Unsuspecting burger Gods, Mr Edward's Alehouse & Kitchen reign from their casual location on the corner of Edward and Margaret St in the Brisbane CBD. Dressing themselves in the usual bar layout, the alehouse delivers more than just beer and pub-style food.
Offering one of Australia's most known and loved brews, Mr Edward's Alehouse is home to the largest Coopers selection on tap in Oz (other than Coopers themselves). The bar even has it's own collaboration with the family-run brewery - Danger Brewing Co Lager. The collaborative lager delivers a well balanced body with a pallet of citrus fruits, berries and a brown sugar finish. It makes for the ideal Friday afternoon clock off and pairs perfectly with Mr Edward's Cheeky Beef Burger.
With a European fusion menu, Mr Edward's Alehouse & Kitchen add a significant twist to all of their meals. On the lunch menu the Cheeky Beef Burger stands out from the rest. With slow cooked beef marinated in 11 spices with a cheese slaw, red onion rings and green tomato relish on a soft white bap with rustic cut rosemary chips, the rich creation boasts a significant difference in quality. Unlike most burgers in high demand at the moment the bun is delicate and soft to cut into allowing the meat and other ingredients to steal the show. Stepping away from predictable pulled pork, the beef cheek is cooked to perfection holding all of it's flavour and juice, pleasing with every bite.
We were skeptical at first when it came to dessert. Brought out on a picturesque platter garnished with Malteesers and crumbling flakes of honey comb, the "Cardiac Arrest" takes inspiration from a favourable Scottish treat - a deep fried Mars bar. Taking a classier approach, a Mars bar and ice cream are wrapped in filo pastry and plated-up with mint, praline, and white chocolate sauce.
Mr Edward's Ale House is the perfect location for knock-off beers or a weekend lunch out. Taking a fresh approach, the bar provides an enjoyable, relaxed, and unique atmosphere and quality food.
