Bath Lane Café – Legend Burger

13 Bath Lane
Bendigo

CAUTION: please continue eating (reading) at your own risk. You may become very very very full and get heartburn!Touted on the menu as the best burger in town (see also Half-Eaten’s review), I had quite the expectation for this “Legend Burger”.

After waiting a decent 15 minutes (fairly efficient given the traffic flow), I was greeted with an ENORMOUS (potentially double a double whopper) probably almost 15 x 15cm in size. The impressive mound of filling was sandwiched in between a huge toasted bun, held together with a silver knife stabbed vertically down the middle. The lean steak patty was slightly charred, and had a fresh beefy taste (excuse my non-illustrative description of beef…not sure how else to describe) on the palate and had a good bite to it without being chewy. Then there was a stack of fried omelette, many layers of crispy bacon, heaps of tomato & lettuce, and a sweet tomato relish.

eating it with knife & fork - disaster

Trying to eat the burger was a disaster. It was clearly too big to try to squish and bite. Resorting to knife and fork (not sure how such logic works, but that’s what I went for), I tried to slice eighths off the burger. No doubt that was also a complete failure. In the end I was virtually eating a salad of burger – what a mess.

If there had not been such a monster of a burger sitting on top of it, the bed of chips would have been a little more appetising, albeit the crispy shell and soft potato centre.

Food rating: Yummy! a pleasant and satisfying experience – simple but well constructed gourmet burger brought to “legendary” proportions. Please come with a VERY VERY empty stomach, and be prepared to kick back and rest for the next… uh 6hrs+. Other things on offer include a range of teas & tonics advertising relaxation, nice complexion etc (seems like a trend on bath lane).

    I like the knife plunging through it. But wait till you see the burgers I’ve been having in the US, will easily rival that burger. But these ones here are just considered Standard size.

  2. Wow, their burger is indeed legendary!!
