Looking for a place to grab a bite in Woolloomooloo that's not super fancy? Up until now, your only option has been Harry's Cafe de Wheels, but it looks like that's finally about to change. Opening this Monday, March 14 on Cowper Wharf Roadway, right across the street from Harry's famous pie cart, Smashed Burger is your casual alternative to the area's high-end dining scene, and the latest in a string of new Sydney burger joints we can't wait to try.

The meaty menu at Smashed includes a beef brisket burger made with beetroot, lettuce, tomato, bacon, swiss cheese and aioli mustard; a chicken burger with lettuce, tomato, bacon, swiss cheese, mayo and avocado aioli; a lamb burger with lettuce, tomato, bacon and yoghurt; and an Asian-style pork burger with slaw, pineapple, aioli and  apple relish. The meats are put through a tenderiser (much like any meat patty), slow-roasted for 12 hours an then 'smashed' a flat-top griddle for optimum noms.

The carb-conscious can get their burger in a bowl, sans bun — although, realistically, we're not sure how much healthier that makes it. Especially if you're washing it down with one of their insane sounding thick shakes, with names like Mean Bean, Smashed Fudge Brownie and Toffee Choc Smash.

A take-out only establishment, Smashed Burger will be open from 7am to late seven days a week. Find them at Shop 2, 57 Cowper Wharf Roadway, Woolloomooloo. For more information, check them out on Facebook.
