Bad Love Burger Co
Bad Love Burger Co is the bricks-and-mortar diner from pop-up bowls club burger joint, Smashburger BBQ. They do gloriously stacked smashed double-beef burgers, fried chicken burgers and Philly cheesesteaks from their Leederville restaurant.
Architect Tristan Chambers started the burger business as a part time creative outlet and spent 18 months developing his product. All Bad Love beef burgers are doubles by default – don’t even think about asking for a single. They specialise in the smashed patty, where mince is smashed on the hotplate with a spatula. The burgers have already proven themselves to be winners with the public.
Chose from five double-beef and two free-range fried-chicken-thigh burgers, adorned with various combinations of pickled cucumbers and jalapenos; bacon; tomato; lettuce; and condiments such as onion jam, bourbon mayo and raw cold-smoked honey. You can grab seasoned fries and Philly cheesesteak on the side.
Bad Love’s stool-heavy fit-out is basic but practical, with a single pink neon sign on the interior wall the only identifying mark.
