We love to stop by Mary Street Bakery when the sun rises,
for a coffee and salted caramel doughnut. But we love
them equally when the light fades, thanks to new restaurant
Mary’s, which pops up after dark, Wednesday through
Saturday. From the outside, the place looks shut, so you’ll
have sneak through the side, ninja-style. But being stealthy
is totally worth it: you’ll be rewarded with Asian fusion
deliciousness and a stellar drink list, featuring sake, shochu
and soju cocktails, and orange wine. Just when you thought
it couldn’t get cooler, there’s a BYO, buy-and-sell vinyl
station set up near the usual entrance.
507 Beaufort Street, Highgate.
JAMEL’S PIZZA AT
WA fashion royalty Fenella Peacock – she’s one-third of
Antipodium, and designs her eponymous label – owns
Nell’s Emporium, a Mosman Park treasure trove. But in
the evenings, from Tuesday to Sunday, her husband Jamel
takes the place over, turning the courtyard into a wood-fired
pizza garden. The prices are reasonable; the service
is impeccable. You’ll feel like you’re at a dinner party of
an old friend who loves you very, very much.
15 Glyde Street, Mosman Park.
SHORT ORDER BURGER CO
Some might argue The Mantle is something of a hidden
treasure itself, a Fremantle dining co-op in a cavernous
warehouse near the train station. But Short Order Burger
Co, the Mantle’s newest resident, takes it up another notch,
popping up sporadically in a container. All its premium beef
burgers are generous and juicy, but the heart-attack-inducing
Quad Burger – a whopping four meat patties heaped with
equal amounts of cheese – takes the steak. Trust us, it’s
worth acquiring a food baby (okay, quadruplets) for.
1 James Street, Fremantle.
For years, Stimulatte has been the go-to for Subi workers
seeking caffeination and comfort food with a healthful
twist. Now, from 5pm, the place transforms into Tommy
Sugo, a fledgling chain that doles out pasta in chic take-out
containers. No, that’s not an oxymoron. Whether your
tastes skew traditional (extra virgin olive and parmesan;
egg linguine) or more exotic (wild mint spelt ravioli; nut-free
kale sauce), you’ll relish the speedy service and competitive
prices. On a side note, you might’ve spotted the Perth duo
behind Tommy Sugo, Nathan Baws and brother-in-law Joel
Sneeuwjagt, presenting the idea to entrepreneur reality
show Shark Tank. Spoiler alert: they received funding, but
not as much as they’d hoped.
361 Hay Street, Subiaco.
Mount Hawthorn dwellers, don’t you dare pick up
frozen pizza from IGA. No, go through an alley to the
store’s underground carpark instead, where you’ll enter
Neighborhood Pizza through wrought-iron gates. Inside,
it’s half Brooklyn industrial loft, with concrete floors and
exposed beams, and half Southern saloon, with a pool
table, American flag, and crooning blues on the radio.
You could go here for the atmosphere alone; the delicious
artisanal pizza is just the topping.
Anvil Lane, Mount Hawthorn.
THIS LITTLE PIGGY
We feasted on the pulled-pork rolls and homemade
ice-cream sandwiches all summer long at this cute
Southern-Cali-meets-Mexican pop-up joint in North
Freo. They closed up end of May but are set to reopen
in a couple of months. Where? Well, it’s a secret...
