I’m not really a burger person – I always feel like no matter how many fancy ingredients you throw into a burger there’s a limit to how good it can get. In the end it’s just bread, patty, veggies and sauce. After hearing that this is the best burger place in Adelaide and seeing so many photos of their soft serve, it was time I paid a visit to Bread & Bone on the very hip Peel St.
Burgers are on the pricey side where it’s around the $20 mark – unless you get the cheeseburger at $12.50 or a healthy quinoa and lentil burger at $14.50. I decided on the B&B burger that had a beef patty and was layered with melted cheese, smoked bacon, tomato, lettuce, caramelised onion, pickle and drizzled with sauce and kewpie. On first bite it just reminded of a really good Hungry Jacks whopper and it mainly tasted of meat. Sadly I couldn’t taste much of the kewpie and I love kewpie mayo :(

D grabbed The 300 and really enjoyed his 300g beef patty with double cheese, pickled onion, special sauce, onion rings and mustard.

I’ve been eyeing the salted peanut brittle soft serve serve for a really long time on social media – it looks so darn pretty. A swirl of thick yet soft soft serve with sweet caramel tones which went really well with the fresh crunch of caramelised popcorn. I may just be nit picking but I felt there was a creaminess and smoothness missing in the soft serve texture. Again, D loved this so it may be just be me.

This is a good place to catch up with lots of young waiters and a slight hipster vibe. Service is very attentive and nice but felt a bit awkward to have waiters hovering to see if you have finished eating to whisk your plate away (I’m a slow eater). Food in the end was average for me but then again I am not a burger fan so this may sit better with you than me. D enjoyed this place so that could be you too!
