It was only a matter of time before an eatery dedicated to sliders was opened in Sydney, and this one is a sparkling new takeaway bar at the Met Centre in Wynyard catering to the suits who work around there.
They had an enticing lunch special of $9 for 3 of their gourmet sliders and who can resist these cute little bite sized burgers in a variety of interesting flavours? Certainly not yours truly, and with my best friend we picked a few to sample, leaving the choice of bread up to the shop to surprise us with.
We ended up with the chicken pesto, lamb falafel and cheese burger sliders. The flavours were strong in the first 2 sliders but they weren’t particularly moreish and surprisingly, it was the humble cheeseburger with relish that was the winner of the lot.

On first appearances, this sleek French themed eatery was a promising food court option for lunchbreaks, but I’m not sure I’ll be back for more given that 2/3 of our choices were disappointing. Although maybe I’ll just come back for the cheeseburger as a classier alternative to scoffing down fast food!
