I have purposely not done a burger post yet as I was saving myself for this very occasion.. Ladies and Gentlemen, I give you one of my all time favourite food destinations, Yo My Goodness!
I have been a fan of these guys since they launched their first frozen yogurt bar in Mordialloc back in 2013. It was situated across the road from our studio and I was a very frequent guest because it was just that good! Popularity grew and they quickly opened up multiple locations across Melbourne and one in Northern Queensland.
As if I couldn't love them any more, in 2015 YoMG branched out to Glen Waverley and added a twist to their menu, burgers, loaded fries, chicken and shakes! All produce is Aussie and locally sourced too, which is what we like to hear!
Since then they have added a food truck to the mix that can be seen all over Victoria at food and summer festivals/carnivals and just last week they launched their second burger location in Mornington, which I was lucky enough to attend.
Located on Main St in Mornington, this fresh, chic and a little bit sassy (note the Nice Buns sign) revamp is a total stand out on an already buzzing strip.
I am a terrible blogger and forgot to take the important photos of the actual party and venue, but don't worry I got some food selfies of coarse and a little snap of the amazing wallpaper in the bathroom! Don't even start me on the gold details throughout. This whole place had me screaming #interiorgoals
It's always really dangerous when someone tells me "everything is complimentary" because I usually take it a bit too far, but I had my trusty Bestie on hand to make sure I didn't embarrass myself and kept our order respectable.
I'm a bit of a creature of habit, once I find something I really like, I always order it. Usually I get a YoMy with Cheese and extra bacon, but in light of the launch and new menu, I thought I'd mix it up a bit.
I opted for a meatier option in The Muffler! Beef, Southern Fried Chicken, Bacon, Double Cheese, Onion Fries, Pickles (I'm partial to pickles, I don't get you Weirdos who throw them out), BBQ Sauce and Mayo.
I don't quite know how to accurately describe how satisfying this burger was without sounding dirty, so fuck it here goes.. Stuffing three meats in my mouth never tasted so good!
Kate went for my usual order, YoMy with Cheese snd Bacon and we shared some crispy fries. Later in the night we tried our best to decorate our froyos so they were blog worthy, but instead ended up covering them in almost every topping and dangling sour strap candy off them. It wasn't pretty, but man did it taste good!
To the team at Yo My Goodness,
I am so honoured to have been able to watch you grow over the past 3 years. Your passion and genuine love for food and sharing that love with the community is what truely makes your establishment so special. Every burger, every shake, every topping and every flavour choice is so well thought through and impeccably presented every single time. The people you choose to have a part of your team so clearly share your enthusiasm for life and make every dining experience a memorable one. I am biased because I think everything you do is amazing, but the countless Best Burger lists you have graced and thousands of glowing reviews you receive will back me up. Best burgers around.
Thank you for your kindness and generosity. Here's to many more years of YoMG! Can't wait to see what you do next.
