St Kilda Burger Bar finds home in Melbourne CBD
The St Kilda Burger Bar (STKBB) Truck has secured a permanent site outside the Arts Centre in the Melbourne CBD.
The truck will serve its popular burgers as well as a selection of items for breakfast customers (from 8am) including bircher muesli, fruit salad or a ham and Swiss cheese croissant.
From 10am, four of STKBB’s burgers will be available, along with hot chips.
The menu has been approved by City of Melbourne’s Healthy Choices: food and drink classification guide, which classifies vendors’ items under a traffic light system from green (healthiest), amber (to be consumed in moderation) to red (not essential in a balanced diet). To be approved, tenderers must serve a minimum of three green or amber items, of which two must be food items.
STKBB owner, Rabih Yanni, said “I’m very passionate about healthy eating, and when it comes to burgers, I’m a big believer in ‘fast food’ with a slow food mentality. Our chefs take great pride in their craft and make informed choices, ensuring that our burgers taste great and are of premium quality.
“Not only is this a great location but an honour to take St Kilda Burger Bar to the city where we can appeal to locals and tourists. Just minutes from both Flinders Street Station and Federation Square, the site is right in the middle of Melbourne’s arts and entertainment precinct, which is a real hive of activity,” he said.
Prior to this, the STKBB truck travelled all around Victoria, appearing at a number of public and private events and activations, such as the Australian Formula 1 Grand Prix, Moomba, White Night and the St Kilda Festival.
The full STKBB range is also available through Uber Eats.
The team is now looking to fit out a second burger truck which will be available for events and activations from July 2017.
