Sage in Victoria Park has been running as a cafe—dishing up killer breakfasts, lunches, coffees and juices—for a few years now, but they're answering our prayers with a new dinner service in their restaurant as of Friday 5 June and we can't wait.
You can expect modern Australian eats with dishes like buffalo stracciatella with pickled plums and house cured salmon with avocado, wasabi and samphire, gracing the list of smaller dishes. For something more substantial, we're digging the sound of the pappardelle with ox tail ragu and the confit pork loin with roast fennel.
The menu is super vegetarian-friendly (almost half of the dishes are vego) and we can't wait for the day we can go and devour the roasted beets with farro, the mushrooms with goats curd and hazelnut pangrattato and the cauliflower steak with green chutney, chickpeas and goat’s cheese.
When it comes to drinks, expect a small-ish but beautifully curated wine list dominated by local drops with a few international labels thrown in for good measure, West Aussie beers and a cocktail list that makes it almost impossible to choose just one. Our first order is going to be the Teased Bees Knees—Pigskin gin, earl grey, honey and lemon—but we've also got our eyes on the Matcha Matcha Man and the Med Margarita which has a creative basil twist.
Details on how and when you'll be able to book are yet to come so watch this space or follow Sage on Facebook for the latest juicy info.
