I mourned the loss and closure of Albion Street Kitchen, it seems as though its life was so short lived and I only got to visit once! When I heard that it had been replaced by a burger venture, I wasn't super excited - it seems like there is no shortage of 'upscale fast food' joints in Sydney these days. Nevertheless, I still had to go see what the fuss was about, especially since Chur Burger is parading around the line of 'Voted the best burger in Sydney'.
It was a Friday night and the place was pumping, literally. The music was so loud, I was straining to hear the staff stationed at the door and she was standing less than a metre from me! It turned out she was saying that we had to put our names down for a table and we agreed to hover awkwardly around the front door until a table became free.
We waited for about ten to fifteen minutes and two spots at the counter facing the windows became free. We had ordered while we were waiting for a table and the food arrived separately, with the milkshake coming out first, then the burgers, then the fries a bit later.
I would have liked more flavour on the sweet potato fries, the taste reminded me of the baked sweet potato that I occasionally eat at home.
