American food in Perth
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!
