I first read about this burger joint in the Sydney MX and at the same moment, a friend of mine had cut out and saved the article to tell me all about it. So on a gorgeous warm Sunday morning, we decided to follow through with this burger promise.
Mad Cow mooshake
The restaurant is nicely located across the Bondi beach, so the view, weather and vibe was perfect. We begin with the mooshakes – choosing a Mad Cow which has crushed oreos, vanilla & chocolate syrup, ice-cream blended with milk. And it was a wonderfully made milkshake – perfectly proportioned ingredients so it was not too sweet yet not too bland.
Wagyu beef burger
I choose the Wagyu beef burger, a Wagyu beef patty with mixed leaves, tomato relish, roasted roma tomatoes and mayonnaise. The meat patty is well cooked and the quality and generosity of fillings is impressive – but the burger size and pool of juices definitely made it a challenge to eat like a lady. My accompanying foodies chose the typical Cheeseburger, Beef Burger and last but not least the, “heart-stopping” Moo Burger – containing a beef patty, bacon, pineapple, tomatoes, beetroot, tomato relish, mayonnaise topped with a sunnyside-up egg.
I took one greasy bite and the beef patty wasn’t as impressive as the Wagyu, it was definitely drier and less flavoursome. We also share a side dish of chips, and I grinned from ear to ear. Finally! Chunky home-style potato chips – less batter and oil and soft melting potato inside.
Location, quality fillings and a cute name has convinced me to come back to taste their non-beefy burgers.
