Urban Burger – Melbourne – Australia
Urban Burger Review
Urban Burger is one of the wave of new gourmet burger joints that have plagued Melbourne recently. This is a good trend in my opinion, who doesn’t enjoy a solid burger that isn’t MacDonald’s? Burgers are great, if done well.
The issue with a lot of these new era burger joints is that they’re trying to make a beautifully simple thing too complicated and it’s been the ruination of what is a hell of a good thing. It’s simple to make a good burger – high quality beef, sharp cheddar cheese, toasted buns, lettuce, tomato and pickles dressed as you like it. That’s it and that’s all. Urban Burger in my opinion is trying too hard. They offer a range of beef, chicken and veggie options in addition to sides, dips and drinks. The burgers are all dressed up in a range of unnatural ingredients and it results in sub-par burgers. In addition they lack real flavor and are on a less than great bun.
The thing that I didn’t realise when I ate there was that Urban Burger is a chain located throughout Victoria and Queensland. The food is alright in a pinch, but I wouldn’t go out of my way for their burgers. You can expect to pay around $15 – $20 for a sub-par, overcooked burger combo.
