It’s a bird! It’s a plane! Jokes. It’s just the Burgerman.
Born with a natural ability – a superpower, if you will – to sort the wheat from the chaff, the heritage Angus from the cheap offcuts and the brioche from the garden variety bun, Burgerman considers it his duty to provide Melbourne’s populace with a field guide to tastebud heaven.
From its supposed origins in a Texas canteen to its commercial explosion in the late twentieth century, the humble burger has finally moved forward and stepped up to its rightful artisanal status. Truly, there’s never been a better time to experience the undeniable satisfaction of a hearty wad of animal and plant matter on a bun.
Burgerman looks for innovation, uniqueness and rarity in a burger. Traditionalism is all well and good, but what does that really mean when we’re talking burgers? After all, the formula is hardly set in stone.

What’s your definition of a burger?
Burgerman defines a burger as being in the ballpark of the classic patty on a bun situation. This definition stretches pretty broadly, but the dish must be savoury and the bun composed of something at least resembling bread.
