The Grosvenor Hotel in St Kilda is one of the most aesthetically pleasing pubs you’ll find around town. Each section with its own personality, abundant light, and little rooms here and there, some filled with hanging meats, some filled with walls of wine. So it makes sense that their latest venture has a complete new personality – something a little more grungy. St Kilda Burger Bar (STKBB), which is found in the drive through section behind the pub is all about, you guessed it, burgers.
The Grosvenor Hotel isn’t just known as being a looker, it’s also known for the killer meals. Steaks, pizzas, and chips to write home about are just the beginning. Plus they sell around 200 burgers a week. This makes us feel all the more comfortable they’re in charge of the burgers and sides at STKBB.
Just like the hotel, STKBB focuses on quality with all the burgers being made from hand pressed, grass fed, 100% certified Angus beef sourced from Gippsland Victoria. The menu ranges from The Grosvenor – beef, streaky bacon, shed sauce, lettuce, tomato, and pickles to the Mr Fun Guy – roasted Portobello mushrooms and Gruyere cheese. There are also non-burger options like the Grosvenor Chiko Roll and the ‘Bunnings St Dog’ – cheese kransky, American mustard, ketchup, and sauerkraut. You can get the famous chips as well as a sweet potato cake, or a grain salad for something a little on the healthy side. For a sweet ending you can either go boozy with the spiked ice creams, or PG with the 7 Apples Gelato or the Saint’s Halo, a take on the old wagon wheel.
To wash it all down there’s a Mountain Goat Summer Ale, a Mountain Goat IPA, or a Kelly Brothers Apple Cider. Or some organic soft drinks for the drivers among us.
They keep things simple and that’s exactly how a burger and fries should be. We approve.
