18 Dec Chuck Wagon 175
If you are a fan of American food or American pop culture then you are in for treat. Chuck Wagon is an American style burger bar specialising in American style food with a twist.
This burger bar is hard to miss with it’s larger than life sized statue of Captain America guarding the door. Once inside, you feel like you are in a comic book dream, with pages upon pages of comics and memorabilia, new and old, plastered all over the walls. “Holy burgers, Batman!” is something you would likely hear Batman’s trusted sidekick, Robin say if he was relevant anymore!
Pickle chips. Crumbed and deep fried served with house mayonnaise.
Rib bites. Prime pork rib wrapped in streaky bacon with house mayonnaise. A meat eaters dream, bacon was crispy and deliciously salty while the rib was kept moist and soft inside.
Pizza fries. Bacon, pineapple, onion and cheese finished off with their Jack Daniels barbecue sauce. The familiar pizza combination is made with a unique twist with a Jack Daniels laced barbecue sauce. Although contrasting in flavours, the mixture of salty bacon and fries with sweet pineapple and barbecue sauce surprisingly work well together.
Mexicorn. 140g beef patty with cheese, jalapeños, smashed avocado, salsa and corn on a brioche bun. Chuck Wagon have taken the festive flavours of Mexican nachos and turned it into a burger! The meat patty was thick and juicy while all the condiments were classic flavours of the well known dish.
OTT pancakes. A stack of three fluffy pancakes filled with vanilla ice cream, Nutella, fresh strawberries, finished with more Nutella, crushed nuts, whipped cream and a Ferraro chocolate.
Nutella chocolate bowl. A milk chocolate bowl coated in crushed nuts, filled with sweet Nutella mousse, Nutella sauce, whipped cream, fresh strawberries and brownie crumbs. The Nutella bowl was incredibly decadent, amazingly indulgent and extremely over the top.
Now I warn you, these desserts are not for the faint hearted and if you don’t have a big sweet tooth then these desserts are best shared with friends but as they say you only live once and treat yourself!
There is an energy at Chuck Wagon that is hard to describe, no matter where your eyes may wander, you encounter character upon character from comics spanning over many decades. Unlike many Burger bars, Chuck Wagon 175 offers full table service, it has a wide selection of American inspired foods and is a dining experience you will not forget anytime soon.
