So I arrived to Gold Coast at the 8/8/2014 and guess what's the first meal I have when I touch down :P A local Aussie Burger Store! :D My cousin found this place from Urban Spoon, it's like our Malaysian Food Review app, Hungry Go Where. When my cousin told me he is bringing me to a burger place, I was expecting to be in an environment like any one of our Malaysian burger restaurant. So imagine my surprise when I saw the place and how quaintly decorated it was.
You know we are always thought to, "Not judge a book by it's cover?"
Well, with Hugo, you better believe it!
Because their burger are one of the best burgers I have ever tasted in my life! <3
Curious to know what other dishes they are serving?
Continue reading to find out! :)
Since I went there on my first day in Gold Coast, I couldn't help it but to return again! Loved it so much that I still crave for more of Hugo Burger. Especially the buns they use! <3 Apparently the buns they use are Sol Turkish. Don't know what that is? Just see the pictures of my burger. That's Sol Turkish!
This place is always packed with people. Especially the crowd from the beach! So expect to see lots of cute Aussie surfers! We were the only asians at the restaurant. haha. Not that I am complaining, but seeing the crowd, I can tell that it's a local favourite in the area. They were even nominated as the top 10 burger store in the Gold Coast! Some times there ain't any seats available, but fret not, the staff there are super friendly. I know you might say, Aussies in general are friendly but I really do love how attentive and friendly the owner is.
Check out the wide range of burgers and drinks they have!
Chips || $3.50 (Regular) | $7 (Large)
They also got amazingly crispy tasty fries!
I wish I could give you a better description but gosh, I don't think I have ever tasted such good fries!
I had Hugo Burger on my first visit here. I ordered this since I didn't know what to order and because it's the first thing I saw on the menu. haha.
Hugo Burger || $11.90
THIS BURGER. IS. SO. HUGE. Gosh, I couldn't finish this and even the fries! Had about 2-4 fries? And completely gave up. hehe. For the price of the burger, I felt that it's super worth it! The beef pattie, swiss cheese and caramelized onion combination is absolute mouth watering AMAZING! And the TURKISH bread they use, absolutely perfect! If only Malaysia had the bread ):
Aussie Burger || $14.90
I had the Aussie Burger at my second visit. Chose it because I was craving for eggs and I never had beetroot in my burgers before. hehe. PLUS there is BACON & BEEF Pattie in this burger! When I thought Hugo Burger was huge, this was bigger. Took me a while to finish it but I still couldn't. LOL. If I could, I won't mind sharing this with my girlfriends lo, but alas, they all are in Malaysia. So girls, if you're planing on ordering their burger, do expect a large serving :D
Lamp Tzatziki Burger || $12.90
My cousin ordered this, the bread is Panini. I didn't taste it, so I can't tell you how it is. If you're not sure on what to order, choose hugo burger if you're looking for something simple or aussie burger for something big :D
Usually I would bring my own water where ever I go and you know what? I kinda regret not ordering their MILKSHAKES. EVERY table ordered one! It was that popular! Especially their Champs Nutter-ella Thickshake!
