Awarding best chips in Sydney to the Newtown Hotel, I’m delighted to inform you that their $12 bacon cheeseburger is pretty rad too. It’s brimming with dinge and is a little bit less pretty-looking which always equates to awesomeness – it’s those pristine, monumental Adonises of burgers that turn out to be buggers, lacking flavour and lip smack.
The meat is blackened around the edges and is a bit greasy. Yes! That’s what we want. The bacon is fleshy and gives that salt hit. Everything falls into place to create a worthy burger experience and for $12 for this burger and those chips, it’s a pretty rockin’ bargain.
