Okay, so we have the butter toasted buns and succulent beef patties that people so love. And the beef burger also includes almost too much melted Gruyere cheese, smoked bacon, America mustard and an acidic beetroot relish, topped with your standard salad.
The overall effect is a perfect balance of juicy beef, with the beetroot and mustard providing enough tang to cut through the creaminess of the cheese.
If you are feeling a bit more adventurous the pork, ever-changing game burger (so far I have seen goat and kangaroo as options) or salmon burgers are fantastic options, with appropriately paired condiments such as a sweet apple relish on the pork and gherkins on the salmon.
If you are feeling patriotic get an Aussie lamb burger into you, topped off with crispy smoked bacon and aromatic mint jelly.
The crispy chicken burger with smashed avocado is a safe albeit, delicious bet or if you somehow still fail to be tempted…. who can possibly go past a good ole’ fashioned cheeseburger- AMIRITE?
Aside from lacking the variety of the Beer and Burger Lounge, Huxtaburger falls down with their soggy crinkle cut chips, so BBL swoops in to save the day. So crunchy that they look like little pieces of oily gold and the herb- flavoured salt is such a winner.
The onion ring that is given to you as a little gift on top of your burger would be enough to get the strongest willed customers racing back to the counter to order a basket for themselves.
Many other tasty sides grace the menu such as wild olives and crumbed jalopenos and the dessert menu is not to be ignored, if you have any room left. If you cannot fit in a chocolate crème brulee or ‘The Happy Ending’ donut dish, it is worth scoping the Persian fairy floss for a lighter sweet treat.
And the beer, oh the beer… and the cider for those who are more that way inclined. The taps are constantly rotating an impressive range of boutique beers such as the Mornington Peninsula brewery pale ale, as well as well as your Carlton Draught and on Tuesday’s you can get a pot of any of them for a measly $2.50.
The vibe in the place matches the food. Simple, but inviting and comfortable with super accommodating staff. And there is no eftpos minimum, which for those who are too disorganised to remember to get cash out is a real godsend.
