After falling victim to a fire in March (thankfully no one was hurt), Surry Hills’ Chur Burger rises from the ashes today. The reopening sees the little burger shack, owned by Warren Turnbull, taking over Turnbull’s former Albion Street Kitchen, just around the bend from the burger joint’s original digs. The change means that the more accessible option is open to more people and will see the laneway revived again later this year.
With the new shake-up, there’s not only a bigger space, but a bigger menu, longer hours (lunch and dinner) and the all-too-perfect accompaniment to a burger: beer (or even a wine if you’re that way inclined).
If you’re hankering after more than a burger, you can go bigger, with dishes like jerk chicken and grilled flat iron steak adding to the list of reasons to drop in, whether you’ve been before or not. Desserts like smashed pavlova and macadamia pie with whiskey ice cream also feature.
And if hunger happens to strike between 4pm and 5pm any day of the week, you’re looking at a mere $15 for a burger and beer. So with that in mind, make sure to make multiple visits just to make up for all those opportunities you’ve lost since March.
