Lord of the Fries is a healthy burger joint started by Mandy and Mark in Melbourne in 2004 which has since become a local favourite. What started out as a truck on the road is now proudly serving burgers at 8 outlets in Melbourne. Sydney was next up. A new outlet has opened on George street in Sydney CBD offering the same healthy burgers, delicious fries and sauces. Don't be fooled by the name, Lord of the Fries prides itself on inexpensive, healthy, yet deliciously mouth watering fresh burgers without the guilt.
The burgers come in white and wholemeal bread (thumbs up). The fries can be classic or sweet potato. The burgers are all vegetarian with vegan options also available characterized by freshly baked bread, soy nuggets high in protein, cooked fresh and served fresh. Try their Spicy burger with jalapenos or Guru burger for something fancy. You can look at their menu here.
If you thought this was all they have to offer, wait till you hear all about their internationally inspired sauces. Like the Belgian, Indian or Parisian classic sauce, or you could try their Deluxe range, be it African or Italian, or just the sauce of the month. They once had an Obama sauce in the honour of President Obama.
You'll find healthy fries and tantalizing sauces that are guilt free. And if all this is not enough to motivate you, check out their Monday to Wednesday specials that include $3 mini burgers on Monday, 2 for 1 fries on Tuesdays and Hump Hay half price hotdogs.
It's not for nothing that Lord of the Fries has won titles like 'Best Vegetarian Restaurant' and 'Best Hot Chips in Melbourne'. Being open till late is also an advantage. They don't have any seating so be sure that you have a place to go to after you get your take away.
You can also follow all the action on their facebook page.
I wonder why you would use the quote "Don't be fooled by the name, Lord of the Fries prides itself on inexpensive, healthy, yet deliciously mouth watering fresh burgers without the guilt. " Guilty about what? Guilty about eating no meat? Guilty about eating fried food? Guilty that you are eating a burger? Guilty about the calories the majority of the population eat every day? Reading the article, its clearly a vegetarian burger place, so why use the word guilt?
I am at a loss.
Hi Linda - The name, Lord of the fries struck me as a joint selling unhealthy fries. When I went there I read about their healthy way of making fries including the oil used, not being too crunchy and of course their sweet potato options that impressed me. Although it is a vegetarian burger place, it's not evident from the name.
