I thought I’d follow up on Huxtaburger with another burger review, just as the spring’s coming in and I’m starting to crave burgers more and more. The first time I went to Andrew’s was sometime in July with my boyfriend as we were both out in the city; and I’d always wanted to try it but just needed someone to drag along with me. Once again, it’s just a short tram ride from the CBD on the no.1 tram (to South Melb. Beach) – which stops right outside the place but just be mindful of where you need to get off.
There’s only minimal seating inside the place – four or so bar stools along one side and no outdoor seating which surprised me as the place is only very small. While ordering, we noticed heaps of people coming in to get takeaway orders – most likely people who work around the area coming in for lunch.
The burgers here are quite simple, you choose your meat and then what additional condiments you would like; though the
- plain beef burger (at $7.50) comes with lettuce, onions and tomato sauce.
- Extras include egg, bacon, tomato, cheese, pineapple and beetroot – for $1 each, or 3 for $2.50;
- or you can opt for “the Lot” containing egg, bacon, tomato and cheese for $10.50.
My boyfriend just opted for the plain beef burger (how boring), while I got mine with egg, bacon and cheese, pictured above, though why I didn’t just go for “the Lot” puzzles me – but I sure will get that next time I go! The burger was absolutely delicious, probably one of the best burgers I have ever eaten – with the ratio of everything just perfect so you could actually taste what was in the burger. The sauce was the right amount while the cheese melted perfectly on top of beef pattie, which in itself was juicy and not greasy at all. The bun complemented the burger well without being too heavy.
The verdict: From what I’ve tried, I would definitely head back to Andrew’s if it was question between that and Huxtaburger; though I’d have to wait for a day with good weather to go there. Just make sure you have a plan of where to eat them – I’d suggest heading down to the beach (four more stops on the tram, or you can walk down) during the summer, or going to the park which is right around the corner.
