Busselton food truck Burger Bones is regularly namechecked by Broadsheet as home to some of - if not the best - burgers in Western Australia. If you’ve been keen to try them but not yet made the drive down south, you’re in luck: owner Cooper Deville is bringing Burger Bones to QT Perth for a one-day pop-up on Sunday September 8.
“We haven’t done this before but we’re up for a bit of an experience for our first one,” says Deville. “We just want to come out, give it our best shot and see if we can make them as good as I want them to be.”
Two burgers will be available at the pop-up. The first is the “Yellow Burger”, a classic cheeseburger-with-salad. The second is the “Habanero Smack Patty”: a chilli lover’s delight laced with Dr Paul’s habanero mustard and goat’s cheese. Each burger will cost $20 including a side of fries.
Burgers will be available from 11am to 3pm unless sold out earlier (highly likely). Customers should be prepared to wait (again, also highly likely). In the interests of meeting demand, alterations will not be allowed.
If news of Burger Bones popping-up in Perth wasn’t surprising enough, Deville has also enlisted some heavyweight help for the day in Brendan Pratt, chef at pioneering Margaret River winery Vasse Felix.
“There’s only two of us doing the burgers and we’ll cook as many as we can over three or four hours,” says Deville. “We’re not doing 30 or 40 burgers at a time, we have to do them our way.”
Burger Bones will pop-up in the foyer cafe of QT Perth (133 Murray Street, Perth) on Sunday September 8 from 11am. Bar arrangements are still being finalised, however the QT is expected to be serving beer and other alcoholic beverages.
