Burger Kitchen – Moonee Ponds

IMG_2684

Can we have a minute and appreciate how great social media is and how much it’s done for food in the last 5 years or so?! There used to be a disconnect between the restaurant and the customer. The only way for us to be connected was through visiting, word of mouth and of course Urbanspoon reviews! Old school bloggers will know.

These days, we can follow new restaurants that hasn’t even opened yet, long-time establishments and they can tempt us with their goodies at a swipe of a thumb! With everyone constantly connected, we’re more closer to that burger or chicken wing than we ever thought. If you got burgers, post a shyte load of food pics online and you’re based in the West – expect a visit from me!

Laurie Dee’s – Epping

IMG_2665

So, I’m currently on a burger bender (again) and I don’t know how to stop it. Frankly, I’m not sure if I want it to stop. Maybe I’m transcending beyond my human shell and a few burgers away from attaining enlightenment. Or my arteries are clogged beyond comprehension and blocking all rational thought leading to my ultimate demise, death by patty.

Yours truly was being a decent human being and volunteered his time with Mr. Brunswick towards cleaning certain lakes. Long story, we got hella hangry. We also scheduled ourselves that Laurie Dee’s was on the way home from our volunteer day. I wish I was this prepared when food isn’t involved.

Side note: Sorry! I know I’ve been away for a month. I was in Vietnam for a few weeks (I have some pics of the food I ate there on Instagram!). Back to normal schedule this week!

Piccolo Me – CBD – Russell St [Lunch Crawl]

IMG_2643

Have you ever seen something so inherently genius that you can’t fathom the fact it has never existed before? Piccolo Me is not just another cafe quenching the unending thirst of Melbourne’s coffee addicts. No, Piccolo Me holds the answer for exactly what happens when two things that are awesome combine and create a product that is diabolically sinful.

Piccolo holds the Croissant burger. I’ll let that sink in for a moment. Folks, this is how super villains are born. This is Piccolo Me’s origin story and The Hungry Moustache is going to eat it.

La Roche – St Kilda

IMG_2630

I did mention I was going to eat my way around St Kilda a lot more often and here we are! I’m a simpleton, if you take great photos of fried chicken, burgers and/or pizzas on your Instagram feed one thing is going to happen. You’re going to get a follower who stalks you for at least a one month probation period before he drags his rag-tag group of mates in an attempt to decimate your menu.

Keyword: attempt.

La Roche stands on the corner of the foot traffic heavy, Acland Street. It’s no surprise that they’re packed to the rafters on a lazy Sunday afternoon but we did manage to nab a table outside. Copious amounts of face stuffing, here we come!

Brooklyn Depot – CBD – Lonsdale St. [LUNCH CRAWL]

IMG_2533.JPG

Before I start this review I want to take a second and acknowledge a gentlemen who works at Brooklyn Depot named Scott for his sheer professionalism and the outstanding service he provided. Long story short, I reserve a table for the wrong time and below the minimum people required for a booking yet Scott was still able to sneak us in. This was during the lunch peak, mind you. You’re a legend mate.

Bromance with Scotty a side, I noticed Brooklyn Depot roughly 2-3 weeks ago. It was properly buzzing with the lunchtime crowd despite only recently joining the ranks of numerous eateries in the CBD. Brooklyn Depot has stores in Queensland, New South Wales and now we finally get a slice of the pie in Victoria. With such a drool-worthy menu and a great location for work lunches – you know we had to do a Lunch Crawl.

Mammy’s Boy – St Kilda

IMG_2520

I confess, I’m one of the biggest Mummy’s boy out there.

How can anyone NOT be a Mummy’s boy? I feel that most males are more inclined to their Mother’s for a variety of reasons. They’re the first and most important woman of your life. She is not only responsible for keeping you fed and alive (Excellent job by the way, Mum) but the critical figure in my life for creating an appetite that I often find myself eating beyond my needs and love every bit of it.

There is nothing greater than selfless parental love, so cherish every little bit of time you have! Unless you meet a really great chip shop and they fry the best damn chips ever. In which case, run away with said chip shop, marry them and forget your parents! They’ll be heartbroken. Maybe, die a little bit inside but I’m sure they’ll understand once you tell them about the chip story.

Long story short, love your mum’s and my mum most definitely makes better Vietnamese food than yours. (Challenges accepted)
