Andrew’s Burgers CBD
The grill at the original Andrew’s Burgers in Albert Park has been firing since 1939. This second outpost in the CBD, around the corner from the Queen Victoria Market, was 70 coming.
It has more space, a larger kitchen, booths, neon and a custom-made cast-iron grill.
The menu, though, hasn’t changed a bit. The Andrew’s Burger, with egg, bacon, cheese, grilled tomato, cooked onions, lettuce and sauce, still forms the cornerstone. There’s still the Sanchez (with hot sauce and jalapeno), and the Five-O (pineapple and beetroot). And the buns are decidedly not brioche. Instead they’re an old-fashioned, white, toasted bun, which holds the ingredients together.
Pappas is committed to serving what’s become an unfashionable burger – big, savoury and with enough ingredients to drop all over your shirt. The biggest difference between an Andrew’s burger and any other is the size of the patties – these are a lot bigger – 170 grams.
There is Dal Zotto wine on tap and canned beer.
