We discovered Cool Bean Kitchen by accident when driving down South Road a bit over a week ago. The big yellow sign was hard to miss! Bren did a quick search and turned up a bunch of positive reviews, so we added it to the list of places to try.
The menu is quite extensive, with a range of things that aren’t burgers just in case you don’t feel like one. All day breakfast is always a good option. You can check out the menu online at http://www.coolbean.com.au/menu.html.
After much soul searching, Bren went for the Real Aussie: beef, cheese, lettuce, tomato, a fried egg, bacon, beetroot, onions and pineapple with house made ketchup and roasted garlic aioli. As you could probably guess, it was huge, and a knife and fork were required to actually eat it. Tasty, however. 7/10.
For something different, I went for a chicken option and ordered Famous Franks Buffalo Chicken Burger: Fried chicken covered in Franks hot sauce, bacon, lettuce, tomatoes, red onions, and cheese with a creamy sriracha sauce. It was a generous chunk of chicken with a good heat in the hot sauce, tangy without burning. Like Bren’s burger, it was way too big to fit in my mouth and I had to resort to cutlery. 7/10 - would have gone higher but the chicken was a little overdone and tough around the edges.
Yes, of course I got a side of chips. They were fair: nothing amazing, but I’ve certainly had worse.
I’m sure we’ll stop by here again at some point. I kinda want to try the Dirty Bird...
