Huxtaburger

18 Jul

I’ve been seeing this burger joint pop up everytime I type Melbourne Burger on Google. See I’ve been on the hunt for a good burger place in Melbourne as, unfortunately, the mum and pop shops with their burger with the lot (bacon, beetroot and eggs..) just doesn’t do it for me.  So far only Grill’d has satisfied my burger cravings but as they say “variety is the spice of life..” and I sure like spices.

So one fine day, while my daughter was at daycare, hubs and I trooped down (well not really trooped down as I hung around while he did his chores i.e work until finally we made our lunch stop) to Collingwood to try the burgers that I’ve read so much about in cyberspace.

Hubs ordered the Theo – which had double patties and double cheese (of course!)

while I had the Denise – jalapeno and sriracha mayo (I did say I like spicy!)Image

both with a side order of chipotle fries =)

I must say after one bite.. I was in love! It was really worth the fuss.. no wonder there was a long queue to order. The patty was thick and juicy and cooked just right – it was really packed with flavour. And the melted cheese.. ahh.. was almost liquidy but the sides were crisp, almost like a cheese flavoured chip. The burger was a good size and they put in just enough filling so that nothing falls off while you eat it. My mouth is watering just thinking about it. 

It was certainly worth the trek to the other side of the city.. and yes, I would definitely go back again. Details for Huxtaburger can be found here http://www.huxtaburger.com.au/
