If you ever find yourself in Perth, Fremantle craving a juicy, meaty burger, I highly recommend Flipside. To tackle a Flipside burger, you need all your fingers. It is huge and extremely messy to eat. But it is also without a doubt, one of the best burgers I have ever sunk my teeth into.
To start, choose between their 100% beef patty, tender free-range chicken breast, or a vegetarian spicy chick pea and sweet potato patty, and load up with toppings freestyle, or if you prefer to be guided, choose from their vast menu. I had my beef burger with mashed avocado, a fried egg (with lovely, runny yolk) and home-made tomato relish, all sandwiched in a lightly-charred bun. Plus the requisite side of thick, hand-cut fries dusted with flaky sea salt.
The burger was a thing of beauty, and truly scrumptious. The patty was robust, had a great bite to it, seasoned to perfection and juicy as can be. My son ordered from the kids’ menu, and had a “Mini Flip” beef burger with fresh lettuce and tomato within. He loved it so much that he barely uttered a sound during the meal. He particularly enjoyed the delicious fries and ate half of the (not small) order.
While I was there, I saw many customers tucking into the “Chilli-ander chicken” burger. It was grilled chicken breast topped with chilli jam, rocket leaves, a small heap of corriander and mayo. It looked so fresh and zingy that I made a mental note to order it on my next visit. I never fail to a have good meal at Flipside. To all aficionados out there, I strongly urge you to give their burgers a go on your next trip to Perth.
