Beatbox Kitchen, South Melbourne, Melbourne
Check out Beatbox Kitchen’s burgers, dropping at a market or event-thing near you. Solid offering and decent value at $12 for the Raph burger make for a sweet addition to the foodscape here. The boys and I headed down for a lunchtime pickup, with the burgers served quick from the truck.
Part of misses grabbing an easy lunch right by work. The South Melbourne markets gave you so many options, not to count the supermarkets and other cafes we all had such easy access to. These days I get my lunch from the office canteen. No complaints there because it helps to save me the dollars, but it never lives up to the fantasy of food options like this.
Beatbox Kitchen is one of the trucks that would pop up on the side of the market. We never truly understood what the rotation or structure of what food truck would be presented. It was always one, and often the one we didn’t want.
Back to Beatbox Kitchen anyways; we all ended up getting the beef option. Toasty buns to a t, a good helping of salad and tender, juicy meat. The accompanying liquid here is their house blend “stereo sauce”. This made for a tangy mayo sauce taste which I enjoyed and I thought went well with the rest of the components. Nice clean, burger save for the meat juice drips.
The only slight qualm is that the back of the bun was a bit on the sog-side of things. I’d suggest giving it a good rotate or digesting on the double. Not a difficult request by any means, these are delicious burgers. I stole half of Anthony’s fries and these were also good. Great sides, super tender meat and plenty of it, fresh ingredients – that’s music to my ears. Beatbox Kitchen is tops.
