With so many burgers out there it’s hard
to know where to go anymore, thankfully you have us and we are testing out the
burger scene, so you know what you’re walking into. We recently had the
opportunity to head down to The Famished Wolf’s newest location in Patterson
Sitting just back from the water The
Famished Wolf is an elevated version of the humble fish and chip hamburger.
Everyone loves their local hamburger chip shop, but what The Famished Wolf does
it takes it further – using a variety of flavours through their burgers to give
them that something extra, from the ingredients to the slightly crunchy but
still soft buns that make these burgers special.
To get an idea of any burger shack we like
to try their straight up burger, this is the one that is usually first on the
menu and in our opinion is often the best and is a true reflection of how they
make their burgers.
Opting for the Cheesy, which was a straight
forward beef patty, cheese,
lettuce, tomato and their burger sauce and the for something a little bigger,
we also got the U.S.A, beef patty, double cheese, double bacon, mustard, lettuce
and barbecue sauce.
you can’t just have a burger on its own, while getting down on our burgers we
munched on Beer
Battered Onion Rings, Homemade Crumbed Chicken Wingdings and of course Loaded
Fries covered in cheesy sauce, crispy bacon, diced pickle, spring onion and a
squiggle of American mustard.
What did we think?
We loved it, not just because we ate some
good burgers, but because they were full of flavour, fresh and they were BIG.
These weren’t some little itty-bitty things; they had some size on them which
fill you up and let you leave happy.
I don’t think you necessarily needs sides
for this one as the burgers are large but if you’re like us you get them
anyway. First up the onion rings, these were good, golden, crunchy and not
overly saturated in oil which for us is important. Wings were good, simple,
good crunch and full of flavour we just wanted more of these. And finally, the
loaded fries – these were a meal on their own, we couldn’t even finish them
there was that much which is saying something. But next time we would get them
without the American mustard as we found it over powered the rest of the fries
All in, these burgers are tasty, big and
really satisfy a hunger. If you like to get some variety in your burger rolodex
these are definitely a worthy entry to throw in the mix.
