Demeter: Darn, no can do Saturday. I live too far out of the city to make it in just for lunch =/ But if you Hipstagram me your burgers it'll be just like I was there.

Any other good places for burgers in the Auckland CBD? Preferably the kind that aren't afraid of flinging a handful of actual vegetables on there.


Tell me about these "vegetables" of which you speak?


Vegetables are what food eats.


If you eat vegetables, You are killing what food eats so its not good.

Had heard Burger Burger was good, then saw the review in the herald yesterday, then this.

May have to organize a lunch trip there next week.

In the immortal words of Sgt. Esterhaus in Hill Street Blues...."Let's be careful out there!"

Need to watch for those vegetable toxins diluting the purity of our meat.....

(As a non-humourous aside, I watched a BBC Horizon documentary about taste recently which said that people with abnormally high numbers of taste buds - 'super tasters' - usually find vegetables unpalatable because they can taste the bitterness present in many of them that average or below average tasters cannot taste!)

This place has to be everyone's ultimate aim when it comes to burgers. Mecca....

Anywhere you can add 40 bacon slices to your burger is heaven on earth.

nate: Murder Burger was great until they shut down in Ponsonby.  They've moved out to Manukau, not sure if it's still the same though :/


Looks like they're setting up in Mt Eden, just down the road for your place. On the corner of Dom Rd and View/Valley Rd (I get those two mixed up). Used to be a stereo shop that was blue with big dots on it, then a Telecom shop. Coming soon, the sign says.

Keen to find out what they're like.

Right, You need to take me to where you eat. Starting tomorrow!


Burger Burger in Ponsonby. I'll meet you there for lunch! Bring JR


Saturday lunch at burger burger with JR, Me, Lon?


Yah, I could make that work. 


Would anyone be keen to do this during the week?  I work around the corner from Ponsonby road.  Like a mini-Geekzone lunchtime meet up thingy (TM).
