Fergburger - Tropical Swine

If there is one place to eat in Queenstown then Fergburger is the one. I was here a few months ago and felt it was a necessity to write my experience. This place is popular with the locals, travelers and celebrities, anyone you ask about where to eat will direct you to Fergburger. It is easy to find as you can spot the queue of people tailing out onto the street. The shop is small considering the demand of people who want to eat there as you just meander through the crowds. Inside are a row of tables with stools and a floor space where people just wait for their burger number to be called after ordering, Behind the counter you can see the staff are organised in a production line fashion and can watch your burger being compiled from scratch.

In terms of choice there was a great selection and I chose Tropical Swine, made up of:
  • Prime New Zealand beef
  • American streaky bacon
  • Edam cheese
  • Pineapple
  • Lettuce, tomato, red onion, aioli and tomato relish
It was yummy! You can see from the photo how large the burger was, the bun was really crispy and the chips weren't bad either. Though I would say eating the burger along would be enough to fill you up. The patty was succulent, the vegetables were fresh and the pineapple surprisingly complimented the rest of the burger. It was delicious. The chips weren't great but no one eats here for them, they come here for the massive, tasty burgers. The only downside was the lack of seating and no one cleaned the tables.
