25 Jul Rockpool Bar & Grill (Melbourne)
There’s a pretty decent burger at the Rockpool Bar & Grill in Melbourne, which despite it’s ‘common man’ sounding name, is a little snooty. The benefit of snootiness however is that the service is impeccable.
Delivered on a slightly sweet brioche-style bun with a thick ‘Full Blood Wagyu’ pattie, bacon, gruyere cheese, caramelized onions and Zuni pickles – It’s hard to fault, but doesn’t quite pull the rabbit out of the hat. It’s not cheap at $25 – and it doesn’t come with fries. The house Bloody Mary – while delicious – was also bloody expensive. While I’m at it, if I may be so bold – perhaps lose the bull penis from the wall poster. Overall, worth a bite.
