I’ve been so busy lately that I’m struggling to keep up with the posts. Not too busy to eat burgers though. Just happened to be driving past Glen Waverley, and remembered that I had seen Meat in the Middle on a previous burger adventure.
I’m not sure whether this can be classed as a proper burger. They have cheated a little, by adding pork to the patty. It was served very pink – which I love – and the flavour was pretty good, I must admit. There is a lot going on here, and the maple bacon is a clear standout in this combination. Disappointingly, for such a large burger, the white bread bun struggled to hold it all in check. Another case of a good looking bun, that doesn’t back it up with the substance. There was a significant mess at the end of this session.
The pricing is right up there on the expensive side, although the care that was put into the preparation was evident. The menu was lacking a little for me. The choices were confusing. There was nothing simple. And the silly names were hard to remember when ordering (the menu was not easily visible from the order point).
I did really enjoy this. And I was really hungry at the time. I would definitely never actively try to stop someone from coming here for a burger, but there is something way more special down the road that will draw me in next time: YOMG.
