I will be the first to admit that when it comes to comfort food, I have the worst habits. If it’s not cheesecake or a burger, it’s a waste of time, and I could SAY that the inclination to exercise is strong enough to counteract this predisposition, but really what I’m doing is heading to exercise locations where there will be food for me to eat afterwards…
Enter Hood Burger.

Partnering with the Bayswater Bowling and Recreation Club to monopolise on the hungry Friday night Street Roller Hockey League crowd was a smart move on the part of Hood Burger, and everyone benefits. With simple, straightforward flavours (a choice between single or double cheeseburgers made with high quality ingredients) plus a range of extras to mix it up a little – spicy Jalapeño sauce or Hotline [onion] Rings, Hood Burgers satisfy those basest of cravings, perfect for a Friday night treat.
Option I Chose: I always go with the single burger with cheese as it’s exactly the right amount. I always think about asking for no onion, but am often too caught up to remember.
Notable Alternative: Add chips on the side if you want a little extra, particularly if you like your fries a little crunchy.
While “burger lovers who want to spend their night watching roller hockey” might be a niche market, the Venn diagram of that niche market and “burger lovers who want to spend their night watching roller hockey and who agree that Hood Burger is the way to go about it” is a circle. I may be biased, based on how I spend my Sundays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays too, but Fridays at the hockey with a Hood Burger are becoming a tradition. And hey, they’re also perfect for a first date if you like to know your other half doesn’t mind getting down and messy.
Don’t just take my word for it: The Urban List also considers them in their “Top 25 Fat Feeds of Perth” list.
