Over the whole week we were in Sydney, we had food court food four times. And out of those four times, only one was worth mentioning. I present to you... Charlie & Co. Burgers, one of our last meals in Sydney! Well... actually, I was the only one that ate it. LOL. Everyone had their own preference when it comes to food. I was actually planning on having Ippudo ramen (yes, they have it in Sydney!) but decided against it when I saw the long line forming in front of Charlie and Co. Call me gullible, but a long line anywhere is almost always a surefire way to make you get in line too. So yes, I fell in line and waited for my turn.

|Uber expensive bottle of Coke!|
Curious why I posted a picture of the Coke bottle? Because this is the most expensive Coke I've ever drank, I just had to immortalize it! At 330ml, it costs $4 AUD!!! Converted, that is around Php 160++ for a bottle of Coke, and a small one at that! Can you believe it?! If there's one thing I learned about the beverages in Australia, it's that they are quite expensive. Oh wait, did I say quite? Scratch that. They are bloody expensive! Bottled water is about $3 AUD, and sodas like the Coke above is around $3-4 AUD. And that's food court prices! Next time I go, I think I better bring my own. Or better yet, I think I'll bring over a whole truckload and start selling them over there. Who knows, maybe I'll get rich! LOL.
So do I think Charlie's "well worth the wait" motto is really worth the wait? Heck yes! This might be one of the best burgers I've tasted in a looooong time. And I've got discriminating taste! The patty was soft without being crumbly, and you could smell the heavenly scent of the patty with each bite! And I loved the fact that they incorporated eggs and caramelized onions in the burger too! Now that's what I call an authentic burger! 5 out of 5 stars!
