Bürgermeister is the German word for mayor, and this Nedlands burger joint is certainly a leader when it comes to mouth watering eats in the area. The burger menu features a tasty combination of meat, fish and veggie options. Lovers of the latter are able to enjoy felafel amongst their choices, an underrepresented food in the burger department. But burgers are only one half of a delicious double header on the menu – hot dogs take pride of place right by their side. Read full review

We love picnicking. Preparing the snacks, packing it all up and unwrapping a generous spread across the picnic blanket. Don’t you find you always over cater for these little rendezvous? But that’s all the better, because if you find the right spot you can spend all day lolling about in the grass. Read full review
