We popped over next door to Gemmills for some drinks after our delicious burger at Burger Joint.
Well, we had initially wanted to have drinks only, but plans are always subject to changes 🙂
- The Duck Rillette ($10 nett) was like a paté, which reminded us a little of tuna mayo, but with a much more intense flavour. It went very well with the bread, and the crunchy pickles was refreshingly sour.
- The Quiche ($8) was pretty standard in our opinion, quite nice but without the wow factor.
- Hubby enjoyed his Flat White ($4), which was strong and acidic.
- Unfortunately, I felt that the Aurora’s Lemon & Ginger Tea ($4) was a bit weak, and I could barely taste any hint of lemon.
Iced water is available for free, and the service was friendly and pleasant. There was no free WiFi though.
We did enjoy just lounging around, enjoying the music and food. What a lovely way to end our mid-week!
Burger Joint is a newly opened (today is their 2nd day!) famous New York burger restaurant with only a back door on Gemmill Lane as the entrance (similar to its unshowy entrance in New York Le Parker Meridien Hotel).
Upon entering, we were welcomed into a cosy area with comfy looking sofa benches. With colourful menu written on cardboard and customers’ scribblings all over the walls, this certainly looked like a fun place to be in!
The steps are clear: decide on the type of burger, how do you want it cook, and what do you want on it, and rattle off your order at the counter. Pay up, memorise your number, and wait for them to shout your number to get your yummy burgers!
We had a Cheeseburger cooked medium rare with all in, except ketchup ($13.80 + GST).
Our verdict? The beef patty was awesome!!! We loved the texture and the pinkish meat. It was also a very non-greasy burger, so it was not as sinful…
There was a bar counter, but we did not try any drinks. We did however, enjoyed the free WiFi (just ask the staff for the password), and left our scribblings on the wall… May the 4th be with You 🙂
