The Fish Shop, Potts Point

A few weeks ago, my tastebuds were treated to what I would rate as "the best cheeseburger in Sydney" to date. I don't consider myself as a burger connoisseur but rather, as someone who is passionate about burgers. I don't go for the monster-size burgers much. I prefer burgers with buns that handles well, balanced flavours, a tasty beef patty and ingredients with the right portions.

I found this said cheeseburger at Merivale's The Fish Shop located in Potts Point. After Chocolatesuze gave their cheeseburger her approval , we planned a lunch catch up.

Bloody Caesar

We had a Bloody Caesar ($16) to get the party started. It consisted of clamato juice which is clam and tomato fused juice. It had vodka to fire things up and also some hot chilli pepper kick that took this cocktail to a much higher level of happy drinking!
Dan's famous cheeseburger

In the end, it was all about their glorious Dan's famous cheeseburger ($17), named after its creator, Chef Dan Hong. It came with thick cut chips.  One of the things that Dan does best is putting his own twist on classic American dude food with quality ingredients. After my first bite, my mind was instantly blown away! This burger had a very flavoursome and juicy medium rare beef patty that was complimented by a sexy melted American cheese. It also had pickles, ketchup, mayo, crispy bacon and a caramelised onion that added a nice sweet finishing touch to the burger. Most importantly, it had a soft sweet bun that held all the ingredients very well.

I see myself coming back to this joint numerous times in the near future. There are also other seafood dishes that I definitely want to hit up next time. All-hail Dan's famous cheeseburger!
