Ribs & Burgers - Lamb Ribs with Chicken and Beef Sliders

I chose the lamb ribs with a herb and lemon baste and also got beef and chicken sliders. The squeeze of lemon made all the difference to the ribs, the acidity balancing the meatiness and slight intensity of the marinade on the tasty tender lamb ribs. They were enjoyable, but not as good as the baby backed ribs. The chicken and beef sliders were tasty but lacked seasoning which let them down. I also chose the butcher’s salad which is very generous and contains plenty of dressing. A good choice along with the ribs. I’ll have to visit again to try the burgers. . . . → Read More: Ribs & Burgers – 31 Jul 2015

Ribs & Burgers - Baby Backed Pork Ribs With BBQ Glaze

It’s great to see the variety of restaurants springing up in Perth and Ribs & Burgers offers diners something new. I ordered the baby backed pork ribs with BBQ glaze, with chips (salad also available). The ribs are everything you would expect – tender, succulent, juicy, and delicious. There’s plenty of meat, manageable for one person, and I polished off each rib. The glaze has a lovely sweet sticky flavour without being too sweet and it makes the eating experience very enjoyable. Then there’s the golden brown crispy chips that are excellent and keep you coming back for more. They’re tasty at the beginning of the meal, the middle of the meal, and still at the end of the meal even if they have gone a bit cold. Totally stuffed but satisfied. I look forward to visiting again to try the other menu items. . . . → Read More: Ribs & Burgers – 15 Jul 2015

V Burger Bar - Chicken Remoulade & Onion Rings

I stopped in to the East Vic Park store to try an item from the new summer range. I opted for the chicken remoulade and also got a side of onion rings. The onion is well cooked and covered in a golden brown crunchy batter that stays crunchy right to the end. The chicken remoulade burger has a lovely flavoursome chicken patty with the coriander flavour coming through. It just needed a touch of seasoning. The exterior carries a lovely crunch. I really like the slightly sweet Turkish buns, and the tasty remoulade and aioli tie the salad together to produce a tasty burger. I’m stuffed. . . . → Read More: V Burger Bar – 28 Mar 2015

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 - 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
