V Burger Bar - East Victoria Park - 22 Nov 2014

V Burger Bar - Lambaabaa Burger

I stopped in to the East Vic Park store and ordered the lambaabaa and onion rings. The service out of the kitchen was quick and in no time I was feasting on golden brown, perfectly deep fried, not oily, delicious onion rings with aioli. The burger followed a short time later and it was very tasty with the relish and yoghurt providing flavour and moistness to the burger, along with the tasty Turkish buns. The lamb patty is chunky and well cooked, but lacking seasoning and punch. The other ingredients mask these deficiencies so the overall burger is tasty, but it could be so much more. . . . → Read More: V Burger Bar – East Victoria Park – 22 Nov 2014

Johnny's Burger Joint - 24 Oct 2014

Johnny's Burger Joint - The Troublemaker

Not by design, but I’ve been visiting a few burger places of late so an invite to the soft opening of Johnny’s Burger Joint was just what the doctor ordered. I really liked the menu which takes on a distinctly American theme and offers items that you don’t see in Perth. A diner menu for the day plus burgers which keep on being served well into the night. Nothing fancy, just full of heart and flavour. They look that way and initially taste that way, but with each bite the burger’s ingredients transform into something special. It just keeps on getting tastier and tastier. Wash it down with a milkshake, grab some sides like cheese sticks, curly fries, cheese and bacon fries, chilli cheese fries or grab some buffalo wings, and you’re in heaven. . . . → Read More: Johnny’s Burger Joint – 24 Oct 2014

V Burger Bar - Piggy Back

After my invite earlier in the week to V Burger Bar in Floreat to try their new brioche line (priced at $14.50) comprising the Americana, Space Mushroom, and Piggy Back, I vowed to return. I enjoyed the Americana on the night, but missed out on the Piggy Back. The Piggy Back far surpassed the Americana. The sweet BBQ sauce, the chilli kick from the jalapeños, the moistness of the aioli, the freshness of the coleslaw, the tender flavoursome pork, the crunch from the battered deep fried onions, and the slight sweetness of the brioche bun made for a burger that I thoroughly enjoyed. If they just warm or toast the buns, the burger will be even better! V Burger Bar are having a special offer – half price on this new range for 17 -19 October 2014 only.

V Burger - Americana

I was pleased to received an invite to V Burger in Floreat to try their new brioche line comprising the Americana, Space Mushroom, and Piggy Back. The night was a lovely affair meeting the owners and other bloggers, enjoying a few of their sides in the delicious golden crumbed haloumi sticks and crumbed mushrooms with blue cheese sauce, before the tough choice, which of the 3 burgers to order. I went with the Americana which was delicious. The touch of sweetness in the brioche bun serves to highlight the savoury elements of the acidic tang from the pickles, the gooey melted cheese, and the chunky beef patty. Packed full of ingredients, the burger is delicious, more so with some lovely chips. I was also surprised to receive a gift bag and I thoroughly enjoyed the chocolate brownie which satisfied my craving for something sweet to finish off the meal. The burgers are priced at $14.50.

Jus Burgers - Onion Rings

After an invite to try out the new refreshed menu, there was one burger I hadn’t tried from the diner style burger section – South East Asian Burger. And some onion rings. The onion rings were perfectly deep fried, coated in a golden brown batter and thoroughly enjoyed with the creamy garlic aoili. But the star is the burger and it didn’t disappoint. You have the choice of protein – vegetarian, beef, chicken, and lamb. I went with the latter and after it was served, my mouth salivated as I dove in. The glistening brioche buns are really tasty and hold all the ingredients together. The sweet chilli relish is THE element providing the South East Asian inspiration in tying all the ingredients together. The sweet and chilli kick adds so much flavour to the salad and Asian slaw, while you slowly savour the perfectly cooked flavoursome lamb patty. The coconut lime dressing adds further zing to the salad and the crunchy bits of shallots and garlic are another surprise waiting to be discovered. A big thumbs up from me. Totally satisfied. . . . → Read More: Jus Burgers – 14 Aug 2014

Jus Burgers - Americano Slider and Pulled Pork Slider

I’ve visited Jus Burgers before and particularly enjoyed the Wagyu beef burger, but on this visit courtesy of owner Justin Bell, he treated me to a sample of sliders from the new refreshed menu, as well as a number of sides. The old favourites are still on the menu and they now serve beer and wine, but I really enjoyed the new additions. The Americano is excellent, a taste of the US right their on your plate with a delicious well cooked Wagyu beef pattie, pickles, ketchup, American Kraft cheese, and mustard providing the flavours typical of a burger you’ll find in the US. The pulled pork packs plenty of bold flavour, chunks of meat that pull apart are immediately uplifted by the delicious flavour packed sauce. The Shark Bay prawn slider also carries a strong flavour of the sea in the prawn packed pattie surrounded by a very crunchy batter. For the sides, the Parmesan chips with truffle oil are unique and tasty, I really liked the refreshing palette cleansing digestive aiding Spanish slaw with a lovely dressing, and first time trying Jus Burgers famed onion rings which didn’t disappoint. The deep golden brown coloured batter encasing chunks of onion rings perfectly cooked, no rawness and not mushy, delivered on flavour, taste, crunch and looks. The sweet potato wedges were a surprise for me, partnering perfectly with the hit of chilli from the Serrano sauce offsetting the sweetness of the wedges. Finally, some lovely creamy aoili to enjoy with the chips, onion rings, and wedges made them taste even better. The new refreshed menu offers plenty of choice among burgers, sides, slaws, and now beer & wine. It’s a cool relaxed vibe to kick back and enjoy a burger so if you haven’t visited Jus Burgers, what are you waiting for? . . . → Read More: Jus Burgers – 24 Jul 2014

Missy Moos Burgers - 7 Jun 2014

Missy Moos - Jack & Jill Burger

First time to Missy Moos Burger bar in Mt Hawthorn where I ordered the Jack & Jill. I received a well filled burger with a lovely bun encasing all the ingredients. The caramelised onions were delicious and the soft avocado provided a lovely moistness and a little bit of creaminess. The slight saltiness of the bacon provided additional flavour, but I found the well cooked beef patty lacking oomph in the flavour department and for me, was rather underwhelming. It was an enjoyable burger but I can’t say it’s one I’d go back for when there are other gourmet burger bars that produce a far tastier burger. . . . → Read More: Missy Moos Burgers – 7 Jun 2014

Grill'd @ Shafto Lane - 11 April 2014

I entered the Grill’d Shafto Lane store with high expectations of that small bite I had of the Baa Baa Lamb burger. When it was served and I took my first bite I knew those expectations were met. A burger packed full of flavour and freshness, the sweet tomato relish sticks out immediately, but then the strong flavour of the cheese takes over with the soft avocado sticking to the cheese providing a creamy richness. The salad and herbed mayo add different flavours while the delicious wholemeal bun holding everything together is delicious. But the star of the burger is the lamb. A perfectly cooked and flavoursome patty, it just oozes flavour and I’d have to say lamb is far tastier than the beef variety. The burger hit the mark in all departments and I thoroughly enjoyed it. . . . → Read More: Grill’d @ Shafto Lane – 11 April 2014

The Burger Bistro Pop Up - 22 Feb 2014

Burger Bistro Pop Up - USA Burger

The site at Beaufort Street for the Burger Bistro’s latest creation is unique, casual, relaxed but still comfortable and cool in the summer heat of the day. I was a guest of the Burger Bistro Pop Up restaurant which has a new concept focusing on prime ingredients with a completely different menu to their other locations, carrying a strong American theme. I ordered the USA Burger and it effectively represented the USA experience with the tart pickles, ketchup, strong flavour of thickly sliced cheese and that unique mustard taste transporting me back to my travels in the US. The slightly sweet brioche bun ties it all together and one can’t go paste the star of the burger, the delicious, moist, juicy beef patty. Along with shoestring fries and the fresh ingredients of the coleslaw shining through in a just coated dressing which isn’t sweet, I was pretty full. However, there’s always room for dessert and the pastry chef’s family recipe of tiramisu was delicious. Soft, light, tasty with the touch of bitterness from the sprinkled high quality chocolate, it was a dessert that once you have one spoonful you can’t stop. . . . → Read More: The Burger Bistro Pop Up – 22 Feb 2014
