Huxtaburger, Collingwood, Melbourne
I’ve been keen on this place since it opened. I know the burgers get some bad reviews – they’ve been called everything from overrated to disgusting to greasy to artery-clogging. Whatever. I think they’re delicious.
The standard Huxtaburger is a simple deal – its a delicious, toasted brioche bun filled with a pretty good beef pattie, tomato, cheese, lettuce, pickles, and the condiment trifecta: mustard, mayo and tomato sauce. For $9.00, it’s a pretty good deal. I can’t pick one single component of the burger that really stands out and makes it incredible, so I’ve got to put it down to a good mix of ingredients!
I’ll be honest – it’s nothing super special. It’s no Beatbox or Rockwell, and if you’re a clean, Grill’d type of burger lover, you’re probably not gonna enjoy this as much, but in my opinion, it’s still a very solid burger, and one I’ll no doubt continue to go back for every now and again!
