Summary

Located just moments from Williamtowns’s picturesque strand with views of the bay and Melbourne skyline, Burger culture offers a large variety of beef, chicken and veggie burgers that you can either eat in or take-away. Our burger came between a sour dough blend bun and featured 95% fat free lean beef, tomato, lettuce, tomato relish, “Culture Mayo”, caramelised onion and Swiss cheese.

Comments
“To me this burger was very “safe”. It wasn’t anything special, nor was it bad. However, I found the bun too large for all the ingredients (you end up with a whole lot of bun left over). Everything was quite fresh though and I really enjoyed their tomato relish. I’m a big fan of people making their own mayo but in this case the spices they used were a little overpowering.”
“The bun was large but I thought it helped trap all of the ingredients in and stopped them from falling out. The mayo was too herby and overpowered the flavour of the swiss cheese and onion, which individually tasted great. I would order this next time without the mayo so the beef becomes the primary flavour.”
“I found all the ingredients well placed. For me, none of the flavours were overpowering and it was a good fulfilling experience. It was hard for us to decide on what burger to have; we had 8 beef burgers to choose from, not counting the chicken and vegie burgers offered. I really liked the beef and the relish. I think if I had to pick something that let it down I would choose the bun.. I found it a little stale actually. I would go back again to try the other burgers on offer. Chips were ok.”
“I understand people are health concious these days, but as one of our readers pointed out and reinforced recently, a good burger is choc-full of fat. Why kid yourself and pretend you’re having a light meal (I’m referring to their 95% fat free beef patties ofcourse). Anyhow, the New Yorker was nothing like New York. So fail right there. But they added Swiss cheese, which is always a bonus in my book, and make their own blend of mayonnaise, which I swear is Mayo + Moroccon Mix spices.”

Summary

First opened in New York City in 1965, and now expanded to over 700 restaurants in 54 countries, TGI’s has a lot to boast about. Two impressive feats include serving 19.8 million hamburgers worldwide, and starting the concept of “Happy Hour”. With a reputation for delivering huge American-style meals, our burger of choice was topped with sautéed mushrooms, caramelised onions, melted Swiss cheese, mayonnaise and a side of crunchy fries.

Comments
“Mushrooms! Combining them with such a tender juicy meat pattie you really are getting something a little unique. With some sweet caramelised onion atop the pattie and some fresh spanish onion below, I can’t remember the last time I was so impressed by onion. I was a little let down by the cheese though, it’s flavour didn’t really come through like I was hoping it would.”
“I was not expecting this. I would not typically order this burger but I’m so glad we did. Couldn’t tell you what the beef or the cheese tasted like and frankly, I didn’t care. This burger is all about the blending flavours of the mushrooms and onion. Pretty and pleasant waitresses, all happy to refill your glass of coke is pure bliss.”
“Meant to be an International burger (by TGI standards), I thought it was more of a common sense burger. But rather than entering a debate about what International means to me, all I can say is that you must have this burger. It had a good amount of mushrooms, which I thought needed a touch more seasoning, but still quite passable, a very juicy pattie and sweet caramelised onions. Chips at TGI’s are always good.”
“Delicious.
A mushroom trip that puts Amsterdam to shame.”
