Jervois Road is now home to yet another opening so good you’ll be racing down to give it a try.
Burger Lab has arrived and is serving up some of the most epic eats in town. Just on the main road, inside, you’ll find a chill fit-out, plenty of seating and a tonne of good-vibes. It’s perfect for your work lunch and weekend brunch plans. Brought to us by genius duo Jan Shen and Chef Lee, Burger Lab experiments merging good old Kiwi and oriental flavourings to offer up one mouth-watering menu.
Sometimes, you just need a good hearty burger. Lucky for us, the Burger Lab team have got you covered. Our top pick would be the mammoth-sized beef burger, which features all the good stuff including a New Zealand grass-fed beef patty, aged cheddar, pickles, lettuce, tomato, crispy streaky bacon, caramelised onion, a killer smoked BBQ sauce, oozing aioli all on a brioche-style bun toasted to perfection.
Another winner you definitely don’t want to miss is their home-made steam bao burgers. The front of house Dan’s top pick is the pork burger. Featuring drool-worthy pork belly, slow-cooked with Chinese spiced soy, Asian peanut slaw, pickled cucumber, spring onion, addictive hoisin mayo on a freshly steamed bao—you can’t get better than that, we reckon!
For those who like to get a little down n’ dirty, the Hickory smoke BBQ baby back pork ribs are for you. Or, if you’re after a classic with a unique twang, you’ll want to check out the Japanese Coleslaw. Made up of julienned red and white cabbage, carrots and daikons served with Japanese-seasoned kombu and sesame soy dressing, it's one you’re going to want by your side when smashing out the insane stack of ribs.
You’re going to want to save some room for the heavenly chocolate brownie pistachio ice cream burger. With smooth pistachio ice cream drizzled in chocolate and encased in a hot, indulgent house-made brownie, you may even want to be cheeky and start with dessert!
In amongst all the awesomeness, Burger Lab are also offering a grand selection of Phoenix drinks, homemade smoothies, freshly brewed coffee and shakes to die for.
So what are you waiting for? Head along to Jervois Road and check out the wonderful and wacky creations coming out of Auckland’s very own Burger Lab!
