The Rocks Burger Takeover
International Burger Day

The Rocks Burger Takeover

We invited revellers to take their tastebuds on the trip of a lifetime with outrageous and one-of-a-kind burgers creations.
28 May 2023
Juice dripping down your chin. Gooey cheese melting over a juicy beef patty. Tangy burger sauce and zingy pickles encased by pillowy buns. There’s nothing quite like a good old fashioned burger.
In honour of International Burger Day, we challenged some of the best chefs in The Rocks to cook the most delicious, outrageous burgers they could imagine. Now we’re challenging you to find them and taste them all.
They’re only here for a limited time so you better get moving!
Deep fried cheese burger | The Mercantile

A burger so crazy it works - The Merc’s beef burger deep fried and covered in mozzarella sauce. 

The Mercantile serves one of the best pub-burgers in Sydney, so when they put their heads together to figure out how to make them even better they were stumped. That is until one brilliant madman asked:

“Why don’t we deep fry it?”

The team in the kitchen added smoky Jameson sauce and smashed avo to their beef burger, dipped it in the deep fryer then slathered it in mozzarella sauce - and we can confirm, it’s delicious. This beautiful monstrosity is on the menu for a limited time for International Burger Day.

Their burger features tender lamb koftas, cushy buns, hummus, zhoug, shifka, tomato, onions and amba. This bad boy beats a takeaway kebab any day.
