For us here at The Burger Adventure, the year 2013 was filled to the brim with a tonne of tantalising new burger joints. So before we could dive into sorting out our top 10 for the year, we needed to revisit the 2012’s most awesome burgers for a little quality control. While there were some surprises, both good and bad, for the greater good and for the burger loving public, it had to be done.

10. HUXTABURGER – 106 SMITH ST, COLLINGWOOD

“It felt like we copped a burger from the end of the production line as it was more like ‘sauce with a side of burger’: absolutely drowning in sauce and soggy.”

9. PARLOUR DINER – 64 CHAPEL STREET, WINDSOR

“From food truck to multiple locations around Melbourne, we knew these guys would go a long way. Very similar burger as before with the exception of a whole lot more mayo being added to the mix. ”

7. BELLE’S DINER – 150 GERTRUDE STREET, FITZROY

“A new bun, a pickled onion on top and fries come separately now. Plus, they spell their ‘Diner Burger’ with only one R now.”

6. TRUNK DINER – 275 EXHIBITION STREET, MELBOURNE

“Stacked a little higher these days with a sweeter brioche bun (that completely dissolved by the end). Still real good value though.”

5. ROCKWELL & SONS – 288 SMITH ST, COLLINGWOOD

“It’s got the exact same ingredients and flavours, however the burger has increased in size and is actually a challenge to finish.”

3. NSHRY – 129A BEACONSFIELD PDE, ALBERT PARK

“This would have to be one of the most difficult burgers to get right every time, yet they always manage to. There’s also now chips instead of onion rings as the side.”

2. BEATBOX KITCHEN – VARIOUS LOCATIONS, MELBOURNE

“Even as the years roll by the Raph Burger is still consistently awesome. It’s got that signature creamy flavour that keeps Melbourne coming back for more.”

1. THE MERRYWELL – CR CLARENDON STREET & CROWN RIVERSIDE, SOUTHBANK
