Thankfully I had purposefully starved myself all morning and was consequently ravenous, so I was pretty excited at the prospect. Upon first appearance the beautifully glazed and seeded brioche bun looked sturdy, which was necessary considering the monstrous patty.
The porterhouse mince patty was one of the most flavoursome, yet still incredibly meaty patties I have ever sunk my teeth into.
The combination of fetta cheese, sundried tomatoes and spice included was happily not overwhelming.
The individual components were not even particularly detectable, but the overall effect was a patty full of flavours that rather than competing with the delicious porterhouse, just enhanced it.
The salad was all very fresh, bright and the perfect amount. It did not detract from the star of the show that was the patty, but complimented it perfectly.
The basil mayo was subtle but creamy. I was worried that the basil would cut through strongly and overwhelm the other flavours, but like everything else in the burger, it was present without being too much.
The chips were crumbly and golden on the outside and as fluffy as can be on the inside.
All in all, a really yummy (but huge!) feed. With the Prahran location having recently opened due to the loyal and large customer base at the flagship Port Melbourne premises, it is worth getting down Chapel Street before word gets out and you have to wait too long for a table.
