Burgers are good. Secret burgers only available to those with connections are better.
We’ve teamed up with Brisbane burger fiend, and all round king of the food-porn Instagram game in Brisbane, Foodie Adam, to bring you this list of the most epic off-the-menu burgers in town.
Welcome to the club.
Once a regular menu item, the good people of Brisbane loved this burger so much they were devastated to see it go (and those who didn’t get a chance to try it complained a lot) so Chur decided to secretly give the people what they wanted, and what they wanted was a fried chicken burger with hot sauce gravy and maple bacon, wedged between waffle buns [pictured above].
An off-the-menu burger special from day one, Red Hook’s infamous secret burger is based off most loved burger of The King himself, so you know it’s going to be a real artery clogger: peanut butter, deep fried pickles, beef pattie, melted cheese and Red Hook sauce. What a way to die.
The Flying Cock
When the chef at the Flying Cock wanted to do something creative with the new (and already popular) sweet potato on their menu, this off-the-menu burger was born. One for the vegos, but tasty enough to impress the staunchest carnivore, this soft bun comes stuffed with a sweet potato patty, iceberg lettuce, jalapeno salsa, mayo and vegan jerky. The jerky is a pretty neat addition.
West End, Carina & Bridgeman Downs
What was once an old time favourite burger special that folks wouldn't stop requesting—think brisket, ranch, and fries, with ketchup, mustard—has been made available to those in the know. A group which now includes you.
This crazy-good, crazy-bad-for-you off-the-menu burger started off its life as a cure for a staff member’s hunger one night, before morphing into a food challenge handed down to all new staff. It’s since become a burger that can be requested by those in the know. It comes laden with double beef, double cheese, bacon, chicken breast, pickles, mustard, mayo, and tomato jam.
Miss Kay's off-the-menu burg’ is basically everything on their menu, including sides, squished between two buns. It goes a little something like this: bun top, BBQ sauce, pickles, lettuce, tomatoes, fried chicken, mac and cheese, pork, bacon, fries, cheese, beef patty, mayo, bun bottom. A real Brisbane burger challenge if ever there was one.
