A stroll down Albany Highway in Victoria Park is like going into IKEA—it is dangerous but oh so good. Bursting with delish eats from all over the globe, bars, boutiques and fitness finds to help you keep on top of all of that food—it’s no secret that this ‘burb is absolutely vibing.
Here’s our pick of everything you should be eating, drinking, buying and doing in Victoria Park.
Antz In Ya Pantz
There is a reason Antz In Ya Pantz has locals lining up for their coffee like their life depended on it. Apart from their addictive coffee, the bagels are fresh and delicious AF. Get around the rosemary bagel with sundried tomato spread, you won't regret it.
Harvest Espresso is home to some of Vic Park’s finest coffee and is undoubtedly one of the best breakfasts in Perth—it’s no wonder there are queues out the door every day. Walking in you’ll be greeted with a warm smile and the scent of fresh coffee (AKA happiness). Their menu is seasonal and always amazing, so we recommend checking it out on the regs!
Flaming steaks, char-grilled meats and epic desserts are just a few of the incredible eats you’ll find at Asian fusion restaurant Hey Griller in Victoria Park. Sitting pretty on Albany Highway, Hey Griller blends traditional Asian flavours with modern Australian food in unexpected ways. Divided into entrees, salads, skewers and grilled sections, the menu is full of things you’ll want to try, so go with a bunch of friends and share the lot!
Himalayan Nepalese Restaurant
Himalayan Nepalese Restaurant is one of those gems that you need to be told about, otherwise you’d probably drive straight past it. Luckily, we’re more than happy to spread the word! The momos are an absolute must—choose from chicken, lamb or veg, they’re all as good as each other—but there won’t be much on the menu that you won’t want to indulge in!
Kuza Urban Japanese Food
Kuza has nailed the twists and turns of Japanese fusion with their mouth watering eats! The wonderful staff will walk you through the menu if you’re not really sure what’s going on, but the dishes you just HAVE to try are the karaage chicken, assorted sashimi and eggplant misoyaki. You’re welcome.
Neho Asian Tapas
Arriving at Neho Asian Tapas is as delightful as the neon lights and hilarious signs that do-but-don’t make sense. Boasting a pretty impressive Asian fusion menu, it’s hard to go here without wanting to order everything. The tea smoked duck, rendang short ribs and Hatyai fried chicken is a winning combo if you really need to narrow things down!
Arguably one of the best Thai restaurants in Perth, Red Basil is sitting pretty on bustling Albany Highway. The smell of fragrant Thai aromas will fill your nostrils and get those bellies rumbling. There are only a few tables and they will most likely be taken if you don't get there early. Unfortunately they don’t do bookings so you’ll either have to try your luck by walking in or just get takeaway—which is still just as good. Their chilli and basil pork belly is ridiculously mouth watering.
Located in the heart of Vic Park, this beloved cafe is a fave amongst locals and has Perthies passing through for their caffeine fix. You can sit inside, outside or by the window—so it’s absolutely perfect for people watching if you’re into that kind of thing. The Imp's delightful breakfast menu will have you umming and ahhing about what to order, but everything’s good so you really can’t go wrong.
The Prophet Lebanese Cafe
If you’re feeling slightly adventurous and wanting to try something different, The Prophet Lebanese Cafe will not disappoint. Small and cosy with a homely feel and a remarkable menu to match, there won’t be much that you won’t want to try. Give the falafel, ladies fingers, omelette, eggplant, hot fish and the cauliflower a try.
