Henley Beach is fast becoming Adelaide’s newest food hot spot. With Melt, SeaSalt, West, Lukoumades, 50SixOne, Bottega Gelateria, MiaMargarita Mexican bar, Delicia Acai Bar, Bowlsome and Acacia, all opening in 2018.
The latest news to surface, is that Burger Republic is heading to Henley Pavilion. You know that little burger joint that never really flew? Burger Club? Yeah, well that’s gone, and a burger DESTINATION is moving in.
The brand new, New York style burger bar is set to open on January 7, from noon.
For those of you familiar with the popular King William Road venue, Burger Republic will be bringing their jam packed menu beachside.
Paolo Brustolon opened the first Burger Republic five years ago, and the eclectic eatery has been dishing up the goods ever since. With their famed burgers (there’s 24 or so to choose from) including traditional favourites, alongside numbers such as the Hallouminati, the KFCB (Korean Fried Chicken Burger) and the Samurai, there’s plenty on offer.
There’s also fried chicken, hot dogs, disco fries, a kids menu and much, much more.
Since launching the popular Hyde Park burger joint and fine tuning his offering, Paolo has now brought two new business partners on board, Nima Nayebi and Rob Gerace who are helping him level the business (and its food!) up.
Paolo says “Rob and I have been friends ever since I moved to Australia, and Nima, he’s the food guy. He’s just magic in the kitchen.”
Together, the three men are aiming to bring something unique to Henley.
Burger Republic Henley Beach will be a similar size to the exisiting Hyde Park burger bar, and will offer the same vibe. With great music (think Blues, Soul music), good food, and a fully stocked bar, it’s set to fill the gap in the ever-expanding foodie scene at the beach.
While they’re keeping their bar offering similar to Hyde Park, with cocktails, craft beer, a good wine selection and more, they are planning on upping their milkshake offering.
Paolo says they’re definitely not freakshakes, but good, thick milkshakes with sensational flavours and chunks of good stuff mixed in.
There’s already 10 or so basic shakes on the menu that you can pimp with choc brownie chunks or smashed Crunchie (TAKE MY MONEY), or try the Cherry Ripe chunks.
Then there’s a range of spiked shakes like the Sweet & Salty, which is a salted caramel shake with butterscotch schnapps and honeycomb.
Adding to this will be a new selection, including things like the Mississippi mud-shake. Sounds like the diet will just need to wait.
While we’re still 6-8 weeks from the venue opening, once the doors open Burger Republic aims to trade from midday till 10 or 11pm (hello late night burger run), but the team will play it by ear and fine tune the hours as they go.
And just when you thought it couldn’t get any better? There’s talk of a breakfast menu on the horizon. Think breakfast burgers, American diner style breakfasts and more.
So who’s excited for Summer in Henley?
