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.

Alfred’s Kitchen

Alfred’s Kitchen

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.

The Merrywell

The Merrywell

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.

Jus Burgers

Restaurant, Australian, Gluten-free, Vegetarian

Some 16 years ago, British import Justin Bell flew to Perth and hatched a dream of bringing gourmet burgers to the city. Today, Bell still works behind the grill most of the week, while his Jus Burgers brand and philosophy is spreading, and adheres to the ‘Buy West, Eat Best’ initiative. The resulting meat patties, from Amelia Park, Linley Valley and Blackwood Valley grass-fed Angus, are stupendously delicious. The best of the bunch are the wagyu beef Americano, the South East Asian and the Tiger Bay prawn.

Varsity Burgers

Restaurant, American

Varsity is an American-college themed sports bar and student spot within easy reach of the University of Western Australia. While the bar trades in American food such as chili cheese fries and hot wings, with American sports broadcasts playing on TV in the background, the real star here is the takeout window around the back. Here you can find Perth’s best American-style patties served on brioche buns. Salute the star spangled banner with offerings such as the Texan (double cheeseburger, bacon, tobacco onions and chipotle BBQ sauce) or the Presley (with banana and peanut butter).

V Burger

Restaurant, Australian, American

V Burger is a new favorite among Victoria Park locals and indeed, slowly coming to be regarded as one of the best burger joints in Perth. Regular customers praise the virtues of the teriyaki chicken burger (teriyaki glazed chicken breast, caramelized onions, lettuce, tomato, aioli and wasabi mayo), but don’t overlook the Mr. Pinky (seared Tasmanian salmon fillet, mixed gourmet lettuce,tomato, onion & honey mustard dressing) and the Eggy Steaky (tender steak, creamy Tasmanian brie, fried egg, Spanish onion jam, tomato, mixed gourmet lettuce and aioli).

It's the personal contact, the personal experiences. I love meeting people from all over the world... I really like getting to know everyone and feeling like I'm traveling with a group of friends.


I have so many places on my list, but I would really lobe to go to Africa. I consider myself an “adventure girl” and Africa feels like the ULTIMATE adventure!
