Scoresby may seem like an unconventional place to set up a business such as Stanley Burgers, but it was owner, Farid Magdy's, desire to bring a fresh breath of innovation to the area that led to his choice in venue. Previously a takeaway shop that was in deep need of some TLC, Scoresby locals can now enjoy a fun, uniquely modern venue with a mouth-watering menu and stunning fit out.
Inspired by Magdy's memories of eating a delicious burger when he was on Stanley beach in his homeland of Alexandria, Egypt, the menu and the interior design seek to transport you to various beaches around the world. Each burger on offer has been carefully crafted to encapsulate the taste of a city within its buns.
We loved the vegan Ageeba burger which features housemade Egyptian falafel, hummus, beetroot jam, cucumber and lettuce. For something heartier, do not go past the Mykonos burger – a generous burger encasing Souvlaki chicken or lamb, tzatziki, lettuce and onion. Just yum!
It’s not only the burger options that take you to another city - even the sides offer international flavours. We loved the Escobar Fries with house-made chilli con carne, manchego cheese, guac and sour cream.
Stanley Burgers is a neighbourhood-friendly and inviting venue, suitable for families, tradies and groups alike and provides a much needed oasis in the suburban area of Scoresby. With such a worldly menu on offer, Magdy's hope is that no matter where in the world you're from, you'll be at home, with a burger in hand, at Stanley Burgers.
