The Burger Block

Fish burgers are completely underrated if (and it's a big if) they are done well. Offering Asian fusion burgers, The Burger Block in Kew is one such place that manages to hit the mark!

Located in Kew, the venue itself is reminiscent of a small town cafe - warm, friendly, with attention to detail down to the wicker baskets containing serviettes on the tables. 

The chips were definitely a highlight  - crunchy on the outside, soft and fluffy on the inside, and smothered with a delicious seasoning. The sweet chilli Mayo is also a sauce I'd recommend not to go past! 

In terms of burgers, we tried the Eureka beef burger (beef pattie, American cheese, bacon, Spanish onion, beer battered onion rings and BBQ sauce) and the Tempua Fish burger (tempura hake fillet with cheese, lettuce, tomato, Jap Mayo). Whilst I generally like my beef pattie a bit pinker, the Eureka beef burger is an excellent choice for lovers of BBQ sauce. 

The Tempura Fish Burger was my personal favourite - the fish was crispy, the sauce tangy and the lettuce crunchy.

If you're feeling hungry, The Burger Block offers 5 levels of 'The Block Legends' - each level offering an extra layer of cheese, beef and bacon.  And if you're feeling extra brave, there are the Burger Block Challenges. First up there is the 1.5kg 'Saw' challenge - 8 layers of beef, cheese, bacon and special fusion sauce. And then there's the 3kg 'Chainsaw Massacre' challenge which definitely isn't for the faint hearted - upping it up to 16 layers of beef, cheese, bacon and secret sauce! Whilst I definitely cannot say challenge accepted - I do look forward to heading back to The Burger Block to try other burgers from their menu. 

Decor: 3/5
Food: 4/5
Service: 4/5
