Short Order Burger Co Fremantle
Short Order Burger Co started its journey in Fremantle’s The Mantle (now Sunshine Harvester) back in 2015 and quickly developed a reputation as some of WA’s benchmark burgers. Five years on, owner Simon Kony put down permanent roots in the port city with a licensed restaurant opposite Town Hall.
The 80-seat venue, designed by Mata Design, is reminiscent of Hay Street’s 1950’s-diner vibe. (It’s been built in the remains of an old souvenir store.)
One of the most striking aspects of this location is the sheer amount of natural light, which makes for an inviting dining experience.
The menu features a familiar selection of beef and chicken burgers, with the Nashville Hot Chicken Sandwich thankfully a permanent addition. The vegetarian option has been levelled up with a new fried falafel-like patty made from lupins, chickpeas and beetroot.
Perhaps the biggest upgrade to the Short Order concept is the addition of a liquor license. With it comes a strong focus on local wines such as Local Weirdos and Old Mate, plus a boozy maple-pecan-bourbon milkshake. Beer is from Rocky Ridge Brewing Co and includes a custom Short Order house brew.
