Eat the night away with fabulous burgers
Eggslut's Alvin Cailan is teaming up with some of Sydney's best burger chefs for a one-off fest. Perhaps you have been to Eggslut in the States, and if so, you'll understand the iconic features of this event! Once they start frying up egg burgers and jars of coddled eggs with potatoes (called slut) the crowd goes wild!
Now, the hype is heading Down Under, with founder Alvin Cailan coming to Sydney for a one-day burger festival. Experience this never before event, where Alvin makes up burgers from your favourite six burger establishment in Sydney.
This will start on 11th August 2019 at Moore Park Entertainment Centre Show ring, The Market Canopy. Session one is from 12.00 noon to 4.00 pm and Session two is from 5.00 pm to 9.00 pm.
Cailan hosts The Burger Show and is teaming up with Aussie burger-finding app The Burger Collective for The Burger Expo. This is going to take over Moore Park's Entertainment Quarter and the six top burger makers will be making one-off meaty sangas.
All these will be inventing some limited-edition burgers on the day. And if Cailan's love for eggs is anything to go by, expect to find a lot of fried, scrambled and even poached ones somewhere in your burger buns on the day.
Restaurants will be creating special burger buns which you can see here. e.g. Burger Head has pretzel buns, Emmy sauce, smashed beef patty, white cheddar cheese and caramelised onion.
As well as savoury burgers, there will also be:
Gelato-stuffed buns from Cremeria de Luca
Barefoot lawn bowls with lots of chilli sauce from Tabasco
Live music and burger masterclasses
The best thing of all is the tickets are just $12 or $6 if you buy them really early!
OTHER THINGS In addition to the food, The Burger Expo will host various areas for event-goers to enjoy. These include a Tabasco tent, lawn bowls area, interactive gaming area, Burger games and masterclasses.
There will also be live music which will play all day and special guests will soon be announced.
