Jus Burgers - 14 Aug 2014

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

wpid-20140411_grilld_baabaalambburger.jpg

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

Grill'd @ East Victoria Park - 3 Dec 2013

Grill'd - Hot Hombre Burger & Chips

I was a little apprehensive about accepting an offer to visit the new Grill’d store at East Victoria Park, with complimentary burger and drinks provided, after my first visit to Grill’d produced a rather underwhelming burger. However, this was not the case this time around and the three burgers I sampled were delicious. Grill’d serve decent sized burgers that pack a punch in terms of flavour and that also extends to their herbed chips. The burgers are cooked perfectly, nice and moist, tender, well filled and not at all messy. The summer sunset was delicious but a little sweet due to the presence of the pineapple. The hot hombre certainly lived up to it’s name providing plenty of chill kick. But the burger that did it for me was the Baa Baa Lamb burger. Wow, that was fantastic! I had an excellent experience as did my friends. What was really great is giving Grill’d a second go certainly changed my mind as to what they’re all about and I certainly would come back to try their other burgers, especially that Baa Baa Lamb burger – not just a taste, the whole experience. I can see why Grill’d is popular as many of my work colleagues head down to the Shafto Lane store. I think I’ll be heading their soon too. . . . → Read More: Grill’d @ East Victoria Park – 3 Dec 2013

USA, Anaheim - Ruby's Diner

Ruby's Diner - French Toast

The diner is something iconic and prevalent in so many US TV shows and movies, but so foreign to those in Australia, so the chance to visit one was fantastic. Stepping into Ruby’s Diner was like being transported back in time to a different era. It has such a cool feel about it, yet still is modern enough to not look out of place but still hold it’s character. While the service in the US is excellent, I particularly appreciated the very friendly and genuine service we received here. There’s plenty to choose from the menu and I ordered beignettes, strawberry French toast, and grapefruit juice. The beignettes are French doughnuts dusted with icing and served with a small dish of warmed maple syrup. They were really delicious. The thick slices of delicious French toast were equally fantastic. Along with a generous serving of (well everything on the plate was generous) strawberries, strawberry syrup, maple syrup and whipped cream, this was quite an unbelievably naughty and delicious breakfast. The grapefruit juicy (also generous) was definitely required to cut through the sweetness. What an awesome meal, experience, service, everything! We were impressed. . . . → Read More: USA, Anaheim – Ruby’s Diner
