Burger lovers haven’t been forgotten, with the unveiling of the ‘Beast Burger’ an adaptation of the ‘Double Beast Burger’ by Bankstown Sports Club executive chef, Helmut Gundendorfer.
Mr Gundendorfer, who has been head chef at the Club for 17 years, said the Beast Burger was created for Bankstown Bites.
“We have given our members an early taste-test to see how popular it will be and indications are it is a hit,” Mr Gundendorfer said.
“It’s got a soft milk bun, the finest hormone-free mince patty from Tasmania, smoky bacon, a double layer of cheddar cheese, tomato, lettuce and my secret sauce.”
When developing the ‘burgers of all burgers’, Mr Gundendorfer boasted he created the ‘Beast’ with the whole community in mind.
“I wanted to bring everyone together by making a burger that was really juicy and tasty and wasn’t aimed at a particular culture. I think people will also try it because it’s quite a challenge to get through because of its size,” he said.
While Bankstown Sports Club is not a stranger to supporting the annual Bankstown Bites Food Festival, it is the first time it will be featuring and flipping burgers on the grill.
“The Festival gives us an opportunity to showcase the quality food we produce and we’re looking forward to it.”
Administrator, Richard Colley, said while the Beast Burger will be a highlight of this year’s Bites, there will also be a variety of other different foods being dished up by local restaurants, cafes and eateries, and 25 pop-up stalls.
“And, there will be 20 food tours on offer, so it will certainly be possible to eat your way around the world,” Mr Colley said.
“There’s Turkish gozleme, Korean-Mexican tacos, Asian dumplings, Japanese gyoza, Spanish Paella, Hungarian beef goulash, German sausages, Egyptian koshari, Hawaiian shrimp, American-style corn pockets, chicken wings and ice-cream Sundays, French sweet and savoury crepes. You name it, it’s most likely on the menu.”
Bankstown Bites will be held on Saturday 29 July at Olympic Parade, Bankstown, from 10am-4pm. For more information, visit cb.city/bankstownbites.
