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.

This seems your classic case of inner city gentrification and a battle for the next shocking dining experience. The shock starts with the 5 flights of stairs to climb to reach the disused train carriage at the top: your dining carriage. This isn’t a light lunch expect burgers, mac n cheese, potato cakes, dim sum, and more. Pair that with pint size cocktails to boot. Ultimately, the prices are reasonable and the food is good so we can forgive them for the eccentric setting.
