Bloggers turn burger creators
JUS Burgers Leederville has added the Cubanos burger to its menu just for this week following a ‘create your dream burger’ competition at the recent Light Up Leederville Carnival.
Director Justin Bell invited food bloggers Briony Whitton – Eatmeetswest – and Michelle Rechichi – Foodie Cravings – on stage with him during festivities to create their burgers.
Food ambassador Don Hancey and celebrity chef Anna Gare were the taste testers.
Whitton’s Cubanos burger – beef patty, Worcestershire sauce, American mustard, Swiss cheese, ham and pickles on a Jean Pierre Sancho brioche bun – will be on sale this week and Rechichi’s Srircha – beef patty (infused with Srircha), bacon, cheese, avocado and garlic aioli, also served on a lightly toasted brioche bun – was on sale last week.
The success of the competition has prompted Bell to repeat a similar contest.
“I have customers come up to me all the time with wacky and crazy burgers suggestions and feel this type of competition will be a fun way to get our customers involved,” he said.
