Botanic Burgers

Hobart Life
Today we started at The Royal Tasmanian Botanic Gardens - I've always been a fan of a lazy stroll on a crisp clear day and the botanic gardens is the perfect place to do this. 

After our fair share of wandering, clean air and hogging the various water features we deserved a rest, so we headed to The Burrow. 
This a relatively new addition to the gardens and I love it! It's just under the shop and restaurant and offers a variety of books, games and amenities for everyone to enjoy.

 My favourite things are the beanbags...

You can drag one (or three!) of these babies onto the grass and enjoy!

I grabbed a coffee, my book and set about relaxing in the afternoon sunshine, looking up occasionally to take in the stunning surroundings.

This would be a perfect spot in the summer sunshine with a giant picnic and a bottle of something fizzy, but today we had something else in mind. A BIG juicy burger, check this bad boy out.

That's what I call a burger! The Burger Haus in North Hobart is relatively new in the Hobart burger scene but don't discount it because of this, it's recently been voted best burger in Hobart by 7HOFM and it's definitely one of the best in my opinion.
The space is small but cozy industrial and has a general chilled and fun vibe. They have a few long tables which are shared for that German tavern sort of feel and the staff are friendly and helpful.

Back to the food, the chips, oh the chips.

Fluffy, crisp and served with a deliciously creamy aioli, the perfect addition to the meaty, salty and sweet burger. 
I can't recommend The Burger Haus enough - friendly, relaxed, well priced and delicious. They also have a selection of speciality milkshakes, peanut butter and nutella should definitely seal the deal for any one on the fence! 
Unfortunately you can't book a table and it does get rather busy, especially Friday and Saturday nights so I would recommend a late lunch or early dinner. You can find their Facebook page here for more info. And more details for The Royal Tasmanian Botanic Gardens here
