Sometimes you’ve just got to have a juicy burger, and in Perth there are plenty of great options to fill that need. We list the best places for a delicious patty in this Western Australian city.
A historic Perth burger institution, Alfred’s Kitchen is the city’s oldest roadside patty joint. It was named after its founder, Alfred Cook, an English migrant who began selling hamburgers from a small caravan on a site near the majestic sugar gums of Stirling Square almost half a century ago. The menu has now expanded to 40 lipsmackingly good, hearty burgers, traditionally enjoyed with Alfred’s legendary pea and ham soup. Patrons sitting by the fire pit out front can enjoy bacon burgers, lentil burgers, steak burgers and even a tropical Ham and Pineapple burger. Yet it is the humble and good-value hamburger that may be most popular with regulars.
Pack several napkins for your trip to The Merrywell, because these burgers are seriously juicy. Operating with an aim to bring American-style food to the city, the restaurant’s slider standouts include the Memphis BBQ Angus burger, made with pulled pork, coleslaw, cheddar, and fries. The D-Man & G-Mac BLT (pork belly and pancetta, sunny side up egg, rocket, feta, tomato, bacon aioli, bacon bread, onion rings) is also outstanding.
