The 10 best burgers in North Brisbane
Us Queenslanders know a good burger when we see one, and with the opening of Westfield Chermside’s new outdoor dining area, we’ve got a burger quest of momentous proportions ahead of us. Here are our picks of the best burgers in Brisbane's northside.
Beyond Burgers s at Grill’d
Introducing Grill'd's Beyond Burgers, a meat tasting, plant-based alternative for practising carnivores who need a day off. Grill'd sought out the experts at Beyond Meat to help them on their search for a perfectly meaty, plant-based pattie. The result is a four-strong line-up of their best loved burgers, made with a Beyond Meat pattie of pea protein and beetroot, free from soy, gluten and GMOs.
The Crispy Chicken at Betty’s Burgers
The Crispy Chicken at Betty’s Burgers is everything you’d hope an American-style burger would be. With crispy Southern fried chicken, lettuce, tomato and Betty’s elusive special sauce on a sweet brioche bun, this burger is simple but perfect. Wash it down with a chocolate thick shake and you’ll be one happy chappy.
The Big Boy Burger at Tapworks Bar & Grill
Tapworks Bar & Grill are bringing some seriously mean bar food to accompany their 30 taps of craft beer. Included in their impressive new menu is the big boy burger, which, as its name suggests, is really quite big. It features wagyu beef, chilli con carne, cheddar, salad, pickles and onion rings – we’ve never seen anything like it before.
The Sliders at Beach House Bar & Grill
The sliders at Beach House Bar & Grill give you the best of everything, and are perfect for the individual who can’t make up their mind. Opt for these brioche mini-burgers and you’ll get a pulled pork & coleslaw slider, one with lamb & tzatziki and another with beef & barbecue sauce. Perfect as a meal for one or a share plate between friends.
The Buffalo Chicken at The Sporting Globe
For something a little different, grab the buffalo chicken burger at The Sporting Globe. This burger is served on one of the charcoal brioche buns you’ve probably seen take over your Instagram feed, and comes with some classic American burger fillings. Crispy chicken tossed in buffalo sauce, coleslaw, pickles, onion rings and ranch dressing make this burger a winner.
The Big Boppa at Burger Urge
The Big Boppa from Burger Urge is a hearty beef burger, full of all kinds of mouth-watering goodness. This one features some Queensland favourites like pineapple, beetroot and free-range egg as well as your usual burger fare. It most definitely packs a punch and requires one very hungry soldier to finish.
The Chick’n’Hummus Burger at Nando’s
The Chick’n’Hummus burger encompasses everything we love about Nando’s – perfectly grilled chicken with authentic accompaniments. This burger is filled with tabouli and quinoa salad, red peppers, creamy hummus and grilled chicken breast on a soft Portuguese roll.
The Soft Shell Crab at Motto Motto
Although not technically a burger, the soft shell crab roll at Motto Motto is still well-deserving of a mention. With crispy green salad, onion, tomato, pickled cucumber, sweet chili and shisho mayo, this one is a lighter alternative to a meaty burger. If you’re feeling particularly adventurous, you can add fries with seaweed salt to your meal – a Japanese twist that’s a specialty for Motto Motto.
The Classic Cheeseburger at McDonald’s
Could a burger list really be written without McDonald’s? We think not. For a no-fuss burger reminiscent of euphoric childhood trips to Maccas, you can’t go past their classic cheeseburger.
The Chicken Schnitzel Burger at The Bavarian
As the younger brother of Bavarian Bier Café, The Bavarian brings to Chermside a wealth of knowledge about Bavarian classics like schnitzel. So, you can be confident that you’re getting the best of the best with their schnitzel, pickled cucumber, jalapeno and sesame aioli burger.
