Melbourne’s first Pizza Burger and Shake Burger to make their debut at one of Victoria’s oldest markets
Melbourne’s most loved burger party is back for one-day only at Dandenong Market on Sunday 27 May to celebrate National Burger Day.
For one delicious day, 21 of the market’s vendors are turning burger mad and will offer their own limited-edition burgers. Running from the savoury to sweet – representing a host of different cuisines – these clever creations will take anyone’s burger obsession to the next level.
Burger lovers have the opportunity to munch on Melbourne’s first ever pizza burger from Dandy Pizza (two Margherita pizzas as ‘buns’, with a beef patty, cheese, fresh sliced tomato, spinach and homemade sauce), bite into Thela Indian Street Food’s Indian Stack Burger (rice pancake buns, vegetable samosas, cheese, avocado and lamb keema), chomp into Market Tavern’s Schnitzel Burger (2 chicken parma ‘buns’, fried egg, tomato and lettuce) or jump on the charcoal trend with the Charcoal Burger.
Market goers will be able to indulge in a sweet tooth’s dream with over seven dessert burgers. After the success at last year’s Burger Day, Dandee Donuts will be recreating their Tim Tam burger: Tim Tam, jam sauce and cream inside two steaming hot Dandee Donuts. A Lamington Burger, a Donut Ice-cream Burger and another Melbourne first – The Monster Burger Shake: a smoothie topped with a cinnamon donut, chocolate sponge, strawberries, toffee, white chocolate syrup and whipped cream – will all be on offer.
The burger royalty who have an adventurous appetite can take part in the professional burger eating competition and demolish The Double Chompster:a 900-gram burger including 5 burger buns, 8 beef patties, 8 cheese slices, bacon rashers, onions, pickles, ketchup, mustard and BBQ sauce. The burger has been created by Instagram food sensation and burger faithful Riley ‘Chompamatic’ Murphy (@chompamatic) for Dandenong Market’s burger specialist, The Grill. If contestants conquer this, they have the chance to win $500.
“After the success of last year’s Burger Day celebrations, we and the stall holders knew we had to step it up a notch; and with double the amount of traders this year, no one will go hungry!
“This free, community event has something to offer for everyone – from pizza lovers to ice-cream lovers – all in the shape of a burger,” Walker said.
Visitors can have their Dandenong Market ‘Burger Passport’ stamped at each participating trader and go into the running to win $500 in Dandenong Market vouchers. Each stamp counts as a separate entry, so conquer all 25 limited- edition burgers and get 25 entries to win big.
To top off the mouth-watering festivities, The Grill will also be giving away unlimited burgers for one year. Enter via Dandenong Market’s Facebook page and go in the draw to treat your friends for 12 burger-endless months.
