Betty’s Classic ($10)

BETTY’S BURGERS AND CONCRETE CO.

I’ve been a Melbournian for over half my life, but before moving to Victoria, I actually lived for almost 5 years in Toowoomba – an idyllic country town nestled in the Darling Downs, just over 100km inland from Brisbane. To be fair though, Toowoomba actually is a decently sized place by Australian standards; with a population of over 100 thousand, it is actually the 16th [...]

BURGERLOVE

You’re in for a treat today- another post by everyone’s favourite blogging sidekick, Chris! What’s the occasion this time? Well, read on and it’ll become pretty obvious! First things first: I can’t do a review of Burgerlove without first declaring how incredibly biased I am. To explain why, perhaps a little history lesson is necessary: You see, Burgerlove wasn’t always called Burgerlove. Back in ye [...]

And let’s not even get into the whole wineries business. Take Dandenong Pavilion for example. [...]

ROYAL STACKS

Regardless of how I feel about it, Chris is a bit of a burger connoisseur. After 2 years at his previous work serving a hard apprenticeship of Burger Fridays, he definitely knows a good burger from bad. And when his old boss toted Royal Stacks to be the best burger he's ever had, well, there was nothing for it really but to visit and try [...]

MOTORHOME MAJESTIC

Grand Trailer Park Taverna has a new baby sibling. Motorhome Majestic may be located all the way out in Ascot Vale, but it could not be more apparent that the two restaurants are related. This restaurant is all about the open road. Hollowed-out RVs have been converted into bars and kitchens. It’s mostly standing room that encourages large crowds and mingling; what seating there is [...]
