Woven, 175b Stephen Street, Yarraville. Phone: 9973 5926
In the past year or so, Bennie and I have enjoyed some good/OK burgers.
But, we confess, it’s difficult to recall any that have had us pumped up with unbridled enthusiasm, burger lust and fired-up determination to return to the scene of the crime with haste.
Perhaps we have become dulled by average products written about with what will serve the informational needs of our readers in mind, rather than our own immediate burger gratification?
So today, after the regular Saturday kung fu outing, we are trying an experiment – going somewhere we like and admire.
Somewhere we trust to turn on a truly great burger for us.
Woven has made a happy home of the area on Stephen Street and a good distance from the throngs of the village.
Previous posts concerning this fine establishment are these days so long in the tooth, I’m not even going to bother posting links.
Woven has not, however, become a regular haunt for us, save for occasional road coffees.
But we do keep an eye out for its specials on Facebook – and it’s one of them that is our mission today.
We are not disappointed.
Our matching double chipotle cheeseburgers come with two Black Angus beef patties, double American cheese, double bacon and chipotle/lime slaw in milk buns.
Dear readers, do not blanche at the admission fee of $25 – they are worth every cent.
All is terrific, even if the cheese is overwhelmed by a bevy of surrounding and strong flavours.
The slaw has just right amount of spice kick.
And our burgers come with twice-cooked, hand-cut chips included.
Now THAT’S a burger.
We’re told the Woven burger specials list burgers change on a pretty much fortnightly basis, though a more orthodox burger is a menu fixture.
