Starving hungry after a long shift at work, I was driving down Howitt street Wendouree when I saw the familiar and tastebud friendly lights of the I love burgers and kebabs burger van, glowing in the distance.
Normally, I go the HSP with these guys, pretty much because it’s the BEST HSP in Ballarat, but tonight, such glottony by myself seemd unjustfyable, even if it was incredibly tempting.
The idea of the chicken burger- “bird is the word” had been catching my attention a lot, the last couple of trips here mostly because of the mention of the fact that the recipe for the fried chicken inside was stolen from the proprietor’s father… suggesting a long standing, tried and true crowd pleasing recipe…
But in this case, the sheer fact that it advertised “raw slaw” content was enough for me to make a weak justification for my guilty purchase to the lass when i came home smelling of delicious burgers later in the night. I could at least say I’d had some salad/greens/whatever a cabbage counts as.
I guess i’d conveniently NOT mention that I’d up sized to the drink and chippies option. (It’s a mandatory, not optional thing, right? I mean, it’s beer battered crisp, golden chips and kirks’s pasito! not negotiable complementary goods to a satisfying burger meal!)
MmmmMmmm! check out that thick, crispy, juicy DOUBLE HIT of fried chicken in that there burger, and a good squirt of tangy sauce!!
Undoubtedly ballarat’s best chicken burger!
