On Tuesday night, Arbory Bar and Eatery was crowned victorious in TimeOut Melbourne’s inaugural Battle of the Burgers.
It is no surprise to any Melbournian that we love our burgers! Over the last month, voters from around the city narrowed it down to the top four finalists – 8bit, Mr Burger, Arbory Bar and Eatery and Mammy’s Boy.
The final was held at Fancy Hank’s BBQ on Tuesday August 16, where lucky ticket holders were given half a whopping burger from each of the four finalists, as well as plenty of chips and McCracken’s Amber Ale to tide you over.
Then, you got to cast your vote as to who had produced the tastiest burger. The winner received a $3000 advertising package with TimeOut as well as flights to Sydney to beat the Sydneyside winner in the ultimate Burger Battle.
Personally, while all four burgers were delicious and Arbory were certainly a worthy winner, 8bit’s American cheesey burger was a favourite of ours.
