Chur Burger - Surry Hills, Sydney

Chur Burger has become a firm favourite for an indulgent work day lunch. Voted the best burgets in Sydney, according to the Good Food section of the Sydney Morning Herald.

Chur Burger is the brainchild of Warren Turnbull, of two-hat Assiette fame. Lunch times are packed, and it's best to get in early to nab a seat in the bustling shop.

I've been at the previous hole-in-the-wall garage venue and the new space on Albion, and have to say I was impressed at the setup of the new place. 

Sweet potato fries

Delicious and chunky fries with a hint of garlic and line. Unfortunately these weren't quite as crispy as we hoped for, but I loved the zingy addition of lime nonetheless. 

Fish burger with side of chips with chilli salt

The sesame seed brioche bun is soft and the perfect casing for the quality fillings. 

The fish option is a crumbed Chatham island blue cod with pickled cucumber, lemon mayo and dill. Absolutely delicious!

Marinated grilled chicken, hot sauce mayo, minted slaw

On my second visit, I opt for the chicken burger. The chicken is very tender and goes down a treat with the coleslaw.

Grilled beef, cheese, tomato jam, mustard mayo, pickle

Miss V has the beef burger and exclaims that it is also very good. Will definitely have to try it next time!

Macadamia pie with whiskey ice cream

Miss V and I decide on a dessert to share, and I pick the macadamia pie. Extremely sticky and sweet, though the ice cream helps cut through the richness.

Hard to argue against their claim of the best burger in Sydney - I haven't tried enough burgers in Sydney to support that, but I have to agree that it would be a strong contender, and very reasonably priced at $10.
