Déjà vu … As a venue Flamed Burgers is huge. The indoor area is big enough but then you walk outside and it’s like an arena. A funky arena. It’s a hot day and I see a water misting machine. We decide to sit outside and be mistified. See what I did there.
Ordering was easy. There is a huge menu on the wall and one outside to tempt people in. The waiter was friendly and we were even offered a carafe of water. Our preferred tipple for lunch usually. So, we ordered, paid, took our number and headed out to find a table.
Being a Friday lunch it was pretty barren. Only a couple of tables filled. But that didn’t deter us. Taking in the outdoor area there was a rather unique mishmash of furniture. But overall appealing and really different. Liked the red and black tiles, the high tables and that one low table at the back.
The food was upon us quite promptly and holding Xena back I took some quick photos. Xena dived into the food as soon as the camera clicked shut.
We had ordered a Barramundi Burger with Chips. There were little things about this Burger that were very appealing. Brioche Bun. There was your typical mayonnaise on the salad. But also a zesty tomato relish on the bottom. There were gherkins spiked into the burger for decoration. I love gherkins. There was a small bowl of coleslaw. Our Waiter had also cut the Burger in half, so we could share. I felt appreciated as a customer.
The other thing I Iiked was that the Barramundi was crumbed in a crispy crunchy kind of way. Nice. The fish was obviously frozen but it didn’t matter because the texture was still there. The coleslaw was great.
The chips were crinkle cut and of the frozen variety. But biting into the first one was a little taste experience of its own. Some pretty decent salt and a really pleasant back taste of some expensive oil or other. Nice.
Then there is the elephant in the room. It is a little too familiar. But an imposter nonetheless. They are doing it well though and there are just enough differences to make them unique.
