MELBOURNE | One Plus Piece (Melbourne Central) is a recently opened burger joint in Melbourne Central, from the team behind Balwyn cafe, One Plus Piece Cafe. I recently visited for What’s On Melbourne.
Like its sister venue, the new spot is a homage to the popular Japanese anime and manga, One Piece. Where the CBD location differs is in its focus. Unlike the larger menu of the cafe, this spot is all about Asian-fusion burgers, fries, and shakes.
The Gear 5 burger is one of the most popular ones on the menu. It’s a big burger featuring two 120g wagyu beef patties, grilled onions, mushrooms, two slices of bacon, two slices of American cheese, peanut butter, cheese sauce, and mayo. Also popular are the sushi burgers, which replace bread buns with sushi rice “buns” and crispy nori. The fried chicken one is a highlight.
For sides, One Plus Piece offers things like fries, onion rings, nori chips, and fried chicken. Check out the salted duck egg fried chicken wings, and the loaded fries. The latter are topped with Sriracha and maple bacon jam, cheese, jalapenos, aioli, and tomato sauce.
To drink, its sodas with flavours like butterfly pea lemonade, matcha apple, and salted pink grapefruit. There’s also shakes – traditional flavours and ones topped with things like boba pearls and mochi. The black sesame shake with mochi is well worth a try.
