Fairy bread burgers and ramen fries?! The crazy eats on offer this Australia Day weekend

Fairy bread is a national icon, but would you want to wrap it around your burger? One Sydney restaurant is offering this novelty sweet meaty treat in the name of Aussie pride.

It's a boom for experimental fast food in Australia. If you're looking to push the boundaries of you what you consider a burger or fries could be, this long weekend has treats in store for you! From 

If you're looking to celebrate Australia Day with a some calorific childhood nostalgia, head to Downtown Brooklyn in Penrith, NSW for a fairy bread double patty burger. The sandwich consists of two wagyu patties, a rasher of maple bacon and American cheese, all smashed between a buttered fairy bread donut. 

 

The idea was met with a lot of enthusiasm. "I LOVE fairy bread and I love burgers.... sounds amazing to me," wrote one supporter. "Okay. I'm listening, " remarked another burger fan.

Others felt it was potentially a step too far, with one critic commenting: "just because you can doesn't mean you should."

Another restaurant is also putting their spin on the Aussie novelty dessert-themed burger. Chuck Wagon 175, in Adelaide, SA is offering a lamington burger. Described on their official Instagram as: "double beef, double bacon, double cheese between two Aussie lamingtons," it's a super-rich Aussie celebration.

Commenters were divided by the creation. "100% would eat this," wrote one, while another simply said: "noppppeee!"

If you're looking to cut the sweetness of your dessert burger with a side of chips, go to the Burwood Hotel, in Sydney, NSW, to try what they call "the ultimate Nuclear Fire Noodle Loaded Fries!"

Redefining just how hot a hot chip can be, these spicy fries are actually served in a bucket of the world's spiciest chili ramen. Made with by loading up fries, Korean seaweed and sesame, you can then choose between a mix-in of spicy or extra extra hot noodles.
