Beatbox Kitchen Melbourne Hot or Not review

Mobile food vans are nothing new. But a mobile food van that looks like a big stereo is pretty cool.

Raph owns the Beatbox Kitchen and serves up burgers and fries in locations trackable only via Twitter. He pulled up in front of the Lamington Drive gallery opening  of Risographica! on a wet evening and I was his first customer.

There are only three items on the menu – Raph beef burger with salad and tangy mango ($11), a portabello mushroom burger with the same salad and tangy mayo ($11)  and hand cut chips with tangy mayo or Annie’s tomato relish ($5).

The burgers are pretty good – grilled to order with crisp salad ingredients, although personally I think not as good as gourmet burger chain Grill’d. I highly recommend ordering the relish with your cone of fries – Annie is a family friend of Raph’s and she makes huge jars of the relish in Seaford only for her family and Beatbox Kitchen.
