Rowdy Double Jeopardy at Guilty, Darlinghurst
You would think with so many burger joints popping up in Sydney that I’d be sick of burgers by now but nay this is not the case when it comes to the newly opened Guilty in Darlinghurst. Run by Jimmy Hurslton, (owner of Easy’s in Melbourne) and eater of all the burgers in all the lands, Guilty is located in the old Civilian site in the Republic 2 courtyard.

The Rowdy Double Jeopardy ($17) is Sydney’s version of Easey’s Rowdy Double and is pretty damn awesome! There’s juicy double patties with melty American cheese, pickled jalapenos and uber crispy bacon. The patties were so fricken juicy it was insane! LOVE LOVE LOVE! The pickled jalapenos provided the perfect acidity so the burger didn’t feel overly greasy but man how I do love crispy bacon!

Kecksburger at Guilty, Darlinghurst
The Kecksburger ($10) is their classic cheeseburger with pickles, crisp lettuce and tomato slices. I love Guilty’s patties, they’re just so flavoursome and had a great texture with caramelised edges. I’m usually not a fan of salad in my burgers but it’s a great burger for lunch as it’s not too heavy and I don’t succumb to a burger coma.

The Double Kecksburger is much more my jam though, the meat to bread ratio works better with the double patties and that beautifully perfectly melted cheese.

Eli's Ruby at Guilty, Darlinghurst
Guilty isn’t all about the burgers, there’s also Eli’s Ruby ($10), Guilty’s take on the Reuben sandwich with layers of thinly sliced slow cooked pastrami, a layer of kale kraut, swiss cheese and house made seeded mustard mayonnaise on rye bread. There’s slices of pickles in there but I kinda wished it came as a whole pickle and on the side?

Mack Dawg at Guilty, Darlinghurst
There’s a Chili Dog ($10) on offer too but we opt for the Mack Dawg ($10), a double smoked pork dog with a generous serve of rich 5 cheese mac & cheese and a handful of pretzel pieces for that salty crunch.

Tots To Life at Guilty, Darlinghurst
And you can’t have a burger without some form of fried carb right? There’s Chips ($5) and Chilli Chips ($10) but my heart has zeroed in on the tater tots. I fricken love tater tots! More places need to have tater tots! The Tots To Life ($8) are golden tater tots covered in cheese sauce, bacon bits and caramelised onions and it is the perfect bar snack to go along with their beers (they’ve even got Melbourne Bitters on tap!).

Banana Split at Guilty, Darlinghurst
For dessert there’s the Pop Tart Ice Cream Sandwich ($10) but I’m can’t resist the Banana Split ($10) with mountains of whipped cream, rich fudge and maraschino cherries.

It gets a little chilly at night in the courtyard so be sure to rug up! I’ll see you soon Guilty!
