Down the ‘Rabbit Hole’ – Sydney


We’re back, and the first post on the agenda is burgers! Have not made a restaurant review in a while – this time we head to Rabbit Hole – Bar and Dining. Their Wagyu Beef Burger was named one of the world’s best burgers, so it immediately tickled my curiosity. Down a flight of stairs, you arrive at a small bar surrounded by tables and cushioned seating. For our visit, we decided to sit at their second bar at the back, amongst even more cushions. I have to add though, that this was actually my third attempt at catching the burger. The first time was for a friend’s birthday dinner, we arrived just after 8pm and was told that the kitchen closed upon a large group just entering before us. We were really disappointed, especially because we were anticipating one of the best burger in the world. The second time I tried, I was with a friend and we were about to see Aung San Suu Kyi at the Opera House (exciting, I know!), and we arrived for a late lunch at 3pm. Unfortunately, their kitchen had also just closed. Just my luck. I was really beginning to doubt whether I was ever meant to try this burger. Third time lucky right? I went with Edwina, half thinking that we would be thrown out once again because their kitchen evaporated this time, but fortunately, everything went smoothly.

Once we were seated, a friendly waitress took our order (no need to even look at the menu); we both ordered the Wagyu Beef Burger with a side of Truffle and Parmesan Chips. It normally comes with regular chips, but for an extra $2 you can get truffle and parmesan! Totally worth it. Seriously, it might be too early to say, but I have found a life long partner inside those thrice cooked chips. Too early and too insane. I don’t even care. Their truffle and parmesan chips, are definitely the best chips I have ever had. So crispy and tasty. I am going to stop now before I scare you guys away.

The burger was certainly outstanding, in that it was a combination of some of my favourite things – brie, house made tomato relish and aioli, and soft, juicy wagyu beef. There are a few places that claim to serve wagyu beef in their burgers, but they end up tasting like a regular patty because they are overcooked; this was definitely not the case with these guys. Along with the burger and chips, there is a side of pickled vegetables – more than enough for a very filling lunch.

There is no doubt that I will venture down here again, and perhaps try some other items on their menu. Meanwhile, I will continue to rave about their truffle chips to anyone who will listen. Seriously so good guys! I still think about the one chip I left behind because I was too full. I shed a tear every time.
