New Korean Joints
New CBD fusion restaurant Mix is the place to go for
the latest US dining trend to hit our shores: KoMex,
a mash-up of Korean and Mexican. Think kimchi tacos,
bulgogi burritos and pinto bean and pickled radish
salads. Equus Arcade, 580 Hay Street, Perth.
2. B.Box Korean
Reckon no meal is complete without pickled tomatoes
and fiery kimchi, to a soundtrack of Korean love
ballads? New Mt Lawley restaurant B.Box Korean
offers copious amounts of all three. Order the wood-
fired beef and pork belly, but save room for the Walnut
Cracker dessert. 607 Beaufort Street, Mount Lawley.
3. The Gaya
Gaya opened at the end of 2013, and now the
restaurant is filled most nights. But it hasn’t always
been so easy. “It was rough when we first arrived – we
found that people weren’t very familiar with Korean
food,” says owner Cho Leo. “Our goal is let people
know Korean food is more than just barbecue – it can
be high quality.” 3 Kearns Crescent, Ardross.
Why are there so few good Greek restaurants
in Perth? Aside from Estia Cafe in Inglewood
and Boucla in Subi, the pickings in Perth
are ridiculously slim. No wonder people are
flocking in droves to Brika, Perth’s newest Greek
restaurant. The decor speaks volumes for the
eatery’s dedication to its theme. Nearly all of
the material was shipped to Perth from Greece.
There are paint-chipped 70-year-old shutters,
Naxos marble tables handmade in Athens, and
ancient Drachma coins set within the quatrefoil
stencilled floor. The restaurant has paid equal
attention to its menu, comprised of meze – rustic
share plates created by Brika’s Karpathian/
Canadian chef Stavros Protopapas. Slow-cooked
charcoal lamb, spring roll-shaped spanakopita,
bubbling hot saganaki and the divine baklava
are just some of the must-order dishes. If Greek
is the newest culinary trend to hit WA, we say:
bring it on! 3/177 Stirling Street, Perth.
Five great chefs, one great cause
The annual Starlight Five Chefs dinner, on September 11, will spoil diners with a five-course degustation menu
created by five of WA’s best chefs: Hadleigh Troy of Restaurant Amusé, Guy Jeffreys of Millbrook Winery, Dany Angove
of Leeuwin Estate, Tony Howell of Aravina Estate, and Shane Watson of Print Hall. All proceeds support the Starlight
Children’s Foundation, a non-profit dedicated to assisting ill children and their families. For more information, visit
They say to eat like a king at breakfast. Well, now’s
BABY MAMMOTH | A six-course brunch degustation is
a fixture on Sundays at this Northbridge restaurant. We go
just for the tomato cocktail.
THREE FIVE THREE | Wembley’s favourite fine dining
restaurant has fancied up breakfast by serving a pre-booked
five-course breakfast dego on the weekends.
WILD WEST WHISKY
Attention, whisky fans. On 30 July, CBD
restaurant 1907 will be hosting an event that
pays homage to the country’s best whisky
producers. The night will kick off with
a masterclass of whiskies by Trapper’s Hut,
Lark Distillery, Heartwood, Overeem and WA’s
very own Great Southern Distilling Company,
producers of the popular Limeburners.
Afterwards, guests will enjoy a whisky-inspired
degustation meal along with speeches by
distillers Cameron Syme and Ron Carthew.
Fact: all it takes is a single bite of the beef ribs at Varnish on
King to become a lifelong fan of the King Street bourbon bar.
Head chef David Allison (formerly of Melbourne’s acclaimed
Vue de Monde restaurant) is earning even more admirers with
his new Chef’s Table series, comprising five courses matched
with premium whisky, wine, beer, sparkling and cider. For more
