burger boy challenged to do the fat boy challenge at Novembar’s!

Novembar’s, 4 Bayley Street, Dianella, (08) 9275 7788
Open lunch & dinner every day except Tuesdays

After a few wines & champagnes with the girls @ work, burger boy picked me up to goto Novembar’s for a Friday night feed.

I was egging burger boy on to do Novembar’s fat boy challenge which involved eating the fat boy burger (rrp $28) as quickly as possible, the longer you take to eat the more you have to pay – each minute costs a dollar. burger boy thought about it long and hard but after staring at the fat boy burger and evaluating the 7 patties or so for a good 10 minutes he turned down the challenge, in fear we didn’t have enough cash on us should he struggle to eat the burger.

So burger boy had the Movembar triple cheese burger ($15) instead which he finished in no time.

I had the poor man’s package which was a mini burger (fits in the palm of my hand) with lots of fresh chunky chips and a drink ($9). Check out the massive burger size difference between mine and burger boy’s below.

The burgers were delicious, patties just melted into our mouths, chips were tasty/not oily, bread perfect and the owner, Minh, is a character definitely worth meeting! It’s a small little place in the middle of Dianella suburbia that kind of looks like a deli/fish & chips shop – you wouldn’t find it if you weren’t looking.

What sets Novembar’s apart from other burger joints is the creativity behind the burgers and the cool eating challenges which makes eating the more fun. In addition to having the usual traditional burgers of any size on the menu, there’s a range of burgers that you wouldn’t get anywhere else (or think about eating before coming to Novembar’s) i.e. the fried ice-cream burger, red & runny nose burger, Aussie boy don’t cry burger – see the pic of the menu below for the full list!

We will definitely be coming back – lets see if burger boy will be up for the fat boy challenge next time!

foodie cravings

I’m a foodie who enjoys trying new food anywhere / any place (restaurants, cafes, bars, market stalls, fast food joints…anywhere just name it!) both in Perth, Western Australia and on my travels. I’m not your ordinary foodie, I’m often described as ‘fussy’ but I really really do love my food - I guess just not everything that’s put on my plate. Though, my other half, ‘burger boy’, eats most foods so I’ll be blogging about what he eats too…and as the name implies, burgers will be a regular foodie blog for all you burger lovers outthere. I love showcasing my yummy food finds with pics so I thought why not share my passion for food with other foodies with my blog, foodie cravings. Follow my food journey as I discover new keepers and rave about my all-time favourites.
