I was moonwalking down Kloof Street the other evening when I spotted Hudsons Burger Joint. I had heard about it from Dave (of Caprice fame) and was dying to try it out. Aah, so THAT’s where it was!
Hudsons Burger Joint on Kloof..
It’s opposite the Kloof Lifestyle Centre (loads of parking), by the way. Next to the garage. that’s the one.
As the name suggests, it’s a burger joint. They’ve got 150g burgers, as well as 250g. And they’ve got a RAD selection. I sat outside and went for the “WiseGuy” which has got some hot stuff inside it – because that’s how I roll. Baby.
Amongst the myriad of wild and wonderful concoctions, they even had an Ostrich Burger! I know, how cool is that? Now you don’t have to feel bad, because ostrich is oh-so good for you (if I remember correctly?!). The roll (carbohydrate) will be fine – I won’t tell anyone.
But don’t take MY word for it – have a look over their marketing blurb:
Their concept is to introduce a completely unique, simple, more direct burger bar, offering the highest quality burgers you can get in Cape Town. Their burgers comprise of freshly ground beef, made in-house, every morning. No soya proteins, limited fat (from the regular 20% down to Hudsons 5%) – just whole-grain meat. What else makes Hudsons so unique from the rest? Double crunch fries, sour dough buns, a chickpea and lentil veggie burger, vanilla lemonade, and other innovative toppings to top off the menu.
Hudons is open from 9am to 11pm Tuesday to Saturday and is located at 69A Kloof street, Cape Town. To book a table call 021 4265974 or mail firstname.lastname@example.org
So ja I just wanted to tell you about this place and I hope that you give it a bash. It’s basically what Burger Royale on Long Street should be. Unfortunately when you go there you also have to deal with Long Street which comes with the obligatory drug peddlers, whores, cockroaches and parking nightmares..
It’s your call.
And what’s more, Dave tells me The TBG has been to Hudson’s more than once.
You do the math. Hudsons wins.
Oh, God, almost forgot – they’ve got a Jack Black Beer tap there – an immediate entry into “the vibe.”
And they have a CRAZY bathroom – but I want you to find out about that yourself.
Finger Clothing is two doors down. They’re the dudes that stock the exclusive Ape Town range of T-shirts.
That’s enough now.
Go get that burger.
To the Royale fans who are emailing me and getting worked up about the above article – take it from whence it comes. Not to be misunderstood, 2oceansvibe are (and always have been ) massive fans of Royale and are not dissing Royale for one second. We’re referring to Long Street, and what one has to deal with when there. Nothing against Royale. If anything, it annoys us that we don’t go there as often. The whores, drugs, parking hassles and cockroaches were grammatically connected to Long Street, not Royale. Give it another read..
Thanks for the support – some great passion out there. Nice vibe, guys!
