The Australian Hotels Association WA (AHA WA) has announced the finalists for its 2024 Best Steak Sandwich Competition, which is now in its 17th year.

Seventy venues entered the competition this year, with the finalists determined through public voters and mystery judge visits throughout the month of May.

The judges rated the tenderness of the meat (beef or lamb), composition and presentation, originality and  creativity, chips, sauces, flavour and value for money.

AHA WA CEO Bradley Woods said WA’s Best Steak Sandwich competition was a local institution that attracts huge support across the state every year.

“It’s terrific to see so many venues, both in country WA and the Perth metro area, entering the competition this year and the public engaging early and voting, making this an epic contest.

“The culinary effort of participating chefs has been outstanding, the competition is fierce and the bragging rights enormous, so we are all set for an exciting cook-off in a few weeks’ time,” said Woods.

The finalists in WA’s Best Steak Sandwich competition are:

Country WA finalists

  • North West Brewing Company (Karratha)
  • The Rec Hotel Waroona (Waroona)
  • Settlers Tavern (Margaret River)
  • Treendale Farm Hotel (Australind)

Perth metro finalists

  • Hillarys Beach Club  (Hillarys)
