The buzz: Two of the creative forces behind Brew Beer & Ciders bar and Daniel Thaiger burger truck team up to open an American diner-style restaurant at The Commons

The decor: The glass-fronted shop that used to be Jona Waffle has had its twee dangling bulbs and indoor plants replaced by an eye-popping mural of what looks like a burger-ified Where's Wally? scene. They're promising to install a few booths and more retro bric-a-brac to ramp up the character. There's communal outdoor seating, with plans in place to make this floor of the mall more nightlife-oriented.  

The food: A previous collaboration between the two resulted in a glorious back-to-basics burger at Brew. Also headlining here, the Classic Stax Burger (B260/two beef patties, B320/three, B380/four) looks to recapture all that was good about old-school American fast-food burgers. with flat patties, oozing cheese, zesty pickles and buns that won't give out on you half-way through. Another winner is the monstrous fried chicken burger (B260) featuring bird that's both crisp and juicy due to a process of overnight brining. The burgers are joined by buffalo wings (B180), a variety of fries (B160-240), plus all-day breakfast selections like French toast (brioche with Nutella sauce, banana and ice cream, B200), pancakes (with maple syrup, B200) and guacamole-topped brioche with poached egg and crispy cheddar (B240). You can still get a few types of Jona's waffles, too (from B200). 

The drinks: There are beers like Corona (B220), Rogue Amber Ale (B220) and Bacchus Kriek (B250), coffee from Roots (from B80) and soft drinks like Dr Pepper (B90), but we'd go straight for one of the killer milkshakes (B160) in no-nonsense flavors like chocolate, vanilla and strawberry. 

Why you should care: If there's been one thing lacking at The Commons thus far it's burgers, and they don't come much better than this. They're also vowing to open bright and early for breakfast soon. Carl Dixon
