Hammer & Tong, Fitzroy

So I finally came to the home of the much lauded soft shell crab burger and ordered…a soft shell crab burger. Not to be boring and predictable, but I’ve been hanging out for this one for a long time. I’m pleased to say that it was indeed very enjoyable: soft and sweet brioche together with  moist and juicy crab meat, lifted by coriander and shallots. The coleslaw and mayo also helped to balance out the slightly salty crab. I was happy to find that the particular crab used in mine was quite fat and meaty, though I did think it the burger would be even better if it were a bit crispier. Now that I’ve tried their claim to fame, I’d love to return and try some of the other things on their menu!
