The Don Northbridge, 231 Newcastle Street, Northbridge, Phone 6150 7885.
Nothing Ever Lasts Forever … And for The Don Burgers that was their night time Pop Up in Victoria Park. After a couple of years the venue was simply closed. But wait, there’s a silver lining because The Don of Northbridge has opened.
So, I’ve been dying to try their ramen karaage chicken burger for years. Driving down Newcastle street yesterday and there they were open for business. A screech of brakes and a vacant car space and I was in.
Love their menu, it’s full of prawn dumplings, a few different Bao plus noodles, soups and desserts. Believe me, if I’d had time I would have stayed for the pandan layer cake. Or, was that Matcha? Either way it looked sensational.
So, my burger was definitely of the too big for my mouth variety and cutting it in half was the only way around it.
The ramen bun was very interesting, toasted not fried and kind of springy like noodles generally are. But I did miss the bun and decided I probably would order the Brioche next time.
Oh, and a few words about that karaage chicken which was super crunchy on the outside but still moist and delicious chicken on the inside. Yum.
The venue is cute, with a couple of Kimonos hung on the wall and a very nice courtyard area which they hire out for weddings.
Inevitably my parking time was up and I had to take half the burger with me. It still tasted great when I got home.
