"Why another burger post Raff?!" You may ask. Why not?! Burgers are awesome and one of the best comfort-giving foods around! I'm all about sharing the love about my new burger hunts. Thanks to my fellow food lover SWEETANDYUMMIE and her Instagram post, we've discovered a new face in the burger scene that goes by the name of Mister Gee Burger Truck.
|It's Mister Gee yo!|
A food truck that specialises in burgers such as Mister Gee is one of the best things to hit the streets of the Inner West. You'll find them parked, flippin' burgers and pumpin' hip hop jams at Burwood Deluxe Car Wash on Wednesday to Saturday nights. I really like the minimal menu that contains a burger of the week, two types of French fries, and a milkshake. I visited them on two separate nights to sample what Mister Gee has to offer:
I went with G and Chocolatesuze on my first visit. The burger of the week was the Fat Boy burger ($10). It had beef patty, melted jack cheese, oak leaf lettuce, pickled cabbage, secret sauce and BACON JAM yo! All encased in a soft light brioche bun. The patty was cooked well-done but was still juicy and flavoursome. The flavours were well-balanced whilst the lettuce and pickled cabbage added texture and sour flavours. The caramelised sweet and smoky flavours of the bacon was the rockin' part of the burger. If it was a concert, my tastebuds would have gotten up on stage and did a stage dive. My palate was that pumped!
The most recent burger of the week that I've tried was the cheese boogie ($10). I was so happy when Mister Gee's cheeseburger was back on the menu! It had 170 grams of beef patty, American cheese, caramelised onions, dill pickles and Mister Gee's secret sauce. It looked sexy and tasted badass! There was a lot of goodness going on from the super melted cheese to the sweet caramelised onions. Then there were the sour, creamy and tangy flavours from the pickles and secret sauce. I specially loved the caramelised crust created from smashing the beef patty which I give them props for. Smashed style patties done right are hard to find in Sydney. The light brioche soft sweet brioche bun held the whole burger well. It was no doubt a solid cheeseburger!
There are also two types of fries available: Standard fries ($4) or dirty fries ($5). The standard fries are shoestring French fries flavoured with a smoky salt blend. The dirty fries were topped with cheese, salsa and a secret sauce.
They also have softdrinks and baklava shake ($6) available. The best part of the baklava shake is when you get towards the bottom and hit the pieces of baklava.
I'm so glad there are more legit burgers on offer around the West/Inner West part of Sydney. Follow Mister Gee Burger Truck on Instagram and like them on Facebook to see the latest upcoming burgers of the week to hit the streets of Burwood (now in Haberfield).
