If you ask for a milkshake and burger with the lot this Australia Day, you may get more than you bargained for.
In honour of the national holiday, two Illawarra eateries will serve up a very Aussie spin on two classics with their Lamington shake and meat pie burger.
Popular Kiama cafe The Hungry Monkey will stack a meat pie, beef patty, cheese, crispy bacon and iceburg lettuce between two buns to create a combination almost certain to leave your taste buds confused and in need of a cold beverage to wash it down.
To that end, North Wollongong’s Blu Orange cafe has you covered with its jaw-dropping Lamington tower. More dessert than drink, this shake takes the humble Aussie cake to decadent new heights.
