Could we have found Adelaide's best chicken burger?
Nothing whets my appetite more than an amazing burger. The best thing is we are seeing more burger joints in Adelaide. One of this is Burger Foundry.

Upon entering, we are faced with a bright red wall which hangs two boards showcasing the burger menu. Another board located next to the fridge as you enter list the drinks available.

Faced with an extensive list of burgers to choose from, we decided on the "Jamaican Jerk" and "Avocado and Brie". Both were chicken burgers. We did not order a beef burger as from a previous visit, the beef was slightly too chargrilled to our liking.

If beef burgers are more your thing, I would suggest the "Rocky Mountain High" - encased with grilled beef, caramelised onions, crispy bacon, melted cheddar cheese, tomato and mesclun salad or "Texan Madness" - containing grilled beef, smoky barbecue sauce, crispy bacon, tomato salsa, jalapeno chilli, cheddar cheese, tomato and mesclun salad. Both claim to be amongst the three most popular burgers at Burger Foundry. The third is "Jamaican Jerk", which is one of the chicken burgers we ordered.

The "Jamaican Jerk" certainly did not disappoint. The burger was packed with flavor. The chicken thigh fillet was succulent and seasoned with a so called Spicy Caribbean seasoning. The mango salsa added great flavour, sweetness and texture. The tomato and mesclun greens were fresh.

The "Avocado and Brie" was still good but did not give you the craving for more as with the "Jamaican Jerk". Again, the salad was fresh and the melted Brie and avocado left a smooth texture and subtle flavour. The buns used for the burgers are slightly toasted whilst remaining nice and soft inside - perfect.

Veggie lovers do not despair as Burger Foundry also has the option of a mushroom burger served with salad and beetroot relish.

With drinks, apart from the usual offerings found in a milkbar fridge, Burger Foundry also makes milkshakes: chocolate with peanut butter milkshake, blueberry milkshake, peach milkshake and a chocolate chip milkshake.

However, if you are in a hurry, I would recommend ringing ahead to place an order. The phone rings constantly with customers placing takeaways. We were given a 25minute waiting time for our burgers to be ready. All burgers are made fresh to order. A time indication seems to be given to all customers when orders are taken and can vary depending on how busy it is.

And busy this place is during the lunch hour. There is a constant stream of people coming in; most of them picking up their takeaway.

As there are two tables for four and a small wooden bar table, the premises is not really catered for true dining in. It is more akin to a takeaway shop. Three chairs line the side of the wall for patrons waiting for their takeaway order.

Burger Foundry is a casual eatery offering a vast range of burgers. Their burgers are quite generous in serving size compared to many other burger places. They boast on using 100% Australian grain fed cattle and freshly made sauces, salsas and vegetables daily.

I cannot wait to sink my teeth into another "Jamaican Jerk". I will just have to remember to call ahead to place my order first.
