Location: 97 Francis Street, Northbridge, WA, 6003

Price Range: $12-$15

Cuisine: Faux-Americana Hot Dogs, Fries and Burgers

Alcohol Options: Frisk’s Small Bar next door (2pm - 11pm)

Any given Sunday is always a good day to chow down on hot dogs and burgers.

This little out of the way eatery, draped in a colourful, chippy turquise and yellow colour scheme serves some of the greasiest burgers and hot dogs. The Burgers are wet, oily and they stick together and can be gorged on without the assistance of cutlery (++!!), and the fries are crunchy, if somewhat undersalted. I would really like to try the hot dogs, they look really mouthwatering.

The meal portions are pretty medium, but nonetheless filling. This is compensated by the reasonable price, with the cheapest item starting at 12. Service times can be a bit slow if the venue gets a bit crowded or is taking multiple orders at once.

Location is pretty poor, right across the road from Holey Moley, and down the road from the big Greek Orthodox Church, and in an empty locale most of the time.

Freo's Old Shanghai | Emlyn Johnson reviews Beef Noodle Soup

I went to Shanggerz Sunday Night to get a Beef Noodle Soup from the Thai place.

I don't know if there's anything particularly Thai about their Beef Noodle Soup (is it copying Vietnamese Pho?) but it’s good and its cheap - the Small comes in at $7.50. The Small is, in my view, the size to go for. The Large is $10 but who can comfortably finish a Large noodle soup down to every last broth-bit and noodle? Not many. Studies have not been done but I don't imagine it would be more than 15% people.

The Beef Noodle Soup consists of a yummy broth, flat rice noodles, some weird and round processed Beef Balls, some no spherical pieces of beef, and a handful of chopped up Bok Choi. Compared to say, the lemony, spicy Tom Yum, also available from the Thai, the Beef Noodle Soup really only tastes like a combination of beef and hot water and salt, which is what I wanted. And it was hot.
