This weekend will see 10,000 burger-lovers descend on Albert Square Park, Parramatta for ‘Burgapalooza’; an epic two-day festival that will challenge even the hungriest of burger fans to sample everything Sydney’s best burger joints have to offer.

With 10 event-exclusive burgers to try for a limited time only, Presenting Partner Menulog has announced the first-ever ‘Burger Coaching Unit’ or BCU, that will intensively care for those who may have gone

too-hard too-soon at the festival and need a little support getting back out there.

Menulog’s specialist ‘Burger Coaches’ will provide everything from half-time massages, to sweatbands and towels and, even digestion-aiding aerobics and stretch routines to shimmy the first-round down and stretch the stomach for round two.

BCU Coaches have also reviewed this year’s burger line up and can now reveal the incredible lineup, with some sound advice on powering your way through the list:

Down N’ Out

Ol’ Bae

Old Bay Fried Chick’n, Swiss Cheese, Jalapeno Pepper Mayo, Buffalo Pickles, Oak Lettuce, Toasted Milk Bun

Tofu Bae

Old Bay Fried Tofu, Swiss Cheese, Jalapeno Pepper Mayo, Buffalo Pickles, Oak Lettuce

These are definitely an opener! That epic fried chicken will fly out the stand and the Jalapeno kick will help kick off the day! Opt for the vego burger if you’re looking for a Bae for the day.

Ume Burger

Ume Cheeseburger

Signature Beef Patty, Smokehouse Bacon, American Cheese, Rice Vinegar Pickles, Lettuce, Tomato, Onion, Ume Special Sauce

The elusive special sauce cannot be missed. Flight this one towards the end cos’ who doesn’t love a cheeseburger on the way home.

I’m On Protest

Grilled Portobello Mushroom, American Cheese, Smokey “Facon” Jam, Whiskey Pickled Baby Cucumbers, Jalapenos & Onion, Pimento & Chedder Mayo, Lettuce, Smokey Milk Bun

The names say it all. Hit these showstoppers midway through the eating bonanza then roll on over to the BCU for some TLC.

Soul Burger

Vegan Steven

Sriracha Aioli, Pickles, Vegan Cheese, Vegan Beast Patty, Veggie Slaw, Tomato Relish

Sriarcha is all-time and any time. There are no rules when it comes to this burger. Chow down whenever Steve calls.

Mister Gee

Monseur Gee

Dry Aged Short Rib Patty, American Cheese, Confit Garlic Aioli, Bordelaise, Taragon, Brioche Bun

This again is an opener. Get your culture on early before the Fireball kicks in and you can’t pronounce the ingredients (Test: bawr-duh-lez)

Chef’s Kitchen

Red Rock

House Made Beef Pattie, Pepper Jack Cheese, Southern Fried Onion Rings, Beef Chilli, Spiced Sour Cream, Pickles, Smoked Red Milk Bun

The Red Rock is made for enjoyment. Take this bad boy to the stage and one hand it as you rock out.

Hardstyle Kitchen

Burnt Ends Burger

14 Hour Wood Smoked Brisket Burnt Ends, Wagyu Beef Brisket Patty, Double American Cheese, Lettuce, McClures Pickles, Sweet Dill and Mustard Mayo

Double meat combo requires double stomach space. Hit this one after a stint at the BCU to make sure you’ve got room for that sweet, sweet *drool*.

Burger Head

Bring the Ruckus

BH Smashed Pattie, Maple Bacon Jam, Smoked Cheese Sauce, Gravynaisse, American Hi-Melt Cheese, Beer pickled Onion

Gravynaisse is WILD. Once again it’s in the name for this one. Leave it until later in the fest. when you’re in about the same space as this smashed pattie.

As if the line up couldn’t get any better, a first-ever dessert partner has also been revealed:

Duo Duo

Deep fried ice-cream

Brownies and ice-cream

Not required – dessert is a different stomach
