After that visit, I thought Greasy Joe’s was the be-all-and-end-all of Melbourne burgers.
That was until Saturday night, when Wakes, myself and the Jones kiddies, well lubricated after a massive binge at the Caulfield races, decided we were ‘starving’ and that a burger was in order. And pronto. Things got off on the right foot when we snagged an executive car spot right out the front of Grill’d’s Brunswick Street branch. And they got even better when I checked out the menu.
I settled on a Mighty Melbourne burger, (grilled 100% lean beef, tasty cheese, crispy trim bacon, free range egg, a couple of slices of beetroot, with salad, relish and herbed mayo, a bargain at $10.50). Plus a serve of fries. Of course. All those Crownies at the races are bound to make you a little more peckish than normal. Wakes must have had a few drinks as well; her order was the same as mine.
Anyway, from what I remember, it was bloody fantastic. And when I wore the same suit to work today, there was not a drop of spillage in sight.
