Moo Burgers, Crows Nest

The first Moo Burgers I went to was at Newtown. The atmosphere was fun yet chilled. I still feel this at the Crows Nest restaurant but it seems like whenever we go we are only one of a couple of tables that are occupied. So it feels a little bit more chilled (and slightly quiet)... Perhaps we're not going at the right time? 


Since the last time I went, the menu has been reprinted on translucent plastic which makes it a bit difficult to read even though it may feel nicer. The menu acts like a place mat when you've finished ordering from it. Food is to be ordered at the counter and the Moo staff bring it out to you.  

Wall of Deluxe Moo double decker eaters
The Deluxe Moo double decker consists of two beef patties, cheddar cheese, mozzarella, bacon, egg, grilled onions, pineapple, beetroot, tomato, mixed leaf lettuce, home-made mayonnaise & tomato relish. It's no wonder your picture gets taken and stuck on the wall if you successfully eat this beast of a burger! 

Big Moo, $16.50
My partner and I both order the Big Moo like we always do because it satisfies any possible burger cravings that you had prior. Even though the burgers are slightly more expensive than those at Grill'd, I enjoy Moo Burgers much more because the fillings are so much more generous and tasty! The beef pattie is 100% Australian Angus pure natural beef and cooked well as it retains its juices and flavours. The sourdough buns are warm and buttered which means it doesn't taste like dry toast. The free range bacon isn't too fatty and gives great smokiness. The free range egg is still runny, allowing the yoke to become another sauce! I am a huge fan of pineapple and beetroot on burgers, so this addition makes any burger go from being good to great! We ordered extra caramelised onions and this tasted great with the pattie. The combination of home-made mayonnaise and tomato relish tied the whole burger together. 

Basket of chunky home-style chips, $7.00
If you're having a huge burger like the Big Moo I probably won't recommend you ordering a basket of chips as well, even if it is to share! Eating the Big Moo really takes it out of you - you get so full! But it's quite hard to resist Moo Burgers' chips as they're very crispy on the outside and fluffy inside. They certainly know how to make chips! I am yet to try their Cheesy Bacon Chips - chips topped with melted Egmont cheese and bacon pieces. Perhaps I'll leave that for when I plan to run a marathon the next day. 

Burger places are great because it's informal and you can chow down a burger without having to be polite about the mess you've made in the process. Moo Burgers are licensed  so it's a great dinner suggestion for those who want to eat, drink and be merry! Don't forget to try their Moo Shakes if you have a chance - who doesn't like Crunchie bars, Tim Tams, Maltesers, Kit Kats or Snickers blended into their milkshake?
