Mr & Mrs Anderson a new cafe which opened in December 2016 which makes it quite fresh on the blockin Hawthorn East. With a focus on sustainability and the majority of produce that is used are from their farm in Moe and straight onto the plate in the cafe. What’s even more impressive? The chef comes from Michelin starred restaurants and have worked in amazing Australian eateries including Attica, 3 bags full and circa just to name a few. The chef is bringing fine dining to cafes and it definitely shows in Mr & Mrs Anderson.
Since we’re finally moving in, we decided to check out the local eats and I’ve been eyeing Rocco’s Burger Cafe every time we drove past and FINALLY we had the opportunity to casually drop by to stuff our faces. It was quite busy when we went at lunch time but when we stepped into the cafe, we were greeted by smiling staff (even though they were super duper busy). You can definitely tell that it’s a family-owned cafe because they pay extra attention to you and they had a different kind of friendliness to them.
Mr D has been home alone lately and we needed to go do his weekly groceries. Of course we were hungry (when are we not?) and lucky for us, there was a burger joint right next to coles (coinkidink? I think not!). Top Bun, with a name like this, we must determine how top these buns were.
The burger scene in Melbourne has popped up like wild fire and there’s a new bad boy in town that’s been open for quite some time and is serving asian fusion burgers. Welcome to The Burger Block in Kew. Located on the main road, I was quite worried about the parking. Do not fear, there’s plenty of street parking so don’t panic.
We were in Noosa Heads having a fam bam adventure and we were all getting hungry. Since we all came up to visit Baby A, he had the honours of picking our lunch spot. After walking up and down the strip of festivities, he laid his eyes on Betty’s Burgers. So we rushed in and was seated quite quickly.
I crashed Miss Mousey’s date to watch Zootopia (OH EM GEE! It was AWESOME SAUCE!) and so before we watch, we must feast. Since we didn’t have enough time, we opted for something close to the cinemas, Grill’d.
Mr Italian Stallion decided to crash Miss Curly Fries and my date and suggested to hit up the famous secret burgers at Dandenong Pavilion (Yep, you’ve guessed it, it’s in DANDENONG!). It was spacious inside and you could either get a booth (SCORE!) or a table. Since it was only 3PM, it wasn’t busy at all.
Whilst in Croydon hanging out, I was getting a bit peckish so we wandered around until I laid my eyes on a burger joint – The Local Burger Co. Mr D could not refuse a burger eatery so we marched our way in. It’s really cosy inside and if it’s full, there’s always outdoor seating too.
The newest bad boys in town – Little Oscar and they’re doing korean influenced american burgers (what??!!) and have been opened for 2 months (still babies!) in Brunswick. We were greeted very warmly by the staff and was shown to our table. They had a lot going on with ropes being part of the decor which I thought was pretty cool. They also have a live DJ and music so you know this place will be pumping!
Gemelli Cafe Grill is the new eatery at Point Cook offering burgers and steaks from the grill and aims to use local produce and give back to the community (naww). I was invited by Yolk Agency and Gemelli Cafe Grill to attend their opening launch and all opinions expressed are my own.
