8bit in the CBD has the same menu as its older sibling in Footscray. In addition to beef, fried-chicken and crumbed-mushroom burgers, the kitchen churns out classic artery-cloggers such as fries, shakes, dogs, tater tots and soft serve.
The Footscray location was frantic from the day it opened, but this spot is even more geared towards takeaway, or a very brief sit-down. There are blue-and-yellow Nintendo graphics on the walls, in keeping with the theme.
The CBD store is also slicker on the whole. Instead of peeling paint and exposed brick, there are polished terrazzo tiles on the floors and gleaming white tiles.
