A while ago Danman recommended I check out the burgers at the G Spot, so here’s a blow by blow comparison between them and that greasy van out back of the Belconnen Labour Club (apologies, but I forgot the name of the place). The BLC greasy is a 10/10/10 for comparitive purposes – in advance disclaimer, its not exactly my opinion of a perfect burger, but suitable to compare to.
The G Spot
Taste (Flavour) = 14
Size = 9
Ingredients = 12
Decor/Cutlery = Not Rated
Waiting Staff = 12
Cost = Not Rated
The G Spot burger I had was the wrap version, which while at first was quite novel, became relevant in a drunken capacity to hold the entire thing together a lot better than a conventional 2 bun arrangement. Naturally, this is at the expense of ingredients, so it is a smaller burger. The G Spot burger pattie is a well-spiced, hand-made pattie, although again due to size, quite thin. I quite liked the egg, which was done to just cooked, with the yolk looking like it might fall apart, but not quite managing it.
I’ve not ranked the price or the decor/cutlery, and in another general disclaimer, I write this having received the G Spot burger for free, and delivered to me, in the course of an unrelated agenda I was involved with today.
I give it a 12, it’s a damn good burger. I like what he’s done with the wrap, and getting home drunk is hard enough, getting home drunk and with clean hands is now a possibility with this burger. Gunners isn’t that far away that I’d go out of my way to pick up one of these babies if I was hunting for a feed, although naturally of course if I was a little under the weather from adverse alcohol exposure, I’d not drive to get there.
So… next time I’m on the fair weather in Gungahlin, I’d probably stop in for a quick chat and a follow-up review.
