Spot on Kebab Station

My friend recently recommended a burger place to me in the Western suburbs. Unexpectedly, it’s actually one of your late-night kebab places but with a more extensive menu.

To be specific, they recommended the bomba burger, a mighty burger 30g bigger than a quarter pounder. It includes halal beef patty, cheese, tomato, onion, fries, a lamb doner (kebab meat) and their special Spot on sauce (bottom on the menu below).

20140516_211520As you see, they also serve kebabs and plenty of other options. They had another menu (below) with coffee, sweets and family combo options.

It’s great that they can serve such a variety, but it seems they are well known for their burgers, strangely enough for a kebab station! I must admit their haka burger looks amazing as well (click here), so I’ll definitely have to come back some time for it.

For a Friday night, it was fairly busy but not packed. You will have to wait a while to order and a bit of time for your burger, but this should be expected from food trucks that cook your food fresh. It’s about $10.50 for a bomba burger combo with chips and drink, whilst I think the burger by itself may have been around $8 or so. Of course, when you weigh it up, you think I might as well get a combo.

The burgers are served in convenient takeaway containers. They also have a cosy seating area next to the truck complete with a television, which was playing some AFL, for entertainment.

You can see my combo below – the burger is massive, the bread lengthy and the mild sauce adds an exciting flavour. Due to its size, it’s very difficult to hold without making a mess. They don’t have plastic cutlery so it’s all about getting down and dirty.

It seems it’s also all the rage now to have chips inside your food, but I’m glad I ordered a combo because the extra chips on the side helped fill me up. It’s a little strange that they don’t offer you sauce for your chips, so we had to go back and ask for a container to share.

With the two different types of meat (beef and lamb), you can’t complain about any lack of filling, but I think I preferred the juicy beef patty.

It’s unexpected gems like these that are a great surprise and make it feel worth it. I feel like I would choose this place over the overrated Huxtaburger any day. This food is going to fill me up for a similar price, but it’s also different from your typical, classic burger.

Spot on Kebab Station is located at 263 Ballarat Road, Braybrook and is open 5pm until late every night. Their Facebook indicates they close at 5am Mon-Thurs and 6am Fri-Sun.

  1. Wow – looks great and so very westie!

  2. Wow that bun is huge! They should cut it in half. It would make it easier to eat and even better for sharing.

      When we asked for cutlery, they said we could bring it up to them for them to cut in half, so I guess you can request that when ordering 🙂

  3. […] And while she covers food and places that are normally outside the scope of Consider The Sauce, she also is happy, as she puts it, to get “down and dirty” – as when she visited a Ballarat Road kebab shack. […]
