These are a few of my favourite things – Burgers

I love burgers. In my eyes, burgers are an amazing combination of carbs, protein, dairy, fruit, vegetables and condiments. Adelaide seems to have gone a little burger mad this summer with more food trucks and burger joints popping up around the place, and from what I hear there will be even more appearing in the coming months.
