Mooroopna’s Verong Vittles’ newest burger will be launched to the rev of engines tomorrow. The restaurant has a large range of burgers and owner Kerrie Verhoeven could not resist adding one that paid tribute to HSV (Holden Special Vehicles).
“We tend to try and relate our burgers to something that means things to us,” she said. “I love HSVs so I made a HSV burger.”
Kerrie said as part of the launch of the HSV Burger there would be a HSV display across the road from the store on McLennan St.
“It’ll give people something to look at while they try out one of the burgers,” she said. Burgers are known to be Verong Vittles’ specialty and although Kerrie was tightlipped on what was in the HSV Burger, she promised it would be well worth a visit to the restaurant.
“It’s going to be big but not that big where you can’t handle it, where it’s silly big,” she said.
“It’s going to be a decent size with top quality ingredients.”
The HSV Burger Reveal Day will include about 40 to 50 HSVs and there will be trophies awarded to the best two-door HSV and best four-door HSV.
“It’ll be a decent day and a good day out for the family,” Kerrie said.
During the event Melbourne’s Naish Art will be there to capture the day and a HSV GTSR will also be on show. Kerrie said it would be an exciting day and she was amazed by how big it had grown.
“We were just hoping to have a couple of HSVs on show to introduce the burger but we’ve been lucky enough to have Maloo Owners Victoria from Melbourne jump on board and they’re going to bring a heap of vehicles up so it grew from that,” she sad.
“I’ve got a Maloo myself so I know a few different people as well with HSVs so I’ve just contacted them, let them know and they’re bringing friends so it’s expanded and hopefully it’s going to be a great show.”
Kerrie said people would be travelling from Melbourne, Echuca, Bendigo, Ballarat and Geelong to exhibit their HSVs. Kerrie said Verong Vittles was known to release new burgers but had never launched one on such a large scale as this.
“We’ve made a big day of it,” she said.
“Most of these cars have never been here before so Shepparton and Mooroopna will see things they’ve never seen.”
Kerrie said they were thankful to HSV Maloo Owners Victoria for embracing the event and organising to bring HSV cars to Mooroopna, and Mooroopna’s Freer’s Panel Works for donating prizes.
