Jake Chalmers Glebe
The burgers at Jake Chalmers are on the simple side. Owners Anthony Gentile and Toby King (a former Nun’s Pool chef) aren’t trying to break new ground. They just love soft, slightly sloppy American-style burgers. Fans of Mary’s will feel at home here.
In recognition of the down-to-earth pub location, the menu includes fish and chips; salt and pepper calamari; and a chicken schnitzel you can give a Mexican parma spin to with spicy Napoli sauce.
Cronulla staples have made the trip. There’s a classic cheeseburger; and the signature Jake Burger with beef, double cheese, mustard, beetroot relish, lettuce and tomato. And a slow-braised pork butt number with crispy kim chi wonton and Sriracha sauce. The range uses soft milk buns, American cheese and 85 to 15 meat-to-fat ratio beef patties for maximum comfort.
