Parlour Burger at The Morrison
Step in from the street, or down a short flight of wooden stairs from George Street oyster house, The Morrison, and you’ll find an Irish sports bar with a healthy selection of beer taps, dark-wood and leather. This is old-school CBD, before ironic chesterfields and craft beers. Local brewers are well represented with Kosciusko and Little Creatures supplying the stand-out beers on tap.
Orders should be directed towards the bar, before you grab your number and decide if you are a booth or a stool person— no surprises that the booths fill up first. The menu is brief, but covers a lot of ground with just five burgers to accommodate vegetarians, pescatarians and spice-lovers. You will be given the option of a well-done or pink patty, and the unsure should ere on the side of caution— pink does mean pink. For the larger appetite there are a few— heavy on the deep-fry— classic American sides, deep-fried pickles, cabbage and Parmesan slaw, onion rings and duck fat chips. Try the Black Widow, a charcoal blackened brioche bun filled with a beef patty and finished off by a healthy dose of hot-sauce.
