Matty was over from Melbourne for the weekend so we decided to catch up along with Mitchell as well. We met up for lunch at Burger Bistro in Leederville.
With its flagship store being in Shafto lane in the city, it has opened its next branch in Leederville just meters away from Jus Burgers.
Taking over the old Moda café in Leederville, the bistro has a really open feel to it. With clean white walls and huge dining area both indoors and outdoors, I also loved their exposed ceilings and awesome paintings on their walls.
At least, when you’re there there isn’t a queue out the doors unlike some of the other burger bars. There was plenty of room but I’m sure it gets really busy in the evenings.
We met up at lunch time on a Saturday and there were loads of tables to choose from. They did have a steady line of patrons coming in and out of the bistro.
They have a good range of different burgers from the usual beef burgers, chicken burgers, lamb burgers, a Spanish chorizo burger and one of their specials was a pork burger too. If you’re not into any meat burgers, there are plently of other options as well from vegetable burgers and chickpea burgers. And if you’re not into your carbs, then you can also order any of their burgers breadless. The cost per burger ranges between $12 to $16.
The three of us ordered a burger each. I had their Gourmet New Yorker which was hand made CAAB Angus beef patty with balsamic caramelised red onions, dill pickles, vintage aged cheddar on a bed of their green leaf salad and served with New Norcia spelt sourdough roll. I actually swapped their dill pickles with the shredded beetroot & orange zest tzatziki as I love my beetroot and what an awesome burger it was. You can have your burger patty cooked to your liking. The patty was thick and delicious with that smoky goodness from being on the grill. The balsamic caramelised red onions were fantastic too.
Matty ordered their Classic Chicken burger which was Mt Barker free range chicken breast with a fresh leaf salad, roma tomato, Spanish mayo and Burger Bistro’s own garlic mayonnaise. His burger looked really good.
Mitchell’s order was Captain America and it was again the CAAB Angus beef patty with premium aged cheddar, dill pickle, ketchup and classic American mustard on a bed of their leaf salad. Another amazing looking burger. I wished I could eat all their burgers because they all looked great!
Patrons order at the counter and it didn’t take long for our orders to be served. Also, it is fully licensed. It’s definitely a place for me to head back again and try out their other burgers.
On the whole, 9 for the food quality, 8 ½ for the atmosphere, 8 ½ for pricing and 8 ½ for service.
