I met up with Steve after work, around 7pm and for a change he came into the CBD to meet me instead of me heading over to Southbank. We wanted to eat but nothing too fancy and quick would probably be better as I was susceptible to falling asleep!
I had the bright idea of Huxtaburger in the CBD so we headed to Flinders Lane. Not the easiest to find but I soon spotted the flashing neon sign down the alleyway. It appears this area has had a bit of a revamp since I worked at 333 Collins St, 9 months ago. Although on an evening, only Huxtaburger is open.
Every seat was taken when we arrived but there was no queue so we stood around by one of the cash registers that was closed. Some seats became empty after our food arrived so we scooted over. We both went with the Theo which was a double meat patty and I had chipotle fries whereas Steve went with plain.
The burger bun was delicious - in hindsight double patty is excessive so I probably wouldn't do that next time. The meat bun ratio with a double patty is too heavy on the meat. I loved the juiciness of the burger though, However I found the mustard mayo a bit too sharp and I expected some sweetness from the BBQ sauce but that didn't come through. Next time, for my tastes I would go with no mustard mayo I think.
I liked the crispy fries and the spiciness of the chipotle seasoning. Reminiscent of Hull's chip spice it was like a grown up version with a chilli kick. Free refills on soft drinks was most welcome!
Yeah Huxtaburger saw off that dreary wet Wednesday and brought with it some comfort and warmth.
