Want to try the dim sim burger with potato pie?

An unusual burger with controversial ingredients like a dim sim and potato cake has been crowned Australia’s best burger.

Melbourne burger joint Easeys won the coveted title of ‘Australia’s Best Burger’ in the Litt Burger of Origin competition with its Motz Madness creation, a double Oklahoma fried onion burger.

Judge Cal Stubbs, Australia’s No. 1 and No. 9 in the world rankings for professional competitive eaters, toured the country in style full of obstacles – including border closures and strict lockdowns – to bravely sample the 17 best burger joints.

“It was a nail-biting contest that all came down to the final tasting,” he said.

‘The competition between the last four burger joints was very strong and it was only after the last tasting that I was able to pick a clear winner. Couldn’t go past Easeys’ Motz Madness burger, it was soft on the palate and the onions worked perfectly.

“It has some unusual additions, like a fuzzy sim and potato cake that go over the edge. Australians should give it a try, even the pickiest eaters will love this burger, you certainly won’t regret it.’

Easeys owner Jimmy Hurlston said he was “completely shocked” and “ecstatic” after his burger came out on top, beating stiff competition from the likes of Sydney’s Bar Luca and Brisbane’s Hashtag Burgers and Waffles.

“I still can’t believe our burger was crowned the best. I was just happy to be one of the best burger restaurants and I’m truly honored to come out as the winner here,” he said.

“The burger industry is a small place, so I know the competition well and knew it would be difficult to even make it to the finals because I knew the other 17 burger joints would give their best.

“I took a leap of faith with the Motz Madness by adding a potato pie and a fuzzy sim, but it paid off and I’m happy to see Australia embrace my creation.”

The hunt for Australia’s best burger was orchestrated by the LITT social media app to revitalize Australia’s hospitality industry.

It has paid to give away thousands of these burgers for free through its Pokémon GO-style augmented reality treasure hunt to attract customers to these small businesses — who need support to bring patronage back to pre-Covid levels.

In a grand finals event that navigated under strict Covid protocols, the ingredients of all five state finalists were flown to Melbourne, especially for the Chief Justice’s world-renowned palate.

Hosted by Hellos Sams in Melbourne, the state finalist chefs zoomed in to instruct Chef Stu to recreate their winning creation — ensuring they were just as delicious as if they were made in their own restaurant.

The runners-up and thus the winner for each respective state were; Bar Luca in Sydney, Hashtag Burgers and Waffles in Brisbane and RoyAls in Perth.
