While Mount Lawley is undergoing somewhat of a face-lift, you might like to think about trekking up Beaufort Street to Inglewood. Home of some tasty Greek, American and Himalayan fare, as well as a cute cafe and bake shop, this little pocket of Perth has been on the up and up in recent years.
Here’s where you should eat in Inglewood this weekend!
Inglewood is home to one of the best Greek restaurants in Perth, Estia. Serving up all the classic Greek dishes you know and love, the pita bread at Estia Restaurant is delicious! It’s thin, lightly salted, there is a lot of it and it’s served with a trio of yummy dips (hummus and tzatziki included). Their moussaka and spanakopita are spot on and the chocolate and salted caramel slice with baklava ice cream is a must-try for dessert. Coffee fans might like to give their traditional Greek coffee a go too, even just to watch how it’s poured, and these guys stock enough Ouzo and Greek wine to get you happily sloshed in the true Greek way. Opa!
Himalayan Nepalese Restaurant & Cafe
Inglewood’s own little slice of the Himalayas, this cheap and cheerful restaurant on Beaufort Street is a fave among the locals. Get started with some tasty momos (Nepalese-style dumplings) and samosas, then move on to the mains. The chicken ra saag (chicken and spinach) curry is equally as delicious as the khashi ko tandruk (lamb) curry, and the doughy garlic naan calls out for the pancha mukhi daal (spiced lentils) to dip into. This little Inglewood gem is fully licenced too!
Miss Kitty’s Saloon
Home of all our American favourites, Miss Kitty’s Saloon in Inglewood is the perfect place to go if you’re bulking. Poutine, mac ‘n’ cheese, corn bread, fried pickles and ribs—they’ve got all the tasties and a killer cocktails list to boot. AND adding to their awesome status, Miss Kitty’s are also open for brunch, serving up chicken ‘n’ waffles, fig and pulled pic brioche, flap jacks and home-made iced tea. It’s American heaven and no guns!
Finlay & Sons no 917
Keeping the local’s coffee addiction in check, Finlay & Sons no 917 in Inglewood also serve some super naughty, but delicious treats. There’s profiteroles, Nutella-filled doughnuts, cookies ‘n’ cream cupcakes and honeycomb and chocolate cronuts. If you’re not a big coffee fan, Finlays also whip up refreshing iced teas and they stock juices from Inner Ego. It’s your perfect all-rounder neighbourhood cafe!
Sugar & Nice
For the prettiest cakes you ever did see head to Inglewood’s Sugar & Nice. Self control, move aside! It's impossible to walk away from this place with any less than a box of decadent desserts—think cronuts, cupcakes, brownies and cakes. Any cronut is a good cronut, but it's pretty hard to pass up the peanut butter and jam beauties. You'll be skipping home on a sugar high to last a century. If you're after a made-to-order cake, look no further than Sugar & Nice.
A Fish Called Inglewood
Love Inglewood and seafood? Head to A Fish Called Inglewood on Beaufort Street for some delish fish and other fare from the sea! We can’t go past the cider battered fish and chips, but if you’re after something a little fancier the Barramundi with an Asian salad of green mango, peanuts and shallots is goooood. Before you go grab a scoop of A Fish Called Inglewood’s home-made ice-cream sticks—the mango, mandarin and toasted choc is too good to be passed up.
