I’m not one of those guys who goes to the same burger joint every weekend and orders the same burger in the same seat at the same time. I’m not that obsessed with burgers, however, I am always thinking about burgers, talking about burgers and I eat burgers at every opportunity which is about 3-4 times per week… maybe I am obsessed…
The obsession really only started in late June 2014 when I decided to create this burger blog, I purchased www.BurgersofMelbourne.com.au, and then quickly got the handle @burgersofmelbourne on both Facebook and Instagram. I immediately turned into a burger connoisseur, I started speaking to chefs about their burgers and giving pointers to what I did and didn’t like about what they had on offer.
In only a matter of weeks, I started gaining a loyal following. People started liking my pictures, commenting on my reviews and actually started telling their friends that my account was one to follow. I have made a number of good friends throughout the journey of food blogging and have a lot of fun keeping this site active.
Having the website and handles with Melbourne in the name, I do seem to be traveling all around Melbourne just to try a burger if it has been recommended and has been given a must try by its customers.
My plan of hitting the previous top-rated burgers of Melbourne from 2012/2013 first and then trying to sort out the good from the bad soon quickly took a turn. In the first 6 months, and over 50 burgers later, I still had only tried a handful of those listed. After realising I had turned into the go-to resource to find a burger in Melbourne I thought I should create a burger bucket list for myself to know where I still need to go that has been recommended and a live ladder so I had something live to compare each burger against each other.
The burger list seems to be growing on a daily basis and I have now eaten at well over 200 burger joints and picking a top spot is hard! My list may not be perfect, but I eat more burgers than most and have documented each experience along the way.
Burgers are now a huge part of my life, friends and family constantly talk burgers around me and want advice of where to go to get an amazing feed.
I am getting through Melbourne one burger at a time and having a ball doing it.
