Westfield in Chatswood has a new burger joint: Royal Stacks. That name might not mean much to Sydneysiders, admittedly, but trust us when we tell you this news should make you very excited. The brainchild of burger nerd Dani Zeini (who's the same guy behind Melbourne's awesome American-themed eatery Grand Trailer Park Taverna, not to mention Royal Stacks venues in Brunswick and the CBD. Now, after years spent lording over your hungry neighbours south of the border, Zeini has brought his mouth-watering buns to NSW.
Royal Stacks has a fairly simple menu — by which we mean burgers, and plenty of 'em. Choices range from the classic Single Stack featuring a beef patty, tomato, lettuce, pickles, cheddar and special sauce, to more extravagant options such as the Prince Harry, which adds horseradish, shallots and gherkin mayo, and The King, which throws a gigantic mac 'n' cheese croquette into the mix.
They've also got you sorted when it comes to dessert, serving frozen custard in a variety of flavours – think Ferrero Rocher, cookie dough and Nutella swirl, to name but a few.
"I've been obsessed with US burger culture for several years," said Zeini. "Bringing this kind of culture to Australia but focusing on ethically and locally sourced ingredients is something I've always been excited about."
