07 Feb Best Burger in Northcote: Mr Burger Food Truck.
Mr Burger is quickly expanding across Melbourne, and now Tasmania, as the best food truck for burgers and a heavy hitter in the best burger of Melbourne competition. With an emphasis on exceptional simplicity and quality ingredients, it’s not hard to see why.
The trucks just keep popping up. Since Myles Munro and Daragh Kan opened their first one and parked it in the CBD in November of 2012, Mr Burger, as their name aptly suggests, became the best food truck for a top quality burger in Melbourne. Thus the diaspora began, including a few stationery stores in and around the city. The first one opened close to home on Little Bourke Street, a reaction to stricter food truck permit laws in the big smoke and Mr Burger fans’ frothing desire to continue smashing burgers during their lunch breaks.
While the small takeaway joint in the city, as well as three other locations, are a surefire way to see what the fuss is about, marketing manager Maleik Edwards says that the best way to have a Mr Burger is the original way, from a truck.
“Our original motto was ‘Burgers, chips and drinks.’ We try to do the basics really well,” said Edwards. “The amount of work that we put into a perfectly simple burger speaks for itself.”
By that he means that these guys are ‘burger nerds’ who literally tested each component of their burgers before serving it to you, from the way they cut the onions to the way they grilled the patties. You should be flattered by their effort.
Want to find one of these bad boys for yourself? They have a handy “Find a Burger” section on their website that tells you in real time where their trucks are. For the efficient burger seekers, you can even place an order online and the store or truck closest to you will start grilling it up. Technology, my old friend.
You can also always bet to see the Mr Burger food truck four nights a week at Welcome to Thornbury. In case you didn’t already know, Munro and Kan, Melbourne’s most dedicated food truck enthusiasts, are also the founders of this permanent food truck and beer garden, so get into the trend in a typically Melbourne way–in an outdoor courtyard, in a happening suburb, with booze.
