Paul’s first contestant in ‘Bendigo’s best sub $10 burger’ quest comes to you from McIvor Road Takeaway. (Thanks for the suggestion Gus)
A strong contestant at $7.25 with an optional $3 ‘upgrade’ to include chips and a can of drink. May I present The Deluxe… I’m assuming it’s the McIvor’s take on the lot. Only this time, possibly the only place where pineapple is inclusive and not extra. Definite vantage points there.
The shop presents a range of different burgers of different names without any pretentiousness e.g. ‘The Chicken’. One can only imagine what type of burger that might be referring to.
The Deluxe is complete with all trimmings: beetroot, lettuce, tomato, well-melted cheese, egg, bacon, onion, and, of course, a bit of ‘dead horse’ as the iconic Australian saying goes. The neat stack of almost cookie cut pieces is worthy of advertising but every bit as authentic and fresh unlike certain fast food restaurants would have you believe.
Still leaves me hunting for that perfectly cooked, ever-so-slightly runny egg yolk, though. Wherever shall I go next?
