Tasty Burger

diamond in the rough

I must admit that I was sceptical having been given only vague directions by a friend, "You want a tasty burger? then head down to the new fish and chips store on Barry Rd, it's the clean looking one".

Notorious Barry Rd in Broadmeadows, with it's strip of grimy take away joints of varying but generally dubious quality. Once with friends we'd figured out that everone we knew had got food poisoning at least once from Barry and with the main plant just across the road that row of shops was prob costing Ford more than half a mil in sick days each year...

But a potential tasty burger encounter is not to be shunned for fear of E.Coli and this intrepid reporter decided to head there for lunch. Finding the place wasn't hard in the end, certainly cleanliness was enough to distinguish it from its neighbours (even if the name, Barry Rd Fish & Chips, was not). I ordered burger with the lot and on impulse dug out an extra 50c to turn it into a Pineapple Deluxe which turned out to be the best 50c I've ever spent. I was immediately pleased to see the patty freshly formed from waiting mince mix and a big squirt of traditional tom sauce on the bun (none of that pansy pesto or aioli here thankyou very much). The final burger when it arrived was steaming hot and full of flavour... verdict? definately a tasty burger! not only that, but for an extra extra 50c they'll give you enough chips to induce a coronary, joy!

Barry Rd Fish and Chips, I salute you!
