BL Burgers Darlinghurst
BL is the burger shop takeout spinoff of James and Sarah Robbins’ cult burger palace, Bar Luca. The new venue serves the same burgers as Bar Luca, including the weekly special. One example of which is the Rye Hard: a Wagyu patty with Swiss cheese, pastrami, pickles and a “rye” aioli made with seeded mustard, caraway and a rye-whiskey-infused mayo.
The poutine burger is the notorious Blame Canada, a monstrous stack of Wagyu beef, maple-glazed bacon, poutine, maple aioli and a double serving of American cheese. It’s the same burger that in 2015 was voted the best in town by Sydney’s most zealous burger fans: (The Fatties Burger Appreciation Society).
The rest of the menu is made up of outrageous burger add-ons (fried-cheese patty; fried chicken; five types of aioli), chips and soft drinks.
There’s not many places to sit or even to wait. It’s an alley-wide space with a bench on either wall (made of reclaimed timber from Single Origin), a burger slide and a mural from ex-Mambo head designer, Brent Smith.
