Don't be fooled by the name, this isn't your everyday Aussie burger joint
This casual takeaway and eat-in restaurant, located in the small Mount Druitt Village shopping mall, packs one heck of a punch. Serving up a fusion of Filipino and American-style cooking, Mate Burger is a bricks-and-mortar home for the popular food truck that has been doing the Sydney rounds for a number of years. Expect hearty burgers and fries with a distinct Filipino twist. The Ensaymada Burger, the most popular dish, features a smashed beef patty, creamy kraft cheese, and candied maple and sriracha bacon, in a sweet Filipino-style bun. There’s also some reinventions of Filipino mainstays, like the chicken adobo loaded fries, which piles the classic slow-cooked style chicken on a bed of hot chips, drizzled with peri peri sauce, aioli and crackling. The menu is also always changing, with monthly burger specials and rice bowls, as well as a Filipino-style spaghetti and fried chicken dish, a nod to the family-favourite meal served at the beloved Filipino fast-food chain, Jollibee.
