Time Out Says
There are seven burger orders to choose from, and all but one have a name. There’s the Rex (with bacon and cheese), the Ringo (just cheese), the Marshal (mushrooms), the Wayne (plain), the Big Johan (a double burger) and the Cooper (one of every burger). Oddly, they didn’t give a name to the Arabian burger, which comes served on Arabic bread. We ordered up a Marshal and a Rex, and paired each with chilli cheese fries and, incongruously, fresh squeezed juice.
These were messy burgers, the kind of thing you’d down in the wee hours after hitting the clubs and the Stoli (it’s fitting that Hush Burger stays open until 2am). This wasn’t a perfect burger. You don’t get to choose how you want it cooked, the bun could have been a bit softer and a bit warmer, and the patty itself is awfully dense. It does get credit for its seasoning: the meat is laced with parsley, and the special ‘Hush souce’ [sic] helps make it a drooly, sloppy haven of comfort. The fries are good on their own: medium-thick and well crisped. I can’t say I’m too sold on the chilli cheese combo though; I found the chilli, though possessing a reasonable kick, too dry.
At the end of our meal, the owner came out and gave us each some Mars chocolates and our very own Hush porcelain mug. We were further endeared. While we couldn’t visit a place like this too often, it’d make a nice stop after a night out or a hard day.
