Adelaide seems to be becoming a popular hub for burger joints that are increasingly catching up to the current trend and providing a number of non-vegetarian, vegetarian, gluten-free and vegan options. Having had most burger joints remain central to the Adelaide CBD, it is refreshing to see a new addition to the burger family out in Glenelg. Adelaide Food Central was invited to have a taste of the Bay’s newest burger joint – Burganomix. All food that has been reviewed in this article was provided to the team free of charge.
Upon walking into Burganomix, the openness of the burger joint captured my attention straight away. Adorned with colourful chairs and rustic wooden tables, coupled with some subtle lighting aesthetic, I could sense Burganomix’s vision of projecting themselves as a place where anyone and everyone is welcome in their small but comfortable establishment with open arms. Located right across the road from Glenelg beach, it is no surprise that there were customers quickly filling up Burganomix as midday approached.
The staff members at Burganomix were down-to-earth people who provided us with quality hospitality and made sure that our needs were catered to in the best manner possible.
For the side dishes, we ordered the Onion Rings, Sweet Potato Wedges, and Smokey BBQ Chicken Wings.
The Onion Rings were cooked brilliantly, with a beautiful crispy outer layer and soft onion filling on the inside. It was neither too salty nor too sweet, which made this appetizer dish very enjoyable.
The Sweet Potato Wedges were generous in size and portion. Similar to the onion rings, there was a perfect balance between sweet and savoury, which made this side dish a delightfully desirable pack to munch on, while walking down the Jetty.
The Smokey BBQ Chicken Wings delivered well – both on presentation as well as taste. I particularly liked the light seasoning of sesame seeds on top, which gave the wings a unique taste that pleased my tastebuds!
The Double Decker Beef Burger had 2 patties, a combination of two cheeses (cheddar and Swiss), pancetta, Spanish onion, pickles, lettuce, tomato chutney and mayonnaise. The beef patties were a decent size and were of the same diameter as the bun. The meat was well seasoned and the beef cooked to perfection. I particularly liked the way the cheese was nicely melted over the patties. The pancetta was fried until crispy and its subtle saltiness was balanced by the natural sweetness of the onion and tomato chutney, and the sourness of the pickles. A very well balanced burger held together by firm brioche bun.
The Fog Horn Chicken Burger had a lovely combination of ingredients such as chicken, avocado, Spanish onion, chipotle pepper sauce, Swiss cheese, tomato, lettuce and cucumber. The flavours complemented each other really well and the chicken was cooked well enough to taste absolutely scrumptious. This burger was a smashing hit in my books because the avocado lover in me was happy for the refreshing, cool aftertaste that it provided to counterbalance the spiciness brought about by the chipotle pepper sauce.
With over 30 burger varieties to choose from, I’m sure customers of Burganomix will find something appetizing to relish themselves in and leave the burger joint with a food coma of the best kind. Next time you find yourself by the Bay, make sure you stop by and check out this lovely, new place that offers a variety of delicious options of burgers and let the burger lover in you have their cravings satisfied to the full!
