Brodburger is set to reopen in it’s brand new and fancy home at the Canberra Glassworks on Tuesday 27 March.
Andrew Barr, Deputy Chief Minister for the ACT, posted this today on twitter.
It’ll be interesting to see how the experience translates into a more “normal” venue. The photo Barr tweeted also mentions a new breakfast menu. I find this particularly curious. I’ll be fully supportive if this menu consists of breakfast burgers. But if they are branching out into a generic cafe, I’ll be a bit disappointed.
While it may seem premature for me to cast my judgement, and I know that the Brod owners have full-on chef qualifications and credentials, I’ve always been a fan of places staying true to what they do best, and cutting the rest of the stuff that is merely there to satisfy a variety of consumer choice.
It’s exciting to see that the Brod will soon be back in action. I don’t think anything can really replace the experience of lining up for a delicious burger from a dodgy looking red caravan, whether in the summer heat or the icy, howling lakeside winds in winter. But it’ll surely inject even more life into the booming foreshore area and create even more parking chaos. Not to mention, well, the delicious burgers that will satisfy the cravings of Canberrans for hopefully many years to come.
