A similar revolution has occurred in the world of hamburgers. The taller and more extravagant the burger, the better.

Newy Burger Co’s success prompted other venues to get inventive with their burgers and now the Sydney-based Goodtime Burgers has set up shop at The Exchange Hotel in Hamilton.

Hoteliers Andrew Lazarus and Liam Constantine bought the hotelin August for $6.625 million and wasted no time renovating theinterior. With its exposed brickwork, splashes of greenery,custom-made furniture andprivate booths, The Exchange would hold its own in the trendiest of Surry Hills streets.

“The Exchange is an institution in Hamilton dating back to 1880. We wanted to take the venue back to its roots in terms of the aesthetics and design whilestill putting our own stamp on it,” Mr Lazarus said.

The rationale behind Goodtime Burgers was, he said, to “create amazing gourmet burgers with the freshest and highest quality ingredients at an affordable price”.

“We love giving the consumer value for money because they will keep coming back for more,” Mr Lazarus explained.

“Newcastle is a perfect demographic forGoodtimeBurgers. We felt there was a gap in the market for top quality gourmet burgers and a fun brand likeGoodtimewould go hand in hand with the more relaxed Newcastle lifestyle.”

The point of difference is, he said, their secret sauce. All 21 of them,created by chef Atick Tamim in Sydney.

“Wealso create a crazy new burger each week, offer $5 burgers every Wednesday and run the Man vs Burger challenge. If you can eat a one-kilogrammonster in under eight minutes it’s on the house.”

Andrews Meats supplies beef for the patties and Goodtime Burgers’ Japanese milk buns are made by “a secret baker in Sydney who keeps the recipe under lock and key”.Dayle Meredith calls the shots in the kitchen.

“We have been blown away by the support so far from the people of Newcastle, already outselling all our other venues within the first three weeks,” Mr Lazarus said.
