  1. YOMG

(Y)omg, this place knows how to make a burger! Made with 100% grass fed Aussie Angus with no secret additives, YOMG is the home of house made, hand-pressed patties sourced locally to feed the locals. The Moonee Ponds location is at 17-19 Pratt Street, and reopens after the Christmas break on January 3 at 11:30am, so set your calendars!

Every burger on the menu tastes as good as it looks, which is saying a lot as you browse their menu and start salivating. The Kingsway is a double cheeseburger we could eat right off the screen with its double beef and cheese, topped with caramelised onion and secret sauce. Meanwhile, veggies are in luck as well— the veggie burger Vegapalooza and vegan burger The Vegan Hustle will have you saying ‘meat who?’. We mean it— January 3, be there!

  1. BurGround

Every Moonee Ponds local will know BurGround, and it’s a rite of passage that you try it if you haven’t already. This hamburger restaurant is known for its handcrafted burgers

available to eat in or take away, such as the Spinner on its brioche bun, the Seesaw on its charcoal bun, and the Skyrider on its beetroot bun. And while the burgers are amazing, they’re just the beginning of the menu! We recommend the Cheesy Potato, which is just like it sounds, and the Violet smoothie with its blend of blueberries, banana, yoghurt, honey, and coconut water. If you can ever decide which gourmet burger and side take your fancy, pop on in to 84 Puckle Street and savour the taste today.

Whether you’re into beef, chicken, lamb, or a veggie burger, you’re in for a treat at Grill’d!
