Garage Project presents Burger Wellington


“The simple hamburger isn’t so simple anymore”

Garage Project presents Burger Wellington is open to all participants in Dine Wellington, and Food Trucks (as non Dine Wellington participants) and this year there is one competition category – Best Burger.

The top five finalists are determined by diners who can score each and every burger they try out of ten at Using a complex algorithm (if we do say so ourselves), all scores are analysed and tallied up – based on a number of factors including number of scores received and level of score.

The winning burger is then determined by panel of judges at the Festival Awards Night.

Applications for Garage Project presents Burger Wellington open Weds 25 Jan at 5pm.
