The leafy suburb of Newlands will get a trendy new restaurant and takeaway spot next week. Taking over the old Wakaberry spot on Dean Street, Banks Burger is a fast-food concept serving old-school burgers made from scratch.
The family-run business aims to take the junk out of junk food and replace it with the basics: Burgers that are full of flavour and none of the nasties, like preservatives and additives. The hip orange-and-aqua-green shop will offer visitors quick-fix takeaway food that’s made with love.
The menu will be to the point, featuring burgers, fries and milkshakes. There will, however, be a vegan patty that’s free of gluten and soy. Everything will be made from scratch, including the brioche buns and pickles.
Customers can choose from three different burger sizes: Single, double, and triple for the extra-hungry. House-ground beef patties will be propped up on homemade buns with all the trimmings, including homemade ketchup and a Banks Burger secret sauce. Avoiding gluten? They’ll have you covered with a bunless option. There’ll be combos, classic fries and sweet potato chips, soft drinks and shakes, and a delivery system to make the fast food even quicker is on the cards.
