21 Oct Captain Melville, Melbourne CBD Take 2
At the moment, Captain Melville is having a special on Mondays and Tuesdays where their burger and parma are reduced to $17. The idea is that people would vote on their favourite, and the winning dish will continue to the next round.
I’m not a fan of parmas and what I really came here to eat was the Captain’s burger (wagyu, bacon, cheese, Yarra Valley egg, pickles, soft bun, hand cut chips, normally $21). The only modification I made was to have only one slice of cheese instead of two, because I thought the double cheese with egg would be too rich for me.
It came with some fat and crispy chips on the side, which weren’t overly salty. The sweet, toasted bun tasted like the one used in their sliders and the whole burger was unsurprisingly moist, since the double wagyu patties were almost constantly dripping with juices. Unfortunately the juices did make the bottom half of the bun a bit soggy by the time I picked it up, but that was forgivable. The pickle, egg and also the salty crunch from the bacon gave it multiple dimensions of flavour and I quite enjoyed it.
