Burger Boys @ Deja Vu Bar @ Sunday, March 29, 2015

It is a known fact that anything in miniature size is cute. Especially when it's food! In this case burgers, or rather sliders as they're known as. The origin of the term is unknown. White Castle trademarked the spelling variant "Slyder" and used it between 1985 and 2009, for their mini burgers. 

As a lover of history, there are many things that I see differently or might have different reason for like. When I picture a burger called a 'slider' I see a bar and a long bar table, and when your order's ready they read out your number and slide it across the table to you. The scene is an old tavern, perhaps The Poisoned Apple from Shrek, or something of that era. 

Just around the corner from Flagstaff Gardens is Dejavu Bar & Lounge, the bar is small in width but very long in length, much like those old fashioned houses near the city where they all share one roof. 

Burger Boys create burgers for the bar and offer a set of 3 sliders for $10 or $4 each. All beef no pork in patties, for those who don't eat the former. The sliders were great, though the cranberry was a bit flat. Need to ramp up the flavours (sugar) there. I love the classic and onion relish though. 

World Series - Mustard, Ketchup & Pickle
Larry David - Onion & Relish
Thanksgiving - Lettuce & Cranberry Mayo

During the day it's nice and quiet, the way I like it, though at night they're crawling with lawyers. Service was lovely, unlike all the fruit flies attacking me! I was indoors by the window and there were so many! So it was hard to take pictures. 

Being located near the courts, it's right up there with no trains on the weekend. Though it's just a short walk from Melbourne Central. If burgers are your thing then definitely check these out.

Do you prefer sliders or regular sized burgers? 
Any recommendations for miniature sized food?
