Hoodburger Inglewood is the second Hoodburger – and its first “proper” restaurant.
The ’80s fast-food fit-out may seem simple, but take a step back and you’ll see the playful genius of installing what is effectively a drive-through kiosk inside a restaurant (the gap between the counter and the seats is meant to represent the “driveway”). Extra seating is available in the courtyard behind the restaurant, which has more of a bar-type feel.
The Hoodburger menu keeps things simple, with most items a variation on a cheeseburger or chicken tender sandwich. Signature items include the Hot Cheeseburger (essential for chilli fans) and the honey chicken-inspired Honey Butter burger. A highlight is the chicken tender mash and gravy sandwich, which was the most successful item to emerge from Northbridge’s Tuesday night “Test Kitchen” (the concept now runs at both outlets).
