Cultural Commons is a burger joint owned and headed by Chef Jon Liu (Ex Deco Cafe, Camberwell), located in Springvale. Yes, Springvale is much more well known for their Asian stores, markets and restaurants as well as various Vietnamese food but Cultural Commons break the rules. 2 minutes walking from the Springvale Station with modern stand out signs, different than any other restaurants around quickly become one of the young locals favourite.

I live close by and a big fan of burger, it only comes natural I visit Cultural Commons to satisfy my burger cravings. Unique interior design by Studio Equator, modern, vibrant transported you to a whole other place that does not feel like Springvale. Sit over 80 people and accepts large booking of 10+ more. I started  my lunch with their Special of the Day; Pop Corn Milkshakes ($7). I love pop corn flavour and this milkshakes lift up to it, taste like caramel popcorn with a lil bit of saltiness and creaminess topped with salty pretzels and crunchy fresh caramel popcorn. I would had this milkshakes again and the price is cheaper than most milkshakes in Melbourne right now.

The American Dream - 180g grass-fed beef patty, cheese, tomato, lettuce, red onions, tomato sauce, mild mustard, mayo on a toasted brioche bun served with chips and aioli ($23) with onion rings ($8). My mom barely ate these days, she'a petit Asian woman who worried about her figure a lot even though she still looks fresh in her 50's. So we decided to just order one burger and one extra side to share it. The brioche was fluffy, warm, moist and sweet, the beef was tender, perfectly cooked and the sauces tight everything all together. Chips was crunchy and aioli was creamy and tasty, complete with tasty, crunchy onion rings and the sauces that comes with it was creamy with a lil bit of spiciness. We were pleased with everything.

I head their Sticky Date Pudding - warm butterscotch sauce, vanilla ice cream and strawberry ($10) was good so we ordered it. My mom rarely like sticky date since normally it comes as a very sweet  and dense dessert but Cultural Commons version of it was fluffy, perfect sweetness and comes in a very generous size. Perfect ending to our lunch.

During our time at Cultural Commons, there were no single person besides us enter the restaurant but the staff said they are busy at night and weekends. I personally like my experience at Cultural Commons and I would love to come back.
