2018 is set to be a big year for Perth burger fans. We've already had Short Order Burger Co set up shop in the city, then we had In-N-Out pop up for a day, and now we're getting Melbourne's cult burger joint Huxtaburger in Perth this year!
After opening six restaurants in Melbourne, Huxtaburger has chosen P-town as the home for its next burger joint and it will be joining the legions of amazing restaurants set to open in Hibernian Place on Hay Street in the CBD.
If you haven't had the pleasure of visiting Huxtaburger in Melbourne, then let us tell you what you've been missing out on. Think sweet bread buns filled with grass-fed beef, jalapenos, sriracha mayo and all the other good stuff, or go for the fried chicken with jalapeno mayo and slaw. Of course, they do your classic burgers and cheeseburgers—and gosh darn they are good—and if you're vego they've got you covered too with a couple of killer veggie options—spicy bean and quinoa patty anyone?
But the burger that will have you lining up on opening day has got to be the cheesus—double grass-fed beef patty, double cheese, cheesy mayo, mustard, tomato sauce and pickles.
We're keeping our fingers crossed that they'll be bringing their ice cream burger and, more importantly, their happy hour to Perth, because $5 beers and wines are what we're all about.
While you wait for these guys to arrive, here are Perth's best burgers.
