Ketchup Canteen, Kings Park - Blacktown

Western Sydney’s burger options just keeps growing and we love it! From the team that has brought us the Holy Heffa food truck comes another delicious treat in the form of Ketchup Canteen.

Van, Nader and Joe has been in the burger game for 2 years with Holy Heffa and is still going strong. The team has decided to expand their domain in Sydney’s west with their cafe diner concept in the King’s Park industrial area. Ketchup canteen is more than just burgers. It’s a cafe in the sense that they serve espresso based drinks using Toby’s Estate Wolloomooloo blend. They also have burgers, fried chicken, sandwiches, salads, thickshakes and more.

I tried a flat white ($3.50) with their house blend from Toby’s Estate. The coffee had a full body with milk chocolate notes.

You can get most of their sides in regular or large size. The mac & cheese ($6 regular) was perfect! The macaroni was cooked perfectly with a gooey molten-like flavoursome cheese sauce. The same cheese sauce is used for their cheesy fries ($6 regular) along with paprika and chives.

They have fried chicken ($11) too and it’s insanely good! We went with the half size and kept it OG Southern-style without any hot sauce. The buttermilk coating was crispy with notes of cumin, coriander seeds and other wonderful spices. The meat was heaps juicy but not oily at all. It’s not a big deal but I would have preferred the chicken to be chopped into smaller portions rather than two huge 1/4 pieces.

Last but not least, I had to smash a burger and so I opted for the Heffa Homewrecka burger ($10). Y’all know I love my double patty burgs so I added extra patty ($4) and bacon ($3). This is basically their take on the classic cheeseburger which includes a juicy beef patty, sexy melted American cheese, pickles, onions and Heffa sauce in a soft buttery brioche bun. It’s a massive well-constructed flavoursome umami packed burger. I highly recommend this for those visiting Ketchup for the first time.

For now, they are only open on weekdays. But pretty soon they will also open at night and weekends. If you’re a Holy Heffa fan or just someone who loves burgers and fried chicken, you need to check them out when you’re in Blacktown or Kings Park!
