Recently opened in the near vicinity of my work, Friday lunch beckoned. There is actually two relatively new burger places open in the area (the other will be reviewed in the not too distant future), but Meet Patty won the day based on the menu which focused on good ingredients, with minimal intervention.
Walking inside there is no confusion. This is a burger place that follows every part of the formula. This is the ‘burbs, and so no surprise they are bringing everything we have come to expect from the pioneers in inner Melbs.
The menu is simple. No towering 27 patty challenges. Single patty, double patty, spicy, chicken, veg; they are all there. Shakes and fries; there too. Pity the lack of alcohol, but at lunchtime on a Friday no loss – coffee would be nice though.
I ordered the Patty’s Signature which follows my rules to a T. Patty with cheese, lettuce, tomato, pickles and condiments on a soft brioche-style bun. Well this is apparently a fusion of brioche and milk-bun so as not to be too sweet. All the same, a damn fine bun if you ask me. The condiments were tomato sauce and mustard. Classic and done well. McClures pickles; yes, yes and yes!
If I ever sat around wondering what my ideal burger would look like, this is pretty much it. Note that I didn’t use the word perfect. There is always room for something better. Perfection is unattainable. But this offering from Meet Patty warmed my heart, and I thank them for that!
