Summary

It wasn’t too long ago that Oakleigh was just a little Souvlaki-filled pocket next-door to Chadstone Shopping Centre. These days it’s a bustling little place where both locals and people from all over town come to enjoy coffee, cakes or a leisurely get-together. With this, the level of dining has lifted. New restaurants and bars are popping up all over. So of course there needed to a spot for a genuine burger joint. Mick Adam’s has stepped in to fill this void. They take their name from a Greek immigrant who opened Australia’s first Milk Bar in Sydney back in 1932. The Milk Bar was called the Black and White and so it looks like they’ve rolled with this theme throughout their restaurant – white tiles with black accents all over. Paying homage to the old days of diner eating they keep their menu pretty simple with burgers, shakes and fries. The hamburger options are mainly beef but they stretch to a crab and veggie option for more “modern” tastes. Surprisingly, there’s no signature “Mick burger” available so I went with the simplicity of the Cheesy Mike. It came on a brioche bun with a 150g grass fed beef patty, double cheddar, pickles, tomato and lettuce.

Comments
“By the look of hte place, it didn’t feel like fast food at all. But the burgers came out pretty damn quick. They didn’t look like anything too crash hot compared to some of the PR shots floating around the internet, but at least my melted cheese was a giant plus. Overall the burger was pretty balanced. But in this instance it meant nothing really stood out (apart from having half a tomato fall out at one point). For me, the patty was cooked spot on – it was super pink. The beef wasn’t bad either but it didn’t have a tonne of flavour. I wanted a more salty, fatty punch from it. I know it’s early days for these guys and maybe I went for the wrong burger. But I just felt there was something missing from this one (probably bacon). On a plus the staff were really friendly and it made it feel like a place you could graze on burgers and sides here for quite a while.”
