If you haven’t already noticed, the humble hamburger has received a facelift in recent years.
Traditional burger ingredients and flavours have been thrown out the window, making way for exciting new concoctions that will have your mouth-watering. See for yourself at one of the two new burger joints that have opened in Penrith recently.
Stepping into the recently opened Big Poppa’s Burgers is like stepping into a burger restaurant in America. That’s exactly how owners, brother and sister duo, Chris and Nyome O’Shea want you to feel. Their Brooklyn themed restaurant located on High St even features a very special rooftop bar, the only one of its kind in Penrith.
The menu boasts a vast array of burgers, loaded shakes, desserts, cocktails and more but we recommend starting with their signature burger the ‘Big Poppa’ before making your way down their extensive menu. This burger includes four pieces of Wagyu Beef, four pieces of Crispy Maple Bacon, four slices of American cheese and is topped with onion and juicy sauce.
For traditional burgers with a modern twist, look no further than Burger Head which opened last month in nearby Henry St. Owners Richard Borg and Josh DeLuca, both Penrith locals, boast an impressive pedigree having worked as chefs at Quay and Momofuku Seiobo before following their dreams and returning home to Penrith.
Cheeseburgers are taken to a whole new level here with their signature burger featuring a smashed beef patty topped with pickles and a sweet caramelised crust, American cheese and a creamy secret sauce in a lightly toasted milk bun. For something different, try the Shroom and Kale burger– the combination of the smoked mushrooms and kale with the daikon cabbage slaw will have you questioning the need to ever eat meat again.
