Melbourne burger don Dani Zeini (Dandenong Pavilion, Easy’s, Truck Stop Deluxe, and more) is planning on bringing his popular Royal Stacks up the east coast to Sydney’s Chatswood in a little over a month from now. Confirmed recently, the popular burger joint will be opening up its first ever NSW store in Westfield Chatswood, sharpening a focus on fresh, simple, and high quality burgers, mirroring the modern interpretation of U.S chains that has characterised Sydney’s scene.
Though Sydney is brimming with juicy burgers right now, there’s always room for a name that’s already well established with Australian burger fiends. Royal Stacks should slot in well on the North Shore, where the local scene is already being handled well by Five Points in North Sydney and Chef’s Kitchen in St Leonards.
Royal Stacks won’t be coming without a point of different though, with Zeini also including his playful frozen custards, waffles, and potato gems as some of the many extras that will be accompanying the burgers on the menu, a list which features the classic Single Stack (beef patty, tomato, butter lettuce, American cheddar, special sauce, and pickles), the Prince Harry (with a horseradish, shallot, and gherkin mayo sauce), Miss Elizabeth (with truffle mayo), and The King (which stacks on some mac’n’cheese croquettes for good measure).
The choices of frozen custard is of particular interest, especially since the flavours include a Ferrero Rocher, some Nutella Swirl, indulgent Cookie Dough, and others created by Mark Mariotti of St Kilda’s 7 Apples.
“I’ve been obsessed with US burger culture for several years,” said Dani. “Bringing this kind of culture to Australia but focusing on ethically and locally sourced ingredients is something I’ve always been excited about.”
Royal Stacks Chatswood opens on 31st August 2016. For more information on Royal Stacks click HERE.
