The owner of East Fremantle’s Young George
has recently branched out with a second
restaurant, Asado, in Claremont. Think
Argentinian-inspired share plates and a compact
wine list highlighting some of WA’s best boutique
producers including Si Vintners, Dormilona, Walsh
& Sons, Marq, and L.A.S . Vino. Just don’t bring
your vego friends. The restaurant’s slogan is ‘no
animal is safe’. 34 St Quentin Avenue, Claremont.
With Krispy Kreme (finally) making
its way to Perth, it’s a wonder we’re
not all obese! But the franchise has
nothin’ on the holey goodness of
these locally made doughnuts.
1. ORANGE & TURMERIC
The coffee crew at Perth’s beloved Top Dup have turned
their sights on something altogether more tasty: doughnuts.
It’s hard to choose a favourite amongst the myriad options.
There’s Strawbs & Cream, Mango Chantilly, Rhubarb &
Custard Crumble, and – naturally – the Long Mac, which is
stuffed with espresso custard. One doughnut that stands
apart is the Orange & Turmeric, whose velvety spiced cream
plays sweet against savoury to produce a doughnut that’s
a little unconventional and a lot tasty.
FIND AT Mo Espresso, Max & Sons Coffee, and Typika
Roasters, to name a few.
2. DOUGHNUTS WITH MILK
JAM AND PEANUT PARFAIT
Ok, take what you think you know about St Michael 6003 in
Highgate (we’re guessing it’s something along the lines of,
“You mean that fancy degustation restaurant I have neither
the money nor wardrobe to dine at?”) and forget it. On
Friday and Sunday mornings, the fine diner turns into
a casual brunch joint cranking out some seriously fun dishes.
Our favourite comes piled high with three sugar-coated
doughnuts, squares of milk jam and a rich peanut-buttery
parfait to dip it all in. Warning: this breakfast contains
a week’s worth of calories. It’s still worth every one.
FIND AT St Michael 6003, Highgate, on Fridays
3. TRADITIONAL BLACKBERRY
Using WA organic wheat flour and rice bran oil, the
blackberry jam-filled doughnut from Levi’s Doughnuts has
won the hearts and bellies of Fremantle Market goers for
the last seven years. These fluffy, decadent doughnuts
ooze flavour, and are baked fresh throughout the day.
Ex-chef-turned-doughnut-maker Levi has really nailed the
traditional, European-style doughnut, and we dig the retro
FIND AT The Freo Markets, Fridays to Sundays.
Other doughnuts we love Hole Food Doughnuts,
created by master of desserts Briony Whitton, and
available at the Mr Drummond’s Foods stall at the
Subi Markets on Saturday mornings.
TOP 3: DOUGHNUTS
Long communal tables,
share plates, mismatched
light fittings, paint-
chipped shutters hanging
from the ceiling – at
first glance, Sauma is
a cookie-cutter replica
of every other new
restaurant in Perth. At
second glance, it’s so
much more: inventive,
modern Indian food not
unlike that served at
sister venue, Maya, in
elements shipped in from
India; an extensive beer
selection (what goes
better with curry?); and
even a lunchtime tiffin
menu. Because, really, who
doesn’t love the idea of
a takeaway lunch served
in those same stackable
metal lunchboxes used
everywhere in India?
200 William Street,
Lucky Chan’s Laundry + Noodlebar
We at Perth Guide love noodles, especially in winter – why else would we put them
on the cover? Naturally, we were first in line to try Lucky Chan’s Laundry + Noodlebar
when it opened in April. The crowd-funded restaurant’s pan-Asian fare focuses on
ramen – the team (the same one behind The Classroom and Cocktail Gastronomy)
spent a year perfecting the noodles and, while they are working out some kinks in
the menu, the yummo vego Umami Monster is perfect just as it is. Same goes for
the three-storey restaurant’s cheeky fit-out. A row of washing-machine doors greets
customers, while inside, a collage of ironing boards climbs alongside the stairs,
beneath washing-basket light fixtures. Best of all? The Lucky Chan’s team will pass
your dirty laundry on to proper cleaners should you be one of the many fooled into
thinking it’s an actual laundromat. 311 William Street, Northbridge.
