Where Assiette once was and then Albion Street Kitchen, Chur Burger has a permanent new location – 48 Albion Street (it was previously behind the current site on Beauchamp Lane). Warren Turnbull has bounced back from a fire that damaged a short lived Albion Street Kitchen and ‘is back with vengeance’ with his ‘Chur’ Burger Bar with Grant Astle.
The kitchen reopened on June 24 and seems it’s been a go to place for lunch since then with the plenty images on instagram to show.
We time it wisely and get in before the lunch peak hour.

Beef Burger $10
A lightly toasted brioche bun is filled generously with a juicy (cooked medium) grilled beef pattie, melted cheese, delicious tomato jam (so beats regular tomato sauce), plenty of mustard mayo and my favourite, pickles. Now this is what you call a burger, and for a measly $10? I couldn’t be happier!
Chips with Chilli Salt $5
Ahh a side of chips, how could I ever say no? Thick cut chips are seasoned with chilli salt and it gives a lovely subtle hint of spice making things all that little more exciting.
BBQ Chicken Wings with Blue Cheese Dressing $10
These wings are just… to die for. It’s not your ordinary bbq chicken wings. The marinade is so special in itself. It’s sweet and flavorful from the spices used, but it’s the blue cheese dressing that makes it stand out. It’s not as pungent as you’d think; it’s creamy with a slight salty kick from the blue cheese. It paired perfectly with the marinade and the wings.
If I don’t return for the burgers (ha, fat chance since I want to try the rest of the burger menu) these chicken wings will definitely be on order.
Another visit sees me trying a couple more other burgers! Woo!
Fish Burger $10
I’ve been eyeing this baby since non-blogger M had it. Here we have several crumbed fish fillets, pickled cucumber, lemon mayo, dill on a brioche bun. Think fillet-o-fish but fresher, tastier and 100 x better! It is pleasantly light and the dill makes it all the more exciting. A huge hit for me.
Pulled Pork $10
Meaty goodness, oh yes. The tender pulled pork is topped with chur BBQ sauce, red slaw and fennel mayo. I was looking for a king hit with the flavour of the pulled pork but it just missed the mark. Still a good burger nonetheless.
