We, the meat eaters of Brisbane, have a serious problem: we’re going through a burger binge. A big one. What we thought was just a passing fad—a flash in the pan on the culinary stage—has overrun this town. Yes, American fast food has won over our greedy little hearts (and our arteries), and Brisbane’s burger scene is booming.
So while it’s no surprise to hear of another new American-style eatery opening in Brisbane (the more the merrier), we’re pretty damn excited about this one.
Miss Kay’s has officially swung open its doors in the CBD, but gee, did it cause some chaos in the build up. For the past few weeks, Miss Kay’s has been masquerading as a humble pop-up burger joint, and Brisbane has been going nuts for it, with queues around the block, burgers selling out on their opening day, and what felt like practically the entire Brisbane population descending unto the CBD to get their hands on a burger—it was chaos.
Open for lunch and dinner, Miss Kay’s is also serving up classic cocktails in jars and jugs no less (the Spiced Maple Bacon Sour, complete with a maple bacon garnish is a must-try!), with pumping beats and live music on weekends, making Miss Kay’s more than just a fast-food outlet; it’s the spot for post-work drinks, a casual catch up, a big night out… you get the picture. But it’s the burgers themselves that will keep this place bustling—they’re the real deal.
With plenty of classic burgers on the menu (all made from 300 day grain fed Angus beef, FYI), plus soon-to-be-faves like the ‘Ludakrisp’ fried chicken burger, and the ‘MK Special’ cheeseburger pattie stuffed with maple bacon and onion rings (OMG!), Miss Kay’s is gunning for the title of Brisbane’s best burgers. Also on the menu, you’ll find wings, fries, onion rings (made to order—natch) and for the sweet-toothed, Miss Kay’s ice cream sandwich (it involves cookies and Nutella—need we say more?).
Brisbane’s burger fans are in for treat at Miss Kay’s... You’re waistline may not thank you, but we think it’s worth it.
