Media Release: Jus Burgers New Refresh & New Menu

JUS’ BECAUSE YOU HAVEN’T HEARD FROM US IN A WHILE…

Hey Dudes, since our arrival at Xmas 2008 we’ve been going nonstop & we recognised the need for change whilst keeping all our old heroes: the Wagyu, Roo, organic, the mullet, those house made onion rings with garlic aioli, the panko crumbed . . . → Read More: Media Release: Jus Burgers New Refresh & New Menu

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

USA, Los Angeles - In-N-Out Burger

In-N_Out Burger - Double Double Cheeseburger With Fries

In-N-Out Burger is a fast food chain on the west coast of the US which serves burgers using quality ingredients that are made fresh to order with excellent service. I ordered the double double cheeseburger which was delicious. The fresh ingredients are evident on the first bite but the fries were average unfortunately. It’s a really enjoyable meal and I can see why they have a wall of celebrities who eat here and endorse it. What I really enjoyed and you will find this as you travel around the US, is the American cheddar, it has such a unique flavour and is so delicious. . . . → Read More: USA, Los Angeles – In-N-Out Burger

USA, Washington DC - Ben's Chilli Bowl

Ben's Chilli Bowl - Chilli Dog & Cheese Fries

Well for comfort fast food with a twist, Ben’s Chilli Bowl is a must visit. The plain old hot dog is transformed into something else with pickled, mustard, and a spicy chilli sauce which if eaten on it’s own is hot, but with the other elements, is perfect. It’s a delicious hot dog enjoyed with crispy fries covered in gooey cheese ooze of some sort. They’re really tasty but you don’t want to think about what’s in it. It’s comfort food so just go with it. And don’t forget to order the homemade lemonade to wash it down. The staff are friendly and pretty chilled. Awesome. . . . → Read More: USA, Washington DC – Ben’s Chilli Bowl

Jus Burgers - 1 Mar 2013

Jus Burgers - Pommy Burger

I thoroughly enjoyed the toasted Turkish bun while the beef patty had density and flavour but required just a little more seasoning. All the other ingredients rounded the meal out but the mayo possibly, was a little sour and dominated the burger after awhile. The chips were average at best so it was a little disappointing. Still, a solid meal that was enjoyable. . . . → Read More: Jus Burgers – 1 Mar 2013
