Burgertory | Prahran
A small chunk of Chapel Street’s soul was taken away when the Prahran HJs served its final whopper to whoever it was that stumbled out of Revs at 4am. But now, after four years of emptiness, the heritage-listed locale will be home to a new burger joint called Burgertory.
Having several locations north of the river and one more recently opened in St Kilda, you may be familiar with Burgertory’s OTT offerings. They’ve gone hard on the theme with all their burgers named after one of the seven deadly sins and the archangels.
There are several highlights that shouldn’t be missed, like the southern fried chicken Lust burger and the Envy vegan number, but any discerning burger lover should have a crack at the Gluttony. It’s stacked with a beef patty, southern fried chicken, bacon, swiss cheese, American cheese, tomato, lettuce, mayo, red onions and pickle inside a charcoal bun—see if you can put your money where your mouth is with that one.
Make your way down the menu and you’ll find the poutine, chilli bean fries and mac n cheese load. The latter is sure to satiate you no matter how intense those end-of-night hunger levels are. That being said, the hot wings are worth a run if for whatever reason you have more room left in the tank.
Burgertory Prahran is looking to open mid-September. Here’s hoping for late-night trading hours along with a side eased lockdown restrictions.
