Ninja Burgers at No 28, Newcastle

Read more on my No 28 Ninja Burgers review

It's not often I get the chance to do food reviews, I miss quite a lot of nice restaurant openings living out of Newcastle. It's not the easiest place to get to once you're out the reach of the metro! But I jumped at the chance at Cheish's invite to go and try the Ninja Burger opening event at No 28. No 28 is a place I didn't know even existed, it's located at the entrance of Grainger market on Nelson Street, it is such a cute bar/restaurant. It has a Botanist kind of vibe with all the quirky decor, I really loved it!

Anyhow, Ninja Burgers new home is No 28 and me and Samantha from Blended to Perfection popped along to try out all of their delicious burgers. I wasn't sure what to expect as it's somewhere I hadn't heard of before, but after reading up on them I was excited. They use local produce so all the beef comes from Charlottes Butchery in Gosforth and the brioche buns from Geordie Bakers in Kingston Park, I love this idea!

The first sliders we tried were beef patties, they we're cooked to absolute perfection! They were super juicy and the mustard and burger sauce combo was delicious! I'm quite a picky person, so when I usually order burgers I get them without all the onions..but I ate them as they were and they were unreal, maybe I've been ruining my burgers all these years??

Next came the popcorn coated chicken, have you heard of anything as delicious before?? It is buttermilk chicken with popcorn infused in, it was so crispy and the chicken was so tender! (Sammy even had two)! There were also vegetarian options such as panko crumbed halloumi burgers and falafel burgers. I didn't try these but they did look delicious and I heard good reviews! I ate so many sliders I doubt I could have fitted those in too.

There was also two competitions, the russian roulette challenge ft. ghost chillies (ouch) and a burger eating challenge. I don't know how some of the guys kept their cool eating those chillies but I was glad it wasn't me. Although, I do think I could have gave the burger competition a run for its money.. they were too good to waste!

Me and Samantha couldn't resist another burger, and the lovely Cheish gave us two full size ones to devour while watching the challenges. They were sooooo good. You can also get a portion of dirty fries as a side, but we were so stuffed after all of these. But I'm definitely having them the next time I go, the other half would love this food!

So if you're ever in town you definitely need to try Ninja Burgers out, I'm starving again just writing this up... I can't wait to go back, and even try the bar out for a drink. Hopefully the next time I'm there I can enjoy a cocktail and not be driving!
