Burger 10, Glebe


Eighteen months since my first vis­it to Burger 10 dur­ing their 2nd birth­day pro­mo­tion, T’s pen­chant for a good bur­ger in Glebe saw us return­ing. Burger 10 is the bur­ger joint with ten bur­gers rep­res­ent­ing 10 coun­tries around the world. I’d tried their Chinese Pork and Prawns Burger on my first vis­it.


This time, I dabble in Italy with the Smoked Chicken Thigh Burger ($11.50) with a tra­di­tion­al focac­cia bun, thyme and lem­on scen­ted smoked chick­en thigh fil­let, beet­root, rock­et and fen­nel aioli.


I enjoyed this bur­ger immensely. The chick­en thigh was deli­ciously juicy and tender with a good smokey fla­vour, while its car­a­mel­ised tangy sauces mixed well with the slight sharp­ness from the fen­nel aioli and rock­et and the earthy sweet­ness from the beet­root. The rock­et and beet­root also added wel­come fresh­ness and crunch, while the focac­cia was lightly toasted so as to retain its pil­lowy soft­ness.


N goes the Morocco-inspired Chicken Steak Burger ($11.90) with a clas­sic bur­ger bun, cher­moula spiced chick­en breast, roas­ted pump­kin, tomato rel­ish, min­ted yoghurt coleslaw, and harissa mayo. Being some­what of a flex­it­ari­an, N found the chick­en a touch dry and the over­all bur­ger lack­ing fresh greens to cut through the rich­ness of the spiced chick­en and gen­er­ous slath­er­ing of mayo.


And T goes for the American Classic Beef Burger ($10.00) with a clas­sic bur­ger bun, grass fed beef pat­tie, tomato chut­ney, beet­root, pickled cucum­ber, rock­et leaves and mayo. He enjoyed the optim­al ratio between its com­pon­ents: the size of the bun as a vehicle, the ten­der­ness of the beef pat­tie, the fresh­ness of the rock­et leaves and beet­root, and the acid­ity from the pickled cucum­ber and tomato chut­ney.

My first vis­it saw us wait­ing over thirty minutes for our bur­gers due to a large takeaway order ahead of us. This second vis­it saw the same thing hap­pen. It’s great that their takeaway busi­ness thriv­ing, but it doesn’t encour­age dine-in cus­tom­ers to return when there are only two tables filled in an oth­er­wise empty res­taur­ant. So, Burger 10 does some pretty decent bur­gers, but be pre­pared to wait.

Burger 10 is loc­ated at 39 Glebe Point Rd, Glebe NSW 2037.
