Been a while since I last got to Balwyn Canteen... but as soon as they were in for $5 cheesies AND dropping croissant burger buns I was locked in. Balwyn Canteen have always been a favourite of mine. Humble but incredible... from the team, the store to the food, itโ€™s nothing over the top, simple yet incredible tasty! Highlight number 1: That croissant bun was godlike. Itโ€™s like the best bits of a croissant (buttery and flavoursome) but still held strong with plenty if sauce and toasted so nicely. Highlight number 2: The beef. Nithing crazy but cooked incredibly well. Charred nicely on the outside with a nice little crust. Really let the quality of the meat to shine through in this burger. Nice cheesemelt and a good blend of mustard, ketchup and house sauce. Balwyn Canteen should be HIGH on everyones Melbourne hit list.

Before today, I couldnโ€™t tell you the last time I ate a classic cheesy from a burger joint. As far as a classic cheesy goes, Iโ€™m not real sure how you could make this much better. Might lie in the ratio of sauces. The real standout is the buns which are like 50% butter I think, soft, baked fresh in store, really easy to eat and went well with the small amount of fillings.

๐Ÿ”BFC ย  ๐Ÿ—๐Ÿ—Double Buttermilk fried chicken ๐ŸŒถFried jalapenos ๐Ÿฅ—Slaw ๐Ÿง€Swiss cheese ๐ŸŒถHabanero mayo ย  Asked the Fried Chicken king Aindogs_Burgers what he recommends in Melbourne and he met me at this place, very unassuming place from outside, youโ€™d be mistaken for thing it was a doughnut store.ย  This chicken was epic, wicked coating, not too big but thick (not as thick as the thick shake that is another story).ย  The cheese melted nicely on top which is a rarity for chicken, slaw was just the right amount and those fried jalapenos, gave the kick but texture wise blended in nicely with the chicken.ย  Was doing a grip shot and unintentionally was gripping the bun too tight (had too many dense buns), these buns are soft yet sturdy, some of the best buns I have ever had.

We only eat Balwyn Canteen's burger. Usually order senior + senior with Mac and cheese patty + junior with chicken patty added. Great taste. Have a try.

๐Ÿ— FRIED CHICKEN BURG? LOOK NO 'FEATHER'! ๐Ÿ“ . What was Chicken Little's excuse for being late to school? โœ Answer Below โคต๏ธ ----------------------------------------------------------------------------- DJ Special ๐Ÿ” @balwyncanteen ๐Ÿ“ . ๐Ÿ— Triple Buttermilk Chicken ๐Ÿง€ Liquid Cheese ๐Ÿ‡จ๐Ÿ‡ญ Swiss Cheese and Swiss Cheese Skirt ๐ŸŒถ Jalepenos ๐Ÿฅ“ Bacon Bits ๐Ÿ’ฆ Chipotle Mayo ๐Ÿฅ— Slaw . THE REAL DEAL in the melbourne burger scene! ๐ŸฅŠ If you've been keeping track recently, then you know that i have been looking forward to this day for a VERY long time! ๐Ÿ˜ the day i finallllly got to meet my life long food crush in a date set by destiny itself! ๐Ÿ’• went down with the crew to see for ourselves how good these guys are.. DAAAMN they delivered with interest! ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜‚ BC are even better than the hype!

Ill start with the buttermilk fried chicken. Firstly, they use chicken thigh fillets ๐Ÿคค which are perfectly cooked to tender juicy, melt in yo' mouth fillets! I honestly dont think ive tasted a better fried chicken patty in a burger ๐Ÿค” sooo good! Then comes the cheese and chipotle mayo ๐Ÿง€๐Ÿ’ฆ that liquid cheese is heaven!

Try it or diet it Smashed Beef Patty Cheese Bacon Peanut Butter Jam Between two glazed doughnuts Very sweet burger, unfortunately the savory part of this burger was overpowered by the sweetness. Additionally, the bacon on top of the doughnuts was hard and I felt ruined the texture of the burger. Still canโ€™t go too wrong with a doughnut burger though!

@aindogs_burgers creation 2 x Chicken Beef Habanero Mayo Coleslaw Bacon I never really modify my burgers because I want the burger joint to give me the experience they intend to from their burger. However, I know @aindogs_burgers loves himself some Balwyn Canteen, so it would only be right to get his suggestion for a burger from here. This was absolutely massive, but wow, the chicken from this place is phenomenal. I really loved this burger, full of flavor and delicious. Challenging to get down, but such a great creation!
