Burger Heaven at Happy Ending, Concord

Thursday, January 25, 2018

Happy Ending may just be the answer to all of your burger needs. The takeaway joint takes over the space of what used to be a family fish and chip shop on the main strip of Concord's Majors Bay Road; a hole in the wall space that fits a row of indoor counter seats and just a handful of tables outside.

The team running this hot burger joint is the same as the one behind the infamous Mister Gee's burger truck. This is their first bricks-and-mortar store, so you can imagine the crowds that have flocked to sample what could be one of the best burgers in the inner west.

The interior is reminiscent of a funky diner, with a purple tint and short and sweet menu listed above the front counter.

Their opening menu featured three beef burgers and one chicken variety - although since then this has expanded to numerous other seasonal specials.

No Mustard Please ($12)
This is Happy Ending's version of the classic cheeseburger. A dry-aged beef patty, caramelised onion, american cheese and their house special sauce No. 2 sit inside a soft, lightly toasted milk bun. This is the epitome of the perfect cheeseburger, with a juicy, tender patty and charred, smoky outer crust on the meat. Just look at that golden, shiny sauce.

Bonus Round ($14)
A step up from the No Mustard Please, the Bonus Round burger has a few extra ingredients and is sandwiched together with a slightly different sauce - this one aptly named 'sauce No. 6'. Tomato and spanish onion add a fresh crunch, and the secret sauce is creamy and tangy.

Fries ($3)
Of course, you can't have burgers without ordering a quintessential side of fries. These don't disappoint - they're cut in a classic French Fry style and go perfectly with a squeeze of ketchup.

You'll be hard pressed to find something not to like about Happy Ending. Their burgers are truly beautiful, well-constructed specimens, with every component playing its part to form the perfect mouthful - from the slightly sweet bun to the toasty, coarsely minced patty with its charred crust, the perfectly melted cheese and the bang on-sauces. Get on down there if you haven't already!
