Riddle me this? What do you call a great burger haut in Brisbane CBD? Well none other than Miss Kay's of course. The creative brainchild of events-gurus turned restaurant owners Justin Kong and Matt Lee, Miss Kay's provides the perfect American-esk burger joint that will have all foodies in a fluster. Teamed with head chef Jessica Jackson (formally of Alfred and Constance), Miss Kay's is sure to become a staple for city workers and tourists alike.
I had the pleasure of heading to Miss Kay's with a friend from the UK to curb my hunger with a calorie laden fiesta of burgers and fries. Miss Kay's reminded me of some of the gourmet burger houses of London, and aided well in having my friend and I reminisce on our indulgent food escapades of the European city. Never the less we had to see what all the fuss was about.

The menu at Miss Kay's has evolved in its introductory year to include breakfast, not your oats and almond milk that's for sure, but decadent items such as the Triple B Burger and Fried Chicken with Waffles. Unfortunately I have yet to try the breakfast menu, but I can only imagine that many of the items will one day be my hangover cure.
When it comes to their speciality, burgers, Miss Kay's doesn't fall short. They provide diners with a great selection, as well as not forgetting the vegetarian demographic. Their Cheeseburger and Mac Daddy burgers were selected for consumption along with a side of seasoned fries and Krispy Fried Wings.

Once your order is placed it takes about 15 to 20 minutes to come out, so what better way to pass the time than with a nice cold cider or ale from the bar. As you sip on your beverage you will notice that the restaurant has a great look and feel along with good customer service.
The meals came out together with all at once. The burgers are as you would expect, juicy, saucy and meaty - the perfect trifecta. The chips were crunchy on the outside and fluffy in the inside and seasoned perfectly. The fried Krispy Wings were a great addition and priced affordably (6 wings for $7).
My only suggestion for the venue is that there needs to be some more condiments. Perhaps the special Miss Kay's sauce for the wings and I am thinking American mustard, Tabasco, Habanero Sauce and crowd favourite ketchup, malt vinegar and mayonnaise. That said this may have occurred since my last visit, which in that case I have no criticism.
Good wings, check, delicious beverages, check, outrageous and tasty burgers, check. Miss Kay's ticks a lot of boxes, do yourself a favour and see what all the fuss is about. You won't be disappointed.
