V burger Bar are a new(ish?) burger joint towards the bottom of the Vic Park cafe strip on Albany Highway. We tried it out because 1) we were in the market for a fast food lunch in Vic Park and 2) we wanted to try something from the Entertainment Book. V Burger Bar have a good selection of different burgers – including 2 different vege options, but ultimately neither of us could go past the Pepperizo with chorizo and grilled capsicum. I *loooved* the grilled capsicum in this burger – and the chorizo was a great addition too. The burger was pretty good – not too greasy and overall it was a very satisfying and messy experience (it’s a big burger). We couldn’t decide between chips and onion rings, so we got both. The chips were so-so – they had an interesting crsipy coating but were a little on the cold side and (to be honest) I’d have had a little more salt on them. The onion rings, however, were delish! Unlike Hungry Jacks/Burger King, these were real onion rings – not something that has been reconstituted into regular rounds.
At $10-$15 (plus ~$5 for chips and a drink) a V burger is probably twice the price or more of an equivalent Hungry Jacks/MacDonalds meal. However, my V burger left me feeling *full*, rather than with a slight sense of shame and cravings for a further sugar/salt/fat fix. I’m not sure how often we’ll be back for more burgers, but I suspect V Burger Bar will make it even less likely that we’ll be visiting HJ/Maccas anytime in the near future – and that’s perfectly ok with me!
