Burger Wars Episode XLVI: Russell Norman Steamed One

While in Melbourne I read a couple posts about the steamed burger in Mishkin's so as usual I couldn't resist to do a stop as soon as I was back. Second visit to the Jewish deli, if you’re curious you can read the first review here. This time I got there at the end of the lunch time, still there was some tables and a couple in the bar. 

The place
Love the lamps
Ordered a Diamond Fizz and the 3oz steamed beef patty with caramelised onions and Swiss cheese, as side chips. 

Fizzy drink
Burger time
The verdict, slider size, well let’s face it is 3oz patty, the steamed burger was a revelation, not sure how but it was medium rare, perfectly cooked, nice flavour, the bun quite odd, particularly gummy texture but it works with the patty absorbing the juices. The onions a good touch, wouldn't mind a bit more of the cheese or a stronger one actually. Fries were nice and crisp. 

The damage, 9 quid for the quasi burger and the chips. 

The conclusion, nice quasi burger, the patty was a surprise, I would do something with the cheese to be honest, onions a nice touch. I would give Mishkin's a 7 in my scale lots of flavour but there is room for improvement. 

Close up
The steamed patty reminds me the Seinfeld episode “The Chicken Roaster” 

Seth: Number sixty seven, family feast 
Newman: Number 67, right here, right here! 
Jerry: Hello Newman 
Newman: Hello Jerry
Seth: And don't forget your steamed broccoli 
Jerry: Hold it, Newman, you wouldn't eat broccoli if it was deep fried in chocolate sauce 
Newman: I love broccoli, it’s good for you 
Jerry: Really? Then maybe you'd like to have a piece? 
Newman: Gladly… Vile weed! 
Jerry: It's Kramer isn't it? The greasy door knob the constant licking of the fingers, he's hooked to the chicken isn't he?
Newman: Yes, now please. Someone, honey mustard
