G'day all, we'll be in Perth in a couple of weeks and looking for advice. I post occasionally on the Asia boards (mainly on Singapore, Korea & Japan) & have looked through the Aussie board, but the newest post on Perth is from 2012 & the main recommendations are for Margaret River (which we won't be able to get to this time unfortunately). So from research on food blogs & review sites, what I've come up with are:
Brika (greek, best for dinner)
Corica (apple strudels & pastries in general)
El Publico (mexican, small plates)
Harvest Espresso (brunch)
Lalla Rookh (italian)
Must (French bistro, lunch or dinner)
Old Crow (soul food, brunch or dinner - I saw the chef's changed a few months back?)
Pleased to Meet You (small plates)
Twilight Hawkers Market (food trucks)
Viet Hoa (casual vietnamese)
Am I on the right track here? I did read earlier posts suggesting that food blogging in Perth tends to be more focused on the trendy than the tasty.
There'll be a few older folks coming along so we'll probably steer away from places that are noisy (which I guess rules out Varnish on King - not sure if that'll be an issue for Must too). Some veggie options on the menu would be good too, so I've not really gone for the more 'dude food' places. Lastly, where possible we're trying to stick to a budget so I've skipped the pricier places where the minimum is $50 & up per person. (That rules out a lot more places in Perth than I would've originally thought!)
Nearly forgot to add, we'll probably make a stop in Swan Valley too, so any recs there would be great.
Thanks in advance for your thoughts.
