Score free burgers and more this Saturday
This is not a drill: these Melbourne venues are dishing free burgers and other offers this Saturday
Down in St Kilda, Trinity will be slinging an unlimited supply of cheeseburgers with the purchase of any drink from the venue’s bar. Choose from one of 12 beer taps, a sizeable cocktail menu or even a little vino, if you’re feeling like a fancy burger moment. The offer is on between noon-3pm with plant-based options also available for those not so meaty keen.
While not exactly free, Arbory Bar & Eatery has a burger offer happening on Saturday that comes pretty close. The team will be flipping juicy single cheeseburgers with a side of fries for only $5 a pop. We’re talking proper cheeseburgers: ketchup, mustard, onion and pickles. Is your mouth watering yet?
Down in Brunswick East, The B.East has turned National Burger Day into a mini festival. The venue is having a ticketed event with unlimited food and booze from noon-1.45pm. There’ll be all you can eat sliders, loaded fries, cocktail jugs, wine, beer and good times. And yes, veggie options too. Tickets are $45 per person and must be pre-purchased here.
Would you like fries with that?
Tomayto, tomahto. Potayto, potahto. Chips...chips? In the UK they'd look at you as if you had grown a third eye if you referred to crisps as chips, but here in Australia we've got an easygoing attitude to it all. Chips? Sure. Fries? Fine.
Whatever you call it, we've got the lowdown on the best slivers of deep-fried potato one can find throughout the city. Have them loaded with an array of toppings or a cholestrol-inducing amount of chicken salt, the world is your oyster here.
