Chef's Kitchen Burger Truck, Sydney

A name with a strong force and presence in Sydney's burger game is back! I'm talking about Charles "The Madman" Curnow and his brand Chef's Kitchen. After a short break since closing his St Leonards shop, one of Sydney's finest is back in the form of a food truck.

I remember my first Chef's Kitchen experience. It was love at first bite when I had the Meaty Ménage. His burgers are popular amongst burger lovers in Sydney and I can understand why. If you've had his burgers before, you would have noticed the high quality beef patties he uses. He doesn't even go overboard to impress. His well-constructed burgers and quality ingredients speak for themselves. I was lucky to be one of the people invited to the burger truck's launch. Here's a preview of what to expect from the Madman:

First off, his loaded fries were insane! I've had his beer battered chips before and I can say that they were one of the best hot chips I've had in my life! Perfectly crisped on the outside, fluffy inside and well seasoned. This pork loaded fries was topped with super smoky tender pulled pork, liquid cheese and bbq sauce. All you spuds lovers out there will go crazy over this!

The Cali burger is his ode to In-n-Out's animal style Cheeseburger. The burger comes with Charles' signature juicy beef patty, lettuce, tomato, cheese, a thousand island like sauce and diced caramelised onions. This burger is 3 times bigger and better than the burger it drew its inspiration from. I also like that Charles puts his lettuce on the heel, which stops the juices from making the bottom part of the bun from getting soggy.

The Meaty (also known as the Meaty Ménage) burger is a personal favourite of mine. It's up there in my current top 3 best burgers in Sydney. As the name suggest it's a burg that houses a meat fest: A super juicy well seasoned beef patty, crispy bacon, 14 hour smoked beef brisket, melted cheese and a special sauce in St Malo Bakery's lightly toasted soft milk bun. This burger bursts with smoky aroma and flavour. I love the loose coarsely minced texture the beef patty has. This massive two-hand burger is so insane in the membrane!

There's no set locations or times for the truck yet so make sure to follow Chef's Kitchen on Facebook and/or Instagram for updates!

Ramen Raff was invited by Chef's Kitchen as a guest.
