Burger essentials: Cheeseburger, fries and a milkshake from Nordburger

Since it opened, I’ve kept hearing rave reviews about Nordburger. So the first chance I had to gather a bunch of friends to go, naturally I jumped at the opportunity.

Thankfully the day I had arranged to visit had fantastic weather, with the sun shining and providing just enough warmth to make it perfect for sitting outdoors. Making the most of this, we decided to have our lunch in the nearby park, so we got our burgers to go and enjoyed the sunshine.

I chose to keep things simple for my first Nordburger experience, selecting a cheeseburger from the menu. However, tempted by the sides and beverages on offer, I also ended up ordering crinkle cut fries and a pretzel milkshake (yes, you read that right).

All wrapped up: Nordburger to go

The cheeseburger was, simply put, superb. I’ve heard the notion that if a burger venue can’t get their cheeseburger right, you should steer clear. I’ll put it like this, using that theory, I will be revisiting Nordburger soon. With a traditional cheeseburger taste, the sauces and not-too-sweet burger bun mixed to make an enjoyable meal.

The fries were crisp and crunchy, thickly cut without being chunky, and not too oily. I’d recommend getting the dipping sauce as it was a winner all around. Among my friends, at least, the jury is still out on the chipotle fries.

As for the pretzel milkshake, it was great. Nordburger has managed to recreate the slightly salty taste of a pretzel, but mixed with a sweet twist. You would be right to consider this similar to a salted caramel flavour. While it is not exactly the same in taste, it could be considered a ‘start point’ when looking to explain the flavour. (Feel free to suggest a better comparison in the comments.)

All in all, I really enjoyed my Nordburger meal, and I can’t wait to go back – if only there weren’t so many other great places around Adelaide to visit!

That’s all from me, enjoy!

  1. Hi Louis,

    I've added a new feature so you can publish your blog posts on Urbanspoon yourself without having to wait for us to do it! Here's how it works:

    – Make sure you're signed into Urbanspoon.
    – Go to your Urbanspoon blog page (not your user profile):
    – Click “Edit blog settings”.
    – In the Pending Posts section, click “Edit and publish my pending posts”.
    – Then, enter the “snippet” text, verify the date and URL, and press Publish.

    Please make sure that:
    – The URL should be the permalink to the blog post (not the blog home page, a category page, a post preview, or a service like feedproxy).
    – The snippet should be 2-3 sentences (quoted from your blog post) that gives an idea of what's in the post.
    – The snippet should NOT include bylines, dates, address info, captions, tags, HTML code, etc.

    Note: there may be a delay of 1-2 hours after you post on your blog until our system detects the post.

    We'll give you one week to do it yourself, then it'll go into our queue to publish.

    Thank you for all of your contributions, and let me know if you have any questions.

    Best regards,
