Burger Shurger

By  |  0 Comments

There has been a glaring omission in the burger world. For all the ethnic overlaps and culinary appropriation, the Indian styled burger hasn’t been popularised. And, if you think about it, Indian cuisine lends itself nicely to the burger world. The powerful flavours, the no-nonsense punch, the creamy sauces, the homeland cheeses…it’s a ready-made genre, primed to be lifted and remixed. Whether Burger Shurger in Elsternwick is the first Indian burger restaurant is debatable, but since opening, they’ve certainly illuminated a void in the market, and people are flocking.

The Mighty Butter Chicken is their hero dish, with all the Indian hallmarks and new age aesthetics. There’s the charcoal and sesame bun that houses crispy deep fried chicken sitting on the bed of lettuce, yoghurt raita, pickled onions, mint and coriander chutney and finally drenched with a smoky house-made authentic Butter Chicken Sauce. It’s a hand-sized trip to India!
