Jus Burgers – 8 Mar 2012

Cuisine: Burgers
Location: Northbridge (other locations available)

I have a more recent food review of Jus Burgers here.

On our way to Pot Black and Zapata’s the other day, we passed Jus Burgers in Northbridge. I haven’t visited, the creator, Justin Bell’s burger chain but was keen to visit. Fortunately, as part of the Eat Drink Perth 2012 Passport which contained several dining offers, there was an offer for Jus Burgers. For just $10, I was able to order a delicious Vasse Valley Wagyu burger with a touch of wasabi mayo and also order a freshly prepared mango and ginger smoothie for $5. While I was waiting, I picked up a menu and had a closer look at their range. Priced very reasonable with burgers ranging from $10 – $15, covering various fillings from vegetarian to meats such as beef, chicken, lamb, fish, kangaroo, and boerwors, there’s something to suit a range of palettes. Each of the burgers are made with a warmly toasted Turkish bun which was delicious; house made aioli and relish; Spanish onion; tomato and lettuce. They also have sides of chips, onion rings, and salads, plus fresh juices, smoothies and other cold drinks.  I was interested reading their no freezer policy meaning they source their produce fresh and daily from a range of West Australian suppliers. Not sure what approach various eateries like this take, but it seems this chain is like a chef’ed up restaurant style burger chain. And why not? Wherever one eats we should be getting the best and freshest produce in our meals.

Anyway, I was served my burger with a knife stuck in the middle of it standing up vertically. Rather unusual but I guess that’s Jus Burger’s signature. Upon picking up the well filled burger, sans knife, it was dripping with what I assume to be meat juices. Yes, it was a very messy affair but the burger was delicious. I really enjoyed the toasted Turkish bun and the chunky, meaty and dense Wagyu beef pattie which didn’t skimp on meat. The wasabi mayo didn’t have any heat but all the elements of the burger worked in unison. I felt the pattie maybe needed a little more salt and maybe the pattie needed to be rested for a short while to retain the juices and retain the moisture. It did have a lovely charred and smoky flavour. Fortunately, serviettes were provided which cleaned up the mess over my hands. The mango smoothie was also delicious. Quite thick due to the mango, lemon is also added to give a slightly tart flavour and along with the ginger, the acidity cuts through the slight richness of the mango and milk. An enjoyable lunch that kept me full for well into the evening.


Jus Burgers Food Review Summary

Verdict: I was looking forward to trying out the meal offerings at Jus Burgers and I thoroughly enjoyed the toasted Turkish bun, the char grilled and smoky flavour that penetrated the chunky Wagyu beef pattie, and all the other ingredients that rounded the meal out. It is a messy affair but why not get your hands dirty enjoying this burger. The mango, lemon and ginger smoothy was an excellent combination and balance in quantities to create a tasty enjoyable drink.
