Dear AHT: The Fat Bastard Burger in Melbourne, Australia

Dear AHT

Recommendations, reviews, and more from the AHT inbox.

Editor's note: AHT reader Noel D. noticed our lack of Australia burger coverage (we don't mean to neglect you guys; you're just all very, very far away from us) and sent us a report to fill in a gap.


Dear AHT, Letters From Our ReadersIf you're in Melbourne and you feel up to a burger challenge, try The Fat Bastard Burger at Greasy Joe's in St. Kilda. The monstrosity contains triple beef, triple cheese, triple bacon, mustard, mayo, and onions. It also comes with a few potato wedges on the side—which you might not get around to. What it doesn't include is a salad.

The taste? Like eating straight off a smoky barbecue. And not to mention quite greasy. Not for the faint of heart.

I followed up with Noel to ask for more info on his burger-eating experience. Considering his response, I think he left out some important details:

I did manage to finish it. But it left me all greasy inside. The feeling was like having a stomach halfway filled with oil. It wasn't a full feeling.

Thank you for eating the whole burger, Noel—now the rest of us know not to do that. ;)
