FERGBURGER @ QUEENSTOWN NZ
These are the renown Fergburgers.
Fergburger, located at Shotover Street in Queenstown, is a favourite with tourists and locals alike - it's one of the best and cheap food in New Zealand. There's always a long queue of customers lining up to make orders and take a number. Even while we were there in the rain, customers were patiently waiting in line!
In fact, patrons have to wait twice. First queue up for about 15-20 minutes for their orders to be taken, then wait another 15-20 minutes for their orders to be served through a window opening at the front of the shop.
A TV screen at the front displays orders that are ready and it also shows how long more other orders will take to be served.
Most come and take-away as there is just many seating to cater for the big crowd of eager patrons. There are some seating indoors and a couple of tables outdoors but these are just not enough. It's easier and more fun to take-away and eat at a nearby park or at the Wakatipu lakeside.
Okay, let's have a look and see what's all the fuss is about:
This is the regular Fergburger and it's huge! It is almost 9-10 inches across and about 3-4 inches thick and yet the ingredients seems to be overflowing out.
The bun is fluffy with a thin layer of semi-crispy crust. Vegetables included are lettuce, tomatos, onions; all laid on a tomato and aioli relish. The patty is the best! It's almost half an inch thick of superb juicy and tasty pure minced beef. Bite for bite, it's the best combo that I have taken.
We ate and then yearned for more..... well, it's back to patiently and happily queueing again!
Okay, that's just a joke.
This burger has fresh Blue Cod deep-fried in beer batter which are surrounded by veggies until it looks overflowing. Dill Tartar and Aioli completes these set. The fish is really fresh and it's fishy aroma wafts out with each bite.
A good choice for non-meat lovers; for me the beefy burger is still the best!
The Fergburger Menu & Price-list:
AT NZD11-00, the regular Fergburger is a steal. It's a reasonably priced, tasty, succulent AND filling meal when compared other burgers. So, here's a Pffft! to those bland, almost tasteless, saw-dust type patties from most fast-food burger chains!
For those who want to bring memories back home, Fergburger has a range of merchandise, just pick your choice.
