One of Melbourne's cult burger heroes is headed across state lines. Master purveyors of awesome, unpretentious, American-style hamburgers, Huxtaburger is firing up its grill at Harpoon Harry in Surry Hills for one weekend only. Expect queues. Big ones.
The pop-up Huxtaburger will be flipping wagyu patties from 5–10pm on Saturday, July 25 and again the same time on Sunday. Hungry carnivores will be able to choose from a number of different varities including the classic Huxtaburger (beef patty with mustard, mayo, tomato sauce, tomato, cheese, lettuce and pickles), the Denise (regular huxtaburger with jalapeno and sriracha mayo) and the Clair (southern fried chicken with slaw and mayo), while the Sondra (tofu burger with sesame mayo) means there's an option for vegetarians as well. They'll also be serving up crinkle cut chipotle chips and plenty of cold, cold beer.
The pop-up cook-out will also double as the launch party for head chef Daniel Wilson's new book, The Huxtaburger Book: The Art & Science of the Perfect Burger. 'Perfect' is a pretty bold claim, but frankly we'll be too busy licking our fingers and lining up for seconds to argue with him. Wilson will be on hand in case you want to pick up a signed copy, in either ink or tomato sauce.
