The Brodburger returns

So tonight the RiotACT crew was invited to the launch party of the legendary Brodburger, relocated to the Kingston Arts Precinct.

It was a star studded event. In the midground of the above photo you can see the ACT Treasurer Andrew Barr scarfing down one of the mini burgers on offer last night. The big guns of the Commonwealth Cabinet were there too, Minister for Resources and Energy, Martin Ferguson, barged past the Riot team on his way out of the building.


The new premises is in the heart of the old Kingston industrial precinct. Here’s the exterior view:

The staff are kitted out in very cute uniforms:

The kitchen is much bigger than in the old establishment:

But the old caravan is still out the front:

As expected at Brodburger the wait saw packs of jackals stalking the wait staff coming out of the kitchen:

Finally Sascha Brodbeck and his partner Joelle Bou-Jaoude made their speeches to a packed crowd under the light of Mount Pleasant.

The evolution of this institution will be fascinating to watch.

But I think the design will suit their late night cruising driver crowd as much as those who just want a damn good burger.

What’s Your opinion?

I GOT A VEGAN BURGER AND IT WAS REALLY, REALLY, REALLY… GOOD.

MLA Joy Burch was on the goggle box, extolling the virtues of Brodburger, and how the ACT Government was happy to assist their business with the relocation.

Is this a service offered to all businesses in Canberra?

I’m also curious about the details of the Government’s “assistance” in relocating Brodburger. I’m completely in support of helping out the little guy, but the amount of Government interest in this food van seems oddly disproportionate – or at least it seems that way given the amount of exposure the relocation has received.

I think it’s funny that Grill’d is opening in Manuka. Do they seriously think they can compete with Sascha?

But they do have a vegetarian burger.

Burgers made from vegetarians? Ick!

Would be good if the government bent over backwards for all small businesses like they have for this burger joint.
Are they up to $20 a burger yet?

johnboy 9:30 am 27 Mar 12

That one would not be, because who would do such a thing.

But they do have a vegetarian burger.

So, the burger in the foreground of the first photo wouldn’t be vegetarian would it?

Grill’d is moving in up at Manuka soon, will be interesting to see if that deters some from making the hike. Looks like the “premium burger” market is heating up… can’t come soon enough in a world of Hungry Jacks and Maccas.

You mean Hungrys and Maccas aren’t premium?

To be fair it wasn’t just the great and the good. Plenty of big men with big beards and the women who love them too.

Kinda goes against the grain to have a fancy pants launch for Canberra’s glitterati (haha) seeing as Brodburger made its name thanks to word of mouth spread by the common man.

I agree (but that’s most likely because I wasn’t invited considering how many of their burgers I’ve consumed is a little rough)

What’s a brodburger worth these days?

Might check it out this week all the same.

Haha one of the jackals is Ramsay. Now the Kingston Arts Precinct beats the City ‘Arts Precinct’, which is mainly a carpark and Indian restaurant.

City has an arts precinct?
