The Big Burger Biannual is returning to Melbourne this weekend!
Ah spring, the sun is out, the siren of the Grand Final is about to ring and the Big Burger Biannual is set to have mouths watering once again this weekend. Hank Marvin Markets will host the two-day dude food loving event at St Kilda’s Alma Park, and it is sure to have lovers of all things burgers salivating.
This time around, The Big Burger Biannual is throwing the gauntlet to burger lovers to encourage them to stray away from the traditional cheese burger and trial an inventive taste from Jamaica, Vietnam, Mexico and even Korea. Whatever you choose, you won’t be left hungry. On average, during March’s Biannual celebration, festival goers chowed through at least two burgers each.
Some of Melbourne’s favourite burger sculptures will be on hand to provide nourishing goodness. Originally hailing from a food truck, Brunswick’s table tennis loving Beatbox Kitchen will serve up sliders galore. You can enter overindulgent heaven with the cheeky creations from Between 2 Buns, or head for the BBQ with the guys from Gorilla Grill.
If you are still left with room in your stomach after tearing through the array of burgers, then there will be a plethora of drink and dessert stalls standing by to assist. Independent craft brewery Stomping Ground and Willie Smith’s Cider will each be pouring pints. For those with a sweet tooth Billy Van Creamy and Pop-Up Crepes will excite with creamy, kid-friendly palate cleansers.
With the Big Burger Biannual running all day Thursday and Friday, there will be no better way to celebrate the approaching AFL Grand Final.
If you miss out on the St Kilda event, or can’t contain your burger obsession then never fear! The Big Burger Biannual is heading to Ballarat. The Ballarat Botanical Gardens will be shrouded by the aromas of sloppy joes from October 5 until October 8.
