F&L News: St Kilda Burger Bar pub drive-through at the Grosvenor Hotel is the first of its kind (Melbourne)

Melbourne has a new burger haven and it might not be exactly what punters had in mind. The launch of the St Kilda Burger Bar (STKBB) at the Grosvenor Hotel on 15th June 2015 will see this city experiencing its first ever pub drive-through burger joint.

Situated alongside the Grosvenor Hotel’s flourishing pub, as well as the Grosvenor Grocery and Bottle Shop drive-through, the STKBB is set to be a hit with those longing for fast, quality food. According to Rabih Yanni, who took over the Grosvenor Hotel in late 2014, “We will make your burger to order, giving you a burger that’s fresh and hot without a lengthy wait”.

Grosvenor Hotel’s head chef, Paul Tyas, is committed to sourcing, ageing and preparing premium cuts of beef. This translates perfectly across to his venture into the STKBB, with burgers made of 100% certified grass-fed Angus beef and served on Lievito milk buns.

There is a range of options including combo deals and junior burgers for the kids. If you’re indecisive, then STKBB’s signature burger ‘The Grosvenor’ is a good place to start, with layers of streaky bacon, grandma’s ketchup and a secret white sauce. Those after more of a kick simply can’t go past the ‘The Plugger’, featuring double beef, bacon, sriracha mayonnaise and a hash brown. Vegetarians won’t be left hungry either as the ‘Mr Fun Guy’ oozes flavour with a hearty roasted Portobello mushroom and gruyere cheese.

With a range of craft beers available and desserts including ‘Saint’s Halo’ – a marshmallow, raspberry jam and chocolate biscuit delight – STKBB is set to be a burger joint like no other. By all means, drop in for the good vibes at this iconic St Kilda establishment. However, if getting out of your PJ’s is too much of a hassle, then there’s nothing better than driving through for the sole purpose of grabbing a delicious burger to eat in the comfort of your own home.
