While oddly enough it suits some guys, in others it evokes bad 1970s fashion and movies, if you know what I mean. But it’s all a bit of fun and for a worthy cause in highlighting men’s health, specifically prostate cancer and depression in men, so support your local moustache grower.

and lemon dressed rocket topped with a poached egg
I noted its grand presence as the plate was set down in front of me, the mostly vegetable stack standing steadily tall. Starting from the bottom up, everything sits on a nest of rocket leaves, slightly acidic, overdressed ones. The potato hash sits in the nest like a golden egg, or at least a golden, flat, compressed pile of potato matchsticks. It’s crunchy on the edges and tastes like hot chips.
On top of this were a couple of slices of fresh tomato and warmed ham, which is then topped with a poached egg and all gate-kept by two grilled spears of green asparagus. There’s no way of eating the stack without partially demolishing the plating and the abundance of fresh ingredients makes for a pretty healthy brunch choice.

A picture perfect sunny side-up egg peeked out from beneath the burger bun top followed by a bacon rasher, melted cheese, the thick and juicy wagyu beef pattie, shredded beetroot, a lettuce leaf and a canned pineapple ring somewhere within the salad-y stuff.
Overall, the burger was a bit on the sweet side, probably from the pineapple and beetroot. And it was definitely messy eating, with the egg yolk spilling its goodies from the very first instance, followed by ‘bloody’ beetroot splatters and saucy bits ending up all over the wooden board and those eating it. The might have also been bloody juices from the wagyu pattie.
