Burgers, satisfaction, lip smackin' fun. I head to Inferno Grill and Cafe again for some burger fun. I've missed the mighty burgers from Inferno Grill and Cafe and I know Matt is hankering for a decent burger.
People travel to Maroubra especially for Inferno's amazing burgers and it's no different on this particular day as the venue completely fills up by 12:15pm. Matt and I meet some friends and catch up on all things burgs. Matt start off with a refreshing beer. I have a cheeky shiraz. I love that Inferno Grill and Cafe is licensed. For those who aren't drinking, there's also a great shake selection.
There are lots of burgers to choose from but there's a few that especially caught my eye. Firstly there was The Donald Mick Ronald ($15, above) has double meat, 4x American cheddar cheese, lettuce, pickles with big yakk sauce. There is golden silence as D eats the Donald Mick Ronald. The double beef patty is tender and juicy with a nice balance of cheese and sauce. Total satisfaction and highly recommended.
If you're more of a chicken fan then there's also the Pig Kahuna ($16) which has southern fried chicken, aunt jamima glazed bacon, avocado, coleslaw, honey mustard mayo and aged cheddar. The crunchy chicken and bacon is a winning combination and the crunchy slaw provides refreshing textural relief from the protein. Make sure you are hungry for this gorgeous burger.
If you're not a burger fan, then there's the Greek Tasting Plate ($22) has lamb souvaki, calamari, grilled haloumi, greek salad, fresh salsa, pitta bread and Inferno's famous rosemary chips. I pile on the garlic sauce, add in the lamb and chips and I've got a mini kebab/gyros. I enjoy the salty haloumi with the greek salad. The calamari is a nice addition as well.
I don't have a favourite burger as they are all special in their own ways but I naturally prefer a good fried chicken burger so the pig kahuna is probably my favourite today. You can also make them a combination (i.e add fries and a drink for $6).
