Amer­i­can food in Perth

Fremantle Gazette - - FRONT PAGE - Emily Boney

AMER­I­CANS have a knack when it comes to cre­at­ing and per­fect­ing junk food: burg­ers, hot dogs, french fries, you name it.

Perth has taken some of these Amer­i­can clas­sics and turned them up a few notches!

Here's where you can get new and im­proved ver­sions of Yan­kee favourites.

Meet and Bun Burg­ers

Freshly made brioche buns, thick, juicy burg­ers served at medium-rare per­fec­tion, and lo­cally sourced WA in­gre­di­ents? Sounds like a recipe for an Amer­i­can burger, only much bet­ter. If you're re­ally starv­ing, try the Lone Ranger, an ab­so­lutely mon­strous burger, com­plete with an onion ring in­side!

Was­sup Dog Hot Dogs

Hot dogs are a sta­ple in the States; you can't go to a sporting event or, re­ally, just down the street with­out see­ing or smelling them. Was­sup Dog has changed the game; their dogs are de­li­cious! Try the French­man: a beef sausage with camem­bert and apri­cot jam, among other gourmet top­pings.

Pret­zel Perth Pret­zels

Yes, yes, I know that big, soft pret­zels are more of a Ger­man thing, but they've be­come an Amer­i­can sta­ple, and Pret­zel Perth has man­aged to take this heav­enly snack and turn it into an art. Def­i­nitely try the Ev­ery­thing pret­zel, loaded with pep­per­oni, jalapenos, cheese and good­ness knows what else! Or, for some­thing sweet, you can't go wrong with Cook­ies and Cream.

Var­sity Burg­ers Chilli Cheese Fries

Cheese fries in the US, pou­tine in Canada, and in Perth, we call them a mas­ter­piece. Beer bat­tered hot chips, chilli con carne and molten hot cheese make up this de­li­cious dish, and now we won't have them any other way!
