If there’s one thing that America got right, it’s the food and these days Perth is getting it right too.
From cheeseburgers, 22-inch pizzas and curly fries to boozy milkshakes, wings and the beloved Reuben sanga, here’s where to find all the best American food in Perth.
Praise be America!
Baked Cheesecake | Rockefeller
Rockefeller is the place to go if you’re craving American eats, and if it’s a New York-style baked cheesecake you’re after, the slices served here are everything you could ever want.
Big Tony’s Pepperoni Pizza | Mack Daddy's New York Slice
It’s no secret that everything is bigger in America, especially their pizzas. Mack Daddy’s knows this and that’s why they offer their INCREDIBLE pizzas in humungous 16 and 22 inch sizes. The hot and smoky pepperoni with grande mozzarella is what dreams are made of.
Bourbon Street Gumbo | Cafe New Orleans
Cafe New Orleans is the expert when it comes to soul food in Perth and we’re all about their Bourbon Street gumbo. Be sure to grab a slice of key lime pie while you’re there!
Reece’s Bar | Varnish On King
Peanut butter ice cream and s’mores…what more could you want in a dessert? Varnish on King, you’ve done it again!
Mac & Cheese Bites | The Merrywell
Coated in Doritos dust, it’s not surprising The Merrywell’s mac and cheese bites are addictive AF. Served with smoky BBQ sauce, once you pop you can’t stop!
Cheeseburger | Varsity Burgers
Varsity does burgers well. Especially their cheeseburger (and double cheeseburger for that matter). Served with pickles and their special mayo, we can’t get enough!
Reuben Sandwich | East Village
Corned beef, pickles, sauerkraut, swiss cheese, coleslaw and home made dressing are what makes a Reuben sandwich de-freaking-licious. East Village knows this and they do it well.
Milkshake | Jack Rabbit Slim's
Whether you like your milkshakes naughty (boozy) or nice (alco-free) Jack Rabbit Slim’s is the place to be. Get yours in chocolate, peanut butter, salted caramel, spearmint, strawberry or vanilla flavour with a side of fries, obv.
Cheese Sticks And Curly Fries | johnny's Burgers
Crumbed Monterey Jack cheese and crispy and crunchy curly fries. Johnny’s Burgers has us drooling all the time. Any of their burgers will make you happy too.
Ribs | Side Door BBQ
The ribs at Side Door BBQ are finger licking good, especially when smothered in their house made espresso BBQ sauce.
Waffles | RoyAl's Chicken & Burgers
Victoria Park and Wembley
It’s tough pickings between the buttermilk fried chicken and bacon waffles and the toasted s’mores waffles at RoyAl’s Chicken & Burgers so, don’t decide, just get both!
Banoffee Jar | Miss Kitty's Saloon
Desserts in jars win us over every time, especially when they’re filled with bananas, praline, whipped cream, crumbled choc wafer swirls and banoffee cream. Good job Miss Kitty’s!
Cobb Salad | Varsity Bar
The token salad of ‘Merica, if cobb salad wasn’t smothered in ranch dressing we wouldn’t have a bar of it. This one from Varsity is loaded with festive greens, corn, carrots, cucumber, cherry tomatoes, celery, red onion, bell peppers and roasted walnuts and is best enjoyed with a large serving of loaded fries.
Fried Chicken | Meat Candy
Meat Candy does American-style fried chicken best. Served southern, medium or hot style with your choice of a side (get the coleslaw), they have some deeeelish sauces including ranch and blue cheese, yum!
Corn Bread | Old Faithful
Gotta love a big serve of cawn brayed (corn bread) and Old Faithful serve theirs with maple butter, even better!
S’mores | Brooklyn Lounge
Best devoured between two (unless you’re us), the s’mores at Brooklyn Lounge are the bomb.com. Nutella and melty marshmallow sandwiched between two giant choc chip cookies. Get around it!
Lucky Charms | West End Deli
West End Deli Cereal & Sandwich Bar serves up cereal goals. Their Fluffy Bunnies bowl is loaded with lucky charms, malted milk crumble, toasted marshmallows, milo and white chocolate, and will hit you right in the taste buds.
Chicken Wings | Piggy Food Co
Choose between house BBQ or smoked chipotle sauce and ranch or blue cheese dressing at Piggy Food Co and have a wingin’ good time.
Pretzels | Pretzel Perth
As they say at Pretzel Perth, it’s all good when it comes to pretzels. The guys here serve theirs sweet and savoury. Our faves are the cinnamon and caramel and the pepperoni and melted cheese.
Hot Dog | Frank'd
Any of the hot dogs from Frank’d will float your boat, but the Snoopy, stuffed with macaroni and melted cheese, is pretty darn glorious. And it’s only 13 dollaridoos (or bucks as they’d say in America)!
Bagel | Satchmo Cafe
Whether you like your bagels simple with schmear or loaded with smoked salmon, bacon steak or corned beef, Satchmo have your cravings covered.
