Soul Burger – Review

Soul Burger – Review

You might have noticed we’ve been a bit quiet lately. That’s because we’ve moved from Melbourne, spent 3 weeks travelling around Australia, and then headed to New Zealand, where we are now doing a ski season until October. So with all that going on and getting settled into our new apartment, we’ve ended up lacking a bit on the blog front. But worry no more, as we’re now back and ready to get going again.

Our time in Melbourne led to some seriously tasty vegan food. But Melbourne isn’t the only place with great vegan options, so having the opportunity to travel around the country meant one thing and one thing only; more food!

So our first stop was Sydney, where I knew there was one place I had to visit; Soul Burger. It was a place I’d heard a lot about, so I knew that if we only visited one place on our travels, it would have to be here.

I wouldn’t necessarily call Soul Burger a restaurant. I expected it to be, but it’s not table service. Instead, it’s quite small, with a few tables and you order up at the till. A bit like a fast food chain. That being said, it had a really interesting vibe and loads of yummy options to choose from.

I ended up with the ‘Cheese Burger’, and Sam had the ‘American Badass Burger’. We also got some cheesy fries to share.

My cheese burger was good, but I have to admit, I wasn’t blown away. I was expecting more. It was a plant-based beef patty, cheese, lettuce, tomato pickles, tomato relish and mustard aioli. That’s not saying it wasn’t delicious, but perhaps I ordered wrong. I kind of expected a cheese sauce (my mistake really, because I don’t know why I thought that) but it was just a slice instead. I think a cheese sauce would have been better.

Sam’s burger was massive. Again it was a plant-based beef patty, with veggie slaw, hash brown, onion rings, caramelised onions, mustard and ketchup. He loved it and it was quite spectacular. He said it was great and I wish I’d had it myself, because it did look good.

Finally, the chips were to die for. It was such a great cheese sauce and I really wish I could have them again. You can’t get them as a single portion, so they’re large and we shared them. I’ll be honest, I could have eaten them all myself though.

Overall, the food was great but I think perhaps it might have been slightly overhyped. That being said, I might have chosen wrong, and would definitely go back to try something else.
