Burger Project, Sydney

There’s been a lot of hype about this burger joint Burger Project, I was also invited to opening night, unfortunately I was in Hong Kong and wasn’t going to fly down for it! I did manage to eat here on my last visit, my brother F, has been a couple of times and was raving about it! Now, I have had heard mix reviews about this place, so didn’t really have high expectations, especially since I have eaten Neil Perry’s burger at Rockpool Bar and Grill.

Burger Project is the new project by Neil Berry, Trish Richards and David Doyle – the people behind the Rockpool Group. Open for lunch and dinner, Burger Project can be found in World Square, next to Din Tai Fung – the restaurant was bigger than expected. We arrived on Sunday at 1.30pm and the place was buzzing, but thankfully we found a seat outside. There’s no table service, you order at the counter, get a device that buzzes and when once your order is ready, the device will buzz and you pick up your food at the counter.

My brother F insisted that we order the spicy pork belly (AUD9.90) – crispy free range pork belly, salted chilli, pickles, pickled slaw and lettuce and WOW! It did not disappoint. Generous pieces of pork belly and crackle, the pickled slaw was a wonderful complement. The bun was surprisingly not bad. We really enjoyed this.

I wanted to try the burger in a bowl, same price with no buns but extra lettuce. I opt for the spicy pork belly and it did not disappoint. the salted chili and slaw was seriously good!

F also ordered the double (AUD12.90) – 2x grass fed beef, cheese, onion, pickles, tomato, lettuce and secret sauce. (not the best picture below) – it was better than I had anticipated (considering i had very low expectations!), the beef was tender, and who can say no to cheese and pickles in a burger? the bun was better than I anticipated but definitely not the best.

We also ordered the a crispy hot wing (AUD3.50 each) for Dragon, it wasn’t the best chicken wing i’ve had but Dragon seemed to have enjoyed it. We also had the house made chips thrice cooked (AUD4.90) – again not the best I thought, it was cooked to a crisp! Double cooked probably would have sufficed!

Overall I really enjoyed the spicy pork belly, but the beef burger itself I thought was ok. seriously, for me, nothing beats Dan Hong’s burger – that is still my favourite burger ever! We waited 30 minutes for our food, for a hungry child that’s a very long time. Would i go back again? maybe for the spicy pork belly, I know my parents have!

    I find the beef patties to be inconsistent. Maybe it was the first wk of trading during those days that I went. Pork belly one if definitely the best. Chips were amazing on my second visit.
