Pizzeria Da Baffetto in Rome may be credited with first putting fried eggs on pizza, but
Aussies have wholeheartedly embraced the controversial topping. A few Perth restaurants
have taken the trend a step further, featuring egg-topped pizza on their breakfast menus.
Hats off to Portofinos and Bib & Tucker: the latter’s comes topped not only with eggs but
also charred bacon, vegies and buffalo mozzarella. Pancakes, your days are numbered.
If you haven’t been to The Flour Factory since
it opened last spring, it’s time to take a second
look. The CBD restaurant has since undergone
a massive remodel, expanding into what was
once Venn’s ground-floor retail space. Its most
impressive upgrades? A 15m jarrah bar running
the entire length of the restaurant, and a mill that
the kitchen crew uses to produce its own flour for
the bread and pizza bases. Plus, for some serious
bragging rights, the bar stocks the CBD’s largest
selection of gin and fortifieds, along with WA’s
only locally made vermouth from Howard Park
Wines. If that doesn’t convince you, what will?
16 Queen Street, Perth.
The venue once home to dego restaurant Three
Five Three has been reborn as Hermosa Cantina
on Cambridge, a stylish Wembley eatery serving
Spanish-inspired fare for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
Head chef George Fowler, who’s cheffed at the likes of
Grossi Florentino in Melbourne and London Michelin-
starred restaurant Pollen Street Social, runs the joint
with business partner Garry Kemp, of Tropico fame.
Similarities with the North Beach cafe abound – same
Will & Co coffee, wall art from Perth-based artist Chris
Nixon and breezy, upmarket vibe. George says that
people can’t get enough of the Spanish tapas-style
share plates. “The great thing about Spanish cuisine
is that you can put almost anything on a plate, so
long as the ingredients are really top notch,” says
George. “We import everything from Spain that we
can’t get here in WA – Iberico and Serrano jamon,
hazelnuts (which are seriously the best in the world),
pimento powder, vinegar and heaps of Spanish
booze.” Standouts on the menu include a compressed
watermelon salad with almonds and an unreal miso-
infused butterscotch, the crispy smoked hock and
morcilla sausage croquette, or anything that comes from
the Josper – a handmade Spanish coal-driven oven that
George swears by for its ability to trap heat and smoke.
353 Cambridge Street, Wembley.
