My favourite Vivid light installations and shows are the giant octopus which is the entrance to Hawker lane. There's drums below and all the kids are going nuts playing them.
The Orchard Tavern has a Special Vivid Burger ($22). It has a crispy skin pork belly, crispy bacon, pulled pork, peri peri mayo, swiss cheese, rocket and slow roasted tomatoes on a charcoal bun. It also comes with a side of rosemary and seasalt chips w aioli. I'm really enjoying the thicker, crumbly charcoal bun as it holds the meat together very well. You just need a good hand to hold it together. I'm finding that a lot of buns these days are brioche so they are quite sweet. I like this more savoury, crumbly bun.
Matt looks completely satisfied and happy biting into the pulled pork pieces and that pork belly. The bacon adds a touch of crunch. It's quite a big burger so make sure you're hungry. I'd def recommend ordering the vivid burger.
There's also vivid cocktails. Ask the staff for info. This burger is available until 17 June so enjoy my friends!
Overall, I had a really nice walk around Chatswood and satisfied my hunger! Check out tomorrow's post for a dessert Vivid special.
