Late birthday celebrations for my best friend Angela brought a group of 10 girls to the Taxpayer for burgers, cocktails and lots of catching up! We opted for a dinner session on a Friday night and it was surprisingly quiet. On the plus side, food and drinks came out swiftly after we placed our orders.
Our rainbow of cocktails!
Two women $19
One night stand $18
Money train $18
Australia II $18
Sweet potato chips $4.50
Not very attractive, but looks are deceiving! They were ever so slightly crispy on the outside, super soft on the inside and perfectly salted. A great accompaniment to the burgers!
Heidi Fleiss $14
Grilled haloumi, sauteed mushrooms, carrot, alfalfa, greens, herb mayo and sweet onion and pineapple relish
Martha Stewart $13
Grilled chicken breast with prosciutto, avocado, tomato, greens and aioli
OJ Simpson $11
Beef patty, American cheese, pickles, onions, mustard and tomato sauce
Wesley Snipes $15
Signature 200g beef patty, smoked bacon, cheese, tomato, greens, aioli and tomato relish
Everyone enjoyed the burgers but I wouldn't say they absolutely blew my mind! My Heidi Fleiss was great, but I wouldn't rush back for it specifically. The cocktails received mixed reactions, though my favourite was the Houseboat which was sprinkled with popping candy. The atmosphere was pretty relaxed and we actually enjoyed that it was not too busy because we were actually able to have decent conversations and enjoy the food.
