Kingston lakeside Food Caravan

By Duke - 5 June 2009 23

Driving beside the lake down Kingston way last night, just before the Old Bus Depot Markets, I noticed a food caravan has set up shop right near the shoreline.

How long has it been there, does it have a name and, most importantly, is the food any good?

What’s Your opinion?

Jackal, what time do they close up? Sounds like I’ll have to get there early.

Keep meaning to try this Brod Burgery, I’ve parked near it and noticed the steady trade. I think they have some dinky little tables set up, too. It’s good these types of outfits are springing up around town, it’s in a perfect spot and sounds like word of mouth is doing the trick.
Typos on menus are funny though… I’m not sure if they really meant “rations” of bacon or RASHERS of bacon!

When I was walking home from work the other night I noticed Mandalay all lit up and someone scrubbing off the graffiti. Looks like it will be back in business soon.

Ant, the guys who run the place are real characters and I have had to argue with them that they have given me the wrong change (in my favour) and they couldn’t work out why I would admit that!

Dont get the deluxe burger unless you intend to share it.

I made the mistake of attempting one by myself (took it home) and spent the rest of the day on the couch snoozing…

+1 to these positive comments. Brodburger is EXCELLENT.

I’ve done the entire menu – fantastic bugers

Appearances can be deceptive. This is not your average food van that attracts drunken people like moths to a flame, in fact this joint shuts up shop quite early to avoid this crowd. Rather, they provide gourmet burgers at reasonable – but not cheap – prices (less than ten bucks from memory). I had a chicken burger there recently and it was better than ones I’ve had at pretentious cafes. Highly recommended for a pre-Green Square snack. It’s been there about 3 months.

eh? What’s this “amusing service”?! I’m intrigued.

Ate there twice this week and intend to go back next week. Good burgers (amazing burgers, really), amusing service and great fries.

I’ve been dropping in for feeds there since it opened and honestly recommend it. Don’t be put off by what seems at first glance to be pricey food, it’s not for what you get. Double chicken deluxe yum.

Thanks Ryan, I must have missed that thread. When I first saw it I thought it was people camping! Also I thought a greasy food caravan would be too low-brow for Kingston…..will have to do the dirty on RJ’s one night (Shhhh).

I think I’ve tried all their burgers now. I think they’re excellent.

That’s the Brod Burgers van! Seems quite popular, I often see people there especially motorbikes.
