Gasometer IX

11/11/2013: We're sad to report the closure of our beloved Gasometer.

September 4, 2012

Brother Burger made a nice change from our usual Gasometer dinner on Cherchez la Femme night, but I'm not sure we would have strayed if I had remembered that Gaso are celebrating their second birthday with a best-of menu! The chicken burger, Rueben and chicken-waffles - some of our favourites - all made the cut.

I did find room for dessert, at least - I took my table number into the salon and was courteously delivered a strawberry cheesecake pop ($10) while the panel got sexy. One bite sent biscuit crumbs spraying everywhere and I was thankful for the napkin and spoon that came with it. The strawberry chunks were a highlight, supple and sweet without any iciness.


It might be time to create a dedicated Gasometer label, since we've already visited one, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight times. Since our last post it's had more veg*n visitors: Mel of Veganise This! loved the pastrami burger and then took Theresa the tropical vegan there for a meet-up. Johanna of Green Gourmet Giraffe spent a pleasant Saturday afternoon there, and wander cookie also counts it amongst their favourites.

Accessibility: The Gasometer has a small step on entry. The tables are crowded in some areas but the booths and tables closest to the entry are relatively spacious. Ordering and payment occurs at a high counter. Male and female toilets are on the same level as everything else but are not particularly spacious.


  1. We drove past Gasometer the other week and we were going to stop by because of all your wonderful reviews but ended up at Las Vegan! Next time... :)

    1. Ah well, as long as you had fun at Las Vegan there's nothing lost I guess. :-)

  2. Thanks so much for linking to my blog post about Gasometer! :) It's definitely one of my favourites.
    I love reading about all the places you eat at in Melbourne, it makes me miss home a bit! I'm in the USA for a year so I'm definitely enjoying some amazing food. Hopefully I'll get round to posting photos soon!

    1. You're welcome, wandercookie! I bet you're trying all sorts of cool new stuff even if you're far away from Gasometer. :-)
