As much as I love a gourmet feast, there are just some days when nothing but a burger will cut it. Juicy meat, fresh salad and crunchy bun. Mmm. Clutching a slightly scrunched voucher from the entertainment book E & I headed to V Burger Bar to see what all the fuss was about. E is a major Grill’d fan so I had to keep reminding her we were trying somewhere new and to keep an open mind. She did.
The Vic Park store is bright, funky and open onto the street so you can dine inside or out. E & I chose a seat in the window, and pursued the menu. As much as the burgers looked very appealing, I went a little crazy with the sides menu, ordering both the giant Onion Rings ($5) and the Crumbed Mushrooms with Blue Cheese Sauce ($8). With that many extras I opted for the Mini Chicks Burger ($8.50) and still couldn’t fit it all in! E went with the Mini V – a mini classic beef burger ($8.50) so to help me with the sides, but she was no help either! So much tasty food.
My burger was fresh, well seasoned and tasty. It was something I could have made at home, but I really enjoyed it, without the dirty dishes! E’s Mini V was a tasty treat, she loved the ample serve of cheese oozing over the patty. The onion rings were crunchy and succulent. Served in a stack, we tried our hardest to get through the pile and failed. But my favourite part of the meal had to be the crumbed mushrooms. Mmm. Thick, juicy mushrooms in a tasty crumb with a strong blue cheese sauce. I probably could have devoured the entire bowl (but that’s not lady like).
It’s always nice to try a new restaurant, and we give V a thumbs up. And I’m still thinking about the mushrooms.
What is your ultimate burger?
