Plan B - Sydney CBD, Sydney

Ever since I read about the mouth-watering, irresistible and totally seductive homemade Wagyu beef burgers that NQN posted up I had been craving them. Actually looking back at her post now, I am still craving them even after getting a fix haha! Since I do not possess the skills of being able to re-create them I relied on the easier plan of Plan B.

Plan B by Becasse is a tiny little cafe right next to its papa Becasse
This tiny little space is where the Barista is stuck most of the day but being surronded by the fragrant smell of coffee beans and the even more aromatic smell of Wagyu beef burgers can't be all bad :P

The famous $7 Sausage roll, croissants, muffins, quiches, rolls and some other pastries

Pretty cool light.. ignore the ones missing

Fridge full of goodies
There are some sandwiches, rolls and salads also for sale here which are also a popular choice for lunch on the go but if you have time I highly recommend the Wagyu beef burger.

Its only 10 dora! Huzzuh!
Fortunately Pupu had some business in the city so I was able to convince her to come Plan B for a late lunch ^^! Of course we had to have the Wagyu beef burger but this time there were also the $7 sausage rolls which I missed out on my first visit cos it was sold out!

After going Yay for beef burger and sausage roll and ordering, Here Comes the Food.

Home made Sausage Roll ($7) - Lamb and smoked paprika sausage roll

Home made Sausage Roll ($7) - Lamb and smoked paprika sausage roll
Being the most expensive sausage roll in Sydney that I know of (maybe even Australia?) I had very high expectations from this morsel. It turned out not as mind blasting as I hoped but I was still very happy that I had tried it because it was a very very delicious sausage roll. Maybe my expectations were too high and I wanted something totally epic?

The crispy golden pastry wrapped around lamb mince nice and snugly and added a beautiful flaky texture to the whole experience. The lamb mince did not smell or taste strongly of lamb at all and it was soft and tender. The accompanying tomato chutney was pure brilliance and made the perfect chunky sauce for this sausage roll.

My cute little Wagyu beef burger. Would be cuter if it was 2 times or 3 times bigger hee hee

The famous Becasse Wagyu beef burger ($10) - 600-day grass fed wagyu beef burger with beetroot and caramelized onions
The burger was as orgasmic as the first one I had tried ages ago. The beef was tender and melty with a sweet creamy sauce and perfectly melted cheese on top. I also love beetroot in burgers so yay ^^! The brioche bun was toasted with nice crispy edges but soft and buttery in the thicker portions. I think they could have done with a bit more caramelized onions this time but overall still a heavenly experience mmmmmmmmmm.

I don't know how this would compare to NQN's as I would have to try hers first before I compare *nudge nudge wink wink* ;) Judging on appearance, they would both be an ultimate snack or meal, perfect for anytime of day!

Hey not fair! Too much Wagyu food porn in the last 2 days lol. You know I'd love to make the burger again but it needs to have fresh brioche and it's such a huge production!

Oh and I think they've changed the sausage rolls, mine definitely wasn't lamb. The other one was amazing...
