I eat a lot of fast food. I don’t really blog about it because it’s usually a pretty consistent experience and big brands don’t need the exposure (not that anyone reads my site anyway) but on the weekend I was returning from Box Hill to Narre Warren and stopped at a Red Rooster in Notting Hill because we needed food.
Anecdotal back-story (skip this if you hate my anecdotes)
One of my friends wanted to interview me for an assignment, but we live super far away from each other (Werribee and Thomastown if you’re super nosy). So we had to meet up in the city after work. We didn’t know where to go (needed to be able to sit down and also eat as it was dinner time) so I messaged a friend of mine who I consider the best food snob I know (he was a former Master Chef contestant, and though I don’t like reality TV, he obviously knows way more about food than me) and asked where is good to eat near Flinders Street Station. He suggested Abory Bar and Eatery and I had never heard of it before.
This is my first neutral review on here. A guy at work noticed a Groupon deal (or similar) for Burger Edge, where you could pay up front for X burgers later. I thought I probably shouldn’t do anything that will result in me having to go a specific burger place regularly (I already get 50% off at Hungry Jack’s for the rest of the year) so I decided against it and I’m pretty glad I did.

Every Friday I go out to lunch around Brighton with people from work. This time my boss’s wife came with us, and we needed to find a place that offered gluten-free options to cater for her dietary needs.
Rupert and the Fig was the first place we found that offered gluten-free options on their menu. Some of the guys from work have been there before- they mentioned that they make good burgers and really good coffee. In particular, one guy’s wife gets her coffee every morning from Rupert and the Fig before she catches the train. Continue reading Rupert and the Fig Review Brighton
This is one of my favourite burger places in Melbourne’s Western Suburbs. It combines two of my favourite things- fast food and video games. I have only been here a few times, and I’m a bit disappointed in myself for that. Continue reading Eat8bit / 8bit Burgers Footscray Review
OK. I don’t know how fair it is to review a burger that I designed myself, because in theory, I should definitely thoroughly enjoy it by default. So instead, I’m reviewing the “experience” of this process, with mention to some anecdotes as well. Continue reading Hogan’s Corner McDonald’s Create Your Taste Burger Review
I like Nando’s, always have. Always will. Whilst it’s never really the first place that springs to mind when I’m hungry, I still end up there several times a year. I often go to the Point Cook Nando’s with my friends, as they love mild-hot sauce on their chicken. Continue reading Nando’s Werribee Review
