Gastrology bloggers dined courtesy of The Grand Trailer Park Taverna.
The Grand Trailer Park Taverna is turning heads with delicious burgers and a crazy concoction of spiked milkshakes.
Gastrology bloggers were privileged to attend the launch of the restaurant this week.
Featuring a unique converted trailer park theme, and a fabulous outdoor area looking over the city, the restaurant and bar has a sophisticated yet retro feel. The dining area includes two Winnebagos and two Airstream caravans, which have been converted into booths for visitors to dine in. There is also an incredible balcony overlooking Bourke Street which is perfect for hot summer days.
The Grand Trailer Park Taverna is the brainchild of Josh Lefers (Pawn & Co) and Dani Zieni from the award-winning Dandenong Pavilion. Among the renovated caravans, visitors can dine on a selection of delicious American home-style burgers, spiked milkshakes, cocktails and more.
The burgers are made with grass-fed beef patties minced in-house, La Rossette brioche buns and sandwich bread by Mr Pitaman. Setting the bar extremely high for burger joints, there are a total of nine burgers on the menu including a vegetarian option and a range of desserts including a decadent dessert waffle burger with ice cream. A selection of American style cocktails and craft beer is also available.
Our favourite burger from the night was the KSA. With a rich and succulent premium beef pattie, the hamburger had, sandwiched between two halves of a slightly sweet and perfectly toasted brioche bun, American cheddar cheese, tomato, butter lettuce, special burger sauce and American mustard and The Grand Trailer Park Taverna’s signature “special burger sauce”. It was a classic burger and was absolutely delicious.
The Grand Trailer Park Taverna is shaking up the Melbourne burger scene. With award-winning burgers and delicious spiked shakes, this quirky eatery is set to become one of Melbourne’s favourite casual destinations.
