I’m easing my way back lightly into the world of blogging with burgers. Last year in Melbourne I fell in love with Royal Stacks and up until then my favourite burger joints were Mister Gee Burger Truck in Sydney and Betty’s Burgers in Noosa. I’m not a huge burger aficionado or crazy burger lover but I definitely have an appreciation for a well constructed burger because when you think about it, there’s nothing more disappointing than an average burger. I’m pretty basic with my burger needs – good patty, the right bread choice, and minimal condiments. There are so many claims to fame for the best burger around, and of course everyone has their one and only ride-or-die. I’d seen Royal Stack’s name thrown into the ring on more than one occasion so how did it stack up? (Bad pun intended)
Saint $13.90 Two all Australian pasture fed beef patties, minced fresh daily, double bacon, American cheddar, caramelised onion, American mustard, tomato sauce, and pickles
Royal Stacks opened in Chatswood Westfield last year and in no time at all I ventured across the bridge to get my little paws on a burger. Described as a homage to Shake Shack, it’s really no stretch of the imagination to see why. I, for one, couldn’t care less for the comparison as my Shake Shack experiences have been way below average. The Saint burger is basically everything you need in a kickass burger and straight to the point – it was fucking delicious. There’s a burger option to please everyone, from the basic Single Stack to the vegetarian Queen Bee or crazier Bacon Bacon. Don’t forget to pick up a concrete mixer and enjoy!
Quick little shoutout to the wonderful people who have continually encouraged me to keep writing whether it be about food, travel, lifestyle, or mental health. I really do appreciate the encouragement, particularly because writing and taking photographs is something I genuinely get joy out of. There are so many bloggers out there right now in the game to get free stuff, become insta-famous or for a slate of other reasons. I sincerely love writing, putting together content from my perspective and sharing it with the world. My blog is somewhat of fancy digital journal of my life where I get to look back and relive the emotions of how I felt when I went somewhere; whether that be good or bad. I’ve got a huge backlog of mostly travel content that I’d love to post eventually but we’ll see how quickly that comes into fruition.
