From today, Sydney has a tasty new burger joint with a lobster twist as Burger Liquor Lobster opens at both The London Hotel in Paddington and Manly Wharf Hotel for the summer. This new eatery and bar has moved into the pop-up spaces in both venues, taking over the reigns from Chur.

Burger Liquor Lobster serves up its own take on the traditional burger favourites – beef, chicken, pulled pork, lamb and vege (a work of art with kale and beetroot yoghurt) – in a stellar soft bun for a just $10. But it gets even better. Just in time for summer, the menu features delicious lobster, prawn and soft shell crab options too. Huzzah!

Both dine-in and takeaway menu highlights include:
Lobster Roll – salt and pepper lobster with lemon aioli, chives, red onion and iceberg lettuce served on a crusty Vietnamese roll ($15)
Crab Burger – crispy soft shell crab with chilli Singapore sauce and Asian slaw served on a soft white bun ($15)
Prawn Roll – fresh tiger prawns, avocado, iceberg lettuce and cocktail sauce served on a Vietnamese roll ($15)
Popcorn Lobster – salt and pepper lobster chunks with lemon aioli ($15)
There’s good news for the carb-fearing as well: Burger Liquor Lobster offers the option to go lean and replace rolls and buns with lettuce cups instead. Win-win. If you want to steer clear of burgers all together then there’s a choice of three salads; Classic Waldorf, Lobster Cobb, and Prawn Cocktail.

Burger Liquor Lobster’s cocktail list is pure summer. Kick back with a Lychee Passionpit (vodka, lychee, passionfruit sorbet, sparkling wine), My Tini Wini (gin, lemon juice, lavender syrup, watermelon, raspberries, crème de peche), or Rock Lobster (Bulldog Gin, St Germain elderflower liqueur, lemon juice, pineapple juice, yellow Chartreuse, orange blossom marmalade).

The fit-out for Burger Liquor Lobster channels a cheeky seaside vibe with nautical colour palette. Manly has undergone subtle changes but Paddington has seen a transformation to a space decked out with glass buoys, ropes and crab pots.

So, take in the harbour views on the jetty at Manly Wharf Hotel or settle into a nook by the window in inner city Paddington and get stuck into some of the tastiest burgers, rolls and cocktails around. But be quick, we’re not sure how long this lobster will stick around.
