And on the eighth, God said “shit, guys, we’re so close. What am I missing??” and some yobbo down the back said, “Equality between genders! A cure for cancer! Effective world leaders!”, and God said, “nah nah nah, better than that”, and mac & cheese burgers were born.

Melbourne wouldn’t be Melbourne if it didn’t set the pace for heart-stopping gastronomy, which is why our glorious city has not one but ELEVEN mac & cheese burgers that’ll put any burgerphile into a coma. Each and every one of them more delicious than the last.
