East of Norman

Venison and emu carpaccio with cumquat

East of Norman is a fresh faced kitchen and bar that has opened up on Sturt Street in the CBD, just a short stroll west from the Kings Hotel (or East of Norman Street, if you prefer that as a landmark). We were invited along by Adelaide Food Central for the media launch, and as such all food and beverages ...

Hotel Crown – Victor Harbour

The Crown Burger, beef variety. Also chicken and falafel available

Situated within a couple of decent stone throws away from the ocean, with nothing but some grass and a couple of trees between their doors and the water, the Hotel Crown is in a pretty good location. While a good rule of thumb is to eat seafood if you are that close to the water, we were here to see ...

Coopers Burger Shack/Coffee Central


For those that have been through the mall this summer, you may have noticed the new pop-up that has gone into the space near the Richmond Hotel. It would have been hard to miss the white pickets and umbrellas espousing the Coopers Branding, not to mention all the people sitting there over lunch times drinking Coopers beverages and consuming burgers.

The Taxpayer – Sliders and Cocktails menu


Cocktails are not your normal, first thought when it comes to food pairing beverages. Of course, there may be people out there who are shaking up a quick martini or cosmopolitan to have with their meals, but I feel quite safe in saying that this will be the exception rather than the rule. Anyone who fits into this category, then ...

The Moseley

The sliders reporting for duty

The Moseley rose from the ashes of the Dublin Hotel a couple of years ago, however we hadn’t crossed their threshold until this very visit. Immediately it impressed with its refit – gone was the dark and moody setting of before, and instead we have space, light and a touch more refinement. The restaurant area downstairs was particularly pleasant as ...

Exeter Hotel


This is a pub in the classic sense of the term. Nothing overly fancy going on at all.  There is a bar for ordering food and drinks, a couple of spaces inside with some tables and chairs to keep your food off the ground, and some more out the front so everyone walking past can have a look at what ...

Pink Moon Saloon


Now before we start – lets just get one thing out of the way. We love an abbreviation here at Burger Me. You know – Burger Theory could be BT. Rob Roy Hotel might become RRH, Bread and Bone turns into B&B through a review. You get the idea. Makes typing quicker, reading kind of easier and more akin with ...

Rob Roy Hotel


When we heard on the grapevine that the crew behind The Taxpayer had acquired the Rob Roy Hotel, we were just a little excited by this.

Holdfast Hotel

The Southern Fried Belle - not the most amazing looking burger, but its seriously great

A question. How many burgers do you think is too many on a pubs menu? 5? 8? Certainly double figures, for a pub, seems a bit silly. Even a burger bar pushing beyond the mid teens is maybe crossing into the ‘are you serious’ category.
