Burger Challenge at Burger Junkie

We were worried that we would leave Tasmania’s shores without ever having the opportunity to try some of the exciting new burger options that have emerged in and around Launceston in the last couple of years.

If you’re looking for a meal with a difference, and don’t mind forking out for quality, drop by Smolt Kitchen and see what you think!

At The Glass House, Style is queen and she reigns supreme!
