Chasing Father’s Day lunch

Father’s Day lunch at TGIF
Forest Hill Chase Shopping Centre

What a Sunday adventure! We got the address mixed up and went to the wrong TGIF – Doncaster instead of Forest Hill Chase shopping centre. But all was good in the end and D got to have a meat-filled Father’s Day lunch with his YeYe (Chinese for grandfather!) and his uncles, aunty and cousin Will at TGIFriday’s. Thank goodness for the online menu – I looked it up on the drive there and sent a message to my sister-in-law so she was able to order for us!

A family friendly atmosphere with high chairs and change facilities for the babies and toddlers. Also situated next to the games and movies so D was free to run around afterwards. The staff were friendly and happily refilled our lemon, lime bitters and made sure we were happy with our meals. Now I just have to eat right for the rest of the week and get  my running shoes on!

Parmesan Meatballs – Three breaded meatballs smothered in marinara, melted Monterey Jack, Parmesan & Romano. Topped with fresh tomato-basil bruschetta
Jack Daniels Mixed Grill – Crispy Shrimp, Half-Rack of Ribs, Chicken
Baby Back Ribs – Slow-cooked baby back pork ribs basted in Tennessee BBQ sauce, then fire-grilled. Served with seasoned fries and ginger-lime slaw

Discovering Burger Culture in Williamstown

Burger Culture – 3 Cole street, Williamstown 

After an original plan was thwarted by the newly opened cafe being closed, Consider the Sauce’s Kenny, took me an old favourite of his, Burger Culture. Check out Kenny’s take on Burger Culture here! What a nice surprise – a bright, cheery atmostphere (or maybe that was Melbourne’s gorgeous spring sunshine coming through) and such great value burgers. As we approached Burger Culture I could already feel the busy buzz and we took our seats outside so as to accommodate Baby D and his pram.

I ordered the Yankee Culture burger and it was bursting with flavour from the mustard, pickles and tasty cheese melted all over the beef pattie. With a side of chips and a can all for under $12, Kenny and I were winning! 🙂 Such great value for the quality and taste!  We didn’t have to wait too long for our orders either! Will definitely be back here soon as the other half loves his burgers and I can’t wait for him to try these!

Have you tried a Burger Culture burger? Which one should I try on my next visit!? Suggest a burger below 🙂

Have a great week everyone!
