It was the food combination that had to happen, given Melbourne's hearty love of both burgers and dumplings. And, when Burma Lane mashed the two together, it became the most popular item on their menu. Of course it did.
That was a year ago. So to celebrate 12 months of eating wagyu cheeseburger bacon dumplings with Vietnamese tomato sauce, the Little Collins Street restaurant is serving them up for $1 each. Yes, you read that correctly, and they're available to both dine-in and takeaway customers for the three days between January 16 and 18. Because everyone loves cheap food, the deal is limited to five per customer.
For those unfamiliar with this epic hybrid, they're exactly what they sound like: Wagyu beef, cheese and bacon, parcelled up together and then steamed. Oh, and then devoured quick smart, naturally. Usually, you'd spend $17 for four, so if you weren't convinced already, you are now.
