Nights are warm and the Days are young … It’s been a very long time between meals. The last time we enjoyed a meal at Jus Burgers was in their Golden Years. (See what I did there?). Browsed their menu recently and was amazed at the wide variety of sliders on offer. Obviously time for a revisit.
Clarences Bar Restaurant, 566 Beaufort Street, Mount Lawley WA 6050, Phone 9228 9474.
It’s The Little Things In Life … Clarences is a Bar and well touted Foodie Haven on the Beaufort Street Strip. It is a sombre little venue with a small but lovely outdoor area and a split level dining room and bar. Sombre because it is quite dark inside but there is lively music playing and looking around the room, lots of smiles.
Sunshine Cafe Lunch Bar, 683A Beaufort Street, Mount Lawley WA 6050, Phone 9370 1165.
Good Things / Small Packages … Unassuming, modest, restrained and petite but packing a big punch food-wise. Sunshine Café and Lunch Bar in Mount Lawley is a place I’ve walked past many times. But recently I’ve been hearing good things about their Banh Mi and knew it was time to step inside.
Sporty Burgers … Varsity Burgers is the baby sister of the Varsity Bar in Nedlands. The Nedlands bar is a rowdy sports bar that happens to sell burgers. The Northbridge burger bar is situated right next to a rowdy sports bar. And, that is not by chance.
McDonalds Tuart Hill, Corner Morley Drive and Wanneroo Road, Tuart Hill WA 6060, Phone 9344 4988.
This Monkey’s Gone to Heaven … Discovered a Scottish restaurant recently that has just begun serving all day breakfast. The restaurant is very hip, very street and seems to draw enormous crowds. Not sure why I haven’t come across it before.
Flamed Burgers, Shop 7, 243-253 Walter Road, Morley WA 6062, Phone 9276 5471.
Déjà vu … As a venue Flamed Burgers is huge. The indoor area is big enough but then you walk outside and it’s like an arena. A funky arena. It’s a hot day and I see a water misting machine. We decide to sit outside and be mistified. See what I did there.
Burger Edge Watertown, Shop H9, Watertown Shopping Centre, 840 Wellington Street, West Perth WA 6005, Phone 9481 0338.
Peri Peri Chicken Burger … Shopping for a cheap doona cover at Watertown (formerly Harbour Town) the other day when Xena decided she needed to eat a Burger. There is only one burger place in the Centre so off we went to Burger Edge Watertown.
Rosemount Hotel, 459 Fitzgerald Street, North Perth WA 6006, Phone 9328 7062.
Fabulous Alfresco … Looking for somewhere to watch the Melbourne Cup we headed off to the Rosemount Hotel in North Perth. Or, the Rosie, as the locals call it. We joined a crowd of people in the lounge bar to watch the race.
V Burger Bar Floreat Forum, Shop 81/5 Howtree Place, Floreat WA 6014, Phone: 6161 0322.
Refreshingly Different … Decided to try a different burger chain. And, seeing the good reviews we settled on V Burger Bar at Floreat Forum. The place is well decorated, with the decor being very much to my taste. The staff were efficient and very friendly.
Rockpool Bar and Grill, Crown Metropol Perth, Great Eastern Highway, Burswood WA 6100, Phone 6252 1900.
Lush Surroundings … From the Crown Metropol Hotel atrium you enter Neil Perry’s famous Rockpool Bar and Grill. Walking through a long, fairly dark, tunnel of glass panels which are illuminated with candle like electric lights. Hidden behind the glass panels are the wine and beef cellars to entertain you on your way through to the restaurant.
