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. 

See what else is on the menu around the Illawarra on Friday:

  • Burgers by Josh at Cringila has created a one-off special kicking off on Thursday night with “our take on the great Aussie milk bar burger the Shane Warne”.
