So why Fritzenburger?
A Brisbane jaunt in honour of my darling Mum’s 60th
birthday brought us here the day after the party (and all the party drinks). Am a big fan of the Harajuku Gyoza restaurants and this is the same team’s take on burger goodness.
This was our saviour on an extremely hot day in Brissy. The lay out here is cool, front bar (with air-con) leads out to an open back area which, while too hot to eat in when we went, looks like a great place for a group of people and a bunch of burgs/beers.
What did you order?
Tell us about the Fritzen Burger?
- The Fritzen Burger with Maple Syrup Candied Bacon c$13
- The Chicken Burger - $12
- The Loaded Frites - $10
Great Burger. The patty melted in your mouth and had the perfect partner in the sensational Fritzensauce. The addition of the Maple Syrup Candied bacon should be made mandatory. The bun was a little on the dry side but it would take a whole lot more than that to bring the quality down on this little guy.
You could tell by looking at this cutie it was going to be good. I didn't mind the bun and I liked how soft it was and how much it compressed when you bit in. The star of this really was that candied bacon - love that salty sweet!
So then, how did you find the Chicken Burger?
The chicken looks pretty thick but it wasn't too much. Nice crispy lettuce, fresh tomato, spicy sauce and a good hunk of american cheese meant this was a solid burger choice. Juicy chicken thighs with spicy mayo are a perfect pair. Would eat again.
Top stuff once more. I’d normally prefer my fried chicken fillet to be of the breast variety but the thighs got it done here and made me look like a fool. The spicy mayo lifted everything up another notch as well.
Now, what about the sides?
These were as good as they sounded on the page: French fries loaded with cheese sauce, candied bacon, green onions, Fritzensauce and Twisties salt. YES, TWISTIES SALT!
