Emma, Martha, Annie, Elizabeth. What do they have in common?
Well, these are the names of the "Juicy Lucy" style burgers of Jack the Ripper. Located in the same food court as many other non-conventional stalls such as Immanuel French Kitchen, Two Wings and In the Brickyard, this burger joint is run by the same team behind another same-location German sausage house Stew Kuche. In addition, being are the brainchild of Absinthe's Executive chef Nicolas Reynard, you know that these dangerously delicious burgers possess something different already.
The 7 choices of burgers (6 beef and 1 chicken) might not seem many, but each man-sized is specially crafted to appease even the most finnicky palates. All the beef options share the same fundamental "Juicy Lucy" recipe for the patties, only to be distinguished from each other with variated toppings ranging from Crispy Bacon to Spicy Guacamole.Pardon the mess of this close up shot as the it is simply too juicy and flavourful.
Let me introduce Ms Elizabeth, a combination of 150g "Juicy Lucy Style" Aussie WAGYU BEEF Pattie oozing with CHEESE on romaine lettuce, tomatoes and Sweet ONION Relish in between two freshly toasted Golden Brioches, which are thick enough to absorb the juices underneath the fragrant crust.
The beef patties are served rosy pink on the insides and just perfectly seasoned, making them easy to conquer without triggering any fatigue.
For non-beef eaters, try Catherine, the same burger buns sandwiches with Teriyaki Chicken on Lemon Mayonnaise, Romaine Lettuce and Red Onion. The chicken is grilled to slightly charred brown perfection without sacrificing the juices. I would prefer to have more of the tangy mayonnaise since it would help to add a refreshing vibe to the burger.
At an average price of $18, all burgers come with french fries and dipping sauce. These might not be the cheapest option around but honestly very value-for-money considering quality and portion. Good to know that GST is not charged here.
