Crown gamble

After hanging out at Crown Casino last night, I was starving and in need of a burger, so I headed to Rockpool Bar & Grill. I’d read a bit about this burger and given the exclusive nature of the place, had high expectations.

Sitting in the bar area, I ordered the “David Blackmore’s Full Blood Wagyu Hamburger with Bacon, Gruyere Cheese and Zuni Pickle”. I was excited as I waited for the meal. Presentation and size of the burger was good, but that’s about where it ended. This was not a good burger at all. The meat was bland. The bun was buttery and like rubber. It generally lacked taste and was very disappointing.

The side of chips were just thick roasted potatoes, and consistent with the burger, lacked flavour too. Waaaaaay too over priced at $24 just for the burger, and another $12 for the chips. That’s right – $12 chips!

If you want a good burger at Crown, stick to The Merrywell!

Has anyone else had the burger at Rockpool?
