Charlie + Co, Sydney CBD

Writing a blog post about big, fat, juicy, delicious hamburgers is pure torture when you've embarked on a diet. But I shall suffer for my craft...


Charlie + Co can be found on the food court level of Westfield in the CBD. Along with Becase Bakery it is the last remaining venture from Chef Justin North whose restaurant empire seemed to disappear of the face of the earth a few years ago. 


I've had the famed truffle + parmesan fries here before and to be honest I wasn't a fan. They were expensive, soggy and seemed overly greasy.  I walked away feeling oily (and fat)....but I'm all for second chances.

I'm pleased to report that second time around the fries were a hit. They were still expensive at $8 a pop, but they were crispy and had good flavour. For once I could taste the earthiness of the truffles.  It's a shame however that the burgers don't come with a "side of fries" option as an $8 bowl of fries is just too big for one person...even a greedy person like me.


There are only about six burgers on the menu so I stuck with a classic - The Charlie Wagyu Burger ($16 {or forgo the special Charlie + Co "special seating area" and save $2 and go sit in the food court with everyone else}) as it comes with cheese AND pickles

Whilst expensive (are you sensing a theme here) the burger I had was good. The bun was nice and soft, but not sweet (which is a good thing in my book). I thought the patty was flavoursome but I was super chuffed that Charlie + Co offers a selection of cheeses and I was even more chuffed to see Blue Cheese on offer! Yes PLEASE!


Charlie + Co can be found at Level 5, Westfield (Cnr Pitt St Mall and Market Street),
Sydney.

  5. Yes, I hope they've improved the fries for good too - I don't eat there often enough to know though (those fries cannot be good for the waist line).

  6. It's hard to say as I've only eaten there twice...and it was A LONG time between visits.

  7. I really recommend the veggie burger at Charlie & Co - AMAZING. Also, I find that the truffle fries are SO much better at Opera Kitchen.
