08 Oct The South Melbourne Trader, South Melbourne
South Melbourne Trader’s Wagyu Burger has been highly regarded by many, but what really caught my eye on the menu today was The Euro: wagyu pattie, mushroom, rocket, tomato, pickled onion, horseradish cream all in a brioche bun. As well as the burger, my $15.70 also got me some hand-cut potato chips, which were tasty, crispy and not completely drenched in oil. One edge of the pattie was slightly overcooked, but thankfully not dry, but the rest was nice and juicy. There was a nice balance of acidity from the pickled onions, offset by the creamy mushrooms, that didn’t overpower the wagyu. It was an enjoyable burger that wasn’t overly complicated and pretentious.
