We were fortunate to be invited by Southside Central to dine at their Windsor location which recently opened up in April. To be honest I didn’t need much convincing to take up the offer as they simply sold me at “we have perfected the art of spiked milkshakes and mouth watering burgers”…
It’s located on Chapel street directly opposite Windsor station. Note there’s always heaps of traffic on Chapel so do give yourself extra traveling time!! (we were about 20min late for our booking…) ~
What a great two-storey burger joint with beautiful graffiti artwork along all the walls. The venue is much bigger than it looks from outside. The fit out is simple and attractive especially with the 90’s retro style; the black vinyl seating and the pink neon signs. Not a big fan of these small seating, especially those 2 seater attached to the wall – there’s simply not enough space for the amount of foods you would want to order!! – And the pink neon lights did not do much justice for the photos of the foods I took.. sorry in advance.
Food wise – DELICIOUS!!! We were happy to have Audrey bring us a selection of their top menu items so it was a great surprise when a variety of great looking goodies came out.
*Mac’n’cheese nuggets – these were lovely. They were crunchy on the outside and cheesy on the inside. The mayo itself was creamy but I couldn’t really taste the with spicy tomato ~ lucky the nugget itself was good to taste on its own!
*Jalapeno poppers – not a big fan of jalapeno but my partner absolutely loved this side. And they were huge!! I thought it would be majorly spicy but lucky it wasn’t. The sour cream was def the best dip to go with the poppers.
*Harlem Burger – This chicken and waffle reminded me of NYC especially since we were there only 6 months ago! The whole dish definitely provided the great southern vibe. The fried chicken was moist and serving was generous. I loved how the cheese melted along the side, and the white bbq sauce & maple mayonaise served in between the deliciously soft and crunchy buttery milk waffle mMmmM…. sweet, and salty all in the one dish! I’m a messy eater so the parchment paper with the small busket was presented nicely with the theme of the restaurant however wasnt too practical for me who likes to eat my burgers et. all with a fork and knife.
*The Southside Meat Market – Hubby thoroughly enjoyed this burger. The Beef pattie was juicy, southern fried chicken added another level of texture to the burger and the bacon relish was like an additional sauce for the rest of the burger.
*Snickers spiked – OMG one of the best shake I’ve ever had! The shake itself is full of flavour, not too sweet and the hint of Frangelico liqueur is just perfect to complement the rest of the choc goodness. Not a big fan of the milk bottle that it came with, and it wasnt too practical with the whipped cream and bit of snicker on top.. give me the old traditional milkshake cup please!!
So overall a fantastic meal! Service was efficient and friendly. Great pumping hip hop tunes to go along with my meal. I’m sure this joint will def be the next new destination for the burgers + spiked drinks+ beats!!
Till next time
