Charlie & Co.

Charlie & Co. 15th June 2012
The Sydney Room Level 5, Westfield - Cnr Market & Castlereagh St Sydney

Kim had...
The South American $15 (eat in)
Spiced minced beef, Argentinean chimichurri sauce, jalapenos, onion and sweet corn relis

Well this review is long overdue, we had the burger about 2 weeks ago, but due to the demands of work, I kept putting it off. The store is located inside Westfields so it does get really busy during lunch time, so it pays to pay the extra $2 to get a seat. 

Anyways, after our long walk from the office (about 25mins walk), we happily sat down & ordered our meals. 

I got the South American burger. You’d think that after 2 weeks I’d probably forget what the burger tasted like, but that’s not the case. The burger was actually really good, beef patty was a fairly decent size, cooked well, the sauce was fantastic and it was definitely something different with the sweet corn in my burger. I don’t remember tasting the jalapenos in my burger so I am a little disappointed with that. 

Overall I’d say it was a great burger.

I think Paul enjoyed his burger – picture inserted below (unless Paul went in & removed it…)

Score 4 out of 5
Last week’s burger review will also be up shortly =)


Paul had...

The Federation Burger ($18 dine in)
Seasoned angus beef pattie with tomato relish, tomates, lettuce, aged cheddar, fried egg, bacon sauteed onion and aioli.

This burger has a serious slab of beef, and it's of a good quality. It's cooked well and ingredients are fresh. You could be overwhelmed by the number of different flavours going on, but they work reasonably well together. A little extra tomato relish would have been more to my liking.

We just rate the taste and quality of the burger at the The Sydney Burger Blog, but the extra $2 for dining in is good value in this busy food court. 

Paul's score: 3.5

Pete had...

Double Cheese & Bacon


Next stop on our burger blog tour saw us at Charlie and Co Westfield Sydney where I decided to order ‘The double Cheese and Bacon’, which consisted of ground angus beef pattie with double melted cheddar cheese, smoked bacon and tomato sauce on a glazed sesame seed bun.
First impressions of the burger looked good and when I took my first bite, it lived up to my expectations of what a good bacon & cheese burger ought to be. Consistency of the pattie was perfectly moist; the smoky bacon gave it a great flavour along with the melted cheddar cheese, but the tomato sauce was slightly bland and could have done with a bit more taste. Or could it be that Charlie & Co deliberately did that to try and over power the taste of the other ingredients – I wonder?

Being a premium top notch burger establishment the price of $14 I think was considered reasonable, but if you wanted to dine in be prepared to pay an extra $2 for the privilege.  

Very happy!

Pete's score: 4.5
