I've always regarded Canberra as a beautiful but soulless town so it was refreshing to discover Brodburger. Brodburger is a Canberra institution and is prepared and served from a little red caravan by the lake. The photo doesn't depict it but by the time Mellie, Aaron and I came to collect our burgers there was a real crowd.

So what is a Brodburger? A standard Brodburger is a fantastic culinary execution of a homemade burger featuring a soft bun, thick beef patty, salad, lashings of aioli, tomato relish and your choice of cheese (swiss, brie or blue). However there number of other options including chicken (pictured above), fish, vegetarian and the Brodeluxe which features eggs and bacon.

To fully appreciate the joy of the Brodburger you must be (a) hungry and (b) have plenty of time. There is only one window to collect and order from and they appear to do this in batches. Once you have ordered your meal, it can take anywhere between 45 minutes to 1 hour to finalised ... but once you have the gorgeous burger in your eager little hands, you won't be disappointed.
