The Beer & Burger Bar, Richmond by Bureaucrat

Winter weather brings on the need to carbo-load.  Notions of healthy eating are put to one side in preference for carbs, protein and fried goodness.  The Beer & Burger Bar in Richmond can certainly help with this.  Before turning up, I checked out their Instagram account - it's replete with blokes tucking into massive burgers, including "The Don" a mammoth burger made with 1.2kg of beef, 16 rashes of bacon, 400g of chips, two cans of soft drink plus all the usual burger trimmings.

Lunch is served!

Dainty portions isn't what The Beer & Burger Bar is about.  So even our regular sized burgers were still quite hefty. 

The Beer & Burger Bar, Richmond, B.O.B
Although the Lawyer briefly entertained the idea of going for The Don (thank god, he didn't!) he went for the mighty B.O.B - beef patty, fried chicken, double bacon, pineapple, jalapenos and cola BBQ sauce.  He quite enjoyed his burger, especially the fried chicken.  A wriggling Boy Chick meant that I was distracted and didn't get a chance to try some of this burger - the beef patty and the bacon looked very enticing.

The Beer & Burger Bar, Richmond, hall of fame
Fame for those who've conquered The Don!

The Beer & Burger Bar, Richmond, pork roast burger
I went for the roast pork burger - it was loaded with pulled pork, grilled pineapple, apple relish, Asian slaw, pork scratchings and aioli.  The pork was nice and tender; as was the apple relish and Asian slaw.  However, I would have preferred the relish and slaw to have been zingier in flavour to help cut through the meatiness of the burger.  I really liked the nuggets of crispy scratchings - yum!

The Beer & Burger Bar, Richmond, sides
We just had to get some sides to go with our burgers!  We got a serve of medium chips (nice and fluffy), chips with gravy and cheese (oh so moreish!) and onion rings (light and crisp with a sweeter-than-usual batter). I loved how all the sides had a beautiful golden colour.

The Beer & Burger Bar, Richmond, milkshakes
The Beer & Burger Bar boasts over 40 local and international craft beers.  However, as the Lawyer and I aren't big on beer, we went for their milkshakes.  We got the Malteser and Berry Crunch milkshakes - both were lovely and thick.

The burgers here are pretty big!  While there is a vegetarian option, this is definitely caters to those with a carnivorous bent.  Servings are generous.

We've been told that the Beer & Burger Bar doesn't take bookings and that they can get very busy on Friday nights, weekends and footy nights.

The service is very friendly and considerate - we were given an extra plate for Boy Chick without prompting and they didn't seem to mind when he had a mini tantrum... yikes!
