The WAAPA with cheese: celebrating International Burger Day with Grindhouse ECU and Short Order Burger Co.

short order burger coMy answer to the question of best burger in Perth is easy: Short Order Burger Co. Usually found lurking in The Mantle at the East end of Freo, the occasions where they venture outwards are always worth a look.

Short Order Burger Co teamed up with the equally-excellent campus cafe Grindhouse to celebrate International Burger Day on Saturday with a tribute to the classic Whopper: the WAAPA with cheese, cunningly named after the Western Australian Academy of Performing Arts (which also lives at ECU in Mount Lawley).

A short fire-alarm delay added to the anticipation, but we eventually received our burgers and…well…the pictures can speak for themselves.

If you’re in Perth and haven’t tried Short Order Burger Co yet, you should be ashamed. Wherever you are, it’s worth the journey. Check out their Facebook page for more info.
