Meet Butchers Diner: a meat-storage, cafe and takeaway spot at the top end of Bourke Street that has it's doors open all the hours, days and weeks of the year.
"This isn’t your run-of-the-mill late-night food joint. If you find yourself in the CBD after a night out, hankering for $5 worth of saturated fat and regret at three o’clock in the morning, keep moving. If it’s a blood-sausage and devilled-egg hamburger you’re after, look no further.
The menu is like the United Nations of comfort food. American-diner dazzlers, such as milk-bun burgers and Coney Island chilli dogs, sit next to charcoal-grilled creole salmon cutlets; Greek pork skewers with crusty bread rolls; and yakitori-style ox tongue, gizzards, livers and duck hearts.
If you find yourself dropping in between 6am and 11am, the breakfast menu includes an egg burger with Poole’s house bacon, or pretend you’re in New York with a filter coffee and a cinnamon and caramel scroll."
