burger boy meets burger bistro

We’ve been hearing great things about burger bistro especially since the Leederville store opened so burger boy and I went after work tonight.

It was a full on work day so I was ready to get right into my burger and a good glass of cider!

Cider-BurgerBistro

Our bowl of chips came out first which was great to snack on as we waited for our burgers.

The chips were really delicious, it was crispy and there was just the right amount of seasoning. We chose the tomato relish and the garlic mayo as the dipping sauces. The tomato relish was probably too chunky for dipping chips for me but the garlic mayo was yum.

Now for the main event!

I had The Big Smoke beef burger $15

TheBigSmoke-BurgerBistro

Hand made CAAB Angus beef patty with pancetta bacon, emmental cheese the burger bistro’s garlic mayo and a smokey barbeque sauce on a bed of salads.

  • The wagyu patty was really tender and cooked well done as burger boy had requested for me.
  • The bun although big was soft enough to compress with my hands and bite into
  • The smokey BBQ sauce and garlic mayo worked really well together
  • And I loved the pancetta bacon

burger boy had the Gourmet New Yorker burger ($16) in memory of our burger fest at Five Napkins Burgers in NYC last year.

Hand made CAAB Angus beef patty with dill pickles, balsamic caramalised red onions and a vintage aged cheddar on a bed of salad.

burger boy loved the beef patty and thought the pickle combined with caramalised onion and melted cheddar cheese was out of this world. He was also quite happy that it was easy to eat as he usually walks out of burger joints with a bit of the ‘burger’ on his face.

The arty décor was nice and it was a very spacious restaurant – be good for casual group functions. We sat on wooden benches which looked out onto the Leederville strip.

Service was great, we were greeted on entry, offered menus and invited to take a seat as we were deciding and to come up to order when we were ready. Being our first time to burger bistro, this definitely made an impression. The drinks, chips and burgers all came within 5 minutes or so of each other which meant we always had something to eat/drink as we were chatting away.

A great week night out and I felt satisfied but not over full. Although there was no room for dessert which is saying something!

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.

    Glad you liked it, I love their chips, the burgers are decent, definately better than Jus Burgers. I went to Jus Burgers on Friday… absolutely disappointing for the price you pay, the chips were undercooked and I didn’t get enough sauce in my burger. Lackers is still my favourite, these gourmet burgers are nice but they don’t have that wow factor for me.

      Yea burger boy doesn’t rate Jus Burgers either as first (and only) time we went there, his burger patty was burnt and that was after a long wait.

      I always seem to go the same thing at Lackers – good ole pork ribs…will have to let bb know to try their burgers next time!
