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!
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
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!
