For as long as we can remember, food has always brought people together. Whether it is for a simple weekend brunch or a festive Sunday luncheon, food has a way of building up bonds and creating memories.
Here are some of the ways that food brings people together:
Strengthening Family Traditions
It can be baking Christmas cookies together with the kids or even just sharing a meal (or any food or drink) over a conversation. Food has the power to bring us closer as a family as it strengthens family traditions.
To illustrate, have you noticed how the aroma of Nana’s meat pie can trigger feel-good emotions? This is because even subtle smells can induce an intense response from the brain’s hippocampus—a part of our brain that stores our memories. Food has a way of doing that. It reawakens previous memories of family traditions and family members, arousing powerful feelings of nostalgia and reinforcing our common bonds.
Creating Deep Ties to Our Culture
Food is deeply embedded in our culture. For Australians, this can be meat pies, pavlova or fairy bread. This means that food is not just seen as a means of survival but as a way of defining us as a group of people. What we eat, how we acquire the food we eat and how we prepare it are just some of the ways that define our cultural identity. Even if we migrate to another country, our local food will always have a place deep within, allowing us to connect with our people.
Facilitating Community Connections
The community is also an ideal place to create new relationships. A community activity that involves food connects us deeper with one another. For example, community food festivals do not just provide an opportunity for locals to showcase and celebrate their food. They also offer an opportunity for locals to get together over their love for food.
However, do you know what makes these get-togethers even more awesome? It’s not just ordinary food, but great-tasting food that ultimately makes such experiences memorable and meaningful.
What is a better way to do this than to bring your family together for some burgers and waffles? If you’re looking for a great burger place in QLD, check us out at Hashtag Burgers and Waffles! When it comes to burgers and waffles, we know we are the best in town. Here’s why.
Burger Patties Cooked To Perfection
When it comes to burgers, the burger patty will always be the star of the show. At Hashtag Burgers and Waffles, we take pride in having perfected the burger patties. Whether you are ordering for dine-in or take-out, our burger patties are always cooked to perfection—lean, juicy and full of flavour. If you’re not a fan of beef, we also have the ‘Lucky Chicken’ Burger with slow-cooked pulled chicken and the ‘I’m a Vego’ Burger with crumbed beetroot patty.
A Perfect Blend Of Burger Toppings And Sauce
At Hashtag Burgers and Waffles, we elevate the standards when it comes to food. You could order a classic burger with the standard toppings like cheese, onion, tomatoes and lettuce, with buns smothered with some pickled mayo, and still, be extremely satisfied.
But, if you are more of the adventurous type, our unique (but perfect) blends of burger toppings and sauce like the ‘P-BJ Burger’ will not disappoint as well. And yes, that one has peanut butter and jam, with two juicy lean beef patties, two slices of cheese and two smoky bacon pieces. It might sound weird having peanut butter and jam on your burgers, but we were able to pull it off, thanks to our hardworking and creative chefs.
Toasted Soft Bun
Hashtag Burgers and Waffles’ toasted soft bun does the finishing touches. We understand that the bun-to-burger ratio is incredibly important. It should not overwhelm the burger but should be incorporated in such a way that they become one. At Hashtag Burgers and Waffles, the soft toasted bun wraps up the burger, creating the ultimate Australian burger that you have been craving since day one.
Deep-Fried Waffle Sticks
When it comes to waffles, Hashtag Burgers and Waffles does not come close to being ordinary. Made with buttermilk, our homemade waffles are cut into strips, deep-fried and sprinkled with cinnamon sugar. Not only do you get the satisfaction of a tasty waffle, but our flavours and toppings bring the waffle to the next level.
Overloaded Caramel And Chocolate Toppings
Whether you are eating our waffles for breakfast or dessert, you will be in for such a sweet treat as they come overloaded with three different combinations of toppings: (1) salted caramel and chocolate, (2) white chocolate and chocolates and (3) Nutella and chocolates. As the toppings get trapped in the cavities of the waffle, each bite will give you a sweet satisfaction.
Made With The Freshest Ingredients
Lastly, our burgers and waffles are made only with the freshest high-quality ingredients from the meat down to the vegetables, sourced directly from the farm to ensure sustainability.
These are just some of the things that set us apart from other burger and waffle joints. So, if you’re looking for a place to create some new and lasting food traditions, visit us at Hashtag Burgers and Waffles and taste the difference. Bring your family and friends for the ultimate burger and waffle experience. We are in Fortitude Valley and the West End. We are open daily starting at 11 AM. See you!
