Non-stop endorsements of Mary's burgers have been uttered far and wide since their recent opening. And there’s several in our office who have placed the prize of The Best Burger in Sydney squarely in Mary’s court. Chef Luke Powell has perfected the art of the burger, serving up three tasty options: the Mary's classic burger with some greenery, add the 'trashcan bacon'; the Cheez classic cheeseburger; or the Shroom filled with garlicky grilled mushrooms and 'special sauce'. No matter which you choose, you're guaranteed to be completely satisfied.

The Fish Shop
There’s no denying it—The Fish Shop has perfected Sydney's tastiest fish burger. This crumbed fish specialty is topped with smoky bacon and chilli and is simply superb.

This small place near my work is worth trying - Crisp CBD (Pitt Street). My favourite, Crisp burger and Big Bang burger - you can choose rye or white buns for your burger.
