We love a good hot dog around town.
And here are a few of the best spots around Perth to grab your own sausage + bun combo:
Ah, the age old saying. What a better way to start your day than with a … hot dog? Well, with Wassup Dog’s juicy Breakfast Dog, a delicious mix of pork cheese Kanski, crispy fried onion, bacon, topped with fried egg and your choice of sauces, you’ll want to do just that. What started in 2013 as a hotdog stand in King’s Square Fremantle has now become an oasis of sausage-in-a-bun innovation. Expanding to now offer a full daily menu, it would be a crying shame not to order a delicious, gourmet hot dog next time you visit.
113 Royal Street, East Perth
Burgermeister may be most recognised for their juicy burgers, but their hot dogs are just as impressive, if not more delicious. Located on the Hampden Road strip in Nedlands, this popular spot has locals running back for more with mouthwatering items like the Hot Frenchman, with bratwurst, green chili jam, bacon, camembert cheese and sriracha mayo. Next time you’re in the area, have a peak at their ‘Not Just Burger’ menu – it’ll change your life.

Run Amuk, South Fremantle
In 2011, the creators of Run Amuk were sitting by a campfire making fancy hot dogs with ingredients found in their esky. From that moment, the ideas just kept on rolling to eventually become the restaurant in South Fremantle that is today. Unleash yourself and try one of their scrumptious concoctions like the Rueben, with premium bratwurst, Russian dressing, maasdam cheese, sauerkraut, Run Amuk house pickles, pastrami, American mustard, chili flakes and fresh dill – it’s the hot dog of your dreams.

Served in freshly baked bread rolls with sauerkraut andonion, these hotdogs are simple but fulfilling, claiming the title of the ‘best wurst in town’.

Alfred’s Kitchen, Guildford
Is there anything more iconic in Perth than sitting in front of the large glowing fire at Alfred’s Kitchen in Guildford, sipping on a cup of toasty pea and ham soup? Well yes, there is – because if you’re not eating their famous hot dog too then you’re not doing it right. Their renowned hot dog features a round bun with a sliced sausage, cheese and onion: simple, yet delicious. After all, they’ve been operating since 1946, so they’re obviously doing something right!
