I worked for a few weeks in the curious little section of Balwyn called Deepdene. I’ve finished there now, but on my last day I ate an awesome lamb burger on Turkish bread at a rather unlikely place – the very genteel Town and Country Gardens nursery cafe on Whitehorse Rd. It’s frequented by women in gym gear with young children, ladies who lunch and retirees. Don’t let that discourage you – this is among the best of the limited options in the area. The $11 burger contained fresh salad, a plump lamb mince patty, tangy yoghurt and yummy beetroot chutney.
