If you read many Sydney food blogs then you’ve probably noticed a flurry of reviews of Moo Gourmet Burgers, reporting the great afternoon a few (well, 19) of us bloggers spent in Moo Newtown’s courtyard. We all put faces to names, and talked blog platforms, photography, recipes and how to get over the embarrassment of taking out your camera in a restaurant.
What with so many glowing reviews already posted, it seems there’s little left for me to say: I could tell you about the friendly welcome from the Moo team, and them spoiling us with goody bags. I could also tell you about the free range eggs and ethically sourced meat that go into all of Moo’s food, leaving a visit light on the conscience as far as animal welfare is concerned. Not mentioning the milkshakes (including the special creme egg milkshake) would certainly be remiss, and it’s also worth thanking VegeTARAian and Miss Piggy for the inspiration, and Detective Chow for the the extreme organisational skills.
I entered into the #burgerparty spirit and opted for a Coke Spider ($5) to go with my Greek Lamb Burger ($15.50) and a huge serving of Cheesy Bacon Chips ($8.95). Complete with tzatziki and baby spinach, the Saltbush lamb burger was juicy and had sufficient structure for easy eating, and the addition of bacon and gooey cheese to hot chips was never going to be a bad option — especially with so many hungry people around.
Then with photos taken, sugar rushes starting to fade, and a comprehensive review of the menu completed, it was time to grab our party bags and head home.
