“You look familiar – you look like a blogger!”
Ahhh, our cover is blown.
Hardly surprising, given my anonymous moustache and the fact this likely to be our third post on this Kingsville institution.
FWIW, I doubt very much that our splendid burger meals are in any way compromised, good or bad, by the ‘Coat’s knowledge that Consider The Sauce is sitting in the back garden.
This is an impromptu visit – we like that.
There’s Greek salad makings in the fridge at home, but we’ve hit the road … lured by the restaurant Facebook reminder that this is $12 burger night.
On a pleasantly muggy, hazy summer’s night, the back garden is a wonderful place to await our dinners.
We spy a young mum tucking in to a parmagiana as her partner’s steak sits unmolested.
He’s walking their toddler.
He returns; they swap roles.
Been there, done that … many, many times!
They may have been purchased at special burger-night discount price, but it’s interesting to note that our whole meal deals end in dollar terms where a food truck stand-alone burger begins.
And here we’ve got real cutlery and crockery, and a lovely setting in which to enjoy.
The chips are deeply tanned and very good. And there’s a good-sized serve of them on both our plates.
Between standard but good buns are some greenery, tomato, beetroot, bacon and tomato relish.
The meat looks less patty and more big, fat meatball.
But they squash down well to serve our burger purposes well.
They taste magnificent – beautifully seasoned and a little bit peppery.
Bennie, happily smiling, raves about our burgers all the way home.
