , cheese, pickles, tomato , lettuce and secret sauce.  The meat in the patty is moist and full of flavor cooked slightly rare with some seasoning topped off with cheese & bacon. The salad is fresh and crisp. The only let down I would say is the bun not that it is bad just not up to par with the rest of the burger.

The Korean Burger $8.90-  how to make a Korean burger take a regular on and put Kim chi on it  interesting combination but it did work well combining two things that don’t normally go together.

Wings large $9.00-  the wings come with a hot sauce that I got it separate on the side lucky because when I tried it it was way to hot for me. The wings are OK on there own with a salt & pepper coating but to get the full flavor you need the sauce. Like there chips they are deep fried but not oily.

Fast Food

Grill’d – Crows Nest


Grill’d is a burger place, it sits somewhere in between fast food and a restaurant. Order your food at the counter and the burgers are brought out to you on a plate with cutlery, no paper bags/wrap here. Grill’d at Crows Nest is licensed (not sure about the other ones) so you can get a beer with your burger.

I have eaten here many times and tried many different burgers from the menu. They are always very good! All the ingredients are fresh, the buns actually add to the taste not just something to hold the contents, veggies crisp and flavoursome and the meat moist and tasty. There is a wide range of burgers beef, chicken and lamb with some vegetarian options ,  various fillings all are about $10.

I usually don’t eat chips but at Grill’d i do thicker style with a bit of salt and herb mix, crunchy and light on the oil. You get with the chips a herb mayo , tomato relish or sweet chili mayo dip. If you check in on foursquare you get a free mini chips !

If you haven’t tried a Grill’d burger give them a try , you won’t be disappointed.



Mini chips and sauce – free with foursquare check in !

Rockpool Bar & Grill


It’s hard not to be impressed when you walk into Rock Pool Bar & Grill, big marble columns rise up to the high ceiling an open kitchen runs down the side of the space the whole space seems large because of the ceiling height.  Its is the restaurant dining area off to the side is an equally impressive bar,  It’s a bar but there is full restaurant table service however they do not take bookings for the bar .

The menu comprises of a selection of tasting style plates a few mains and sides.  One of the mains is newly crowned winner of “burger wars” best burger in Sydney – David Blackmore’s Wagyu Hamburger. A worthy winner in my opinion, every element of the burger is perfect and would be great on their own put them all together and you have a winner.  The Wagyu is beautiful, very tasty it just melts in your mouth. Vegies are fresh and add another layer of flavour, top it off with some cheese and burger bun and there you have it.

Other items on the menu Charcoal Roast King Prawn. It’s a large prawn split in half, marinated and char grilled. The marinade is really flavoursome; you can taste the flavour that comes from the char grilling too which adds another layer to the taste.  It’s a very good dish but for $10 you get one prawn only on the plate with a slice of lemon which seems a bit steep to me. The Lamb ribs nice, very tender meat that just falls of the bone. I was impressed by the salad fresh and crispy with a light dressing, simple but a perfect combination that works great together.

I like eating at the Rock Pool Bar and Grill whether it be at the bar or in the restaurant the food is always excellent and the building is very interesting,   great space for a restaurant.  Few negatives I find the staff can be a bit pretentious sometimes and it’s a bit pricey but overall it’s a very good place for a feed.

Charcoal Roast King Prawn, Split and Marinated – $10

Fried Spiced Lamb Ribs with Lime and Chilli Salsa $12
