Frosties-coated fried chicken, Jimmy's burgers and milkshake donuts – served in a rooftop train carriage

Just when you thought Melbourne couldn't get any more bonkers (cat cafés and skate bowl restaurants, we're looking at you), it did. You can now eat sugar-dusted, Frosties-crumbed fried chicken with deep-fried Pop Tarts or $6 burgers for breakfast, while sitting in a graffiti-covered Hitachi train plonked on top of a Collingwood office block. There are also donuts rolled in cinnamon and injected with milkshake-flavoured custard (flavours will change weekly).

The man to blame for your future artery-clogging is the patty-mad Jimmy (James Hurlston) behind Jimmy's Burgers – Jimmy's 3,000-strong burger journey, documented on Instagram. Jimmy fans may also have The Burger Book Victoria, which sold more than 10,000 copies, sitting on their sauce-stained coffee table.

Easey's isn't all fried food and beer, though. The craft brew won't be complaining when they see the bar taps, and – surprisingly – the health-food posse aren't neglected either: a wholefoods café is set to open on the ground floor this week. Fare will dish out gluten-free, plant-based, guilt-free alternatives to the meaty, greasy shenanigans served in a setting as sky-high as the calory count. Easey's does it.
