So the boy and I were out west and in need of burgers and I realised I could finally check out the Bella Shack food truck that’s parked over in the Bella Vista Hotel. Raff and Grace were in the area so we joined them for a nice lazy Sunday lunch and strategised our plan of attack. All burgs comes with rosemary salt fries and a drink hence the slightly higher prices. Ready? Here we go!
Raff orders The Bella Big Boy ($20), a towering behemoth with 2 x house ground beef patties, a crispy rasher of smoked bacon, triple American cheese, Bella Secret Sauce, dill pickles, Spanish onion, tomato and lettuce on a toasted milk bun.
I mean, JUST LOOK AT IT! That sauce! That cheese! Roll up your sleeves and be prepared for a lip smacking, saucealicious burger!
Grace has opted for The Bella Cheese ($13), a single pattie with double the cheese. It’s plenty tasty, the pattie is the biz, super juicy with caramelised edges.
Noods orders the burger special, the JAL-AP-EN-YO-FACE ($23) because he’s always a sucker for chilli. The burg is a bit on the pricey side considering it’s basically the single pattie Bella Boy ($15) with tapioca fried jalapeños, jalapeño relish and creme fraiche mayo. Considering I melt at the very thought of chilli, I thought it could’ve actually been more spicy but hey it was a delicious and saucy burg.
Aaand I’ve gone for The Bella Chicken ($15) and added a slice of American cheese ($2). This burg is surprisingly my fave of the bunch, with buttermilk fried chicken, chix sauce, dill pickles and lettuce on a toasted milk bun. I fricken loved the crunchalicious chicken, it was perfectly juicy with a freakishly light batter and I have nfi what the chix sauce was but it was creamy and provided that extra oomph of flavour to knock this outta the park.
