Before heading off to the premiere of Woody Allen’s new movie Magic in Moonlight we took the opportunity to stop in at the Subiaco Jus Burgers for the traditional premovie meal. Burgers!
Good news for burger lovers, Jus Burgers has recently revamped the menu. All of the classic favourites such as the wagyu and cheeseburger have remained. Sliders (smaller sized burgers) and diner style burgers such as pulled pork are new and offer more variety. Plus there are a couple of options for altering a meal.For $5.00 you can add an extra chicken or beef patty. The long extras list is reasonably priced costing no more than $1.50 to add an ingredient into the burger, making it even bigger! Diners can even select a bun now including the gluten free option. For those wanting to try a ‘unique to Australia’ burger there is the Shark Bay Prawn or the Roo burger (Kangaroo meat).

Chips and onion rings are really addictive and I personally think no burger is the same without them! The hand cut fried chips were seasoned with salt and rosemary and served with a house made slaw for dipping. The fried onion rings were thick and devilishly delicious especially when dipped into that garlic aioli dip.
House Made Onion Rings ($6.00) and chips ($5.00)
The brioche bun slider contained soft shredded strips of Linley Pork (from Albany in Western Australia), chipotle, balsamic onions, slaw and cheese. A slider is a small burger and after a late lunch earlier on, it was just enough for me. I really loved the tangy sauce.

All beef burgers come with char grilled Amelia Park beef (from the Vasse Region of Western Australia), salad, relish and aioli. The original Pommy burger has a thick slice of bacon and the patty was thick. Blue cheese has a pungent taste, eat anything afterwards and it is bland in comparison. Adding it to a burger is a bold move but the pommy was just delicious with it. Just delicious!

The important part, thickness of the patty
Jus Burgers has always been one of my favourite burger joints in Perth. I like the rich flavours, the toasted buns and sauces. The funky burger bar was one of the first places in Perth to disclose its use of Western Australian produce and these days local produce seems to dictate where I go to eat. The atmosphere is casual and I really like this about Jus Burgers. The Subiaco branch has a small alfresco area set back from the road and during winter there is a heater to keep you warm. Our ‘quick’ dinner was achieved but saying this we did arrive just after 5pm before the evening crowd. The service was friendly and quick.
