Espresso and Matcha's Foodie Odyessy - Melbourne Day 8 Lunch (Part 1) : 8 Bit Burger

Knowing that I had caught the flu and wasn't feeling too well, my confidante did what all responsible friends would do. He took me to a burger joint first thing when I woke up. Which is why we headed to 8 bit burger for lunch.


 Per the theme of the restaurant, there was a retro style arcade game, and the menu was in proper 8 bit form, offering a number of burgers, hot dogs and sides.


Having ordered at the counter, we were given a number. There were quite a few seats in the restaurant, but we found one that faced the street.

Before long, our food came.

My companion ordered the Altered Beast, which contained beef, bacon, lettuce, cheese, onions, and bbq sauce. He was quite impressed by the quality of the burger, despite the sesame bun.

I ordered the double dragon, which contained double beef, double cheese, double bacon, pickles, lettuce and ketchup. The bun was toasted to quite a delicious crisp, but maintained a bit of fluffiness on the inside. Despite the fact that the patties were a bit thinner than expected, that didn't detract from the quality of the burger. The cheese though, was melted and glued the whole thing together, which I greatly enjoyed. 

We also had a portion of cheese bacon fries to share. Whilst not apparent in this photo, they were kind of diamond shaped, which in my opinion offers best of both worlds, ensuring a certain level of fluffiness on the inside, whilst having a decent amount of surface area to be deep fried. The bacon was very ample, but I would have liked a bit more cheese not just on the surface of the plate.
