Burgers Anonymous just popped out of nowhere on Sydney’s Oxford Street, fashioning itself after hit TV series Breaking Bad and pumping out classic American style burgers, focused on simple done good. The new burger joint only just opened and has already been selling out of burgers, unsurprisingly.
As reported by Broadsheet, co-owner David Tang describes his creations as simple, basic burgers with the regular staples: pickles, tomato, onion, melted American cheese, sauce, and a patty which uses a Hunter Valley Premium Meats blend. “It’s a lot more expensive but it gives a better taste. It’s not your normal cut”, Tang told Broadsheet.
Of course, any burger joint with a theme must at least stick to it so those heading along will find a big mural of a cook-ready Walter White by Cristian Silva, overlooking shelves full of beakers, and hazmat suits hanging from the wall. There’s also a node to Jessie Pinkman in the soundtrack, with a healthy dose of hip-hop blasting from the speakers.
Though the standard burger is simple at Burgers Anonymous there are plenty of impressive creations like The Heisenburger which is a double with extra cheese topped with double-smoked, tripled-glazed bacon, The Hipster which is a veggie burger with a patty made of quinoa, beans, and capsicum, and The Miyagi, a Japanese-marinated spicy peanut burger. There’s also a simple selection of sides: thin fries with the option of bacon and cheese topping, and fried pickles. Alcoholic drinks will be available to wash these down, and Tang has indicated to Broadsheet that dessert options may include a deep-fried peanut-butter-jelly sandwich.
Oxford Street’s burger scene is set to get stronger this year. In addition to Burgers Anonymous, just down the road will be another burger restaurant coming from the guys behind Sydney favourites Bar Luca, with their famous Blame Canada poutine burger. There’s also a super secret joint in the works just off Oxford Street which should be revealed in the coming weeks.
