Food blogging – Chur Burger


My brother and I occasionally go out for dinner and have decided to review our respective experiences. So, in a nutshell, one meal, two points of view. You can find his blog at:

Without further ado, we bring you Chur burger in Surry Hills, Sydney.

The pictures above do the food justice – pure deliciousness.

We were lining up – waited 15 minutes – really? For a Burger?

The clientage is largely Asian, and 20 years younger than me, reflecting the general neighbourhood demographic.

Finally seated, we overlook the magnificence that is Surry Hills.


Muzak is thumping in a neverending blend of bass and fragments of melody – while conversation acquits itself well in the competition to achieve maximum cacophony. Smells are wafting through the humid air in not at all unpleasant profusion – the juxtaposition of auditory and olfactory pleasure/pains is not lost on this humble scribe.

The menu is simple, with a burger of every carnivorous variety as well as vegetarian options. The chips are crunchy and the burgers a delightful explosion of flavours. I myself enjoyed the pulled pork – a revelation if you go in for that sort of thing. We also ordered coleslaw and the iceberg salad – slightly too salty for my taste.

Which brings me to the drinks – a variety of up market soft drinks, shakes and beers, something for everyone.

All in all, I highly recommend the Chur to all burger enthusiasts – you will not be disappointed, but if you want to avoid a queue, go early.
