Red Hill Burger

Why? Why? Why no-one blogs burgers anymore? It's a travesty! Here is our most recent creation, Maryanne cooked and I composed. Not bad.

Captains Mountain burger - sometimes simple is best

This blog is a bit out of sequence but couldn't leave it undone from our big move. Did someone say Wallyworld? Most of the way through a big day of driving from Coonabarabran, the clan needed to refuel somewhere between Goondoowindi and Toowoomba. The Captains Mountain roadhouse was the destination of choice and provided a classic Queensland burger. I don't know for sure but I think the BBQ sauce thing is pretty dominant here, you need to ask for tomato sauce. This burger was pretty simple but did not disappoint. Even the flies liked it.

Glovey would be good to have a pin on the google map:

Big Chief Burger - Coolangatta

Here is possibly the best burger on Goldy (The Gold Coast). You will find it in Cooly (Coolangatta). I had the Big Chief works burger but with vege patty instead of the beef. They said they had never done this before but in fairness I did have rump steak for dinner the night before at the Cooly surf club.

As you would expect in Queensland the works burger comes with the works including pineapple. You will find it here.

No Nostalgia

Joeleeee’s surprise duck downunder prompted the TB Crew (minus other globe trotter G-Lovey) to cancel all appointments and b-line to the Torqs without even checking the forecast. On this sparkling early Spring day, leaving the fate of conditions in Dave’s capable hands was a wise move as he delivered classic mid-tide, 2-2.5 footers. Even Luca danced an impromptu jig to the big D involving lots of kicking and throwing of sand.

With Zombie taking first kid shift, Dubs and I sprinted out the back leaving nearly enough white water wake behind us for the gromms to peddle. Maybe not the sharpest move on my part given my lack of surf fitness (surfing Manhattan subways only strengthens one’s will), but after a sufficient rest, there were plenty of curling lefties to be had for all. Rotating Luca shifts turned out to be more than manageable and everyone managed to attain a quality level of knackeredness, which of course sparked the merge for a burge….

Sitting in the sun outside Angry Bald Guy café munching on the tropical beef burger (sans bacon as Dubs discovered) was a most excellent way to wrap up the day and without becoming too nostaligic… I can’t wait for more.

Very Tasty Indeed.

Swiss Alps Burger

When you think Switzerland, you think Victorinox army knives, mountains, choccy, cuckoo clocks and a stubborn monetary policy that makes you carry francs everywhere, not burgers. Based on a sample size of one, I can now confirm that the swiss should stick to fondue and give the burgers a miss. Ben, Jane and I try the burger with the lot at a restaurant in picturesque Grindelwald. Ben decides to eat his finger instead cause it tastes better. No, it was a fine burger after a hike but, you guessed it, just not tasty. The euro burger hunt continues. Dublin next i think.


So it isn't my own surf that I'm writing about but the location makes it bloggable. Munich, not too close to the sea, no chance of a surf surely? So what are those bikes doing in the street with bloody board carriers strapped on them? The answer is the Isar River which flows like a bastard all year round (controlled by some upstream hydro plant) to give the world's most famous standing wave. I think we saw it in Step into Liquid or some surf flick yeah? Really funny to watch up close with it all being taken very seriously. Each rider lines up and waits his/her turn (saw 2 ladies there the second day) then jumps out onto the wave already standing, you drift/cut back and forth for an unspoken but carefully respected amount of time (about 20seconds) then you fall off the back and paddle to the edge. Didn't have a wetsuit or a board and not much chance to hire one in Munich but maybe next time i'll be a bit more organised. Note that one bloke is only in his boardies, he managed to drift over to the edge and dismount without getting wet!

Sorry aboot th' lang bide fur an update

Few quick updates from the land of kilts and bagpipes! The first is a scottish highland burger sampled with Jen Antonchuk at a temporary stall during the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. You'll note in the photo the lack of anything in the bun other than meat.... this one was never going to do well and jen's face says it all, NOT TASTY! but edible after a hard day watching shows. There's also the chance to get a deep fried haggis burger at a chippy I saw, so one day soon I'll get onto it.

Big Wednesday on the peninsula

Dub decided to have much needed day off on Wednesday. A lucky thing, as otherwise he wouldn't have witnessed this bodacious swell down at Mt Martha.

Sunday, August 12, 2007


Och aye! Hoots! What a jolly wee time we had celebrating perhaps Lockie's last surf before decamping for bonnie Scotland. Torqs turned it on for us, being windy, cold and wet. These two highland warriors made it to the beach after Dub was struck down. Worth it? It's almost always worth it. Today was no exception.

We did of course manage to get through some vegie burgers at Spooners and grommett Luca managed not to turn the gas off this time.

Finally, Lockie, a stirring tune to get you inspired for the move.

Noosa Noosa everywhere

Only worth a mention for the map pin, I score a burger with the lot from Cafe Terrace in Noosaville just off Noosa Pde around the corner from Noosa Heads. I think we chose it by dint of the fact it is one the few places up there without the word Noosa in the name. It is certainly full to the brim with fresh produce but suffers insufficient sauce-age. Fortunately that's easily rectified and makes it a solid (but messy) tasty. Anyway, who cares when you're revelling in 27 deg sunshine instead of dreary 14 deg Melbourne?

No pics of the burger but a couple at Tea Tree Bay where Zombie normally surfs i believe? What a great, near deserted beach! Highly recommended for clean blue water and a quietude well suited to beach scrabble and disc. Hopefully next time there'll be some swell :)

RZA Burger

Recent backstage interview with the RZA revealed the ultimate hippie bigger

Q: What's a RZA burger?

RZA: A RZA burger is a veggie patty with a fried egg, cheese, lettuce, pickels and all that, smashed between two delicious waffles. Spread mustard and mayo on it with a little butter and put that sh*t together.
