Burger 10 is one of the newish players in the local burger scene. Like Grill’d, they target consumers looking for a healthier option (grass-fed beef, grilled burgers) with a unique spin: internationally inspired flavours (reminded me of my beloved Bembo’s).
We decided to try it because they do gluten-free buns and the day we stopped by to buy a takeaway serve of chips, the friendly guy behind the register explained us which options could be made gluten-free by swapping the bun.
We ordered a couple of sides to share: a serve of potato chips and salad… sort of… served underneath the caramelised smoked BBQ glazed pork belly. Chips were hot and crispy and the serve was generous. On every table there’s a set of condiments that include Dijon and wholegrain mustard, salt, ketchup and 4 types of Tabasco sauce (can I suggest mayo?). The pork belly was just okay. I think the sauce was the main culprit.

Alvaro and I shared the classic beef burger (grass fed beef patty, tomato chutney, beetroot, pickled cucumber, rocket leaves and mayo) and the smoked chicken thigh burger (thyme and lemon scented smoked chicken thigh fillet, beetroot, rocket and fennel aioli). I liked the chicken better, as the beef patty was not very juicy.

Gladys had the lamb burger (lamb, oregano, mint and feta cheese patty, charred eggplant purée, red capsicum, Spanish onion, kalamata olives and cucumber tzatziki), also nice but not very juicy.

Feeling like we could fit in a little something else, we ordered the Cajun spiced smoked crispy potato with bacon & cheese sauce, but without the cheese sauce. For some reason I thought it would be potato chunks and soft fatty bacon, but it was the same potato chips with Cajun seasoning and crispy strips of almost burnt bacon. I guess the cheese sauce makes a big difference, so my bad for suggesting having it dairy-free.
