|Plain Burger ($4)|
In my opinion, everyone should have a decent burger place within walking distance of their house. Nunawading Fish and Chip Shop may not be within walking distance per se, but it’s certainly convenient, located right by my train station for whenever I want a burger fix. Unaffected by time, it’s exactly what you’d expect a traditional fish and chippery to be – menu hand-written on a chalk board, complete with little drawings, and filled with the most delicious smells. I’ve never had anything of theirs except the burgers, but based on the burgers alone, I’ve reason to believe that the fish and chips, as well as their other miscellaneous fried goods are just as delicious. Shown above is the plain burger ($4). It comes with a coarse, irregular home-made patty that has crispy edges and a juicy, well-herbed center. None of that 98% fat free business here – you get to enjoy every drop of grease that soaks into the crispy toasted bun. Extras can also be added for a mere 50c each, though this burger doesn’t need any cheese or bacon to tempt me, it’s perfect just the way it is.
Rating: 14.5/20 – cheap and delicious burgers
