David Blackmore’s Full-blood Wagyu Beef Burger

Gone are the days when your only option for burger was McDonalds or Hungry Jacks or the burger from your local which was trimmed with tinned pineapple, fried egg and beetroot. Burgers, like many other foods, have followed the trend and gone gourmet.

Think premium ingredients like marbled beef, free range bacon, wasabi mayo and Swiss cheese, and in most cases this new breed of burger has a price tag to match its fancy ingredients.

Wagyu beef is often the star of this show, elevating the humble meal designed for the everyman into the upper echelons of fine dining.

From the bar menu at Neil Perry’s Rockpool Bar & Grill Perth (no reservation required), David Blackmore’s full-blood wagyu beef burger is one of the best: brioche bun, magnificent wagyu beef patty cooked to perfection, Gruyere cheese, house-made Zuni pickle, Schulz house-smoked bacon and relish ($24).

Order it with hand-cut chips ($12) or red onion rings in tempura batter served with house-made ketchup ($9). Be warned that the serving of hand cut chips is enormous and could be shared between 2 or 3 comfortably.

I rate this burger as one of the best I have ever tasted mainly due to the fact the pattie tastes so delicious you could eat it on it’s own like a steak. This is the burger by which all other burgers must be measured.
