So why The Bangbang Cafe?

She says He was having a rough morning so we decided to stay close-ish to home and try a burg that He has been talking about for ages. The photos of the burgers here looked just like the kind of thing required to feed this monstrous hangover.

He says: After demolishing schnitzels and way too many beers the night before my spectacular love, She, decided to drive my sorry hung-over ass over to Bangbang in Surry Hills. Turned out to be a great call.

Tell us about the All Star Burger?

He says: Cheezus this was good! A terrific wagyu patty mingled with smoked cheddar, lettuce, tomato, added bacon and a mind blowingly good Bangbang sauce. My only complaint would be the bun had a touch of the ‘Sunday stales’ but that’s a minor quibble.  Seriously that sauce was truly banging (yeah I did it, soz)!

She saysThis was simple and delicious. Great tender meat with lots of sauce, the whole thing was really tasty.  held together well, the cheese was melted to perfection.  You should try these burgers, they are special.

So then, how did you find the Fried Chicken Burger?

She says: Wow. A very, very nice burger. The fried chicken was key, and there was just enough  of it. It was tender and moist and would have been awesome even by itself. Double cheese, crunchy coleslaw, lettuce and tomato topped with generous lashings of  saucy-mayo goodness. The filling worked perfectly with the crunchy chicken. Very solid work.

He says: Really fucking great hangover tonic this one as well with the stars being the buttermilk chicken and the Sriracha sauce coleslaw. The bun had the same issue but the once again the Bangbang sauce smashed it out of the park.

Now, what about the sides?

She says: The chips were perfectly suitable, nothing special but just right. Macca’s style with lots of salt. The milkshake was the only let down of this whole meal. I am not sure if it was on the menu. Because of his fairly average feels, He just ordered it (said like it was his dying wish) so perhaps the waitress just whipped it up to try and cheer him up. Anyway had a bit of the hot-chocolate-powder-mixed-with-milk vibe that my ma used to try and sneak past us as kid. No mum, milkshakes have lots and lots of ice cream and are made in a blender!

He says: Not much by way of the sides but the fries served with the burger (great value for money here) were on point and a force to be reckoned with when doused in aioli. The shake was more of an iced chocolate than a milkshake but the sugar hit still sated my post inebriation thirst.

She says: Like he says, it was almost the burger date that never happened. But then it did, and it was a heap of fun.

What did you order?

  • The Eazy-E Burger with Crack Bacon – $14
  • The Chooklyn Burger with cheese – $15
  • Maple Mayhem Chicken Wings – $8
  • Loaded Fries – $6

DSC01792

Tell us about the Eazy-E Burger?

He says:  This was great without being outstanding. Pretty close to an upmarket Hungry Jacks burger in taste. I’d prefer a softer bun and the patty a little more on the pink side but these are minor quibbles. The BA sauce raised the game tenfold and you’d be a total dick if you didn’t add crack bacon to this bad boy.

DSC01803

She saysPretty solid burger, not outstanding but if I lived close by this would definitely be one of my staples. The insides were great but I think the bun let it down. I wasn’t crazy about the bun on either of these burgers, it was perhaps a bit too ry?

DSC01798

So then, how did you find the Chooklyn Burger?

She says: That piece of chicken was huge, and cooked really well! This burger was easily my favourite, nice crisp salad, great warm cheese  and tonnes of sauce. Again, a solid burger that you would go back for.

DSC01809

He says:  A chicken schnitzel styled patty that did wonders when combined that BA sauce and sweet BBQ. Again a bit of a bun issue here but damn if it was freaking delicious.

DSC01788

Now, what about the sides?

She says: The chicken wings were great – sticky and sweet but with nice moist chicken inside. The fries were decadent and delicious however not for the faint hearted (they would be great friends with a hangover.)

DSC01800

He says: I was a massive fan of both of these. The loaded fries had the aforementioned bang on BA sauce (seriously you dunk anything in this and it would taste delicious) with Crack Bacon and I’m a fan of a sweet and spicy combo when it comes to wings these were right up my alley.
