Showcasing a menu that maintains the integrity of premium produce, Charlie & Co is a brilliant addition to Emporium’s distinctly cosmopolitan café court.
The chain strives to create flavoursome and juicy burgers like no other – and we think they’ve done just that.
Mighty Charlie Burger
With a rich and succulent beef pattie (made from 100% pure Australian Wagyu), the hamburger had, sandwiched between two halves of a slightly sweet and perfectly toasted artisan bun, deliciously smoked middle bacon, free range egg, melted cheddar cheese, sun ripened tomato, pickled gherkins, caramelised onions, garden leaves, aioli and Charlie’s signature tomato sauce. It was a classic burger and was absolutely delicious. We loved the generous serve and had no trouble putting it away.
Southern Belle Chicken Burger
The chicken burger was beautiful. It was an almighty burger with generous amounts of tender and flavoursome southern spiced free-range chicken breast, tangy and bold smoked chilli coleslaw, tart sun ripened tomatoes and oozy melted cheddar. Each element was precisely portioned and cooked with love.
Both the parmesan & truffle fries and the beer battered onion rings were addictively good.
The aromatic fries were beautifully crisp on the outside and fluffy on the inside.
The onion rings had us doing it Gollum style - fighting for the last ring. They were deliciously sweet, soft, sticky and encased by cripsy batter.
And guess what? They serve excellent coffee too.
A testament to using ingredients that are of the highest quality and expertly judged fillings, Charlie & Co burgers are a winner.
