Zombie Burger – 5 Shakespeare Grove, St Kilda, Victoria, Australia

One late night with a few drinks under their belt, two friends Lawrence Gozlan and Paul Sanders decided that it was time for something a little different: Hamburgers + Zombies. The undead are everywhere these days – all over our televisions, costume parties, cemeteries and now with us as we sit down to lunch. Located just off the main stretch of busy Acland st, St Kilda, the guys have used the expert skills of street artist Andrew Bourke to spray the place head to tow in Evil Dead inspired graff. Feeling like a couple of zombies ourselves, we tore into their signature Zombie Burger that came with fire-grilled grass-fed beef, beer caramelized onions, melted American cheese, dill pickle, vine-ripened tomatoes, oakleaf lettuce, topped with American mustard, special ZB ketchup, signature ZB mayo all on a toasted brioche bun.

“Why try and re-invent the wheel when you can just imitate the best. This came out a spitting replica of Shake Shack, which isn’t a bad thing to aspire towards. As we all know looks aren’t everything, so I was pleasantly surprised with this super soft, juicy burger experience. The bun was light and fluffy but held up well against the juicy seasoned patty and copious amounts of sauce. The lettuce and tomato gave just a slight crunch and the Kraft single was melted oh so well. It’s not exactly Shake Shack but hey, you have to start somewhere.”
“This was a nice manageable burger that wasn’t too messy and kept things really simple. The highlights were definitely caramelised onions, the lettuce, cheese and of course the flame grilled pattie. Being a local I think I’ll put up with crowds of Irish backpackers and grab myself another. The chips were fresh cut and good.”
“This place smelt like a fad. I didn’t really get it. Sure zombies are awesome: give me baseball bat and a newspaper that reads “Undead Apocalypse” and I’ll be the first guy rushing the gates of the morgue with a smile on my face. All smoke and mirrors aside, the burger was decent. I really liked what the burger had going for it but the high quality beef pattie tasted like it was overloaded with Worcestershire sauce and that didn’t do it for me. I wanted it to be more beefy than saucy. This burger was good and I’m sure it will have plenty of return customers.”

Shake Shack is damn good, I am expecting a lot when I visit here.

one of the freshest burgers i have had recently. most feel nearly too oily or the bread can overwhelm. biting into this the first thing you taste is the veges, sauce(whcih is just the right strength to not overpower but enhance) and then the main ingrediantts. The beef and cheese come close after the initial fresh taste and adds just the right amount of flavour. the bun finishes any oily flavours.

only negatives are the bun can be a little too sweet when had near the end of the burger because it is bigger then whats inside so you end up finishing off with too much bun and the patty i think is a little small and overseasoned,

still one of my more favourite burgers. especially if you find most burgers too oily normally.

Thank god they are gone, but now in their spot is Mamas Boy and its the best burger in Australia, I am not kidding, way better than Merywell at the Crown or even Perths Burger Bistro. As a yank and lover of all things grease, this place has nailed it, better than In-And-Out in the States, Chips are made fresh and are a must try. Had both burgers on the menu EXCELLENT and fairly priced $13
