If you were burger deprived in childhood, weep no more - Mr Burger is here!
This is one spiffy food truck operation, with two trucks dotting Melbourne now. You'll find one semi-permanently tucked off Therry Street near the Vic Market, and one regularly roving around Melbourne including the western suburbs!
I love their clean, zippy design. Ordering's a toss up between the "classic"Mr Burger with mustard, mayo and more, the Mr Meat with bacon and BBQ sauce, or the Mr Veg with a falafel patty.
Fries are pretty standard but hot, salty and crisp - everything you could want!
I reckon these are damn fine burgers. Both patties that day were a little pink, which I like - it's popular in the States to have your hamburger done medium. Often Aussie burgers taste like the sum of their parts, with dry-ish meat patty and chunky lettuce and tomato. Not so at Mr Burger - everything gooshes together to make a juicy, meaty party in your mouth. Love!!!
But what's this? Two food trucks for the price of one! Dos Diablos have also starting spreading their brand of tasty hellfire across the West.
Loving the vintage-y truck, complete with crossed pitchforks at the front. Everything here's gluten free...
...and we love a pulled pork or "carnitas" taco, well-seasoned meat loaded generously onto a proper corn tortilla and dressed up with tomatillo salsa and a little shredded cabbage. Wickedly good fries, too, tossed with seasoned salt and squirted with spicy ketchup.
Best of all - tomorrow, Saturday 9th Feb, Mr Burger will be at Pilgrim Street Park and the Horsey Park! (Bristow Reserve, Seddon and Shorten Reserve, West Footscray). As for Dos Diablos, keep your eye on their Facebook page for today and tomorrow's tasty incarnations!
