Knocked out in Balwyn

Another cold day in Melbourne and after a successful burger adventure the day before, I was keen to back it up with another good burger to help warm the inners! This time I headed to “Balwyn Canteen”, which I have heard good things about, so I was keen to find out for myself. It was a small unassuming place, reminiscent of an old school, fish n chip shop.

Interestingly, they had a burger with a donut as the bun, peanut butter and bacon in there too?! hmmmm…. I wondered if I’d like that?! However, I was in the mood for a “with the lot” styled burger, so I ordered the “Senior Burger” which came with double beef patty, double cheese, pickles, mustard, ketchup and canteen sauce. Then, I added lettuce, tomato, bacon and egg. This burger was bigger than I thought it would be and looked so good, with melted cheese falling out everywhere.

It was another burger that was quite slippery at first, until I got a good grip and steadied myself. A few bites in and I was hooked. The meat was really tasty and cooked perfectly, so I was glad it was a double patty. The cheese was on point. Bacon and egg delightful, and the Canteen sauce provided the right hint of flavour throughout the burger.

Chips on the side were good, and this time I had a bottle of water because I was counting calories – and I couldn’t count that high!! lol

Overall, a “knock out” experience, and I am glad I got there to find out what all the hype is about. Definitely worth a visit, and next time I might even branch out for the donut burger?! Although, I hear their fried chicken calling my name!!
