It’s a pretty typical type of thing. See if Northside digs it, then bring it to the South. Like Huxtaburger and Mr Burger, Brother Burger is now slinging meat and buns on both sides of the Yarra. The new South Yarra shop was once famed Greco’s Restaurant, where the late night coffee and cake was worth the $18. Now a whole new type of patron arrives, ready for a ridiculous amount of craft beer and maybe a burger, or two. All of their beef burgers are made with 100% South Australian Wagyu and their buns are all baked in house – a pretty good way to get in our good books. They also offer a wide range of Vego and non-beef options, plus a tonne of spiked milkshakes if you’re in the mood for a sweet nightcap. Having eaten the Lot at their Fitzroy shop, the plan was to try something new. I grabbed the Hot Stuff that came on a seeded burger bun with a Wagyu beef patty, double bacon, jalapenos, cheese, pickles, mayo and chilli-jam.

“I wasn’t expecting much ever since our last Adventure here. But new burger, new day right. The Hot Stuff didn’t look like much. Frankly I thought, “This is it?” I snapped away and noticed my eating buddies had basically finished before I even started. It was soft and easy to eat. The jalapenos popped up every now and then, but I liked how they were balanced out by some nice creamy sauce. The pickles threw me off though. They tasted more like cucumbers, making it taste like something you’d eat at a friends bbq when they try to impress you with their skills. I didn’t mind this though. But I reckon its a little steep for what you get. I bet they’re paying an arm and a leg for rent so that doesn’t surprise me. It’s not far from home for me so I might go back for a boozy afternoon.”

Man, that bun is certainly dwarfing the patty
