Hello Sam A Burger Sensation in South Yarra
Hello Sam has an impressive backstory, with the owner Katherine Sampson having risen from a small shopping centre business to a savvy burger sensation in South Yarra. At the end of Chapel St not far from Richmond, Hello Sam is a light in this foodie precinct with its massive quality burgers and attractive ambience. Burgers should speak for themselves without hype, and these burgers speak volumes.
The menu at Hello Sam is top notch in satisfying tastes for all including beef, chicken, veggie, lamb and fish. Clever names abound such as Chipotle Bandido, Sam-On (with Salmon), the Parme-Sam, as well as Sam-Brero. Behind the quirk of the names is an authenticity of flavours.
You always admire a burger joint when you have the urge to try several burgers on their menu. Let's face it, some burger joints are one hit wonders, with a star attraction and a series of forgettable burgers. Not so at Hello Sam, with a plethora of compelling options.
For those who love a big stack Hello Sam has it covered. The Sam the Man Double is a massive burger that hardly fitted into my Instagram frame forcing me backwards to capture the dimensions of the burger in my photo. Yes the burger forced me backwards! The patties are char grilled and exude thick meaty goodness, not overcooked but juicy. We naturally gravitate to The Big Sam's part of the menu - where you can enjoy up to 3 patties in your burger. Size does matter when it comes to burgers but quality must match. Hello Sam prides itself on the finest and freshest of ingredients including Angus patties.
The Bean burger is perfect for those not keen on a meat fest.
For those who want some kick, the heat on the Spicy Sam burger is perfect thanks to jalapenos and fiery harissa.
Hello Sam boast simple modern decor and an impressive outside area with heaters for the cold.
Or try the Too Cheesy which lives up to its name with a mustard mayo cheddar ale melt. We note 2 mustards in the mustard mayo and the sheer cheesy joy in this burger. One of the best Cheeseburgers in Melbourne.
Sides are compelling including the Nacho Sam Fries, so rewarding with tasty salsa, cheese, sour cream and guacamole over the fries.
Or the Beer battered chips...
Hello Sam hits the burger spot.
Hello Sam captured our imagination and taste buds and we rate this place as one of the best in Melbourne. This is a savvy burger house.
