Welcome back to Monday Munchies, our weekly food round-up that covers all the best local drops from the week. Here you’ll find everything from restaurant openings to new food concepts, and this week, The Batman burger, which is why you’re here… isn’t it?! Well, without further ado, let’s check out this weeks food news.
Grill’d Announces the Batman Burger
Yes, it’s a burger based on The Batman’s very own Bruce Wayne.
Rich and sophisticated – like Bruce himself – this burger is built with a grass-fed Australian beef pattie, brie cheese, Spanish onion, Hawthorn hot sauce and double truffle mayo. Did superhero size hunger? This is the one for you.
“We cater to all types of tastes – billionaires included. Crafting the ‘Bruce Wayne Burger’ in partnership with Warner Bros. Pictures was an incredible honour, both celebrating an iconic character and the biggest cinema release of 2022, ‘The Batman’. The ‘Bruce Wayne Burger’ is the most decadent burger on the menu so swoop into our restaurants before it disappears,” said Ben Goss, Chief Marketing Officer, Grill’d.
You’ll have to be quick though this limited-edition release won’t be around for long, wing into your local Grill’d ASAP pre- or post-movie with your mates and pick one up for $15.90 AUD.
Modus Drops Half Price Beer
One of our favourites breweries in the whole country, Modus Brewing, is celebrating the launch of ‘Modus Cerveza’ by inspiring Aussies to cool off this Summer with half-price Cerveza buckets when the temperature reaches 30 degrees for the next four weeks for the fiesta starting Monday 14 February.
“Cerveza is smashable. Crisp, clean, refreshing and so easy to drink, Modus Cerveza is crafted using purely Australian ingredients. With Mexican inspiring several aspects of our menus in our Modus brewery venues, a Mexican inspired beer like Modus Cerveza is a great match. Remember that refreshing twist of lime if you feel the need for more zing. Better still, it’s proudly brewed in our breweries this side of the Pacific! Keep your eyes on the weather app and grab your mates to head to Modus when the mercury hits 30, we’re throwing around half price buckets to quench your buds,” said Grant Wearin, co-founder and owner of Modus Brewery.
With a life-size thermometer set up in each location, guests will need to be ready for a scorcher over the next month as they watch the temperature climb and wait to enjoy an ice-cold half-price bucket of Cerveza with friends.
We reckon Modus Cerveza is the perfect thirst quencher for those sweltering summer days, coming in at (4.2% ABV) it’s casually crafted with innovative citrus-forward hops and traditional Mexican ingredients. Frosty, light-bodied with a crisp citrus finish, Modus Cerveza is best served with a fresh lime wedge.
