Nothing really happens in North Sydney. The most exiting part of the day would be to successfully avoid those charity workers at Elizabeth Plaza on Mount Street standing strategically at the top of the hill.

Five Points is quickly changing that now. Lunch time cannot come any sooner. This New York neighbourhood inspired cafe offers a range of beef, chicken and vegetarian burgers, beer battered chips, slaw and milkshakes.

It was 11.40am and there was already people being served and a 10-man line. By the time I received my order 15 minutes later, the line was at two dozen with non-committed foodies turning back.

BRONX $12.50

This combination is pretty much the perfect beef burger for me. All of the ingredients and condiments are common but in the right proportion. The beef patty was charred around the edges almost crispy (I liked that) whilst still moist and medium inside without being too oily. The bacon added texture whilst the cheese speaks for itself. It’s hard to explain all of the flavours and textures coming through, it is definitely an experience. The portion is quite large with the chips, I was stuffed . You can always add a patty for $3 extra.

BEER BATTERED CHIPS $4

Five Points beer battered chipsThese are the best chunky chips I have had in a while and are worth the $4. The batter is perfect, light and full of flavour from the beer. The inside is so smooth almost like mash potato.

UPDATE MANHATTAN $10 + $3 EXTRA PATTY

Same as The Bronx above without the bacon and onion jam. Double is definitely more satisfying and of course good if you need extra protein. Other a double Bronx is also an option:p

Conclusion

Really one of the best burgers in Sydney, I can’t wait to try the other burgers. The Bronx burger is a classic perfectly executed with flair and the chips were light crispy little pockets of comforting mash. They will open for dinner soon. Expect this place to be packed for the months to come.

Would I go again?

YES
