Happy International Burger Day (Thursday 28 May). One of the only good things to come out of Covid was more burgers. Even those venues who usually wouldn’t sell them starting slinging patties as an excellent takeaway option. Here’s where to get your burger fix!

QT Canberra

Fares Bueller

The Fried Tawook burger isn’t your regular chicken burger. Think exotic Lebanese spiced chicken, bright pickled turnips and of course garlic aioli. The Kafta Cheeseburger will also turn heads; all the usual cheese burger staples like jack cheese, onion and pickles only this one has a spicy sauce over the carefully crafted wagyu kafta patty.

Young & Frisky

Returning back to the hospo world after Covid shut downs on Thursday 28 may (International Burger Day) celebrate two great things at once. You know a place that is famous for their fried chicken and whisky is going to hit the spot. The gastro pub in Gungahlin has a casual and energetic dining vibe with American-style burgers just the way we like it. Tuck into a succulent chicken, beef burger or steak sandwich, or a favourite for vegetarians is the southern fried tofu burger. The burgers are all served on a white butter bun or Turkish bread and are served with chippies coated with the flavourful Frisky shake.

Burger Craft

The fish burger is a must try and a complete work of art! We know it’s terribly hard to look past a classic beef of a fried chicken combo but these guys have truly shown the fish burger a lot of love. Must try!

Grease Monkey

It’s not a burger list without these folk. The old mechanics garage in Braddon is home to the kind of burgers that have you salivating at the name. The Greasy burger is always a hit with the classic cheeseburger combo and juicy pickles or the Nimbin with crumbed Portobello mushroom is another crowd favourite. GM has been slinging burgers from their truck in Woden and their new venue in Gungahlin! Hot tip: always order a side of greasy sauce to drown your chippies.

They have 3 options, a Pork Belly Bao with soy braised pork belly, herb salad, pickled cucumber and hoi sin. The Buttermilk Fried Chicken with peanut sauce and American cheese and Jackfruit with bulgogi sauce and vegan Asian slaw. The hardest part is deciding which one to get.

From Kingston Foreshore and in Capital Brewing Co Fyshwick, Brod is undoubtedly familiar to locals and home to some of Canberra’s most legendary burgers to jam your face into. There’s something about the soft chewy bun, the juicy fillings and the optimal amount of sauce that no one can get enough of. If you’re a chicken burg fan, try the Piri Piri or meat lovers, the Deluxe is everything. These guys do gourmet ingredients and big sized burgers well. Sit back with a lake view and a tinnie and you’re set. Also doing delivery within 8km of Kingston.
