Located on the main road in the inner west suburb of Dulwich Hill, Hub House Diner is a trendy little café selling American diner inspired food. On a rainy Saturday afternoon, the place was full with people of all ages.
After sitting down, a wait staff quickly asked us for our orders. The food came out relatively quickly. However, the bottle of water on our table was not filled, and because it was so hard to get the attention of a wait staff, we ended up getting up to grabbing a bottle of water ourselves.
Since most people there ordered the burgers, we also tried the burgers. We tried the Double Beef Cheese Burger and the House Beef Burger ($19 each).
The Double Beef Cheese Burger had double beef, American jack, onion, gherkin, mustard and ketchup, while the House Beef Burger had American jack, lettuce, onion, tomato, bacon, egg, beetroot relish and smokey BBQ sauce. Both were served on a specially designed wooden board with a serving of chips on the side.
The burgers were quite flavoursome, but unfortunately the beef patties were a bit dry. Maybe they were overcooked or there were not enough fat contents in the patties. However, the rest of the ingredients in each burger provided good balance of flavour. The buns were traditional burger buns, and they were firm enough to hold, yet soft to the mouth. However, the buns on one of the burgers we ordered were cold.
The chips were very crispy and was topped with some chicken salt. We devoured them quite quickly.
In conclusion, for the price we paid for the burgers, we expected better quality burgers than what was served. Maybe we should have tried other food here instead.
