I first heard about Revolver when JHL and I were in search for Sydney's best burger. In doing my research I consulted my SMH Everyday Eats Guide 2012 where Revolver won the award of 'Favourite Burger'. We were meaning to visit the cafe for a while now, and had finally found time to stop by for brunch before our Sculptures by the Sea date.
The cafe is hidden in the quiet streets of Annandale and transformed from what used to be a cornerstore. The interior design emitted a vintage and archaic vibe. We noticed the cafe had a wide range of clientele ranging from uni students, locals, oldies, businessmen/women. It is definitely the place you go to when you want to a have a nice catchup with friends over good food and coffee.
Of course we had to order Sydney's favourite burger, named the 'Ultimate cheeseburger' topped with smoked mozzarella, old school pickles, beetroot, rocket and tomato served with a side of rosemary salted lemon chat potatoes ($14.50) . It looked too good to eat! However, with the first bite the burger was addictive, we couldn't get enough. The bun was perfect, the meat patty was juicy and the mozarella was smoked just to the right degree. The fillings gave an interesting combination of sweet and sour which complimented each other.
Also, be sure to check out Sculptures by the Sea this year at Bondi Beach to Tamarama Beach before it ends this Sunday! Some snippets below.
