So why The Bangbang Cafe?
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.
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.
What did you order?
Tell us about the All Star Burger?
- The All Star Burger with Bacon - $17
- The Fried Chicken Burger - $13.90
- Chocolate Milkshake- $5
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)!
This 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?
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.
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?
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!
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.
