CBD I have been looking forward to this one. Ever since I knew I was going to be moving to Melbourne, I started my research into burger places here. @grandtrailerpark was one that caught my eye straight away – the style of the burgers, the awesome menu, and the restaurant décor – everything was pulling me towards it; and I finally got myself down here with my team – thanking the boss for letting us have a half day!
Being Trump’s biggest fan(!) I went straight in with the Francis Underwood, and added a mac n cheese patty – that one is for Carrie Underwood, the saucy Blonde! Other than that, we’ve got double beef patties, American cheddar, American mustard, and the usual greens.
The #meat is made using three different cuts of beef, and cooked on the rarer side of medium. Let me tell you now, the beef patties are packing some serious quality here; they’ve got the meat combination just right, if not a little more to the fatty side, but I am not complaining; the meat is tender, releasing a juicy flavoursome punch with every bite – very much like the President’s punchlines. The meat is seared until brown on the outside but middle showing just a hint of pink, the bacon is exactly as crispy as I like it, it is as if I was in the Oval Office with the Pres himself cooking this one up. The Mac n Cheese Patty – cheesy but with a delicious, silky, creaminess to it, but just a little too hot for the rest of the burger – exactly how I feel about Carrie.
The #bun was a brioche bun, lightly toasted, topped with poppy and sesame seeds. The bun had a nice crunch to it and didn’t feel over-indulgent as it wasn’t too heavy on the butter or the sweetness – this is a true representation of Frank – taking no sweet or buttery BS, unless he’s providing it himself. Anyway, the bun did an excellent job of holding things together, even with that extra mac n cheese patty I got put in there!
The #mess was very limited, partly because this burger needed more of that special burger sauce in there – my only other gripe.
A slightly too hot mac n cheese patty, and not enough sauce my only gripes for what is a burger that gets my vote for another term in the white house! 9/10
