Another week, another insanely good burger spot in Perth… Bump In Burger is a tiny eatery, with just a few booths and tables. There’s takeaway too. Though it’s found at Woodvale Shopping Centre, this rockin’ joint is far from suburban.
Bump in Burger is a grungy haven in the straight laced northern suburbs. Any fan of alt rock will love it here and as well as the burgers being named after famous musicians, bands and songs – their soundtrack is very, very cool. While we waited for our burger we enjoyed a little Incubus, Myles Kennedy, Led Zep, as well as Acca Dacca and Pearl Jam. And there’s a feature wall filled with loads of these legends. Love it!
We sat in a booth, which comfortably fits four, skateboard light fittings dangle from the ceiling.
Ordering a burger can be a little tricky, as we wanted to try everything. So, we’ve been a few times… There’s beef burgers, chicken burgers, vego and vegan burgers too. On our first visit, Chef ordered the Eddie Cheddar ($15.50). Between two brioche buns are two of Bump ins juicy handmade Aussie beef patties, crunchy mustard pickle, caramelized onion and extra melting American pepper jack cheddar. Served with home-made relish and Dijon mustard, it hit the spot.
Next time we swung by, Chef ordered the Burger Kill (19.50). This burger is a tower of two Bump In hand made beef patties, crispy streaky bacon, crunchy onion rings, melting American cheddar, a sweet potato hash brown, caramelised onion, fresh crisp lettuce and tomato all finished with home-made Aolli & tomato relish. And fries on the side.Wow!
I chose the bunless version of the same mouth watering burger (both times). And considering there’s no bread, it is still ridiculously filling!
As well as the shoestring fries, There are loads of delicious sides to pick from, including bucket of southern fried chicken, triple cooked spuds, beer battered onion rings, red hot chilli poppers and the mozzarella sticks.
The boys loved the crumbed and fried Mozarella sticks with a napolitana dipping sauce. Gooey, melty, saucy greatness!
Little Chef picked the sliders. There isn’t a kids menu, but the two sliders are a good size for under 10s. Biggie Smalls ($10 for 2) is their chef’s selection of bump in favourites in slider form or if your lucky the taste of things to come. Slider selection changes monthly.
And if you still have room after all that, Ice cream sandwiches are also available. Be sure to bump along to Bump in Burger, to get your hands around a seriously epic burg and a rockin’ atmosphere!
