If you've been to Eggslut in the States, you'll understand the hype. Lines that snake around LA's Grand Central Market — or Las Vegas's Cosmopolitan — from the moment the stores start frying up eggy burgers and jars of 'slut' (coddled eggs with potato). Now, the hype is heading Down Under, with founder Alvin Cailan coming to Sydney for a one-day burger festival.

Cailan (who also hosts The Burger Show) is teaming up with Aussie burger-finding app The Burger Collective for The Burger Expo, which will take over Moore Park's Entertainment Quarter on Sunday, August 11. Six of Australia's top burger makers will be collaborating with Cailan to make one-off meaty sangas — that'll only be available at the expo.

Expect stacked creations from Loaded by BL, a possible fried chook option from Penrith's Burger Head and juicy a beef number from Mondaze in Brisbane. Sydney's Happy Ending Burger and Burger Point and Melbourne's Monroe's will also be plating up limited-edition numbers on the day. And if Cailan's penchant for eggs is anything to go by, expect to find many fried, scrambled and coddled ones between your burger buns on the day.

As well as savoury burgers, there'll also be gelato-stuffed buns from Cremeria de Luca, barefoot lawn bowls, lots of chilli sauce from Tabasco, live music and burger masterclasses. And, best of all, tickets are just $12 — or $6 if you snag 'em early.

The Burger Expo has two sessions: midday–4pm and 5–9pm.
