When the SALT food truck was first spotted at Kite Beach and its hashtag campaign became one of the most talked-about, the big silver Airstreamer quickly became one of the city’s favourites. And now that truck has a permanent home at La Mer, helping you satisfy your Cheetos cheeseburger cravings.
You don’t have to be a surfer to make the most of the laid-back vibes at SALT Surf House, but its interiors are inspired by an industrial surf shop. There’s also a chill-out zone and a lounge area to relax in, too.
All the SALT favourites are still there, with the addition of some new items just for La Mer, including the Black Melt, made up of wagyu beef, barbecue-sriracha sauce, crispy cheese melt served in a black bun, and the Big Salter with double wagyu beef, biggie sauce, lettuce, tomato, pickles and cheese, served in a black double-bun.
Sweet tooth? Opt for a brownie bun, a warm chocolate chip brownie bun with chocolate softie, brownie crumbs and chocolate fudge. Delish. It’s time to ditch the January diet and hit the beach with the gang.
Completely bare of additives, preservatives and all that funny business you can’t even pronounce, this burger joint focuses on making really good, organic burgers, without any of the bad stuff.
