As a self-proclaimed “flexitarian” burger joint (a.k.a. flexible and vegetarian) – the boy and I were intrigued by the premise of Soul Burger, so on a sunny Saturday, we set out to discover ethical eating in a burger in Randwick.
The fit-out was all wooden, simple but trendy with industrial pendant lighting and a mix of larger tables and cosy little two person tables bolted to the wall on one side.
As we settled in, out came the Red Fries which were a smattering of beer battered fries seasoned with chili flakes and spices. The tangy hit mixed well with the aioli on the side. Although a little on the soft side for our taste (we like them crunchy!), there were no such issues with the Kumara Fries which came after. The sweet potato fries were prepared simply with a sprinkle of salt, which went down well with the herbed mayo dip.
Red Fries, $4 (Small)
Kumara Fries, $5 (Small)
Ethically raised the meat may be, the ‘Cow’ burger was a massively delicious hit to the taste buds. Partnering grass fed beef with the usual cheese, lettuce, tomato, pickle, mustard aioli and tomato relish – we added some bacon (pasture fed) to complete the burger. The meat was soft and flavoursome, with the sauces providing a savoury complement to bind all the elements together.
Cow Burger, $10
The mint-seasoned grass fed Lamb burger also came with slightly caramelised haloumi which provided a nice twist to the burger. The mint seasoning on the lamb was helped along with plenty of aioli, to create one of the tastiest lamb burgers we’ve ever had. The burgers here come in a fairly decent size for the price, and we could barely manage to get it into bite size portions without some extra effort with our knife and fork.
Lamb Burger, $12
Overall, we loved Soul Burger for their dedication to provide humanely treated meat to our diet while still maintaining their chops in making tasty burgers. Definitely a place to drop by for a good value feed and a beer (or cider) as we head into the warmer months.
