The best thing on the menu at Bar Luca has long been their mouth-watering burgers. You know it. We know it. And, evidently, so do they. Because this week they opened BL Burgers, the no-frills Bar Luca takeaway spinoff you've been waiting for.

The team at Oxford Street's brand new BL Burgers serve the same selection of burgers as they do at Bar Luca. That includes the Blame Canada, a mountainous concoction of a wagyu beef patty, maple-glazed streaky bacon, American cheddar, poutine and maple aioli that was recently named the best burger in Sydney by The Fatties Burger Appreciation Society. Other creations include a chicken karaage number with wasabi aioli, pickled veggies, coriander and coral lettuce, and a vegetarian option made with chickpea, sweet potato and spiced yoghurt, as well as a weekly special. Extras and sides include fried chicken, a fried cheese patty and shoestring fries with aioli.

Primarily a takeout joint, seating in the space is minimal, with narrow benches along two walls. One wall features the menu, while the other boasts an enormous, burger-inspired mural by local artist Brent Smith.

Find BL Burgers at 1/151 Oxford Street, Darlinghurst. For more information visit or follow them on Facebook and Instagram.
