Ben’s Burgers – Fortitude Valley

BB Classic and Fries

I finally went to Ben’s Burgers after my friends have been raving about it and reading good reviews on Urbanspoon, I decided to give this place a try (also in hope to find the best burger joint in Brisbane) In all honestly, this place was a bit underwhelming and I was highly disappointed. Maybe it’s because I had high hopes for this place, I don’t know. The ‘no alteration’ policy is a bit of a bummer too. The staff were friendly at least, service was quick. I got the BB Classic with the fries, overall a bit disheartened. The fries were way over salted, and personally I think the bread is a big part of the burger, and I think the taste of the buns just took over the burger, the beef patty was juicy at least (maybe a bit too much pepper). But I’ll have to agree with some and it does really taste like an overpriced McDonalds Cheeseburger with the combination of the mustard, tomato sauce and pickles. I don’t think I’ll go back, there are much better burger places in the Valley that I would rather go to. Sorry Ben’s Burgers, you just didn’t do it for me :'(

Waffle Bowl – Cowch

IMG_3566

After reading great reviews from this place, I had to go to a newly open dessert bar at South Brisbane, Cowch. Greatly decorated with udders hanging from the ceiling as light, and the atmosphere was nice, which produced a nice relaxed vibe. Usually when I walked past it’s always crowded, but it was empty when we went. The staff were friendly and they offered us Salted Caramel Frozen Yoghurt (totally recommend it, tastes amaaaazing) The ordering process is a bit difficult, but everyone seemed to know what to do.

The food came quick, and as seen we got the Waffle Bowl with Cookies and Cream, and Crunchy Peanut Butter Ice Cream – toppings: Tim Tam and Mini Marshmallows. A bit messy to eat but overall quite tasty, although the prices of these do not come cheap.
