YOMG – 65-67 Kingsway, Glen Waverley, Victoria, Australia
Yo My With Cheese
Dress Code:
6 minutes
Would we recommend:

Frozen yoghurt and burgers aren’t generally something you’d ever link. But with these two being some of the biggest food trends to hit Melbourne over the last couple of years, it isn’t a surprise that there’s now a place you can get them at the same place. YOMG (Yo My Goodness) started out in 2013 as a funky little fro-yo joint in Mordialloc. Knowing they were onto a good thing, with the place packed with sugar crazed Tweens and anxious First-Daters they’ve now spread to six locations, even as far as Cairns. But their fro-yo store in Glen Waverley has a difference: it’s a burger joint too. There’s a lot on offer with eleven burgers on the menu that go from your standard cheeseburger to the vego-friendly potato cake burger. Enjoy your fries five different ways from classic to smothered in pulled pork or opt in for a shake done old school or fancy-like. It’s hard to get a seat in there most nights but I patiently stalked three tables simultaneously waiting for a chance to eat my burger in a civilised manner. Of course, when my buzzer started to vibrate I went up and grabbed the Yo My with Cheese that came on a glazed sesame seed bun with a Grass Fed Angus patty, cheese, lettuce, tomato, ketchup and secret sauce.

“What the hell was I in for? Having been a little anti on the Fro-Yo Movement (seriously just get some ice cream people) I really wasn’t sure how a burger was ever going to be good here. But, with delightful surprise, it was great. A lot of what they did with it reminded me of Raph’s Beatbox creation, but with a mean dill/tangy sauce thing going on. It was really well balanced – a beefy patty with hints of creaminess from the American cheese to the sweetness in the tomato and ketchup. It’s busy as all hell but actually worth it. The other nice thing is that it feels like they really put their burgers first, leaving all that fro-yo nonsense at the back of the shop where it belongs.”

The biggest problem with the burgers here is the cheese. It’s too much like the cheese you get on a burger from McDonalds. If they changed it to a nice tasty cheese then i would also agree with the ‘definitely’ recommendation.

Pretty disappointed with my Yomg experience

It was super busy so I opted for take away which still took about 25 minutes.

I finally got my order with an apoligy for the wait and I was on my way. I get to my destination and onxe I open the burger wrapper, I see they have given me the wrong burger/order.

I was too far away to go back. Ordered a Kingsway and got a pulled pork thing? Ripped off.

Chips were rather good but based on the burger, I’d be very reluctant to go back
