Burger Project is a child from Rockpool Dining Group (Neil Perry GUYSSSSS!!!) and so when I have a chance to be in the city, of course I went and tried out Burger Project. We stopped by the Bourke Street one where it’s located smack bang in the middle of office buildings and surrounded by other cool looking restaurants, it does get busy after work. Walking in we were greeted by friendly staff ordered at the front counter.
We came at happy hour and I got a cider for $5! BARGAIN!!! They had The Apple Thief and that was amazing!!
Cider – $8.50 (Happy hour price $5)
We got the salted caramel thickshake which was creamy my gosh it was oh so good!!! The chippies were crunchy but we weren’t asked which salt we wanted to have on them which was disappointing.
Salted Caramel Thickshake – $7.90; Large Chips – $5.90
The cheese beef burger light and not greasy. We felt that something was missing, a little more sauce perhaps? The beef was cooked perfectly and was oh so tender that fell apart once you bite into it.
Cheese Beef Burger – $11.50
Grass fed beef, cheese, onion, pickles, tomato, lettuce & secret sauce
It was loaded with a gazillion pickles too!
The magic mushroom burger, well, tasted like mushrooms. Not that I don’t love mushrooms but there wasn’t anything special about it at all. It was quite average and just didn’t jump out at me which is a shame because I ADORE mushroom burgers.
Magic Mushroom – $11.90
Crumbed confit mushroom, cheese,onion, pickles, tomato, lettuce & secret sauce
I really wanted to love Burger Project but unfortunately there’s plenty of burger places in Melbourne which excels the burger game and I will most likely visit those places before I return to Burger Project.
