Mr Burger has shifted the gear, parking the big orange truck in the heart of the legal precint of Melbourne.
Planted at the corner of Barry Lane, crossing over Queen and Little Bourke Street, stopping for a sneak peek in the window at lunch time, clearly won’t work. As you find your feet have already entered the intimate sleek industrial space, bathing in the glow of the largest neon burger found in Melbourne. The task of choosing between three mister’s all made with love from locally sourced Victorian produce, including a proud family made falafel patty starring in the Mr Veg option, will have you stumped.
Feeling like I needed a good dose of protein, Mr Meat ($10) cooked on the grill medium-rare ground beef patty, hand sliced Amercian cheddar topped with rashes of bacon, layered upon a brioche bun (that keep‘s your grip) of crisp ice-berg lettuce, sweet caramilised onions, pickles, mayo and a true deep south – west smokey BBQ sauce was still in my thoughts all weekend. Thank goodness each burger is encased in a aluminium blanket, as you want to mop up all the mix of mayo – melted cheese and south west goodness with a side of thick cut fries.
Not only are the Mr. Burger people good on the grill, they’re pretty tech smart too. Mr Burger will be introducing a mobile ordering system, so you can skip the long queue’s, stay at the desk, then casually walk in to pick up the brown paper bag, that will leave rest of the office with a case of order envy.
With their first day of trade welcoming two hundred fans within four hours, I’d say you better get moving & follow the orange movement of Mr Burger.
