A public holiday, the amazing Salamanca markets, getting burgers seemed like the different thing to do.With my latest escapade to Hobart, there was nothing better than topping off a day of exploring with a good restaurant for a burger. I know that the Salamanca Markets are renowned for their seafood, but seafood allergy in another state is hardly a thing to scoff at.
And hey, if you can do burgers right, then you can win my heart, Hobart.
The gauntlet was thrown down to Jack Greene.
Set right in the heart of the Salamanca Markets, this is one place that you literally couldn’t afford to go past.
The aromatic smells of all the quaint pubs automatically pull you in. Jack Greene is a multi-level pub with the bottom more like a bar and the upstairs a cozy gathering surrounded by books on one side, a lodging feature on the other and finally a picturesque view of the bay.
I chose the peri-peri chicken with a side order of Tassie wine (unfortunately I couldn’t find the name and didn’t write it down…must mean I need to go back and re-visit, right?)
First of all, those chips were heavenly. The crunch in your mouth and the hard coated exterior with the soft warm interior. Oh, you know how to win a man’s heart, Tassie.
Then the peri-peri chicken. Wow. The bacon. The melted cheese all drizzled in peri-peri heaven. I was in love, from the first bite to the last. This one burger was good with the only flaw being that it wasn’t big enough to fill my man-sized hunger. I would recommend it hands down!
What more can I say? This was one amazing trip and Jack Greene really capped off the event. Go for the views, stay for the food – you won’t be disappointed.
Join the fun – you know you want to!
