With the curve well and truly flattening and restrictions slowly easing in WA, we’re pretty pumped to see some of Perth’s best restaurants and cafes re-opening their doors for business.
Obviously it’s all still takeaway for now, but we’d happily eat these meals at home for the rest of time if it means showing some love to these Perth restaurants as they come back with a vengeance.
Here’s where we’re looking forward to eating next in Perth.
Balthazar At Home
If you fancy a spot of fine dining at home, Balthazar is your ticket. They just launched their At Home menu which is three courses of taste bud tingling goodness for two people. Chef Luke Wakefield and the team will get the meals prepped and ready, all you’ll need to do is finish them off by following their very simple instructions. You can also get matched wines and turn up the volume on their Spotify playlist so you can have that real restaurant experience at home. Each week, there’s a $100 voucher up for grabs for the most creative plating up, so get your Masterchef skills up to scratch and upload that baby to Instagram. You’ll need to get your orders in by 5pm on Wednesday for a Friday or Saturday night dinner, so tine into their Insta on Sunday to see what next week's menu looks like.
Short Order Burger Co
Fremantle and Perth
Short Order Burger Co re-opened last night so you know we’ll be there this weekend. Whether you’re after a classic cheeseburger or their Fiery Short Order Burger filled with jalapenos, sriracha may and jalapeno mayo, you really can’t go wrong. Of course, vegos can treat themselves to a mushroom burger and whatever your dietary preferences, don’t forget to add some shoestring fries and maybe even a malted milkshake too.
In case you missed it, Si Paradiso is open for takeaway and they are sending out some delicious wines with their eats. This week we’re feeling the Porchetta Panino—Paradiso bread, porchetta, cos lettuce, pickle, chilli, herbs and mayo—or for something more substantial, the Cotoletta Milanese. Whatever you choose, pair it with one of Sam Vinciolos’ wines and you’ve got yourself a meal to remember. Open 5pm to 8:30pm from Wednesday to Saturday and 2pm to 8:30pm on Sunday, you’ve got plenty of time to get your order in.
Core Cider House
If you happen to be taking a road trip out Pickering way, you might want to stop in at the most scenic bottle shop in town. Fill up your squealers and growlers or load up on cans of the good stuff at Core Cider House. They'll be open Saturday and Sunday from 11am to 3pm so you can pick up some cider before your picnic in the hills.
Pinchos | Open Saturday 2 May
For those of you craving a taste of Spain, Pinchos will be open as of Saturday 2 May for takeaway. You'll be able to get your hands on their famous chicken and chorizo paella from 12noon until 2:30pm on Saturdays and Sundays, while the dinner menu is available from 5pm to 9pm from Wednesday to Sunday.
The Flour Factory | Open Monday 4 May
The Flour Factory’s parent company Sneakers and Jeans is still set to open Pirate Life Perth this year, but considering it’s on hold for now they’re bringing it to the Flour Factory with cans, growlers and merch available to takeaway as of Monday 4 May. Of course, with booze comes food so you can treat yourself to The Flour Factory’s iconic charcuterie for two or a 1kg grass-fed organic tomahawk t-bone in a paprika marinade, which you can cook to your liking at home. Available from Monday to Friday from noon to 6pm, just remember to order 24 hours in advance if you want the tomahawk.
Boucla | Open Saturday 9 May
We couldn’t be happier that Boucla is re-opening just in time for Mother’s Day. Beginning next Saturday, they’ll be open for takeaway seven days a week from 7am to 2pm, so go ahead and treat mum to a takeaway brunch she won’t want to share. If you’re too excited to wait, you can pre-order one of their famous cakes right now.
