Melbourne's now seeing some gorgeous days. And with the sun setting after 8pm, it's the perfect time for us northsiders to cycle across the river for Andrews Hamburgers. Since our previous post three years ago, the gloriously massive and messy vegie burgers have increased in price from $7 to $7.50 - that's a hike I can handle.
Vegie souvlaki are now also available for $8.50 apiece. They boast extra yoghurt and spices, but feature the same vegie patties and risk-of-spilling-everything-down-your-shirtfront as the vegie burgers.
Andrews' old-fashioned charm is no Melbourne secret, so be prepared for a bit of a wait and zero space to eat in. I found myself happily occupied for the requisite 20 minutes just observing the staff's speedy and systematic use of their small open kitchen, and on a bright and breezy day the oversized traffic island/tiny park across the street offers all the al fresco dining facilities (grass, bench chairs, bins) you need.
