In February this year one of our local chefs opened up 53FoodCo on the grounds of Huntington Estate in Buckaroo and I have got to say they create amazing burgers! My favourite the "Plain Jane" has a delicious shredded beetroot relish which is just scrummy. They even cater to the gluten free clientele (me) with a really good gluten free bun for the burger.
53FoodCo has their own special beef patty with their own special 53 sauce and the combination really works.
The truck gives you an option other than the platters at the wineries and Huntington Estate has set up an outside bar so you can purchase awesome beer, cider and wine, shaded seating including a new shaded picnic lawn, toys and games. No fuss, no frills... just damn fine food, drink and fun. 53FoodCo is open Friday-Sunday, 12-3pm each day.
Visit the truck for lunch when you are out and about on our Mudgee Hopper.
Huntington Estate is Stop 8 on our Budgee Budgee Blue Route and Stop 4 on our Budgee Budgee Red Route. You can stay as little or as long as you like as the Hopper does a one hour loop.
While you are there don't forget to have a wine tasting at Huntington Estate. Winemaker Tim Stevens has a huge range of white and red wines for you to try including semillon, chardonnay, cab sav and shiraz.
