Move over, Mary’s burger: there’s a new meal in town

The boys from Mary's Newtown are taking over The Cliff Dive

In bad news for our diets, but excellent news for our tastebuds, they'll be trying something a little different from the burgers that made them famous: the Mary's Kebab. Slated to be just as delicious as the Mary's burger - just easier to eat after a night out - the kebabs will be filled with unorthodox ingredients, from smoked chicken, Lebanese pickles and garlic sauce to devil pork curry, mango pickle and sorrel yoghurt, slow-roasted lamb neck with XO sauce and a veggie option: roast pumpkin, corn, cheese, turnips and salsa verde.

Hungry yet? Mary's will be operating out of The Cliff Dive kitchen on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays from 8pm until late, starting this week. Says Mary's co-owner (and Buro culture maker) Jake Smyth: "We love The Cliff Dive boys and we love to push ourselves. The kitchen is tiny and super hot, it's tight and tough. The kebabs are hopefully the same, hold the small part. They won't be super-traditional, but we will draw influence from the "3am drunk fat man" kebab that we all love."
