BUNS AND SUN BY BETTY’S BURGERS
By Jo Rittey
Betty’s Burgers & Concrete Co. has brought a little bit of Queensland and a whole lot of deliciousness to the streets of Melbourne with the recent opening of their fourth burger shack.
The venue brings summery vibes from its flagship store in Noosa to the city and offers a select range of top quality burgers such as the signature Betty’s Classic and the more health-conscious Bare Betty, as well as ‘Concretes’; frozen custard ice-creams made in-house with delicious mix-ins such as Persian fairy floss and chocolate-chip cookie dough.
Owner, David Hales, who named the original burger joint after his grandmother, says, “We’re thrilled to be heading to Melbourne, which is undoubtedly the burger capital of Australia, if not the world. We’re passionate about what we do and committed to getting every single element right and we hope that is evident to the burger fans of the south.”
Paul Kelly Design has installed handmade floor tiles in the Melbourne store, alongside custom imported Italian wall tiles, hanging plants and a one of a kind custard machine. With a pastel-coloured design aesthetic that pays homage to the 1950’s, the restaurant is a summery flourish in the CBD.
Having won Best Burgers on the Gold Coast earlier this year, it’s up to you, Melbournians to judge for yourselves.
Betty’s Burgers will be open from 10am til late, seven days a week.
