Pearl’s Diner [Round 2]

Burger Theory needs no introduction – starting out as a humble food truck named Pearl, driving around Adelaide making their burgers accessible to suburban and city dwellers which began a food truck revolution. Now 2 years later they have opened 2 restaurants with the more recently Burger Theory restaurant near Rundle St.

I NEVER choose the vegetarian option but the promise of mushrooms won me over. I actually asked if they could put a meat patty in the vegetarian burger but alas they said no :( Thick, earthy mushrooms with melted oozy cheese and a good squeeze of truck sauce covering the mushrooms, lettuce and tomatoes. After the first bite I actually didn’t care that there was no meat, mushroom life forever! Sadly the chips were luke warm and not too flash but I am loving the super cute and happy packaging paper.

Fast forward 10 minutes – C and I clutching our food babies as we slowly waddle our way out. In hindsight maybe a waffle each was too much. The waffles had a crispy outing with a crumbly biscuity interior – I was actually expecting it to be fluffy but damn, that’s some good waffle. Warm Belgium chocolate coated each bite with a scoop of vanilla seeds flecked icecream *salivates all over keyboard*.

The maple syrup gave the waffle a slight sweetness and was more subtle in taste compared to the chocolate waffle.

I’m actually not part of the burger joint excitement that has taken Adelaide by storm – usually I go to a place and never return or if I do I get bored. The guys at Burger Theory know how to make a mean tasting burger – 2 years later and I’m still back!

    I love a good burger and clearly this one looks good! Besides burgers, waffles are a must after a savory meal :P

      Haha so true but sometimes it’s super hard to fit in dessert after a filling meal – one must always try :D
