The limited edition “Lobster Experience” at Betty’s Burgers is a perfect fit for the Darling Harbour foot traffic which catches a diverse mix of Pyrmont, Ultimo and Haymarket locals cutting through to and from work, the visiting conference and exhibition delegates of the ICC and international guests roaming the many destinations in the harbour horse shoe. So this special makes sense. It has a nice summer seafood spin to its usual menu, comes with fries and a glass of your choosing from the four wines pictured above.
It didn’t look exactly how we were led to believe, slightly flatter most likely because it was a different bun to the one in the poster, but it tasted exactly how we imagined and more. The portion of filling also differs slightly from the way one might perceive it from the poster, so you try it and decide.
It’s a great snack while on the hustle. In terms of value, I would have opted out of the meal combo instead of substituting the glass of wine for a soft drink. The Lobster roll on its own is half the experience price.
The Lobster Experience refreshes its cafe-by-day, quick bite by night routine, so we’re certainly not going to nitpick something that literally just came out a day or two ago. It’s got the makings of greatness and is just one of the rare burgers available until sold out in its network of outlets in Queensland (Chermside, Coomera, Howard Smith Wharves, indooroopilly, Newstead, Noosa, Pacific Fair, Robina, Sunshine Plaza, Surfers Paradise, Toowoomba), New South Wales (Bondi Junction, Castle Towers, Darling Harbour, Manly Wharf, Market Street, Mount Street), Victoria (Elizabeth Street, Exhibition Street, The Glen, Windsor) and South Australia‘s Rundle Street
The synchronicity of the colour scheme across its interiors, decor and packaging is reminiscent of a classic American retro diner. Portions are more compact but pack a punch in flavour.
It was hard to decide between the four concrete desserts on offer, the hazelnut doughnut was heavenly.
On the regular menu, their burgers range from $10-$15 with add-ons sitting around the $5 mark.
The friendly service and pro-active thinking that is evident during this visit is hard to overlook despite some minor mishaps not worth mentioning. Overall, nice new reason to come visit an old friend…
