Whether you’re looking for an insane collection of Japanese whiskey, a place to dance the night away or some out-of-this-world bar snacks, Goody Two's in Hibernian Place is where you need to be.
Goody Two's comes to us from Perth hospo rockstars Andy Freeman (Varnish on King, Big Bopper and Hadiqa are just a few of his other spots around town), Eamon Sullivan and Scott Bridger (the power duo behind Bib & Tucker and May Street Larder) and if their first venture together is anything to go by, we’ve got our fingers crossed for many more.
The menu is all bar food but it’s far from the average chips and burgers and you’d be more than happy to fill yourself to the brim here. Think Japanese inspired eats like miso cauliflower bao, tempura fries, and Goody's fried chicken with Kewpie mayo.
And if you’re a bit strapped for cash (aren’t we all?), rest easy: Goody Two's slings $1 dumplings every Thursday from 5 pm – 9 pm and $5 Espresso Martinis every Friday from 8 pm – 9 pm. Plus, they've also just launched their new mid-week menu where you can get four share plates for just $35 and a tasty cocktail caraffe for $30.
When it comes to the drinks, Japanese whiskey is the name of the game. Three pages of the five-page drinks menu are dedicated to it so take your pick from anything, from the $16 Matusi 532 Red to the $142 Akashi Cask 8 year sherry matured single malt from White Oak Distillery.
If your Japanese whiskey game isn’t all that strong, never fear, their highballs will give you just the taste you need. The Goodys Highball is the perfect introduction to the world of whiskey with Kakubin whisky, lemon and genmaicha—a Japanese brown rice green tea.
