Summary

If you’re after a cheeky burger in Hobart, most will tell you that Burger Got Soul is the place to be. Even before they opened up their Hobart branch, Tasmanians would’ve told you that the original in Launceston was well worth a visit. Family friendly and catering to everyone’s tastebuds, they offer an extensive burger list that is made up of over 30 burgers options with beef, chicken, lamb and veggie. There’s burger inspired free-hand art on the walls, friendly, enthusiastic staff and an all-round relaxed atmosphere at Burger Got Soul. After trying to work out exactly what I’d order I decided to go for their name sake and tried the Soul Burger that comes on your choice of bun (I went Traditional) with 100% lean beef, lettuce, tomato, relish, soul mayo and tasty cheese.

Comments
“As soon as I stepped foot inside this place it felt like a modern franchise. It was a Friday night and full of young families. Which surprised me because I can see these meals getting a little bit expensive. Especially when you ask for ketchup and it’s an extra $1: real greedy if you ask me. The burger was rather uninspiring. It tasted like something you’d get after a game at your local footy club, where Norm has popped down to the local supermarket, left the patties in the back of the Commodore for half the day and has decided that the darker the better. There was very little flavour to the patties but lucky for me there was tonnes of sauce and lettuce! I have no idea why this is popular. There are other places on my radar for next time. I’ll be heading there instead.”

Summary

About an hour south of Hobart (add in a 20 minute ferry ride) and you’ll be driving across Bruny Island. Surprisingly large in land mass, generally compared with Singapore’s, Bruny Island is home to about 650 people (Singapore has over 5 million) so it makes a perfect escape from the daily grind. Covered in beautiful vegetation, mountains and surrounded by unruly oceans there’s not much to do but to take in the sights and then enjoy the local produce. The Bruny Island Winery is Australia’s southernmost vineyard and is owned by Richard and Bernice Woolley who bought the Wayaree Estate property in 1997. Their Winebar and Grill lets you match some of their award winning wines along with sampling plenty of regional produce. I sat down with my babein’ accomplice, grabbed a Pinot Noir and ordered the Premium Beef Burger that came on crusty roll with a beef pattie from Hat’s Farm next door, cheese, lettuce, tomato, onion, chilli jam and tomato sauce.

Comments
“It sounded pretty decent when I read the list of ingredients; all super enticing and I knew they’d be local. Upon arrival I couldn’t but blurt out a profanity. To say I was shocked was an understatement. “What was goig on with that bread?”, I thought to myself. The cerated knife stabbed through the middle would come in handy, because I knew that it wasn’t going to be pretty if I’d tackled this as a whole. When I cut it in half, squished it down and finally bit I was actually happy. All the elements were tasty and co-operated in their pursuit of pleasing my taste-buds. The chilli jam was the highlight followed by the sweet, fat coated beef. This could’ve been next level if they went for a more traditional bun. The ciabatta-style bread was enjoyable, but I’d rather leave it to dips and antipasto plates as opposed to the humble hamburger. Overall, not a bad, unorthodox burger that’s worth popping in for.”
