I wanted to REALLY love this place. The fitout was insane. Loved the train theme. Brought me back to my high school days, catching these old Hitachi trains with the windows down in Summer. I remember waiting at the train station, hoping that one of these non-air conditioned trains wouldn’t arrive. They were sweat boxes! The way they have set this place up was truly amazing.
But, the burger was just a little, meh?! First of all, the patty was amazing. Perfectly cooked. Awesome beef flavour. Probably the best I’ve had. But the rest just doesn’t live up to the hype. The bun was 1 step up from a standard white bakery roll. The lettuce was cut. OMG, chef’s love to throw around fancy French terms like “chiffonade,” but for me cut lettuce is the wrong way to go about it for a burger. And the tomato sauce dominated the experience. I can still taste it now.
Pinky had a double, and it was tiny. He left well undernourished.
Don’t think I could revisit this place. Despite the awesome views, the hype, and the beer, the burger is the main event. It fell well short of expectations.
Tonight I tasted Melbourne Bitter for the first time; and it was horrible.
