Burger Theory

Have you heard of Burger Theory? I hadn't until my friend posted on Facebook about catching the truck off Rundle Street one night - what do you mean catch the truck? I was intrigued, this felt novel. I want to be there! Burger Theory sells the idea of gourmet or quality fast food. It was started by two very bright gentlemen (whoever comes up with burger on the move is a genius!) Rob and Dan. The Burger Theory kitchen truck is a work of art in itself, covered in graffiti it's already enticing in its own way. The truck travels around to different locations in the city and only stops for 3 hours at a time, the exclusivity only makes you want it more. Coming from Malaysia I love the idea of good street food and this culture seems to be spreading right here in Adelaide with the burger boys setting high standards. No longer do we have to settle for soggy chips or cheap hot dogs. 


When we got there, a long line already formed and the aroma coming from the truck made me incredibly hungry. Their menu is simple. Two types of burgers, with or without fries and drinks. The boys in the truck are hard at work and every burger is made fresh. They use 100% Coorong Angus Beef and the boys ground the beef themselves to avoid unnecessary additives. We ordered one of each type of burger and got our food in less than 10 minutes. 

Piping hot

Burger No.1 - Iceberg lettuce, tomato, American cheese and Truck sauce  $8.00

When the burgers arrived it looked really good. They use Bread Top buns which are Asian style soft and fluffy buns with a subtle sweet taste. I love Bread Top so we're on to a winner, we have to be. I took a bite into this burger that people have been raving on about. I took another bite. And another bite. It was ah-maaaazing! The beef patty was juicy and flavoursome, the truck sauce was perfect. It is definitely one of the best burgers I've had. 


Burger No. 2 - Crispy pancetta, onion confit and Adelaide Blue cheese sauce $10.00

I then tried burger no. 2. Once again I was wowed by the juicy goodness of this beef patty that is so well seasoned and made. With pancetta and blue cheese this burger ala gourmet is de-lish. I loved both burgers but if I really really had to pick one I'd pick burger no. 1 because I love the crunch of lettuce and biting into juicy tomato. Burger no. 2 got a bit too salty for me. You can add fries and drink to your meal for $5.00

It looks like these boys have got it all down pat. They have a winning recipe and a winning formula too by the looks of the number of people queuing for their burger! I'm glad they started Burger Theory because quality street food and quality fast food is hard to find. It's great to see Adelaide starting to have such "luxury"!
